Sears Does Reservist Troops Right!

We at SplodeTV felt the below email was worth reprinting here. SplodeTV salutes you Sears!


"I know I needed this reminder since Sears isn't always my first choice. Amazing when you think of how long the war has lasted and they haven't withdrawn from their commitment. Could we each buy at least one thing at Sears this year?


How does Sears treat its employees who are called up for military duty? By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being called up.


Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all called up reservist employees for up to two years.


I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution. I suggest we all shop at Sears, and be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement it well deserves. "

Pass it on.

Decided to check this before I sent it forward. So I sent the following e-mail to the Sears Customer Service Department:


I received this e-mail and I would like to know if it is true. If it is, the Internet may have just become one very good source of advertisement for your company. I know I would go out of my way to buy products from Sears instead of another store for a like item, even if it's cheaper at that store.


This is their answer to my e-mail:

Dear Customer:

Thank you for contacting Sears.The information is factual. We appreciate your positive feedback.

Sears regards service to our country as one of greatest sacrifices our young men and women can make. We are happy to do our part to lessen the burden they bear at this time.

These days when downsizing is the norm and workers are left by the wayside just to show a better bottom line. Its nice to see some company's show this kind of social responsibility.

We need to see more companies like this and we should support these guys with our business especially in these trying times.

Here is a link to Sears Holding Corp. that explains this program in greater detail. Look for heading "Military Pay Differential and Benefits Continuation". Salute to Sears.

I'm a national guardsman and have spent year(s) on active duty since 9/11. Sears also goes above and beyond to their credit card holders who have been called to active duty. They are required to reduce the intrest rate to %6 and min monthly payments but they have reduced mine to %0 and do not require ANY minimum monthly payment as long as I am on active duty orders. I highly recommend Sears to all my friends and family.
