    I worked at Sears full-time (More than a year)


    Very diverse workplace that is exciting in a lot of ways with a large number of very seasoned professionals. Fast paced and always moving thus, seldom is there time to be bored. Very robust supply chain that presents a wide range of opportunities in the vast world of logistics. When I was laid-off, Sears did a very professional and tactful job in how they administered the process. It is worth complimenting them on how they did it and the HR department overall was excellent in how they conducted HR tasks, provided information, and offered support. Not just during the layoff process but, for the entire time I was at Sears. Losing hundreds of millions will force any organization to cut costs which always include cutting jobs.


    Despite what I viewed as a tremendous upside, Sears has lost its way for what is use to stand for. Too high class to be a budget store and too high end to meet customers where they are at and apparently no stomach to beat their competitors at their own game. The head doesn't appear to know what the feet are doing and the ridiculous layers of management to process simple solutions is mind boggling. Not knowing your going to be laid-off is rough and Sears had to have a working knowledge that they were going to lay me and the other 400 off. We should have received a warning. I could have had resume's or other job opportunities waiting. Poor job of training certain aspects such as their specifically designed route management tool. Particularly since much of my work was dealing with that software. Not receiving enough training with that software package was somewhat detrimental to my professional development. There simply were not enough subject matter experts available to conduct the necessary training you needed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it simple. Sears is 100% corporate and it seems everyone once some report or an analysis on why a load was late regardless of what else you have on your plate. A senior manager explained it to me by saying it takes at least a year just to get your feet wet. That was an understatement. I felt, that some senior management lost site of the fact that I was new and learning some of the things I needed to learn takes time since the systems are specific to the organization. I felt as if I had to be as efficient as other managers that had 15 years plus of experience without having to work directly with the routing software that very few knew about in the first place. The management are good people. I did not come across a "bad manager" but, it is tough because of how Sears structure is set-up. At the end of the day, the organization is losing money and will continue to do so as long as they continue to tailor to the few instead of the base which is everyday America. Everyone in suburban America doesn't want their daughters wearing Mikki Manaj apparel. They pay millions for that, and fail to recognize what their stores should really be focused on. I.e. some stores in the suburbs need to have 10% apparel and 90% lawn and garden or vice versa for some of Sears urban stores.
