They job can be physically taxing at times.

Working with colleagues.

Allowed Me To Gain Experience
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Multiple Locations7 February 2017
Working for any retail store can be a task. We all know the deal with Sears closing stores out. But despite the economical difficulties this company faces, they still try to do their best. I was fortunate enough to work with great staff both in Calgary & Halifax. As far as I'm concerned, Sears is a great company nation-wide.
Pros
Great Staff, Good Lifestyle Balance

Lots wrong with this company

Did not like working there at all, lots of red tape and a mountain of paperwork for everything. No one wants to take responsibility for there actions. No surprise that they are going under.

Dull and Inefficient
Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Belleville, ON31 January 2017
This workplace needs to be improved for many reasons from efficiency to inaccuracy. I could turn the shipping department into a much better place to work and improve the process, no one there has any motivation to change the old ways although they have recently changed a great deal of their system.
Pros
Physical work
Cons
Everything else
