Read 63 answers

  • Stressful. Not enough hours, lots of things to do, nobody's "authorized" or "qualified" to help you. If you're on 100% commission in appliances, you're only making 2-3% on a sale. If you're in the backroom, you're making minimum wage for about 9-13 hours a week.

  • The company is constantly changing and closing stores

  • Stressful environment.

  • Very Stressful. Confusion regarding work schedules. Difficulty logging into their time card system. Low pay.

  • Sell, sell, sell! It's the equivalent of working at a used car dealership.Tech managers are relentless in pushing sales. Commission system constantly changes. Poor benefits, discounts are basically the same as what a customer recieves. Very low wages compared to competitors.The computers (SST) as well as the main servers are crashing all the time its basically a running joke with employees.The best case scenario for Sears is being bought out and a complete restructuring of the entire company. Only then woukd it be a viable and relavant company.The good 'ol days of Sears being a great company as well as a desirable employer are long gone.

  • The work enviroment is easy and fun depending on your location of the store. Other than that I do not reccommend working here it is always understaffed for example its like pulling teeth to try and get someone to cover your lunch break. All management including leads doesn't care about you they are not considerate of anything like school or a death in the family as I've seen and experienced at my time working at Sears. They also have fun changing your schedule whenever they want and feel like and the best part is that sometimes they don't even tell you.

  • The workers at my store generally got along fairly well. However, Sears is a company in decline and making serious cutbacks. They are letting go of experienced associates and replacing them with younger (i.e., cheaper) persons, or nobody at all. As a result, employee morale and customer service are suffering. The long-term prospects of Sears are in grave doubt and employees know it.

  • Sears is on it’s way out

  • My experience was that the job was very stressful when busy because of the lack of training. There was a great deal of pushing to get credit card apps and if you got one you were rewarded with a liter of Coke or 7-Up. Somehow doesn't motivate me. Hated working there.
