4 Years - Manager - Not 1 Raise (Though took the dpt. 50% profit increase)
Parts Specialist (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 5 October 2018
The Parts Dpt. within Sears was considered separate from Sears Management though we were situated within the same store.
The People I worked with were absolutely AMAZING.
BUT with the Parts Dpt. we were always on our own and that was also for store parties, Christmas gifts/bonuses, Pizza Parties, etc. Our little group would always have to celebrate ourselves out of our own pocket. We managed and being on our own meant that Management within the store couldn't tell us what to do or dismiss us.
We were the Life of the Store - everyone wanted to work at our dpt. Our laughter could always be heard and it was a joy to work there daily.
The sad part about it, as a Manager, myself and the help of my team took the Dpt. to an increase of 50% in profits within the first year I was Manager and it kept rising in Sales.
I was exhausted - working 10-12 hr shifts, with 8 hours before I would take a 5 min break. My life was within the store. I didn't see my summers. lol
Through ALL OF MY DEDICATION and being recognized as the Top Sales Manager Across Canada - Not $1 was ever given in a raise. Not even $0.50cents. SAD Not even for my team cause we worked HARD - and Played Hard as well.
Now, where are they!
Great People to Work For
Didn't Materialize their Appreciation in a Tangible Way
