    Good for part time, but certainly not a career.

    Current Employee - Sales Associate  in  Cleveland, TN (US)
    Current Employee - Sales Associate in Cleveland, TN (US)

    Pros

    Respected Company, especially by older people.
    In smaller communities, you can really establish great relationships with customers
    Very relaxed environment

    Cons

    Incompetent senior management. ie, stock has dropped almost 70% since January 2011.
    Really pushes Shop Your Way Rewards and PA's.
    Alienates their old market in order to corner a new one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You had a massive customer base that has been all but abandoned by new policies. Try and remember the older folks who have been loyal customers for their whole lives.

  2.  

    Great for seasonal or part-time work or as a first job for a student.

    Former Employee - MCA  in  Grand Rapids, MI (US)
    Former Employee - MCA in Grand Rapids, MI (US)

    Pros

    Manager keeps us in the loop on important metrics.

    Managers usually available and present on the floor.

    Managers generally don't put themselves on a pedestal - they act humble.

    Cons

    So many acronyms! I was an MCA but didn't even know what MCA stood for until about a month after I took the job. (It means Merchandise and Customer Assist, by the way). I still don't know what many of the terms mean.

    While most co-workers were friendly, a few seemed impatient.

    Almost all of the merchandise pick-up team is male. Women can carry heavy objects too (more than some of us guys could, myself included)!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Connect what we're doing to the overall success of the company - how are WE helping Sears succeed? Also, get employees more involved in community service projects.
