Depending on which sears you work in the clientele is very different, meaning you will encounter all kinds of customers. Management and the job itself is alright, not bad not great. The customers are always the worst part.

a great company to work for. Are very respectful and caring towards their employees. Loved working there no matter what department i was in. I loved being able to work more or less on my own at my own pace even though there were time lines to meet
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.
greater, cashier (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 12 January 2017
I like my job, to interupt with customers and just receive experience in sales sphere. All managers are respectful and treat every associate appropriate. Every coworker is friendly and come to work is a good work experience. But sometimes you even not able take your breaks, not only me but every associate which is working there. Lack of hours, our managers starts to cut our hours.
Ability to save because of associate discount, friendly coworkers and managers
CASHIER (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 8 January 2017
The people were really supportive and encouraging which made me work more harder and with enthusiasm. Basically, Sears taught me a lot about customer services and improved my skills of handling them and providing them with the most satisfied service ever. The best part is that you get to meet so many people and learn so much from them. By far, Sears has helped me grow as a person by improving my communication and interpersonal skills.
Sales Associate and Cashier (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 5 January 2017
A typical day at work was over 15 costumers a day that already knew what they came for and if not sure on which brand that they would want to buy I had to compare both brands. I learned that work is not always the easiest. The management was fairly good and my co-workers were always friendly. The hardest part about the job was learning how to use the cashier but I got the hang of it really fast. The part I enjoyed most about the job was speaking to different costumers each day having a friendly conversation with them.
