It was a great experience, I learned many new skills though helping customers, and being positive. The hardest part was dealing with non cooperative customers, but that taught me patience and good thinking skills.

Low salary

A great environment to work, however, the salary was not competitive. Most employees at the time were eager to find other employment due to low pay. However, it was a nice environment.

Perfect First Job
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB15 February 2018
Sears was my first job. Working at Sears taught me how to multi task, responsibility as well as how important a workspace culture is. One thing I loved about working my first retail job was everyday was something different. You run into many different people, and working at this job really helped me to break out of my shell.

Great company until it closed
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  London, ON15 February 2018
During this period I was undergoing extreme stress and health concerns. Because of this I missed a few shifts and was subsequently fired two weeks before Christmas. It's a cold-hearted thing to fire someone two weeks before Christmas when you already know the entire store and staff will be let go in 2 months time.
