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.

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.

The experience you will have is of a retail store on its way out. Depending on what department you work in, you may get a lot of pressure to sell credit cards and meet quotas. Other than that, you will find that management and guidance is not readily available due to the lack of staff. Management tends to be untrained or poorly trained and you might not find them as leadership ready as other retail environments. Hours are given to employees from a central pool, and when hours are limited you might find there is a negative relationship between team members and an unhealthy sense of stress or dissatisfaction.
