So it's July and usually this is when there are layoffs at store level. Any of you insiders heard any news on layoffs?
Topics regarding layoffs at Sears
Seems to me like a valid question, although I doubt that anyone can deliver a precise answer.
If not liked it will be deleted..
Over 40 years this week. Not one word!!! Guess no one cares!!
This is absolutely absurd that they’re closing modernized stores in thriving malls while the aging stores with poor selection in c-ap malls keep chugging along. Even if the modern stores are barely in the black, breaking even, or somewhat... — read more
It’s the iniquitous, curmudgeons birthday. Eddie/ESL.
Does anyone at HE have any input as to when this may happen? A few weeks ago, someone discovered a Home and Life location in Burlington, MA near an old closed FLS despite this opening not being announced just yet. There may be more.
A customer cut himself really badly on one of our metal shelves in our tool department a couple of weeks ago. Jagged edge gashed his forearm pretty badly. I was off that day but heard that there was a trail of blood and that they used tee shirts from... — read more
I believe these three locations Willowbrook Mall Staten Island Mall, Exton Square Mall, the ones in Florida and California are just the beginning of a long term liquidation spiral that is going to occur in the next few months. At first, I thought... — read more
Temperatures in the 100s coming should spur sales of ac units also stuff like bikinis and pool equipment and lawn darts.

Any thoughts anyone?
The Sears in the Exton mall began its closing liquidation today. With the mall already missing one anchor slot after JC Penney closed several years ago (though one floor of the two was occupied by a Round 1 arcade) and practically half of the mall's... — read more
Just got hired for sales position and having doubts now I recently found out that a lot of the employees at a certain call center will be leaving due to the way the company cut everyones commision. Was told when I was hired was potential of making... — read more
Heard that there is going to be a pending lawsuit against the way sears cancels their sales for technicians and sales people that there was fraud. Anyone else hear anything?
Store in Staten Island is also set to close. This store was also a REIT store. It was remodeled and shrunken down. Now it’s closing. No store is safe!! Get out now. There are more coming before November!
Almost 2 months later, after I was laid off, they still owe me 40 hours of vacation time. I just checked on the payroll web. They deleted all of my hours and now it shows zero. Ex-manager is not answering the phone, HR is not answering the phone. I... — read more
We were just told yesterday that our store is closing in September. No store is safe. We are a REIT store that recently went thru a major remodel and was shrunken down to half the size 2 years ago. Not shocked but didn’t expect it so soon.
Did everyone get their signs, balloons and give away items for “Midsummer madness” AKA sears prime day next week?? I know we’re supposed to get an extra truck tomorrow I hope it’s got a lot on it because we are pretty low in the tool department!
Heard it today in Hoffman.. that's right Eddie is wanting to dramatically lower numbers in employment across the country. He's going to do it secretly from what was said. Getting rid of underperforming employees, high paid ones at that. So he doesn't... — read more
I found a Sears Home and Life listed on the Sears.com website but the store isn't open yet. If you google the address it takes you to a free standing store across the street from a mall Sears used to be at. The Sears.com even says it's a Home and... — read more
Kind of ironic. A few of my colleagues were let go shortly before Ch11 was announced. We felt bad for them, it was a sad moment. Now a couple of months after, they all landed new jobs and every single one of them is much happier than any of us that... — read more
It could be that Sears leadership honestly tried to operate the company for the future, but just made a horrible mess of it. The evidence, though, suggests a more insidious path. If your strategy is to harvest to death, you cannot let the public know... — read more
Newspapers stating once again hundreds of closings into 2020. Guess they know cause we sure don't.
How do some tech managers get away with what they do? After HR investigations regarding multiple employees about similar scenarios where this guy's in the wrong all day long, and he walks every single time clean and unscaled. I left and am happy but... — read more
It's amazing that Eddie's managed to own Sears for 15 years and has gone entirely ignorant the entire time that the discipline even exists. None of the metrics he focuses on acknowledges it, rather, it works against it. He actively destroys vendor... — read more
Does anyone have information or a guess how much longer they will keep the sales call centers for selling the warranties?
“All systems fixed” my a--... tried to book a hotel room through the Shop Your Way website and everything worked fine until I had to sign in. When I did, just refreshed the page back to the sign-in screen. Absolutely ridiculous, this company is a... — read more
This company wants to fail. All evidence points in this direction. Please consider updating your resume. There are better employers out there. Transform wishes you would voluntarily leave though. If your state unemployment benefits are enough to keep... — read more
Corporate has no idea where they're headed or what they're doing: Open positions VP, Treasurer Head of Technology (who is the next sacrificial lamb who leaves after getting paid a sh--load to give up in despair after a year or so?) Head of Online... — read more
When 99% of YouTube videos is walkthroughs of empty shelves, messy displays, poor product placement, and dirty bathrooms, and endless store closing signs, that's your brand. When there's no marketing circulars leading to no mindshare, and millennials... — read more
The biggest issue with Sears is that system documentation is not kept up to date. When changes are made, rarely are they documented. It doesn't matter who comes in to support the legacy Sears apps, they are going to have the same issues because when... — read more
