Could be better
Marketing (Current Employee), Toronto, ONOctober 29, 2014
- good work life balance
- no expectations at this point in time
- no opportunity for advancement or learning
- just expected to do more work as people keep leaving
- no idea where the company is going and senior management keeps changing
- good opportunity to take on new opportunities as long as you initiate the desire to do so. Don't expect much in – more... return though.
- Learn new skills and get out
- Great location! – less

manager and sales associate (Former Employee), Victoria B.C.October 27, 2014
Pros: great co-workers and staff
Cons: to much managment not leading properly
A typical day at work was helping staff reach sales goals, delegating tasks and helping the team work together to fulfill any requirements needed. Customer relations and problem solving. Listening to customers and making sure they are left feeling good about the company and there experience. I learned a lot about many products. Management sometimes – more... struggled with being present when needed but it just made me learn how to resolve more issues on my own. The hardest part of the job was helping people who just wanted to complain and not come to a resolution. The most enjoyable part of my job was working for my staff to make a smooth running happy work environment. – less

Started off okay...
Sales Floor Associate (Former Employee), Belleville, ONOctober 20, 2014
Management was way off, schedule was never done in advance, couldn't plan anything for family/friends and after Christmas, only got 4 hours per week or work! Definitely was not worth the time, gas or money...

Productive and fun
Sales Associate (Part-Time) (Current Employee), Toronto, ONOctober 20, 2014
A typical day at work for 5 or 6 hours, sign in, open the safe and put out all of the gold and diamonds, clean the glass cabinets, remove anything on top of the table, then I am ready to serve my customers, I am sometimes relieved by another co-workers and she will close out the teal and put the jewellry back into the safe then make sure the area is – more... clean and ready for the following day.

I have learned structure in my business and in life general, I have a good rapport with management and I find them to be very fair. I get along very well with my co-workers and we all works as a team even thou I take care of the jewellry department, I also help in cosmetics and women clothing when needed.

The hardest part is realizing and understand that not everyone works at the same paste as you do, and now I get that.

The most enjoyable part of the job is welcoming my customers into my home and reason saying that is we treat our customers as a guest and want them to feel comfortable, and to know that we are here to serve them, so they have our full attention to what brought them into the store and it's my job to assist them of getting what they came here for and to make sure that they're happy when they leave.

So to know that you have done your part as a customer service agent when you see those same faces returning, that's a good feeling. – less

Enjoyable Workplace
Cashier (Former Employee), Kelowna, BCOctober 13, 2014
Pros: discounts in all departments
Cons: unreliable scheduling
Working for Sears Canada is rewarding and enjoyable for anyone that thrives in a customer service setting. Days are filled with routine work (opening cash, stocking and cleaning displays, assisting customers with purchases and products), but the environment provides variety through the day. I learned a lot about how larger companies work, as well as – more... many things about the products I was selling. Sears provides plenty of opportunity to learn (as well as incentives for doing so!). Management is steady, amicable and understanding, though sometimes hard to get in touch with. Supervisors move around the departments frequently, but all are friendly and easy to work with. I enjoyed the busy Christmas season the best, when line ups at the cash desks never end, as well as seeing regular customers from time to time. The hardest part of the job was posting sale signage; it is a long, and sometimes complicated process that needs to be done quickly. – less

General Manager (Former Employee), winnipeg, manitobaOctober 6, 2014
Pros: trying to help rebuild an icon
Cons: inner turmoil
started the day pulling numbers and getting ready for meeting with sales associates, then throughout the day coach my management team to better motivate their staff to achieve targets.

I learned that making people accountable for their jobs is an ongoing task the moment you let up focus shifts.

i liked coming in and interacting with the associates – more... as well as customers – less

At every job you learn something, I enjoy working a long side of my people's , I feel a Manager must be involved on the floor in order for your people to work the way you want them to succeed like you do.There is always room for improvement from learning and teaching.
