District Sales Manager Ontario East-based (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONMarch 3, 2016
After 14 years of loyal service, was laid off in one of many such actions by Sears. There have been many great people I worked with at this company, and for that, I am grateful. However, the company itself has betrayed many, many people.

Alright for people who enjoy comission work
Customer Service (Former Employee), Dartmouth, NSMarch 2, 2016
Pros: long breaks, good location, quiet setting
Cons: unfriendly people, stressful
To work successfully at Sears you need to sell a certain amount of their credit cards and most people shopping their already have one so its usually a miss. If you aren't a pushy sales person this job isn't for you. I liked the staff for the most part and management was okay. I was hired in a group with 3 other people and I believe we all were let go for not selling enough cards.

Un travail plaisant.
Manutentionnaire (Former Employee), Laval, QCFebruary 25, 2016
Pros: Belle ambiance sans contraintes.
Cons: Le poids de la marchandise qui pouvait s'avérer plus ou moins lourd.
Le personnel est très chaleureux, le travail est partagé avec précision, c'est-à-dire que la quantité de travail à accomplir durant un quart de travail n'est jamais excédante à la capacité moyenne des employés.

Une organisation intacte, dès le début du quart, le travail est enclenché et ce jusqu'à la dernière minute, sans excès.

Liked the job, people good to work with
Loss Prevention Officer (Former Employee), Belleville, ONFebruary 24, 2016
The job was good, only draw back was it was not full time.
I enjoyed the challenges that came from doing security in a large warehouse setting. Everything from CCTV operation to First Aid response and investigation.
I would work here again

Fun position, great co-workers, horrible boss !
Dispatcher (Former Employee), Victoria, BCFebruary 20, 2016
Pros: Great Co-workers
Cons: Manager from heck!
I would dispatch 10 trucks throughout Vancouver Island to specific homes at specific times... routing each guy with their route, parts, timing and syncing them so that their days were fluid.

My boss was new and made and broke promises daily. Was very rude to some, and showed huge favortism to others.

I loved the job, but ended up hated going to work into what felt like elementary school games.

Worst job I have ever had
Sales (Former Employee), Kitchener, ONFebruary 19, 2016
from day one you can tell it's a sinking ship. Badly behaved co workers and management. Toxic environment. One sales person called another's wife ugly, whose response was to pull a knife and threaten to kill him. They both kept heir jobs. I was almost on a fist fight over $0.30 Commission I accidentally stole. It was the second incidence of violence that my co worker had been invoked in, they still kept their job. They need to be gone from the Canadian busness landscape, terrible company.

fun work place, people were very nice
Product Specialist (Former Employee), Truro, NSFebruary 12, 2016
Pros: the people i worked with were so easy to get along with and friendly
Cons: long christmas hours
My typical day of work would be ordering to make sure the store had all of the updated models and any that were going to be on sale for display. also had to make sure the work environment was clean and safe. made signs and had to order and ring in sales. I learned how to multitask, and learned all information about our craftsman products. My co-workers were very pleasant to work with and we all got along great. The hardest part of the job was stock, because everything was so large and heavy to move. The most enjoyable part of the job was dealing with the customers.

men's dress shop and men's wear (Former Employee), Bathurst, NBFebruary 10, 2016
Pros: great enviroment
Cons: terrible management
I enjoyed the job and had great satisfaction in my position . 3 other people were hired for this position in the last year. I was told I was doing a good job . Then the day after a big sale ,just after my first break was taken into an office and told I was no longer needed . I was escorted to my locker and to the door, I asked 3 times why . It took the manager of the store 3 weeks to call me and tell why I was let go. Reason was I was not aggressive enough with customers . Within two weeks my lead was fired and now they looking for new manager For the store . Management was terrible . The staff was great and wonderful to work with.

Fun place to work
Merchandising Presentation Team (Current Employee), Prince George, BCFebruary 9, 2016
Pros: great management team, christmas party, staff bbq's
Cons: not enough hours
A typical work day consists of putting out stock, cleaning assigned department, merchandising of clothes, marking down products to clearance, re-merchandising of clearance, and weekly sale set-up and take down. I have learned a lot about the ins and outs of retail merchandising in the two and a half years at Sears and really enjoy working in a team environment. The most enjoyable part of my job is interacting with customers and my co-workers.

Pros: Very friendly group of employees .
