Unprofessional environment
Assistant General Manager (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON9 August 2017
Absolutely no work life balance in the store in worked for. Favoritism in upper management. Immature behaviour in upper management. Store manager had no clue what they were doing. Often did not get day off and was asked to cancel vacations. Worked 12-16 hr days with no compensation as you are salaried management the law doesn't require so. Often worked past midnight and was required to go in the next morning 7 am. Good salary until you calculate how many hours you work. You end up below minimum wage!
Pros
Some nice staff

Work with great people
DISTRIBUTION CENTRE ASSOCIATE (Current Employee) –  Vaughan, ON8 August 2017
Best part of working at sears has been the friendships developed with coworkers. Its tight knit, most employees have been there in excess of 20 years. Not much opportunity for advancement unfortunately and compensation is near the bottom for the industry.

Company had no vision and poor communication.
Employees unclear goals as they would change on daily basis.

An alright place to work if they don't go bankrupt
Category/ Buying Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 August 2017
A good place to work if you live downtown and if they don't go bankrupt in the near future.
They need a new CEO and vision in order to reinvent the company and take it to a new level

Work Experience Student (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC1 August 2017
I was about fifteen years old in this job placement, I was given busy work most of the time, there were usually only two or three of us working at a time, I don't think the studio was ever very busy.

Honestly Terrible
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON1 August 2017
The management has no care for employees, are not allowed to talk to other associates and speaking about what you think is correct will get you in trouble. You cannot be friendly with your managers as I quote, "we are your managers, not your friends. You have to listen and do your job". Work is doubled because no manager knows what they are doing and you will end up doing the same thing twice because the first time will definitely be wrong.

Business Development (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON31 July 2017
Good company with passionate and driven people. Unstable at this time however. Highly strategic projects that are changing the company from top to bottom. A lot of opportunity to try new and interesting things.
