This is just an FYI for all of you future folks applying to Sears for Cashiering. Your training will not teach you about the POS (Point of Sales). You won't be trained on proper usings of the register. The only training you receive is being sat down in front of a computer for 2-4 days to go over rules and regulations as well as a Transfer Sale. They will throw you on the register with nobody to help you before your training is complete. And before your training is complete you will be coached if you have not met their quota for credit cards as well as their rewards programs. How do I know this? Because I quit Sears today after getting another Job Offer.
I wasn't even out of my "computer" training before I was getting told my "efforts weren't good enough for the Sears Brand." So I urge you, keep your wits about you. They make the job sound wonderful in the interview, but once on the register. They want you to actually talk people into credit cards and if you don't, it gets counted against you. So just keep in mind you won't shadow anyone, you won't train for the register's system itself and you'll be thrown directly into the day with no coaching on how to properly utilize the system.
Good luck to all future and current Sears employees.
PS. The 40+ hours for training is a facade. The following week, I was down to 10 hours as a floater, so be weary of that as well.
