When you are a part of any organization – for instance, a company, family or a community – it can be easy to focus your energy on what is going wrong. Your time is often filled with solving problems or preventing new ones before they happen. It’s important to own your mistakes, but you should also embrace what is working.
Sears Holdings’ vision is to improve the lives of our members and customers by providing quality services, products and solutions that earn their trust and build lifetime relationships. Our hiring, training and development programs create leaders and associates that deliver on this vision. One of our cultural beliefs is Show Pride. This means we are engaged members of our company and demonstrate passion and pride by leading by example.
We recently asked associates across the company to share why they are proud to be a part of the SHC team. It is always moving to see the member focus, teamwork and integrity of the over 200,000 associates who work for SHC. Every day we are getting better for our members and we have the great honor to have wonderful, dedicated people on our team doing it!
A sample of associates responses are below:
Sears, Consultative Sales Associate – Victor, New York
I am very proud to be part of SHC. From online and in-store shopping to home and car repair services integrating with Shop Your Way, it is truly a high standard of operation for any company. Also, our partners St. Jude, March of Dimes and our communities and families depend on our success. This is why I make it my duty and obligation to represent all that we stand for within and outside of the office. That’s what Show Pride looks like to me! #ShowPride
Kmart, Store Manager, Retail Services – Roseburg, Oregon
I have made lifelong friendships in the many stores I have worked at over my 22 years at Kmart. As I’ve explained to many, the reason I love my job is because of the people I work with! When I tell people outside of our company how long I have been with this organization they are truly shocked. I then explain that many of my coworkers have worked for SHC longer than I have and they are truly amazed. It says a lot about our organization. #ShowPride
Home Appliances, Divisional Vice President and General Manager, Appliance Builder Distributor – Hoffman Estates, Illinois
I am proud to be a part of such a strong organization of dynamic and talented individuals. Who knew when I joined how much I would fall in love with this business and industry? I am lucky to lead a great group of people who are making a positive impact on our business every day they come to work and engage with our clients and business partners. #ShowPride
Sears, Assistant Store Manager, Hardlines – Durham, North Carolina
Sears Holdings has distinguished itself from other leading retail competitors in so many ways. I love this corporation’s cultural beliefs. When I align my actions with these beliefs they not only make me a great employee and coworker, they also make me a better person. I’ve grown so much since I’ve started working for SHC. There are so many resources available and I continuously try to see, appreciate and make full use of those resources. I am proud to be a part of SHC. #ShowPride
Sears, Store Manager, Full Line Store – Nanuet, New York
I am proud to work at Sears Holdings. Every day I am helping shape what the future of retail is going to look like, and that is a huge deal. Our company has invested a lot in some amazing technology to make taking care of members easier. Our leaders are always open to listening to feedback and trying new ideas. I tell my friends and family to shop with us and to become Shop Your Way members so they can experience the great benefits of our membership. #ShowPride

Home Services, Director, Compliance, Regulatory Affairs – Hoffman Estates, Illinois
Sears was our family’s shopping destination when I was growing up. It has always been an icon of American retail and is very special to me. I was proud to join Sears 16 years ago and I remain proud to be a part of Sears. I have been privileged to work with many dedicated associates committed to serving our members and making the changes needed for Sears to succeed. And Sears strongly supports the military, our communities and many charitable groups like Heroes at Home and March of Dimes. #ShowPride
