Topics regarding layoffs at Sears
why when doing 991s, why would there be so many items on the floor but not on the 991 report The items must be in the system because they come up when doing updates, but they are not on the report. I had read on this site that the report updates on... read more
our store doesn't even have a repair shop anymore, if customer has a pa, we tell them it will be a week or to to get notice if we repair it or they get a new one. when actually we just stick in back room and junk it. then in a week we call them up to... read more
Yes your manager will tell you otherwise. We're done, folks. Several people here at HE already know this for a fact. Get out now.
Sounds like an excuse to me... Apparently our store used up too much payroll early in the year and now are cutting hours to repay that overspending by reducing staff hours, especially part timers now getting a 3 hour shift for the entire week..
The stores that were put in that auction site are no longer listed.. just wondering if anyone heard anything
Should be very interesting how the results of inventory will affect earnings Does anyone have inventory scheduled after July
The store closed after eighty years of continuous operation. This makes me so f'ing sad and angry. How did we get here???
Middle Village Kmart store, the chain's last Queens location, is closing in late October /
I think for long-term Sears Associates that the slow and painful death is the worst death of all, I know everybody wants to drink the Kool-Aid, I know everybody wants to be that last person sitting on that last chair before it’s pulled away, but that... read more
FYI, Anyone can be popcorn.
1) Find a new CEO. Current CEO is tarnished and can no longer lead effectively. The new CEO should have experience running a retail company or supply chain company or even someone like a general who commanded the supply chain during war time or... read more
And now all DMs will be Kmart DMs?
If regional folks are coming to your district on Thursday you are gone. I hope you have Uber so you can get home after they take your car. Popcorn
JUST HEARD FROM A FRIEND THAT THEY WENT IN HER KMART STORE THIS MORNING AND ARE SHUTTING IT DOWN IN OCTOBER...GAS CITY, INDIANA
Please only reply if you know, I know someone personally impacted.
Worked in the backroom for 8 years until store closed earlier this year. Kept noticing that we were getting more and more third-rate, no-name crap and less and less of the higher-quality stuff on our trucks as time went on. Our CRC pallets had to be... read more
So to summarize, no leads or coordinators were cut and by the looks not a lot went on with the District Managers. Maybe in the future.
Long live the hot buttered corn
What is the story for Home Services?

Review if you'd like to hear about doom/gloom - The source is listed below: Stock advising firm The Motley Fool offers a dark forecast for Sears Holdings and Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, both of which are facing "apocalyptic" scenarios. Sears... read more
Seems as though once Ed got his hands on SHO, SHO and SHLD are walking down the same path holding hands. Stores are closing, owners are given limited inventory, logistics is a nightmare, service is horrible, commissions are cut almost 2-3 weeks on... read more
Anybody knows if we get severance in case of a liquidation?
Best guess is that the media were waiting for official confirmation via the Illinois Warn Act which was released today for June (detailing the recent layoffs) 89K employees left in total for the org a number which surprised me, I thought it was at... read more
We are transforming. We will be the new Amazon. 90% of retail locations are going away except for hometown. Starting in September the Hometown stores will be allowed to buy existing company stores or get territorial rights to major cities. This is... read more
Post your state and when it was completed.. any results yet? If not completed post what state and when your inventory is scheduled
Sears is done. It's over people. Mark my words.
Debt extensions are only prolonging the agony, they have no chance of saving Sears. /
Employees at other companies going through similar things as Sears can at least hope that by some miracle their leadership will be replaced and they'll get somebody who'll actually be able to turn the company around. Not us, though. We are stuck with... read more

Someone cant handle the truth
Post the changes to your area(s) here.
So from now on they’re going to be making our schedules 2 weeks in advance. Is anybody else’s store doing this, and what do you think is the reasoning behind it?
We all know Eddie Lambert are selling profitable stores so when bankruptcy happens the rest get crap. Also forcing service employee's out the door with stupid write ups. So that way no unemployment. No dummy here. CYA
