Pros: Management works well with schedule and Rewarding pay when done well
Cons: Customer traffic can be low at times, Lack of focus higher up the ladder
The position I had with Sears was commission-based, which was pretty much where the rewarding aspects of this job began and ended. Management was fine. They did a good job of working with the employees, many of which were students, but weren't necessarily the best motivators/teachers. Most of the co-workers were cool, no more jerks than you'd fine in any job setting. The biggest gripes I had with the company came from the lack of advancement opportunities, as it seemed as though most of the management was was well entrenched in their respective positions, and the job culture. Not that there were bad people, simply that motivations, incentives, best practices, and just overall focus of the company seemed to switch every couple of days. Being in the retail environment you come to expect your expectations to change fluidly but at some point I felt the company should at least stick to some fundamentals. In the end, I find that the job could be rewarding after you set aside all the things distracted from the be all end all. Sales Metrics.
