Good Temporary Job

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Altamonte Springs, FL (US)

I worked at Sears part-time for less than a year

ProsI worked as a shoe salesman and I liked the commission structure. It was not as good as other department stores but it was still an incentive to work harder.

ConsThere is no incentive to advance to a managerial position because of the constant turnover. I worked at Sears for 8 months and had 4 different managers. I would never want to be a manager because the work load is ridiculous for the amount of pay. The security of the job is also terrible.

Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out a better way to retain good management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

"I worked at K-Mart, and it was a horrible experience!"

Team Member Associate (Current Employee)
Hollywood, FL (US)

I have been working at Sears part-time for less than a year


Pros: Probably the good thing about the job is that you gain retail experience and you can transition your experiences into another better job in retail.… Cons: Now I cannot speak for all K-Mart stores except the one located in Oakwood Plaza (Hollywood, FL). - Training is very poor. When I started there,… Advice to Senior Management: I only speak of K-Mart in Oakwood Plaza in Hollywood, FL. - The next time you hire people, seek out workers that provides great dedication in… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
