    I have been working at Paper Source part-time

    Pros

    I LOVE working at PS for the reason that I get to be creative at my retail job. I can make card samples on the clock! For someone like me who is a creative bird, PS provides the environment to be expressive, and to interact with other employees and customers who are also creative. I also enjoy doing the floorsets (before store hours), as that is challenging and fun. Every once in a while, I get to teach a workshop. I have mixed feelings about the teaching, since I'm basically a shy person and the job requires you to be outgoing and upbeat.

    Cons

    As is the case with all of part-time positions in retail, the hours vary wildly from week to week. When I was hired (6 years ago), they said my job would entail about 10 hours per week. At first, that was okay, as this was my first job in retail and I just wanted to get my feet wet. But as time went on, and I got more comfortable, I wanted more hours. Sometimes I do get them, particularly during the holiday season. But I have no control over the amount of hours I'm given, or the days that I work—schedules vary from week to week--so that is definitely a downside. Another con is the turnover of the full-time store manager. We are on our 5th manager in 6 years. This has an impact on how many hours you get because a new manager may not like you as much as the old one did (that happened to me). You have to prove yourself all over again every time there's a new manager and that is very stressful. Finally, although there is a creative atmosphere, which gives you the impression that things are laid-back, that is definitely NOT the case. There is a very strong emphasis on selling here. You have to engage with the customer and suggest-sell things with everyone. We get a lot of customers who come in for single birthday cards, but we are told that we should approach those customers too, asking them if they got that person a birthday gift or if they needed any other cards. Sometimes it's just overkill.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to and reward ALL your employees--not just the outgoing, loud ones. The quiet ones still have much to offer and may be more approachable to your customers.
