Sears is a place where you work in a team environment,
Fine Jewelry Consultant (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZAugust 31, 2015
Pros: getting more money and the barbecues. meeting people
Cons: hearing how the customer was robbed of their personal items
Sears is a friendly place to work. We love to smile and help our customers with their everyday needs.Lots of ways to earn more money by signing up customers to apply for a credit card, accident free days earns us a barbecue!!! For me a typical day would to make announcements for whats on sale, to show items to customers and help them with their decisions on what to purchase. Our store manager is awesome! He makes us wants to reach higher on our goals. The worker do teamwork and when they finish their tasks they go help others. My personal enjoyable part of my job is that I get to meet so many wonderful people from all over the world!!

More about appliances than I thought I would ever know.
Great store management, they did their best to try to rebuild their store.
For a commission sales team, competitive but helpful.
Not making the sale was the hardest part, but when I did make that sale it was great.

Decent Job that Could be Rewarding
Sales Consultant (Former Employee), Lansing, MIAugust 31, 2015
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.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), West Haven, CTAugust 29, 2015
If your a hard worker determined to make money then you will do great here but if your looking for a job to sit around this isn't it. In order to make commission you have to work or you will get paid minimum wage
