Service Technician (Former Employee), Albuquerque, NM – April 24, 2015
Typical day at work best described as a mess. I learned a lot of patience and that management was only there to tell you your not good enough. I also learned a lot about dealing with all sorts of people and expectations when you enter a customers home.
Consultive Sales Associate (Former Employee), Dothan, AL – April 24, 2015
A typical work day at Sears included a customer coming in who was interested in some appliances. The first thing to do would be to greet the customer and find out his or her needs. Once you find out his or her need then you can match them to the appliance that would best serve the customer. There were also days that you had to take a customer and show them where things were located in other departments in the store.

Management Training Intern (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – April 22, 2015
Pros: benefits and compensation
The internship is a great opportunity for aspiring college students to immerse themselves in a stable retail environment. The opportunities to learn and advance are enormous but cutbacks over the time since the position concluded make that much more difficult now than previously. Management was knowledgeable, inviting and supportive. The schedule is wholly inflexible as most workers there are full time.
