I have been working at Sears full-time (Less than a year)
Sears has kept the family, friendly attitude that they have had for years. When it came to family emergencies supervisors were always understanding. Almost all associates are very aware of how teamwork makes the dream work. Member first is the motto in our store and we pride ourselves in that.
Being a full-time employee I usually only receive about 32 hours a week due to loss of hours in our store. This also makes it very difficult to accomplish tasks when hours are reduced so much in all positions that I have to wear many different hats in our store to make ends meet. Although I am comfortable with all of the responsibility I am not being compensated for these positions.
Advice to Management
Hang in there guys, I know you're doing your best with what the company throws at you.
I applied online. I interviewed at Sears (Merrillville, IN) in September 2017.
This was the worest interview I have ever had. It was not even an interview. The manger on duty at the merrillville indiana location showed me to the back and than she checked her phone and than made a call to someone on the work phone (i assumed they needed help) she left without even saying anything to me. After 25 minutes she came back and told me that the position had already been filled. First thing I could think of why know one never called me to tell me to have me come all the way out here. In the middle of talking to me she than begin talking to someone else woth out even saying excuse me or anything . It was super unproductive. She than ask me my availability and I told her , which was the same I put on my application before I got the interview. She said have nothing with that availability. I told her thank you for her time and left. I will never be applying here again . Do not want to work for a company like. Don’t even waste time filling out the long application for no reason.
