Productive and fast paced work environment
Merchandise Presentation & CSD Associate (Current Employee), Toronto, ONJanuary 31, 2014
Pros: long hours
Cons: this job is seasonal
A typical day at work includes a lot of bending, cleaning, condensing, lifting, moving stuff around, helping customers, and standing at the cashier. I've learned to not let negativity affect my work and professionalism. The management at Sears could use some help because they aren't very organized. My co-workers are alright. Some people need to mind – more... their own business and focus on what they have to get done, instead of focusing on what other people are doing and speaking negatively about others behind their backs. The hardest part about this job is having to constantly clean up after customers, especially when the area was cleaned up not too long ago. The most enjoyable part about this job is helping customers out, being able to give advice to customers about what looks good on them, what matches with what, and to just simply have great friendly conversations with the customers. The breaks are also wonderful too! – less

Sears was a great company to work for but over the years they seemed to struggle with the competition.All employees tried hard to keep the company from closing its doors.It was very difficult for the dedicated employees when in December 2013 they decided to shut down the Home Improvement Division of Sears Canada.

Good people, great to work with. However with recent staff reductions there was an increasing amount of work to do but there has been no increase in pay for several years.

Associate Store Manager (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJanuary 24, 2014
I had the luxury of being apart of the management team, when it was going thru its peek times. Shortly after Eaton's had gone under, Sears had purchased prime Eaton's location and I was involved in building new teams, renovations projects, and Co-Managing and department's. The Overall excitement and challenges of that time period was a lot of work and – more... a lot of fun. – less

The job is satisfying and there are many different divisions so it dosen't get boring.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Cornwall, ONJanuary 16, 2014
My day at Sears is as a sales professional. I have learned a lot about tractors, lawnmowers, snowblowers, BBQ's, patio furniture, hardware, home improvement items such as dehumidifiers, humidifiers, air conditioners, water softeners, air purifiers, and fitness equipment.
I also know how to do stock presentation as I also worked on the Merchandise Placement – more... Team. I spent time in the Electronics section, so I am familiar with selling TV's.
I get along great with management and my co-workers. The hardest part of the job is dealing with customers who are not satisfied. The most enjoyable part of the job is having customers return to tell me how happy they are with the purchase they made from me. – less
