Sears Holdings Corporation Maternity Leave Comments
  • "In my store it is a predominately female management staff except for our General Store Manager. Where as some of the guys that are older and have been there for a few years seem to think they run the show, we on the management staff hold our own. I have used the Maternity before I was able to move up into a management position. I decided to only take 6 of the 12 weeks that was offered because that is all I could afford to take. Other than the few perverted customers that have come through overall the female staff is treated fairly and receive the same attention as the males. When the perverted customers come in the store manager and LP are the first ones to come running. Maybe I got lucky and have a great group of guys in our store, but I like working there. Otherwise I wouldn't have started three years ago and have grown with the company." - Anonymous
  • "I have worked here for almost 7 years and have seen upper level management come and go. The ones that are currently in the role are women yet have no understanding for working mothers and family commitments. My maternity leave was majority paid but came back to chaos with no one to support my advisers." - Anonymous
  • "I've worked here for 3 years and there are a lot of women working here, but predominantly in support roles. Generally I believe they are treated fairly but management is male-dominated and not diverse, which makes it tougher for women to "network" with them. Mid-level women don't seem to advance because of these subtle issues. Also, while maternity leave is generous here I think women are judged harshly by some colleagues and managers for taking the full time." - Anonymous
  • "I worked my way up in this company from a cashier to a store manager of a Kmart. I took maternity leave 2 years ago, with a C-section, so I received 8 weeks paid. If I hadn't had a C-section, I would have received 6 weeks. There are not a lot of other women in my position in this area, although I think there are throughout the country. However, another step up (district manager) there are hardly any women whatsoever, and when you take another step up (regional manager) there are none. Upper management just seems to be very male dominated and the culture is too. Women seem to be relegated to certain departments like apparel or human resources, and while these are wholly worthy places to be, we shouldn't be shut out of upper management and other powerful positions." - Anonymous
