Pros: long lunches, friendly staff, flexible hours
Cons: poor pay, no advancement, no recognition, blame shifting
The hours are flexible at Sears, whether you are full time or part time. If you wish to work only mornings, only evenings, or only daytimes, that is possible. Help is usually around if you need it, and the other associates are very friendly. Customers are a big hassle as many of Sears' policies are very oddly worded and are hard to explain. Management – more... changes hands quite often but for the most part is quite intelligent, friendly and helpful. Do not expect any raises or recognition for your work- just be another cog in the wheel.
Simply put, Sears pays the bills and helps pass the day. I have learned alot about people and about the way the world revolves but it is not somewhere I would like to spend the rest of my life. However, that is relative I suppose. – less
