Retail sales in the appliances department.
Commission Salesman (Former Employee), New Castle, PennsylvaniaSeptember 29, 2014
Pros: customer service experience, sales experience
Cons: very short breaks, little customer traffic, and poor advertisement.
Sears was a good job when I started there. Business was good and considering I was on "the draw" which is basically commission- good business meant good paychecks for me. It was good for a while but once the store started to lose business and fewer and fewer customers were coming in. I was one of the top salesmen on the sales floor and saw my numbers – more... plummeting due to the small customer concentration. I switched departments due to this and went from commission to hourly rate pay. I was at the hardware department for a while and was eventually "let go" due to the small numbers of customers. Corporate sent the message to my store to cut people from the staff that weren't a high necessity (basically people that were there for a year or less.) I was one out of about 9 or 10 employees cut. – less

Coworkers were helpful, but management struggled. Very high turn around rate. The hardest part of the job was miscommunication between the managers.

Sell! Sell! Sell!
CSA Lead (Former Employee), Cumberland, MDSeptember 28, 2014
Pros: coworkers
Cons: management
I was a CSA. You are required to be off the sales floor 30% of the time. I was to do scheduling for the sales floor, inventory, planograms, stocking, and act as stand-in manager when the store manager was not there (which was more often than not). His whole philosophy was "There should be no reason why any reason should ever get to me". My 70% of time – more... on the sales floor was for the most part enjoyable. It was commission based so you definitely had to have the salesman mentality. – less
