I've had an overall good experience here as a woman, but it's still a big corporation so there are strides that need to be made.

    Maybe. There have been a lot of women in pivotal positions, but not lately. Also given the climate of the company I wouldn't necessarily recommend starting here.

This is an ok place for mid level management for women. If you want to rise up above that, you must be able to play extensively intense politics and give up all work life balance.

Senior management in this company is growing for women. Sears is making big changes and women are being allowed to step up.

    Laying proper expectations out for team management would be a great start. Knowing what our goals are would make it easier to plan for time off.

There are a lot of opportunities to learn different job skills and even transfer to a different role outside of what you came in as. There is also a lot expectations that you will be available at anytime of the day. But also be aware there is still very much a “boys club” culture ingrained here.

Don't be shy about advising your leaders about your accomplishments. Everyone is very time-crunched, so leaders are not always aware when their people score a big win. Be your own best advocate and you'll do well.

    The company complies with local laws, so your flexibility may depend on where you live. Best case is to have a manager who is willing to empower team members to set their own hours. I've seen this work successfully in a few different departments.

    Be more transparent in communication. Don't hide the truth simply because you have a difficult message.

Flexibility for working mothers depends entirely on your department manager -- some are very understanding, others extremely deaf

Everyone wants to be noticed and rewarded for their hard work but don't let it consume you. Leave work at work even though sometimes they make it hard.

Good compensation. Very high health insurance costs. No 401K match. Negotiate your salary during your onboarding; raises are rare.

    The company is going through major difficulties. If you are looking for great experience for your resume, then consider the opportunity. If you are looking for stability, then consider another opportunity.

Associate

Automotive

January 1970

Again, if you're not willing to fight (mostly bigoted customer, and the occasional technician) this isn't the job for you. You don't have to know alot about cars to start as SHC has a wonderful training program. It takes a certain skill in sales as well. There isn't a lot of communication between corporate and the store, so at times, it can be frustrating trying to explain things to customers that you don't fully understand yourself. I do really enjoy this job, but the company itself could be better.

    Maybe. Working in the Automotive industry is as difficult as it is rewarding. It takes a strong woman that is willing to fight to be respected and believed. Sears does a good job of softening the hardships by having a decent hr support system. It takes a certain courage to be in this job.

Women and Men are treated rather equally, however the head of department is extremely demanding
