12 hours one week, 30 hours the next. Depends on how they personally feel about you. Gave some ppl only a few hours if they call out 1 day. They took way too many things personally. If you put in your two weeks they'll either give you no hours at all or almost 40 hours.

The hours are NEVER stable unless you are full time which is being a manager or lead. There is no guarantee you'll have the same hours next week. Which is why I do not reccomend working here because it is not stable or guaranteed.

The hours are never ever stable unless your a full time manager. They fluctuate all the time and definitely not a job to get if you are trying to support a family. It is mostly based on if you get a lot of credit apps you'll get a lot of hours if you don't you'll be fired or will get little to now hours. Bottom line the hours are not stable.

Except for the managers, just about everybody in my store was part time. I was let go because my full-time position as a Backroom Associate was eliminated. The company is in a death spiral and trying to cut cost where ever it can. Consider Sears only for part-time and temporary work, because I don't think this company will be around much longer.

If you are full time they will do their best to give you the hours agreed upon in your contract. If you are part time will get full or overtime during the holiday season for sure, they always need it. Traffic picks up again during late summer. The rest of the year you may find you have inconsistent or even no hours for the week.

I worked as Apparel associate. Folding clothes constantly. Over and over in means dept. I worked 4 hours in a store in hicksville NY with no ventilation. I seated while fixing and putting away clothes. Had the worst hours. Worked at night. They told me I couldn't leave until entire store was tidy even though the knew my ride was waiting out side 10:00 PM. My shift was 5:00 - 9:45. With bad things happening these days I feared for my life. Some customers even scared me. So I no longer work there. Too many managers telling me what to do and some associates didn't even work they stood around talking and bossing me around. I didn't mind my job but didn't like being pulled from one end of store to the other. Couldn't even finished my job in my dept. Management should learn how to be managers.
