Fun place to work, not sure of outcome
Clinique Counter Manager (Former Employee), Cambridge, ONApril 23, 2015
I was working at Sears while many changes were taking place, such as cosmetics being pulled out of the department. I was scared for my job security and returned to school.

A depressing and confusing environment with no clear future plan for business and employees
Senior Manager-Quality Programs (Former Employee), Toronto, ONApril 22, 2015
I was in charge of many different things since Sears is in downsizing mode and there were not many staff. I liked two of my projects there since I was completely in charge and I perform the best when I have full authority and own the project. Both projects were great success.

Senior Sales Manager (Current Employee), mississaugaApril 22, 2015
Pros: salary and benefits
Cons: no growth
Systems were all outdated.

Loved working with the public and assisting them.

People were great but there was a huge disconnect with upper management and front line managers.

Upper management thought the were better and knew more than what the front line managers experienced.

No surprise that Sears is closing down all locations.

I felt that this company helped me stretch and grow as a person, and to reach higher.
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee), Charlottetown, PEApril 21, 2015
Pros: we got a discount at Sears.
Cons: no full time administrator, so sometimes the communication was not very good.
In every work area in my life i have been able to look back and see what i have learned and how i have grown as a person and as a professional. I believe we can learn something from everyone.I worked in a very high pase environment, where we worked as a team to accomplish the stores goals. My husband got a new job so i stopped working and helped him.

It is a good company to work for to get industry/ corerate experience but you always have to keep a look out for other opportunities because there is not enough advancement or security

If you like doing makeup, you will hate this job
Beauty Advisor (Former Employee), peterboroughApril 19, 2015
Pros: some of the co workers were nice

Cons: was not treated like a human being by managers. If you try your hardest, it is never good enough. You have to sell credit cards, but unless you get used to working their computers, it's impossible to do until your training is done. you are on commission block for two weeks. the other associates make money off your sales. Be careful when applying that it isn't in conjunction with any gift with purchase events, as they will just have you doing gofer work the whole time with little to no training, and they will fire you when gift is done. it actually has nothing to do with beauty and everything to do with making money off of people. Be prepared to cry three times per week, at least.

No training. No help. No encouragement.

A team-oriented work environment with engaged and creative colleagues
Graphic Designer (Current Employee), Toronto, ONApril 19, 2015
Pros: Great Benefits, including Vacation, Great work out facility
Cons: Limited food items in the cafeteria
Sears Canada is a wonderful place to work. The environment is one in which colleagues are encouraged to be fully engaged, and are offered many opportunities to participate by contributing to the betterment of the company. There are a lot of fun, and team building events within the company. It really does feel like you are part of one big family all striving toward the common core values. Once a week you will have an opportunity to engage your team members and discuss successes, and ideas. I've learned that the environment you work in makes all the difference in the world. The people I work with within the company are caring, understanding, and very talented.

Field Placement Student (Former Employee), Toronto, ONApril 16, 2015
The team was very welcoming to a student coming on board to help out around the store and office.

I worked every Thursday and Friday and performed duties such as backchecks, paystub organization, commission sheet organization and creating and completing excel spreadsheets.

The management was in a tough position when I was there due to the many changes happening at Sears right now.

The best part of my job was that I did something different every day.

Outlet Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Warman, SKApril 14, 2015
This was such a busy busy outlet in our satellite community (Warman) to Saskatoon. Amazing how many people utilized the online shopping / local pickup.

Have to say there were many MANY stressful/ frustrated customers who came to return items, but my training and gradual experience with these customers helped me gain confidence and patience to realize, it is not a personal attack against ME, but just a frustration with a product. So I always apologized for their frustration, and did the best I could to resolve the conflict.

We had pic-nic tables outside and b.b.q activity for Kids cancer during summer time.
Chef d'équipe (Former Employee), Montréal, QCApril 6, 2015
Pros: We hade employes discount off 25 % . Free parking lot.
Cons: Working week-ends
I was working from 8h00 to 4h00 Monday to friday

Harvest data for the conference call. Meeting with the director to see plan of the day. Audit objectives, and planning of the tasks ahead.


Organize and prioritize emergency. Distribute the work. Check and analyze employee performance reports. Make coaching with employees.Read and answer emails.


I have learned: to communicate, share knowledge and teamwork.I have developed my sense of organisation and analysis.

Helping each other, sharing information is a very good way to obtain our goal. Teamwork was necessary to respond effectively to the needs of the client.

Meet with employees for inappropriate conduct codes was the hardest part of the job.

Motivating supporting and helping my team was the most enjoyable part of the job.

I started as a saleperson and I finished as team leader. Multiple reorganizations of the company have develop my ability to cope with change.

My involvement : cycling against cancer in young people has been a beautiful challenge and an unforgettable experience.

Productive and fun workplace.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Toronto, ONApril 2, 2015
Pros: Always a pleasure to go to work.
Cons: Finding a parking spot.
I would start my shift usually in the afternoon to close and acknowledged the customers and co-workers. I learned product knowledge, learned how to use their registers, transactions, procedures on exchanges/returns. I also was taught to do inventory using a scanner. Management were close by and pleasant to assist in matters beyond my control. The hardest part of the job was leaving which was a great place to work and enjoyed working with my co-workers.
