Our money is all gone

I remember on these boards when we were shocked at the stock falling below $9 now it’s heading quickly to below $1. Remember last year when fast Eddie was providing his loans every few months? Where are theses sums now? The cash reserves are all... read more

Pause in store closings?

Is it just me or has it been a while since we've heard about another store closing? I think it has been at least a few weeks. How sad is it that I'm so used to hearing a new store would be closing minimum once a week, that having a few weeks without... read more

DGM visit next thursday

I think we all know thursdays are bad days to have a dgm visit, but my SGM got a text from our dgm about him coming to visit next Thursday. What are the chances this is a regular visit vs a “s---s to be you” your store is closing?

New Sears motto

"Make fewer do more with less!" At least that's what it seems to be the current motto, considering all the things they expect us to do WITHOUT any overtime, of course. Five people are doing the work of twenty at this point at my store. Nobody can... read more

COBRA benefits

Can anyone that has been laid off advise on how long its takes our sh--ty former employer to advise on options and cost for COBRA? They are full of paperwork for things you don't need and tight-lipped and pull a disappearing act on information you... read more

Are all the stores warm in the summer?

I walked into a GOB store from the mall yesterday and it immediately felt much warmer and much more humid. The place was like a sweat box. Is this a one off? Is it like this in normal stores or just GOB?

action plans and OKRs

Month end and we have to do action plans for every line we were down in, every metric and low Member feedback response rate. What's the sense anymore? Sales declines are not due to lack of efficiency in stores but due to a much higher level. No one... read more

Question about DM visit on inventory

I am curious if this could be the end of our store. I was hearing around that the DM was coming to the store on Sunday (which makes no sense since its on a weekend) and today the GM said that the DM was suppose to come tomorrow on inventory. I am... read more

Concerning ETHICS

I just find out that one of my co-workers in my department has been receiving full-time hours without being actually full time. All along we believed that was the reason he was getting guaranteed 32 hours while the rest were in the 15-20 range... read more

Wellness center closing

Just got the mail that the wellness center is closing this month. The gym is now going to be free and unstaffed. Certainly feels like the end is near.

HA Roadshow ????

No HA Roadshows this year? That's more telling than anything that everything is sunk. The vendors paid for those roadshows. No more I guess. Anyone have any intel on what happened?
