Paid time off is available at Sears, but the number of hours vary based on how long the employee has been employed and his/her employment classification. Additionally, salaried employees can purchase additional vacation days each year.
This information about the Vacation & Paid Time Off benefit at Sears is the result of research by Glassdoor editorial staff, and was not provided directly by a representative of Sears. The description here may not reflect the current Sears Vacation & Paid Time Off benefit.
Paid vacations are offered for part timers who have been around for a few months.
only for full-time and have to work one year before you even start collecting
The vacation time is the standard 2 weeks. But what I did like is that you could buy back an additional 2 weeks if you wanted to, which I took advantage of several times. I also was refunded outstanding vacation days when I left.
They give full time 40 hr. a week employees just the benefit equivalence of a 30 hr. a week employee so you only get paid 7 hrs. a day off versus 8 hrs.
That’s a great part of working for Sears
Typical job vacation time. Something like 2 hrs per check towards vacation. Certain major holidays are paid rather you work or off.
Vacation time is decent,insurance okay
Never used it, still need to get reeimbursed for not using any of my 35ish hours that I have accumulated over 2 years of being there and surpassing the turnaround point.
You have to get them approved two weeks in advanced. You are not allowed to go on vacation during the holidays.
Its accrued throughout the year and if you exceed what you have at any given time you will get written up.
