    Why?????

    Their salesman oversell....and you get holding the bag after accepting the "prices" they allow you to charge.

    I remember a sears job a couple of years ago....I was brought in to fix it because the homeowner threw the Sears contractor out....

    Give a man a capacitor, doesn't know what to do. Teach a man to install it, now he knows everything.

    Sears has a manager in each large area who is in charge of installs.

    even though a few Sears locations have their own techs to do installs they still keep a list of contractors for larger jobs.

    in my area, Sears charges a customer about 12k for a new system and i heard they only pay the contractor about $500.

    a Sears install manager once told me that the biggest mistake contractors make is forgetting to list supplies, for Sears to pay for, which Sears will not re-emberse the contractor for
