Thread regarding Sears layoffs

Closures

There are at least three Kmarts in the North East region not announced but will be next week. Also all full time associates will be cut to part time or they can take a severence package. Assistant manager positions will be eliminated as well with same options but they must take a big cut in pay. Hardline and softline supervisors will be the only full time management besides store manager. It will be a blood bath this week.

Was anything ever disclosed re: any additional locations?

Well they should just shut the doors on every store there no way a hard lines and soft line supervisors can run a store by them self. SMG wont help out and most part timers will leave. reset, data. pricing Positions need to be full time and i don't know about anybody else but i rely on our ASM more than our SMG. Its just Sad that it come down to this. 96

I think they don't have any plans for customer service just running down the inventory before store closures

If that happens at our store, basically every FT affected is guaranteed to just take the severance and leave. We've already been severely understaffed since the big layoffs at the beginning of 2017, never having more than a third of the PT requirement, so it's always been on us to pick up the slack everywhere. There would be absolutely no reason for any of us to stay, not that there's really much lately. I'm not even sure the one supervisor we have would stick around if everything then ends up falling on them. They'd have to find a way to run a store where all the PTs know how to do is run registers and put out hardlines freight that someone tells them to put out.

Wow that is just savage. At this point any FT that is going to be demoted PT should take the severance pay and leave. Why would you stay to be a PT so you get 10 hours a week when in the severance pay you are assured a paid break along with unemployment next. I am curious what cuts are coming to the Sears side.

Maybe they are waiting for the entire store management team to come back from vacation. Two out of the three in my store won't be back until next week and the store manager is out today.

Sad to say, but the management level in my store right now isnt really managing much. Like the front end when all three cashiers took their breaks at the same time... and the customer service associate called out... MOD is called to the front end by a softlines associate (who isn't assigned register duties and never trained on one) and is told by the MOD to ring up all the annoyed lines of customers at the service desk. MOD shows up 10 minutes later pissed off that no one has been rung up.

Kmart smart!

Is this applying to Kmart and Sears?

Don’t worry AP managers are safe.

What stores?

by | Post ID:

Yeah. Seriously. F--- Eddie Lambert! !!!

by | Post ID:

I agree. How can associates work like this with the not knowing from day to day. How can good customer care come from all of this. Just close the whole chain and end the slow slow death.

by | Post ID:

What's the point of all of this? Why not just shut the damn company down? How can we sell more under these conditions? Screw you Eddie.
