NEVER shopping at Sears again
We bought a dishwasher last year after waiting 10 years to be able to afford and install one. It hasn't worked properly since install and now erroring out part way through the cycle. Called Sears for repair on the service plan we paid hundreds of $ for, had to wait a week for first available appt. Technician cancelled day of service, had to wait another week, I called to confirm that he was coming, never showed. Lied about saying no one was home when he came and when I called the next day to complain to our local store the call record had been CHANGED to read that WE cancelled the service call. Of course the next available appointment is another week away - 3 weeks and counting. Foolishly purchased a refrigerator in June. We had them check before leaving the store to confirm it was in stock and they assured us it was, though it would still be 1.5 weeks before delivery. You guessed it - cancelled the day before. Big surprise - not really in stock, sales tactic. Had to wait another week. Really bad taste in my mouth. Really sorry I gave them thousands of dollars of our hard-earned money. Never again.
Sears Oven Comes With Parts Missing
We purchased a Sears Pro Double Wall oven .. and paid and electrician installer over $300 to put this in. When he arrived and opened the box .. the Oven was missing the mounting brackets to install the oven and the package with all the screws. Sears was very UN-helpful in trying to expedite the parts to us which they had left out of the carton. I will never buy another Sears product again. As a result of this we were without our any oven for over two weeks. For the cheap $3 part Sears lost my business for life. Very poor business model.
What happen to Sears?
to stevehaber, loudambrosio, RonaldBoire, RobertSchriesh., DaneDrobny, WilliamHarker, WilliamKunkler, WilliamPhelan, RobertRiecker, EdwardLampert, StevenMnuchin, AnnReese, EmilyScott, ThomasTisch Ladies and Gentleman, When I shop at a Sears retail location I expect to pay a little more for products because of the superior customer service that I have received in the past. If you have a perceived advantage in an area, why would you squander it in such a trying time for retail and the American economy as a whole. I am currently in the most deplorable frustrating dilemma that I have ever experienced with any purchase I have ever made. I recently purchased a gas range at a local Sears and the debacle began with the delivery company refusing to take my old range(I paid for removal) because it was not unplugged (LITERALLY- REFUSED TO UNPLUG A RANGE WHICH COULD HAVE BEEN DONE AT EITHER END OF THE CORD-gas was disconnected) then I tried multiple calls to customer service which led to multiple disconnections. Is the poor communication infrastructure the result of outsourcing your call centers? When I did have the opportunity to speak with alleged supervisors they fail to return calls and then the call is disconnected and the cycle repeats. I understand the need to explore different avenues for savings but to what end? If you destroy the only value proposition you currently have, what is the business plan for sustained growth in the future. If I wanted the lowest price on a product I would spend my hard earned dollars at Walmart, they have perfected that model and along with that I would have expected little or no customer service. Since 1893, Sears has been the quintessential American retailer- please save some folks their jobs and turn around the floundering behemoth you all have been chosen to run. Sincerely,
Unhappy with Sears appliances
We bought all new appliances from Sears based on consumer reports surveys paying more than we would have for other brands. We have had problems with each of them, but none more than the washing machine. Shortly after the warranty expired the clothes started coming out as dirty as we put them in. There is nothing we can do at this point except to pay for the service calls, which have not seemed to help. They have terrible customer service that are not friendly nor helpful. We will not be making any future purchases at Sears and will be encouraging friends and family to do the same.
I went to the Sears outlet store in Oakland CA 9 days ago and bought a refrigerator. They scheduled a delivery for two days ago and made automated calls to me 4 times and one email to confirm the delivery. I had my old refrigerator pulled out and all the food...
Sears Delivery Service
Sears Delivery and install? Nope just a drop off and no answers
I bought a new refrigerator and payed for them to deliver it and was told that the would put it in the kitchen hook it up and even move the old fridge for me. I was sold on that that would help me and my wife tremendously. They scheduled the delivery for the next day while my wife was at home and i was at work. they brought the new fridge into the front room and took some measurements and found out that they would have to use the larger back door in the house. they called their boss and said that, then their boss said that they were not allowed to go into the back yard and to leave it where it was. when my wife asked them why all they would tell her is that their boss said not to move it and left with no other answers.
In March 7, 2012, we contacted Sears to come out for a service call on a 4 year old Samsung 52" Plasma TV that originally cost $2,500 on sale. The technician did not show up on the day original told to us, but did come out the following day. We left the Technician to do his work in private while we ate are dinner. When the Technician was finished, he handed us an estimate of $249 for parts and another $250 for labor, which was on top of the $99 that was charged for him to come out. We were told we had 30 days to decide whether tofix the TV for them to hold that price. We did not feel that it was worth it, so we purchased another TV and gave this set to our grandson. My son opened the back of the TV and saw that the Technician had removed the part that required replacing. My son was able to replace it for $3.50. This is well below the $249 part cost. Now if Sears has a mark of of well over 9000%, then I'm surprised they have any customers. Then to add another $250 for labor for a job that should have been completed when the Technician was out there is unbelievable. Frankly, I believe this is closer to fraud. I attempted to discuss this with a manager at their service dept., however, I only was elevated up one department to an individual who doesn't give their last name only a number. Their answer was to reimburse me back $50 for the service call. Unfortunately, she did not realize it was about the money, it was about frauding the customer. Then she asked if I would use them in the future. Are you kidding me, I need to trust the people I'm going to and I certainly do not have any trust in Sears.
