Sales Associate (Former Employee) – San Mateo, CA – 16 May 2013
At Sears it was all about hard work. Being in a commission based atmosphere it was almost dog eat dog and that at times was tough. For a year and a half I was always at the top of sales in my department and I was able to keep up by learning about all the new items we had in stock.

Buyer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 June 2017
Day to day operation was quite chaotic and also appeared to be retrofitting where we were into where we needed to be from a strategy point of view. I was with the company during a period of extreme change which offered great opportunity but at the cost of my personal life. Ended up going highly unappreciated but I wish them all the best.
Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 23 June 2017
Other then the coworkers (individuals, who are worthy of mentioning), company has major issues which will hardly ever be addressed properly.
A lot of management, from the top, CEO, level, to the regular store ones, sell and pitch stories of companionship and positivity and respect, which they don't follow themselves. There is a lot of problems in organisation and micro management, that are visible every day but are not resolved at all.
Not to mention serious property selling to combat the inadequate business plans and future investments. Basically, sell what you have so that you can lease it afterwards...More of a strategy for a third world country's cr**** business.
Systems Programmer (Former Employee) – 100 Valleybrook Drive – 23 June 2017
Sears has treated their employees very badly for the past 5 years. Sears used to be a great place to work but has gone downhill in the last 10 years. The company has become more focused on making money at the cost of how it treats its employees. Since the company is about to go bankrupt and have locked out thousands of employees without a decent severance package for their hard work I wold say it is not a good place to work, nor has it been for the last 10 years.
co workers are great hard working people.
upper management treat lower management and employees with disrepect.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 22 June 2017
Management was so-so, not very understanding whatsoever. Co-workers either were kind and enjoyable to work with, or completely rude and draining; no in between. Overall, it was a good learning experience as different situations came up daily, and we were taught very well how to handle certain situations should they arise.
Loss Prevention Officer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 June 2017
In the very beginning during the hiring process, it was told that what news corps say about Sears is incorrect and that the company was doing well and there was nothing to worry about. well, after 3 months of employment the words we were told to ignore were actually true and a massive layoff occurred without warning and no severance was given.
Flow Merchandiser/Shipment Receiver (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 22 June 2017
Nice location, well maintained, few managers actually care about their employees. Other than that, the other managers are disrespectful and unappreciative of hard work. They love to give part time hours so don't apply if you want a lot of hours.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 19 June 2017

Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) – Belleville, ON – 17 June 2017
Always learning new things. A normal day at work can be good lots to do different areas. If your trained in different ares you get moved around a lot.There's always something new to lean. management is good my team leader is great person. The people i work with are great easy going good nature and friends. The hardest part of the job is when you start because you never know which area your going to be in for the day. Most enjoyable people i work with are great.
