Electronics Sales associate (Former Employee) – San Bruno, CA – 14 April 2012
Great place to start off in the workforce. Really depends on what department you end up working in. Pay can vary, especially if working in commissioned sales. But overall good workplace environment, everyone is teeter tater friendly and with experience you can be in a position to move up within the company.
Culture wise was ok, but it was not an organized company in many ways
QA Analyst - Contract (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 3 March 2017
Culture wise was ok, but it was not an organized company in many ways, the salary was below market rate.
This company was not organized and hardly had any documentation to even learn their system, so I got the information from the internet to learn their system.... Since I already worked for such a company before, I tried to help them volunteerly to organize our department I myself so created a User Manual and other training and resource documents for the company efficiency and productivity. The job I did was not challenging, it was a lots of reputation but over all was ok.
Sales Associate/Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 12 January 2017
I applied here because it was close to home. I liked the hours I initally requested but was asked to work for Merchandising as it was required by all employees. Some days I was scheduled to work from 4pm-9pm then had to be back at the store for merch at 6AM. Be prepared to be asked to come in on your day off or stay later.
There was lots of resentment the time I worked there but did meet some pretty nice people.
Love my job, but the hours and the environment is...
Merchandise Presentation Associate (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 26 November 2016
For the first two weeks, i was getting lots of hours and I loved that. But after that, i only get 5 hours a week. I talked to my manager 3 different times but the only thing she says is that's all she can give. But she and one of our team member who is her personal close friend would always be working together, and anything her friend says about the schedule, the manager approves which is unfair. And I see that they're still hiring when all they can give us, 2 new associates in her team, is either 4 or 5 hours. Although, I love my job, the hours go by really fast.
good salary, time goes by fast
max of 5 hours a week, personal relationships with team members affect the workplace
Minion (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 24 October 2016
Alot of changes happening within sears canada right now. They are spending and have spent a fortune on "refreshes" none of which are getting customers to come into the stores. First of all. ..let's deal with the customer service 1-800 joke. As a curent employee, it is a daily battle on our end to fix what these so called customer service representatives do to our customers! Secondly, to get a raise with sears. ....HAHAHA. ...NOT A CHANCE!
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Surrey, BC – 15 March 2017
sears is a good place to work for but if we take a look at the salary then it is minimum, even with the experience we don't get a raise. And sometimes what i think that there is nothing which we can learn new or exciting.

Great employees to work with .Management lacks team work and commodore .Good benefits and work /life balance is recognized and practised . The selling culture is one of honesty and product knowledge is passed on to customers.
Full time Commission Salesperson (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 8 February 2017
Sears was a great company to work for unfortunately over the past 10 years things have taken a turn for the worst cost cutting dropping employees benefits taking away sick time and dropping employees income
Great coworkers and understanding departmental managers
Jewellery Consultant (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 7 September 2016
I worked with great coworkers and management was very understanding. We had strict goals that involved signing customers up for the Sears Credit Card and Sears Mastercard. Sales goals were celebrated and praised across the store.
Our manager was very understanding and sympathetic.
Retail/Catalogue Merchandise Flow Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 31 January 2017
Having worked for a few teams within the same department, my coworkers have made the transition easy and welcoming. If there were any questions or concerns, we were able to bring it up and have it addressed. Not everyone in upper management was as receptive to our concerns. It came right down to the bottom line and constantly changing our job description based on the needs of the business. That's not necessarily a negative but it does make it more difficult to complete projects. Even though there was different associate levels within a team, we along well together
