Loved being in customer service; disliked the drama
CaC Lead and Fine Jewelry coordinator (Former Employee), Heath, OHApril 24, 2015
Angela Decker runs the store as if it is High School and fuels drama. I loved being in customer service and I was very good at what I did, but the associates are full of drama.

Never good enough
Service Technician (Former Employee), Albuquerque, NMApril 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.

Knowledgeable Enviornment
Consultive Sales Associate (Former Employee), Dothan, ALApril 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.

Fun and easy workplace
Sales associate (Current Employee), Danbury, CTApril 23, 2015
Sears happens to be a great company to work for. They push you to turn customers into members and also push you really hard for credit card applications in which you get $2 or $4 commission on.

no available hours, management stresses easily and takes it out on employees, and employees are unhappy with work environment.

flexible schedule
footwear associate (Current Employee), Memphis TennesseeApril 22, 2015
Pros: paid training
Cons: not enough hours per week.
The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to help our members in anyway I can. A typical wok day at Sears includes stocking and relocating shoes based on display directions an full-filling online order as needed. My co-workers are very reliable and helpful. The management is professional and precise. The hardest part of my job would have to be the bending up and down while do weekly DV scans. Since working at sears I have learn the importance of working together as a team to get the job done.

Nothing but retail
Management Training Intern (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAApril 22, 2015
Pros: benefits and compensation
Cons: fexibility
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.
