SEARS FALSE ADVERTISING - AGAIN!!!
I brought my mother in law to my local Sears Outlet store in Concord NC. She purchased a Bosch washing machine. The advertised sale at the time was no interest for 12 months if put on a Sears card. She was unable to qualify for a Sears credit card so the salesgirl (who knew me by name because I was such a frequent customer) suggested it be put on my credit card. In front of the salesgirl, my mother-in-law wrote 11 post dated checks to cover the entire purchase before the 12 months expired. Now, I see Sears charged me 25% interest. This is definitely FALSE ADVERTISEMENT, and by the looks of what other Sears customers have posted, it is a frequent occurrence. My bank has charged me overdraft charges because of these excess charges. I want interest and bank fees reimbused immediately. I will also contact Better Business Bureau.

Sears Duct Cleaning is a complete sham!
Two Sears workers showed up without the right equipment to do the job. I gave them another chance to do the job right. They returned with some little brush. After it got stuck in one of my vents I through them out. Good thing I didn't give them my credit card #. When I spoke to their boss on the phone he tells me that the equipment they came with was just as effective as the equipment in their video. When I asked the workers if they had that equipment with them they said so. So all they were doing was sticking an open ended pressurized hose down the duct work for just a few feet. Total Waste. Save yourself a lot a trouble and do not deal with this Co.

Sears/Carrier HVAC SCAM
Got another call from Sears Blue Ribbon Customer Service after my initial post on Pissed Consumer. I spoke with Ellen who was calling "to help me." After going over the whole senario again I get a phone message on my answering machine she cannot do anything it was turned over to the "legal" department which has already refused to fix the defective unit put in my house. I am interested in hearing from those wanting to join a class action suit with SEARS. I also am going to post an electronic billboard ad displaying the SEARS/CARRIER SCAM and name those involved in the scam. The company projects the billboard will get at least 10 million viewings. I am sending advance notice to all Carrier Dealers in town to advise them of the SEARS FRAUD and let them know the ad is coming. Anyone wanting to join in on this can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call my cell phone at 816-304-7747. Finally I am meeting with an attorney next week and I am filing complaints with the State Attorney General and the Department of Energy about SEARS/CARRIER selling HVAC units stating they are energy efficient when they are not and they do not cool effectively.
Sears in Boston, Massachusetts - Never again
Worst ever. Never again. I purchased a large work table for my company. I thought a brand like Sears would stand behind the purchase. They shipped it through another vendor Tiger Supplies. The Table arrived very damaged. I called the same day to have it replaced. 8 days later, after numerous 1 hour calls and countless emails - no response. Don't even think about purchasing online from these folks. You will be lost in a meaningless wasteland of overseas "customer service" drones with no power to do anything except read a script." Sears does not care about their customers and apparently, they don't care about the vendors that ship under their name. When you spend hundreds of dollars on an items, you expect it to arrive without damage. When you call customer service once, you expect to have the issue resolved. How difficult is it to ship out a new top?

Sears in Los Angeles, California - NO CUST SVC
Today Mar 23, 2012 at 11:30 am went to Sears Whittier,California store to buy Panasonic 50" TV on sale. roamed around looking at all the TV's and not a soul offered and/or bothered to acknowledge me and/or ask If I need help.. I saw one gentleman with a pad looking important and the other struggling to put a screen tv together. I left after 20 some minutes.. I can now see why you are having PROBLEMS It's seems the staff there is "waiting for the other shoe to fall" and seem to have "I don't care attitude.

