Great place to work with even greater people. Everyday was like going to a second family. Everyone helped each other with anything and ensured everyone had sufficient time for breaks even during the rush of christmas.

I really liked the people I worked with. We were like a family and worked well together. We learned how to be team players and also to work alone. The management team were wonderful and supported us at all times. The staff really did value our customers. The hard part of the job was having to leave.
Sears was a nice place to work,wonderful customers

Enjoyed my time with Sears Canada. Learnt a lot about the retail business. Customer service and merchandising was the two areas I enjoyed the most. I'm going to miss the relationship we had with our long time customers and the staff I work with in our department.

District Visual Manager (Former Employee) – Greater Toronto Area, ON – 4 March 2018
Change is good. The executives at Sears Canada had the vision and the willingness to push for a complete reinvention of the brand. Starting with the product and then to the store design/planning.
They were aggressive in their approach with this reinvention looking to complete 10 store renovations in 12 months and they were on track. The only reason was because Sears Canada had great employees with great pride in the brand.
