Just wanted to pass this on.
By federal law an employer has to rehire a military member after their military service is over. Sears goes one farther by paying them the difference in there military wage and what they made working for sears, so their is no pay cut.
I am sure their are other companies doing it as well and I think we should let them know we appreciate it.

A lot of employers do that. Mine offered to do that as well and asked for one of my pay advices. I just laughed as I was making about $1,000 more per month as a Buck Sergeant on active duty than I was after 10 years working for the city.

Good to know. The sears hardware by my house has always been nicer than the box stores (lowes/Hdeopt) anyway.

This must be a recent policy. I find no language in my 2004 Sears & Roebuck, Co. handbook.

this is very nice, but Sears does not sell guns any more.
