    Former Employee - Receptionist in Carlsbad, CA

    I worked at Modern Postcard full-time (more than an year)


    The training was great and this being my first "grown-up" job in a corporate environment, I learned a lot about customer service, marketing and professionalism. The culture was collaborative, innovative and fun. We had free lunch, tons of parties, activities and gift cards handed out often. I know there was a time when things went down hill at same time I was here from 2005-2007 when things were awesome.


    My pay was pretty low, at the same time I valued my experience here a lot.
