Q: What is it like working at Sears Holdings Corporation?

Sales Associate in West Palm Beach:
Pros: Sometimes the customer is the only joy I get from work.
Cons: The entire corporation is cheap 4.25 hr 1% commission on appliances which majority are under $1000. Not to mention they sell used scratch and dented appliances for just a few dollars less than buying brand new. They stress you to sale Protection Agreements, pitch leases and credit cards with no incentives except a free lunch. So for every $100 you close they give $1. Not much to live in when your competitors selling brand new appliances for $20-$4 more or $50 or more less than it cost at an outlet full of scratched and dented as well as used refurbished appliances.
