Just curious as my shift begins today at 4am-3pm and I plan on taking all my breaks and both of my lunches that are scheduled! I’m not happy about this long shift ! Bad karma to the management that didn’t hire enough seasonal to make this voluntary

Topics regarding layoffs at Sears
Some good news for buildings Sears abandoned decades ago, but their newer buildings are too ugly/boring: /
Popcorn here and my Kmart sources say that as of 6PM Kmart was down over 10 million in sales to last year. Its going to be ugly avg store going to be down 60-70% to Last Year.
Wish everyone a great overnight experience Maybe customers won’t mess store up too bad between 6-12am Good luck
And they’re all empty. Broken merchandise. /
On day #2...eight more to go... Apparently a day off isn't deserved after fully participating through Thanksgiving week and pulling more than my share. I'm at 51 hours by the end of this week. Turning in my notice tomorrow. I should leave immediately... read more
Hope signing goes well since the holiday blow out sale was extended and don’t think all the signs are right 🦃 early activation at 7 & 8 😩 and looked like door busters that were to start at store opening 11/22 got pushed back to tomorrow but of course... read more
There are still a few assets left that are not spoken for yet regardless of what anyone says. The Kenmore and Diehard name still have value. Their appliance repair business is profitable. I believe these assets will be sold before bankruptcy unless... read more
As bad as it has become to even have to work on Thanksgiving at least sears doesn’t open til 6PM I seen Carson’s ad they open at 11AM Thanksgiving Day Total erosion of a family holiday! America survived how long with no shopping on Thanksgiving?? I... read more
Everlast apparel and shoes are apparently OUT at kmart. The name is licensed by Sears Holdings at both Sears and kmart for products it designs and sells.
Best of luck to all of you guys in stores this Thanksgiving holiday weekend. As much as I dislike being unemployed (laid off in the June/July bloodbath) the one bright spot is the fact I don't have to stare at the morons in the corporate Sears "war... read more
Quit whining. A shuttered store is the best thing that can happen to you. Look at the questions from a future employer: what did you do? I increased profits in my department by 50% and increased CSATS scores110%. If your store is closed how can they... read more
The madness begins!! Ugh I was hust curious if there is an ad in the morning if 11/22 since early activation doesn’t start til 7&8pm tomorrow night
Call me ignorant, but is SHLD still in the gift card business? Notify anyone you know to not buy this high risk venture. It is only a loan on personal money to Eddie for repayment, which given the circumstances could be detrimental to all involved.
As someone else has eluded to, Eddie owns a major stake in both Auto Nation and Sears Sears could be planning a deal with Auto Nation. Why else would Sears amend its loan agreements to allow for a sale of its auto centers.
So, I've heard it once I've heard it a thousand times on this board. Sears is going out of business. Its the longest bankruptcy sale in history, a slo-motion bankruptcy. Sure they are. We are not the first retailer to faces a challenging environment... read more
Ring ring. Who's there? It's your margin call.
We just received our first delivery of Daewoo merchandise. Lets the crap selling begin!
Why on earth would sears signs be early activated so late in the day on Wednesday since nobody is going to do an over nighter Wednesday going into Thanksgiving or am I reading it wrong?
Have just been informed Sears HI will now be hourly, just in time for the best sales of the year are coming . Commissions will be gone!!!!!! This is horrible for sears to do to the employees, makes me sick knowing what is happening, the ceiling is... read more
If the brick and mortor mall stores close what will become of all the SEARS Auto centers? SEARS still to this day has the best price and variety on Goodyear, Michelin, Uniroyal, and Cooper tires anywhere. I still shop at SEARS Auto for tires... read more
When Sears (likely) files for bankruptcy, will it be Chapter 11 or Chapter 7? Either way, Lampert will make out well as he's the primary lienholder. Also, would this be the biggest retail bankruptcy of all time in the US?

Not sure how it’s been going for you guys but the blowout has blown out all of our stock on certain items. For example Nextec batteries, we finally started getting them in again and they are wiped out. And from what I can tell we won’t be getting... read more
Since the shopping season has arrived and now we get rediculous schedules I was wondering, there are some that do take the bus to work and Home so... Will there be security for these employees waiting for the bus when their shift ends at 1AM, or in... read more
Hello all! Without going into too many details, this is my last week as a salesperson at a Sears store after 3 years. I found a job in the field I was studying and wasn't sticking around to find out what was going to happen to this company. For those... read more
Show up bright eyed and bushy tailed for your long shifts between a couple of hours sleep!
Have you looked at this book? Why publish a glorified ad with full prices in bolder print! Oh well... I guess you just use as a reference book! What a waste of money
closing our sears store and we are entire district is only at 67% to last year, I score that as a failure, even with the huge BLOW OUT sale we s---ed as a company... let the liquidation push on and just file the BK and get it over with EDDIE.
I’m dreading it! The constant sign changes is mind boggling and painful 😩 I heard Wednesday there is a morning and afternoon ad? Ugh...is that true? The hours are brutal Thursday & Friday- is everyone happy with your shift ? But the one thing I do... read more
Management either lied and said they DID hire seasonal help Or Seasonal help quickly figured out that Sears is not where they want to work without any kind of employee discount Did your store get a lot of seasonal help? If they hired enough to begin... read more
Eddie, I’m tired of your repeated replies on this board about “moving on” and “getting over it”. I also resent your implications that we are “lazy employees “. I think it’s time you man up and accept the responsibility of what you’ve done to this... read more
Back in 2002, K-Mart went bankrupt and was at Caa3 shortly before they went bankrupt (The day they went bankrupt they were downgraded to C which stands for default). They also had their ratings downgraded twice in a very short period of time. Sears... read more
Supposedly it is in place for shrink purposes. I don't see how. Levis are stll being stolen, even with the ink tags on them. Ink tag removers are $10 on eBay. AP knows this but hasn't done anything about it (and not just for Levi's, but for the whole... read more
No stairs in store and escalators don’t work. How are people supposed to shop at the busiest time of year if they can’t even get from 1st floor to 2nd floor without having to go into mall. Fix your stuff Sears and get with it.
I did not work the 2 days all the Blowout signs were put up.. just curious I heard Wednesday a new ad starts Going to be interesting to see how many signs we get since current ones have been up since Oct 18th or 19th
