Sales Associate, Cashier (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – May 30, 2016
Sears is a great company to work for. From the management team to the co-workers, everyone is extremely helpful and hardworking. Not only did I gain practical experience from Sears, but I also received outstanding costumer service and communication skills. It was delightful working for such a welcoming company.
It was a fun place to work because of the great Staff
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – January 21, 2016
Very busy at the cash desk, which I loved. Had to learn how to use very old cash registers. Management was not very supportive. My co-workers where awesome, everyone got along It was very hard to sell there credit cards. The most enjoyable part was the customers, they were a lot of fun and interesing.
Management had head office problems that trickled down to staff.

It's a fun and productive workplace. They really care about you as an employee. The salaries is good including the benefits. The work isn't as hard it goes according to your capability. If there is a problem they are willing to try and accommodate you accordingly.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Port Coquitlam, BC – December 4, 2014
Pacific Cross Dock - Hire people as permanent part time but actually are only hiring for seasonal. When they are busy you are expected to be available Mon-Fri full time, but when they aren't you may go from full time hours to 4 hours a week. There is no guarantee past 4 hours per week.
Coworkers are all friendly however few are satisfied with the job and how they are treated. The morale is the lowest of any place I've ever worked. Everyone wants to just do their time and get out. The management staff don't even know peoples names and seldom acknowledge you are there.
They do pay you for two 15 minute breaks and you take another 1/2 hour for a break. They are reasonable if you have to ask for a day off. You do get a generous discount at the stores.
Safety is taken seriously, discount at Sears stores
low pay, raises based on hours worked not performance
The job is seasonal and hours were cut or given when they needed you
Customer Service / Cashier (Former Employee) – Cornwall, ON – March 16, 2016
My job was customer service as a cashier. I had to learn how to deal with complaints and if they couldn't' be resolved ask for a manager. Most people were helpful and my direct manager was wonderful to work for. I left due to hours being cut and I loved helping the customers and interacting with them.
Loved the customer service end of the job and my co workers
Floor Associate (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – June 6, 2016
The employees were pretty great. It was a really positive work environment. The management was either right on your butt or they were way too laid back. The job itself was very easy, and you learned to multi-task.
Sales Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – June 23, 2016
No much customers, Lack of management, Lack of hours, no raises, lack of recognition. There was barely any training when you first start. But meet some associate that are very nice. Wouldn't pick sears as a career option.
CAWP (Current Employee) – Halifax, NS – June 28, 2016
While a good place to work for, there is not a whole lot of available hours. There is a lot of heavy lifting in the CAWP department, though co-workers tend to be excellent. Most management will work with you for your needs.
Customer service representative (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – May 23, 2016
A typical day at work would consist of coming in and going to my assigned cash register area/booth and working there. Most days I would close alone, therefore was I counted on for proper cash deposits and transactions at the end of the day.
Material Handler (Current Employee) – Belleville, ON – July 22, 2016

MPT Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – May 7, 2016
whenever I was given a task to do they would always give me lots of freedom to do it how I wanted, no micro-management. most of the mangers and higher ups were friendly but sometimes they would out-source there jobs to me because I am young and fit.
