Very Creative process
Visual Stylist (VMS) (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PADecember 11, 2014
I would come in and asset the floor. Make sure that the tables and frontline were up to part so when customers come in they would see it clean. Then i would pick a department that has been low on sale and figured out a way to in-hance the profit by providing compelling displays and switching the floor around. Then i would train the new hires on how – more... to maintain the floor and on the national presentation standards. – less

Old school company who relies on word of mouth
Senior Technician (Former Employee), Columbus, OHDecember 11, 2014
typical day at work would be traveling through the city cleaning residential properties. I learned how to maintain expensive purchases for your home. Management has tons of experience in this field. Co workers all have vast knowledge of products. Dealing with customers is hardest part of job.

Slow day. You learn warehouse management and running forklift. Management is good and co-workers are pleasant. Hardest part of the job is helping customers. Best part of the job is also helping customers.

Pros: good employees.
Cons: nothing.
On a typical day at work I'm mostly handling the cash registers while assisting customers whenever they need help deciding what to buy. I also helped customers load heavy appliances and furniture to their vehicle. It was a great environment to work at.

productive, fast paced, and fun environment
Automotive Technician level 3 (Current Employee), Chesapeake, VADecember 9, 2014
Pros: great learning environment, fun place to work
Cons: poor heating, plumbing, leaking roofs on electrical sockets and health hazards, no management, limited advancement
a typical day at work for me at sears is usually a pretty steady to fast paced work environment. We service cars from batteries to brakes and fluid exchanges, alignments and suspension part replacement and a multitude of other things. We have seasonal changes in our workload. The summers tend to be a lot busier than the winter months, when it's busy – more... its non-stop, and when it's slow it's dead. I began working at Sears as a tech level 1. I advanced to a tech level 3 within a 3 year time frame. Throughout which I've learned a great deal. The team that i work with is a very colorful,supportive, fun, unique, and diverse bunch.My mentors were always knowledgeable and welcoming. We all are like a family and manage to keep each other going. Being around them on a daily basis is actually the most enjoyable part of the job. The most difficult part of the job would probably be trying to keep things running the proper way without management. We have been working for the past few years with only having a manager for up to a few months at a time before they resigned. – less

It has a lot of potential
Electronic Salesman & Holiday Advisor (Former Employee), NY,NYDecember 9, 2014
Sears is a fun to work atmosphere. If the company can keep the management talent pool in check it would do a lot better. The co-workers are very relaxed and fun to be with. However, due to management mishaps, talent is not properly secured within the company.

High School like work place with daily drama
stac tech (Former Employee), Round Rock, TXDecember 9, 2014
Pros: good pay, nice place to eat lunch and not that far from where i lived
Cons: to much drama brought into the work place and high school atmosphere
The Sears call center Paid well and had fair job security, but it had the atmosphere of a high school. Most of the time you concentrate on work, but a lot of the time you would be dealing with a high school kind of environment. This was some of the time with but most of the time with other departments. Then they would drag their home problems into work – more... and not just to talk about. Other then the high school type environment it was a nice place to work and most of the people would be friendly if their not involved in some sort of drama. My departments management however kept most of this out of our work area, Most of the people were good at their jobs and the management would work with you if you had a real problem. I learned primarily how to work on appliance's and how to deal with rude customers. The most enjoyable parts of the job were lunch and the end of the day. The hardest part of the job was dealing with really rude customers and the day to day drama that was brought to work. – less