I am writing to inform you of the complete hassle and trouble I am having ordering a stove and getting it delivered. First off I paid an extra 10 dollars to have my dishwasher and stove delivered on a Sunday. They came and the stove was BROKEN. not dented BROKEN. They informed me they were sorry and they would re-schedule. I, not the delivery guy, I had to sit on the phone for 20 minutes to reschedule the delivery. The lady told me she had to order the NEW stove and she will call back to discuss delivery dates. That was on 3/17/12. I called back on 3/19/12 when I didn't hear anything back. The girl who I spoke to was so incompetent I had to speak to her manager. Her manager tried to change the delivery date but the date SHE chose didn't work for ME. SHE tried to tell me that I have to work around THEIR schedule. I'm sorry but I had my delivery screwed up. I should not be working around any schedule. Finally we settled on a date and she promised me after 5:30pm delivery. After we chatted some more she made me aware that the SAME broken stove was scheduled for delivery and that she would have to order a new stove. She did and promised me after 5:30 on 3/23. This call lasted 27 mins. I called back on 3/22 to make sure my delivery times were correct. When I did it stated delivery was form 3:15 - 5:15. Not even a portion was inside the time we agreed on. I called back. I spoke to another incompetent person who then connected me to their manager. He was rude and arrogant and he lied to me a few times on the phone. After raising my voice and becoming extremely agitated he tried changing my delivery date again. As he was doing that he saw that they STILL had my old BROKEN stove scheduled for delivery. I was furious at this point. He put in a new order for a stove and set up the NEW delivery date for 3/24. I asked for a credit of my delivery charge because this was ridiculous. He told me he couldn't but after a heated debate all of a sudden he was able to do the credit. he needed my Sears Card Number. I was traveling and didn't have it on me so he told me to call that number back and they would credit my Delivery of 89.99. He also stated he would put all of the information in my records so when I call back It would be easy. Yea right. That call lasted 27 mins. I just now today 3/23 tried calling with my sears card number and waited on hold for 10 minutes and was hung up on. Called back again and waited on hold for another 16 minutes and was hung up on again. This is a total disgrace. Something needs to be done here. I NEED a call back with an explanation of what is going to be done and HOW. my phone number on the account is 2155198828 and my address is 1731 W. Ritner St Philadelphia PA 19145. My Salescheck number is 093002178531. I NEED a call back with a plan of action here. This is a disgrace on your companies part.
Sears Bourbonnais Illinois
A Sears employee yelled at my 8 year old daughter and called her a little *** for not properly re-folding shirts that she was looking at. I confronted the employee and demanded to speak to her manager. She just replied that she was the one in charge of the store and the days of letting kids run wild in HER store were over. I called the corporate headquarters the next day and the *** customer service lady told me that she didn't think that this was a major issue. No wonder that place is going out of business.
Sears in Burnaby, British Columbia - Total gong show
I ordered over a month in advance to get a product for my child for Christmas. Called weeks later to ask where the product is - they act kerfuffled and go "oh no one called you" and apparently my order wasn't processed correctly and left hanging in the system. And I was then informed it won't arrive for Christmas. Ok well that sucks. Fast forward several months. I tried ordering the same product through their site again for my child's birthday. Delivery date comes and goes. I phone "ohh, no one phoned you?" They claimed they had my credit card number wrong. I checked my credit card through my online banking and the money was withdrawn by Sears. It was credited back to my card a week or so later for some reason.. but either way they obviously had the correct card and it went through. And mistakes happen but again NO ONE PHONED ME to tell me that. So another special occasion where the gift is not showing up. Thanks Sears. The lady on the phone also tried patronizing me into a personal conversation to get my credit card number, though I kept politely saying I'm not interested anymore, and then she tries to humiliate me by saying she didn't mean to offend me and being overly personal and overbearing. Seriously, unprofessional. What is this place now a days, a warehouse run by kids?
Sears is no diety
We purchased a Kenmore Elite wall oven in September of 2009 to the tune of $2000+. May of 2011 it started turning itself on at 500degrees, turning itself off, and back on and making loud beeping noises awakening us in the middle of the night. We called for a service appointment and the technician came out no problem. He told us that there was a recall notice on the control unit and that Sears would replace it without cost. He had no explanation why we were not proactively contacted about the recall. He had no comment about my hypothetical question of what would Sears replace if my house had burned down due to this unit going wild when we were out of town. The control unit was replaced. Last night, less than 1 year later, the same problem began to occur. Upon calling the Repair department they had no record of a recall. I was told that Sears appiances "are not made by GOD" and that I should expect repairs. When, needless to say, I was not satisfied with that answer, I was passed on the the complaint department. Wonder of wonders, they did have details in my records of the recall but the replacement was only guaranteed for 90days. I do not believe this to be true, that this part is only good for 91 days and then needs replacement to the tune of several hundred $$$$s which is virtually what they are saying. I was offered $65 which I readily accepted which will cover neither the part nor the technician's visit. Here are my suspicions: 1. the replacement part was also faulty...this is a given since it lasted less than a year and I frankly don't cook that much, 2. Sears does not want to acknowledge the problem as there HAVE been fires associated with this product and there is a suit, 3. They think that they are averting trouble by buying me off with $65. They are not. My request for satisfaction: Get this potential death trap out of my house and give me my money back so I can go somewhere else and buy a safe oven that will work for longer than 3years.
*** over (Sears) been screwing people over for who knows how long
Sears is a good job if its your only option no one is ever on the same page about anything i had 3 supervisors in the 4 month period and the 3rd one walked out right after i quit none of them new what they where doing they would pass a question around untill you got sick of waiting and said forget it. When they give you incentives they will add more rules to make that incentive harder to get. No one has their own space they say their is no signed seating but the favorites just go to the supervisors and they make you move for them. during trainging they give you a set of rules to go by that are nothing like the rules on the floor,oooo and before i forget this some of the managers should go back and sit threw the trainging classes and be properlly trained so that one. they know what they are doing two. so they will all be on the same page. Promotions are a joke they are not promotions they are just new names to the same job you do already their is nothing different about them they use a new system ciboodle thats always down or always has problems with we are instructed to write everything down with the intetions of the supervisors are calling them back/or going back and putting them into the system, but we dont we write all that down and then the supervisors usually dispose of them leaving more angry customers for them to screw over this company is corrupt wouldnt wish this place on my worst enemy if you ahve a problem screwing people over then this isnt the job for you.