Sears Delivery and Customer Service
CHECK BEFORE YOU BUY FROM SEARS!: I agree with some other comments here...Sears Home Delivery is the WORST! I paid a couple thousand dollars for a new washer and dryer. It was delivered on the appropriate day. However, the guys who "put it together" apparently do NOT know how to read instructions. The first time I used it, the 250# washer was rocking all over the place! When I looked it over, I found that half of the screws were missing, the lock nuts were wrong, and half of the attachment pieces were missing! So, I immediately called them and was told that they would be back out on Monday, July 9. I never received a call last night. So, I called them today only to be told that they will be here on Wednesday! What the ***????? I am livid! And I know that Sears may or may not read this. Either way, I know they DO NOT CARE about their customers!!!!! I have been a Sears customer for over 20 years, and their service has gotten worse over time. I will most likely NOT being using Sears again. And, I intend to spread this message wherever I can!
Sears Delivery Service
Sears in Brick Township, New Jersey - Problem still not resolved
My refrigerator has been broke since May 28th 2012, and as of today July 8, 2012, Sears has still not resolved the problem. I purchased the Service Smart Protection Agreement on May 31, 2012. I scheduled for a service agent to come look at my refrigerator. The first agent that came told me that the fan was broken, he ordered a new fan, and told me to call and schedule a new appointment as soon as the I received the new part in the mail. When I received the part I called 18004myhome to see when I was able to get an agent out. I had to wait over a week for the next appointment. I explained it was a refrigerator, I had children in the house, and we did not have an alternate place to store our food but they said there was nothing they could do. My next appointment a new agent came. He was extremely rude to me on the phone and rude to me while in my home. He replaced the fan and told me the refrigerator was working fine. I went out and bought all new food and put everything away. When I got home I saw that the refrigerator was running but blowing out hot air. All of my groceries were ruined and water had overflowed, dripped on to my floor, and caused my new floor to buckle. I then called 18004myhome again, explained the situation, and had to wait about a week for someone else to come. I informed Sears that I did not want the last guy who was at my house again because he was rude and I did not feel like he knew what he was doing. An agent came out and diagnosed the problem. He stated that once the parts came in to call and make an appointment. Once I received the parts I made an appointment and had to wait about a week for someone to come and put the parts in. I requested a certain agent because the last one was horrible. The day of my scheduled appointment, I get a phone call from the same guy that was at my house last time. He called and said he would be there in 15 minutes maybe sooner and I explained that the window of time I was given was 1-5. It was 12:00 but that I would be there by 12:30. The agent was extremely rude to me on the phone and annoyed that he would have to wait. I called and cancelled this appointment and had to wait approximately one more week for another appointment. An agent came to put the parts in, unfortunately he was not able to get the refrigerator running . Sears called it a loss and the agent said that I had to call a certain # to get the $500 that my agreement stated I would get if they were unable to fix my refrigerator. I have been waiting since June 20h to find out about the $500. I have called 18004myhome countless times, waited for hours, been transferred from person to person, with no resolution. Sears told me I had to set up an appointment to have an agent come out again, to verify that the refrigerator was a loss when I was already told this at may last appointment. An agent came and stated that he had no idea why they made me go through all this that he already declared it a loss at the last appointment. I have been calling Sears and still have not been able to come to a resolution. I also saw that when the agent used a lighter to connect the new metal parts together he made 3 burn marks on my new tiles.
Sears in Washington, District Of Columbia - Bad Pair of Glasses - catracts - sub optomterist
Eye Exam $55; glasses $271.48 on 11/28/2011; 2nd eye exam $20 on 2/8/2011 = $346.48. The subsitute optomtirst recommend that within the next 2 years that my friend get his eyes checked for cataracts - BUT recommend that the glasses be made - well they made his eyes worse until he could no longer read unless using a maginifying glass with the bifocle glasses! plus caussed problems driving. The regular optomterist immediately sent him to a specialist since intial visit on April 26 we have been going there 7 thus far the 8th coming up so far a totasl after medicare is 716.70 but i am sure there are at lest 2 more bills yet; 3rd for the next visit and yet the glasses what medicare does not pay for... Sears said they would make them right - at first offered to refound the glsses price but thats went down the drain called other other day and now they demand replacement under warranty and a co-pay of $40 well guess what Sears has lost him as a customer in the future and possibly me for mine and we have been goign to Sears Optical since 1997. I say the glasses should of never been made for him but what do I know its a nice way to rip off the elderly he is 78 years of age, and have right to complain since the payments all came from me through my bank account
