Sears — don't let your kids work at sears
Do not let your kids work at sears. They take advantage of paying them minimum wage and are not a positive model of a child's first work experience. My child was accused of under ringing an item (A very minimal amount) , pulled into a room, drilled and made to fill out a form of what they preceived they did wrong, terminated and told them that nothing further would happen. Next thing is they had their law firm send a demand for payment and a large civil penalty. The kid hardly made that much while working there. The law firm could do nothing because they were following directions of sears. Made a call to the store loss prevention manager. We can't afford the penalty and lp stated they would see what they could do. Got a call back, pretty much told that there is nothing that could be done because if they did it for one they would have to do for all. I don't feel the penalty is worth that they call a crime. It's sad that such a large company gets its jollies from screwing up a kid and not giving a second chance to prove themselves. My kid is very upset on what happened and it has made for a very sad work experience. It's sad they thought my child was a great kid and a good worker. Sears just got richer - all the time my kid put in was for nothing and they benefited - because what they paid him, they are now taking back. We have shopped there for years and will never shop there again.
