HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sears Holdings (NASDAQ: SHLD) announced today that it has been ranked 14 th in the 2013 Top 100 Military Friendly Employers® list by G.I. Jobs. This marks the seventh year in a row the company has been included in the Top 100 Military Friendly Employers® list, which was compiled from a data-driven survey sample of 5,000 companies whose annual revenues exceeded $500 million. Criteria for selection to the Top 100 list included the strength of company military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs, and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.

Sears Holdings' company profile, including open positions that are a fit for military personnel, can be found on MilitaryFriendly.com.  Using the priority data engine on MilitaryFriendly.com, job seekers are able to view the ranked Top 100 employers compiled according to list methodology as well as design their own custom lists according to their preferences. Custom, user-directed lists can then be saved and shared socially, allowing each job seeker to find their unique #1 Military Friendly Employer®.

"Military talent is woven into the fabric of Sears Holdings.  We employ more than 30,000 military veterans and hire thousands every year because they bring a unique combination of tangible skills such as logistics and technology, combined with intangible talents like leadership and a winning spirit," said Lou D'Ambrosio, chief executive officer and president, Sears Holdings.

Now in its 10th year, the Top 100 Military Friendly Employers® list is the premier resource for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment.  The survey results that determined the 2013 list were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by G.I. Jobs. Each year companies taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an Advisory Board consisting of leaders in the military recruitment community.  A full list of board members can be found at www.MilitaryFriendly.com/board.

Sears Holdings was recognized for its support of military veterans, National Guard and Reserve members with its Military Recruitment program. The Military Recruitment program provides outreach and professional development opportunities for employees with military backgrounds and assists them with the transition from the military to a corporate culture. In addition, Sears Holdings has created the Associate Military Support Network (an employee resource group), which is designed for transitioning military veterans and assures a smooth on-boarding at Sears Holdings.
