Should you sear a pot roast?
Honestly, it is personal preference on whether you want to sear your pot roast before adding the rest of the ingredients. Searing your meat in a skillet with a little olive oil helps bring out more flavor, however it does take an extra step and some additional time.
After searing your roast, follow the recipe as is, there is no need to adjust the cooking time.

Overcooking the roast will result in the meat being tough. You also want to ensure there is enough liquid in the crock pot.

You can certainly opt to use the method best for you. However, I find that the meat is much more tender cooked on the low setting.
