K,mart / Sears doesn't care about anybody. A store that's been permanently laying off long term 20, 30, 40 year term (a jail sentence by the way is shorter)employees for sometime now with the only excuse as a dissolved job only then to create a new one for a younger less expensive employee only cares about the money and whats going to keep them alive in the long hall.A store that used to be the heart and soul of the community, has become the place where you drop your kids off for a couple of hours babysitting and then go shop at Walmart and spend some real money. I know this for a fact as I know of an employee that got permanently laid off.In other words Kmart/Sears used up all you had to give now your 40, 50, 60 so now your gone. No partys no Sad Goodbyes.Insurance on the Cobra is now sky high and you can't afford it they say Sign this saying you won't talk about us and we'll let you retire peacefully.Good luck with a new job because statistics say once left go you have a 50/50 chance in 99 weeks of unemployment after that your window is dead. They might as well put you in the ground and cover you with dirt because in there eyes you are dead to the company and everyone else. So this is where they get my title as the store without a heart.

Just realize that everyone is covering their a$$. They really don't care about the stores, the employees or the customer. All they care about is meeting some metric that is determined by someone above them, which is set by someone above them etc. (Rinse, Repeat). It is every man/woman for themselves and as long as you perform whatever mundane, illogical, unprofessional, profit killing, customer losing, SYW, credit card hasseling, long chekout line, district manager pet-project they tell you, you will be O.K. The business will fail but you will survive until the next round of cuts.
It's a shame the people that make the decisions don't have a clue how to run a business.. They don't give a shit about their employees.. All that matters in their world is their bonuses..if they could get out of the counting house to see what really goes on.. And all of there clothing looks like it came over on the Mayflower.. Wake up..
Very Very true statements ...
Terrible way to treat employees. How you treat employees is ultimately reflected customer service. Shame on Sears and KMart.
