Pros: discounts in all departments
Cons: unreliable scheduling
Working for Sears Canada is rewarding and enjoyable for anyone that thrives in a customer service setting. Days are filled with routine work (opening cash, stocking and cleaning displays, assisting customers with purchases and products), but the environment provides variety through the day. I learned a lot about how larger companies work, as well as many things about the products I was selling. Sears provides plenty of opportunity to learn (as well as incentives for doing so!). Management is steady, amicable and understanding, though sometimes hard to get in touch with. Supervisors move around the departments frequently, but all are friendly and easy to work with. I enjoyed the busy Christmas season the best, when line ups at the cash desks never end, as well as seeing regular customers from time to time. The hardest part of the job was posting sale signage; it is a long, and sometimes complicated process that needs to be done quickly.
