The real competition was sales, a change of jobs within the location can prove beneficial
SALES ASSOCIATE, LOSS PREVENTION, MERCHANDISING (Former Employee) – Escondido, CA – November 1, 2018
The managers of Sears were one of the most devoted I've ever encountered. Even if the company was going bankrupt, they still made strives to improve the work place by merging a few jobs that seemed natural. For the longest time, electronics and the appliance sales associates were two different jobs, but after three months of my stay in Sears, they had finally melded the two. As soon as I had moved to the shoe section, everything was a lot less competitive in terms of sales. I didn't have to meet a quote of protection plans or anything, but I did have to man a cash register and organize shoes that were misplaced. They provided a security jacket to me as a deterrent to stop any thefts which were quite common. Loss prevention even reached out to me after I've caught a few thefts. We were short staffed, but I was able to manage, sometimes I get to move appliances, and other times, I boast my knowledge of how expertly crafted a work boot was.
All in all, I enjoyed my time at Sears. They didn't really have anything under the table business practices, far from it really. The only stressful times I've had would be when Sears actually gets busy.
Magnificent managerial skills, excellent working environment.
Only ever stressful if and when it gets busy.
