Regional ORC and Corporate Investigator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB13 June 2017
Long hours, low pay for the jobs your expected to do. Some supervisors are incompetent. Hardest part of the job is a general lack of direction due to the corporate culture.

Fairly busy consistant work enviroment, decent management and staff.
Customer Recovery, Service Resolution Manager (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC8 June 2017
It was one of the better retail service employers, staff were well trained and bonus structure provided incentive to do your best. However working for large companies can limit ones feedback as well as policy flexibility.
Somewhat high pressure work culture and fairly stressful mentally and emotionally but staff were generally fun with a P.M.A.
Pros
Short commute
Cons
Fairly rigid management structure.

somewhat fun but can get tiring.
merchandise flow member (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK7 June 2017
Sears is a great store to shop. However the overall management leaves a lot to be desired especially concerning how the workers are treated. I had a great time because my boss was fun, however the same could not be said for everyone.
Pros
discounts.
Cons
terrible management.

Terrible management and organization. Very frustrating working here. I would not suggest it. Need a serious restructuring if they want to stay open and make employees happy.

Manager (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON7 June 2017
Work hard, and do the job that you are hired to do, and you wont have any problems, this however can be said about many companies. Communicate with your leadership your thoughts in a constructive manner and it , on occasion,will lead to changes in the work place, or a further explanation from leadership about your thoughts and how they apply to whatever the manner at hand is.

Very uncomfortable environment
Call centre assistant (Former Employee) –  Belleville, Ont.7 June 2017
Workplace security was not an option, as everyones jobs became void, once Sears outsourced to the Philippines unfortunatly. The job itself was satisfactory. Stressful at times but manageable, and the co workers all got along and had good morale.

By far the best employer in the retail industry. They were leaders in appliances market. Best compensation in similar trade. Too bad the company is facing difficulties. Were very liberal to employees. One of the best place to work.

Associate Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 June 2017
Just...no!

If exploitation, rampant scape-goating and behaving like a bully are what you are into, this place is right up your alley.

If you have a modicum of decency, turn the other way and look elsewhere. The company performance should be a clear indication of the sinking ship, bloated with rats.
Pros
none
Cons
too many to list
