    Pros

    You can set your own hours.

    Cons

    Expected to accomplish more work than given hours to complete it in. Too easy to work on your own time (volunteered time) in order to complete given assignments. Do not expect this job to support a living. Very part time. I am a hard worker, but overall felt taken advantage of.

    Pros

    American Greetings was an experience, because it taught me how to answer emails, efficiently and effectively, and give trouble shooting tips.

    Cons

    Everything that I've done at American Greeting was an experience, and when they gave constructive criticism, I learned from it.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for giving me the chance to work with the company, and for the company, it was an interesting job to learn from.

    Pros

    -Flexible hrs., it's a paycheck! Work on your own time. Limited supervision, Great for self starters.

    Cons

    -lots of work, little pay, working before and after major holidays. A few hrs scheduled per week. This is more of a part, part time job. No advancement!

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to get out more. Work in the field a few times a month to have a thorough understanding of the struggles in the field.

    Pros

    Variety of projects, trusting atmosphere between managers / coworkers, creative environment

    Cons

    Because of the size of the company, it seems that the culture is a little slower paced than other creative workplaces.

    I worked at American Greetings part-time

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule/Hours, Independent Work, Close Locations

    Cons

    Micro-managing supervisors, no lunch break/they get frustrated when you take any breaks, a lot of work with little scheduled time to complete activities well, no abilities for promotion

    Advice to Management

    Pick supervisors with better people skills who do not hide behind aisles to spy on their employees or threaten their job status every two months!

    Pros

    Work on your own. You pick the day you will work, within the time frame given. That is all I can think of as a pro.

    Cons

    Low pay, low hours, and store management can really cause hassles. I see they are hiring for the position I had last year, at a lower pay rate. That's really not worth it. Lots of waste. Lots to do in not enougb scheduled time. Very low travel pay.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better and give more time to complete tasks.

    Pros

    American Greetings was great because it offered flexible hours that fit around my schedule. The stores were easy to get to and the jobs were simple enough to understand.

    Cons

    The worst part was having to work every holiday. Since there are greeting cards for every holiday it was crucial that the displays be taken down by certain times which made it difficult to plan around special family holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Build better relationships with your stores. Sometimes store managers weren't very helpful for the merchandisers who worked in their stores and if made it difficult to complete the job.
