Topics regarding layoffs at Sears
They are already closing more stores than was on the last list. There are at least a few more kmarts and some sears that are closing in our district that were not listed on the last closing list so the numbers are really larger than reported. Yes... read more
We cancel orders all the time because we dont have the merchandise. We have called around to stores within 50 miles of our store and they dont have it either. This seems to happen more and more not just with mattresses but even tools, bedding... read more
I cannot get any info on Simple Store or One Touch at all other than a few Pebble posts with higher ups bantering about how well it is working for the stores that are doing this.
You all talking about vendors not sending product to sears stores , well our truck was today and was full of everything,including tools lawn & garden clothes... all new stuff not from a closing store . So our Michigan store is closing they forgot to... read more
Just did my daily walk and I saw boxes stacked up in some places.
We ought to start an online pool. But ESL would probably enter under an alias and rip us off. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_defunct_department_stores_of_the_United_States
Two of our suppliers keep pushing delivery dates further and further. Customers get a call on the delivery date stating another week out or even an indefinite delay. There was a one day Stop Sell weeks ago and they are blaming the delays on catching... read more
Executive leadership has made the decision that due to the "going concern" now would be a good time to stop.
Today at 12:00 pm central there will be a panel to discuss the effectiveness of transformation panels. All are invited to attend. A schedule of panels to discuss the effectiveness of panels who discuss panels will be forthcoming in the next couple... read more
I found the title of this article really appropriate: The Not-So Shocking Demise of Sears. I think this part is my favorite: "Sears then split itself into several different business units, a decision that caused internal tension, anger, and... read more
It seems that some of our vendors know more about what is going on, and they seem to have no problem disclosing it. Yesterday I talked to one of ours as they were being checked in and they informed me that the SM at one of the stores in my locale... read more
SHC announced today as part of their ongoing transformation to "right size" the company, they have made the difficult decision to continue to find ways to cut expenses. Effective August 6th and going forward the following "convenience" items will no... read more
No one in their right mind would even consider trying to buy them. 2 brands which were once synonymous with American retail are now synonymous with second rate flea market at best. Lots of childhood memories at both but the new reality is no one... read more
At our rally meeting before open we were told that our store (a Sears) had been selected for "simple store/one touch" and that merchandising processes will change in the coming weeks. What should our store expect with this new change? Do our hours... read more
Big question what will happen this Q2 is over and will likely end with another fail ... more store closings to come, so i have heard from a current liquidator in a Michigan sears store they already have others planned on going into once tbe one their... read more
announces they will convert all remaining Kmart stores into adult bookstores by the end of the 3rd quarter.
Just wanted to start this thread to post updates on the panel today for those of us that can't watch
This is a site, where already unhappy people discuss rumors and vent about life at a failing company. I am not sure why the corporate trolls try to put a positive spin on continuous layoffs and store closures. The morale overall is terrible, due to... read more
(Long explanation incoming....) As someone who is looking at this from a neutral point of view I can understand both sides. In one hand I think that everyone deserves to be informed about what's going on and the risk involved when it comes to working... read more
I'm growing really tired of the trolls on here, not only the corporate cheerleaders but also of the ones that have such a huge chip on their shoulder that they feel they need to post s-xual innuendos or things way out in left field, having nothing to... read more
Well, at least this is something. Sears Canada is being boycotted in its clearance sale by customers for its treatment of workers (mainly, layoffs with no severance pay). Not that it will mean anything, mind you, but still... Something?... read more
I'm a store manager and the situation is truly awful. Due to the cut backs I now am responsible for 5 stores and have had my pay "enhanced" by receiving 50% in plain old "boring" dollars and 50% in the incredible Shop Your Way Points. I can no longer... read more
We were one of the first Sears stores to go through the transformation. We are now a smaller footprint because jewelry, apparel, footwear, and electronics were eliminated. The company continues the transformation process and as they convert more... read more
Our DM came in to the Store today and confirmed that the amazon announcement was just the tip! In the coming days there will be a series of major announcements regarding the new strategic partnership with Amazon and we were told to begin really... read more
I worked at Hoffman for a year and was part of the layoffs at the beginning of the year. It's come to my attention that there are more than just layoffs happening at SHC, especially corporate at Hoffman. There are a lot of upper management shifts... read more
Should I be worried that my store hasn't seen anything for Christmas yet? No trees, no decor, no winter stuff. Shouldn't we have it by now?
Everyone is aware of this site from corporate to DM to AP to SM to ASM and store level employees. We are somewhat aware of the situation at hand. Only person that know the true motive is Eddie himself. We can speculate , make our judgment and... read more
At a morning huddle we were told not to complain or be negative, or we would be gone quickly. This is great for morale, (sarcasm) . Truthfully I thought this was totally unprofessional. And so did many of my peers. Management does not want to hear... read more
Home services lead generator, going to sit in mall and read on my kindle and let Sears pay me. I want to get fired and collect unemployment.
I left sears after working in the appliance department for 27 years and wonder if morons still come bustling into the store to hover about you to make a payment as you try to make a sale. We used to go to elaborate lengths to avoid these nuisances.
you can tell the posts are coming mostly from the upper management ... almost zero posts on here during the weekends when the average person is still working the weekends, and nights

Once or twice I have done it on this site, posted fake upcoming layoff dates, nothing I'm proud of. When I did it I did it to stir the pot to get feedback from those on this forum to see if layoff rumors I was hearing were true. I was worried about... read more
