42 years at Sears and 41 of those years were great years. The senior management was for the most part fair and tried to be accommodating to the employees. we had good benefits, I started with Sears doing deliveries, moved to the store in commission sales, was advanced to assistant sales manager, then to sales manager, then after I retired I was rehired or PT sales, and advanced to Sales Team Leader. I left Sears again. and was hired back PT sales again this time working a schedule that suited my semi retirement schedule.
Treated me very well, schedule was usually quite flexible.
Retail doesn't pay very well.
