    Friendly and Personable company with good values.

    Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee)
    Clarksville, TN

    ProsSmall Stores with great product! Staff is extremely friendly and there are a lot of opportunities to advance your career with the company. Great visual merchandising and fun environment.

    ConsHourly wages and salaries are on the low side compared to other companies. Especially in the management area. Personal Time off is something that you only earn every pay period and it is never a full day just a half instead of giving full time employees a set amount each fiscal year. Not given enough payroll hours to meet all the needs of the store.

    Gymboree INC. in general expects to much from employees which became exhausting.

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
    Glendale, CA

    ProsIts great for the custo,ers and their wallets.

    ConsThis company shows such little care for their employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe training should actually be done and completed to the "T" and not just cliffnoted to the new employee.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place, just needs help.

    Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee)
    Mesquite, TX

    ProsStore Manager and District Manager are both incredibly involved with their employees and seem to really want the associates to succeed

    ConsDefinitely in need of more and better staff. Associates are all very green and naive, and in need of a lot of coaching.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed more payroll and more staff.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company to work for.

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
    Citrus Park, FL

    ProsGreat employees, managers are very friendly and helpful. Great customers and environment. Very easy job, customer service is important as you will be helping moms that shop at Gymboree as well. Raise every year and managers receive a bonus for being up on sales.

    ConsLow pay, not a lot of room to grow within the same store. This company works on a low payroll and you will be short staff more times then not.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    If you're a creative type and want a career, find something else. At best, this is an extra buck over holiday season.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Bloomington, IN

    ProsFantastic customers.
    Short shifts.
    Decent discounts.
    Working over Black Friday and Christmas can be quite fun. It's busy, there are a lot of hours and more so if you have open availability.

    ConsPoor compensation
    Short shifts after Holiday months, strictly part time, no pay raise, no benefits.
    Difficult to acquire another job to make ends meet because of on-call shifts and late hours.
    New line and markdowns with little time in terms of payroll means manager has to work overtime.
    Limited availability discourages management from considering you for promotion (for example: Sales Assoc. to Sales Lead)

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on promoting from inside the company. If hiring new managers from outside is absolutely necessary, train them as assistants under a knowledgeable and experienced manager. Throwing a newbie into the company puts stress on the entire sales team.
    Also, hire more full time employees. Having 1 full time, salaried manager, 1 part time asst. manager/sakes lead, 1 part time sales lead, and 4 part time sales associates is pretty ridiculous. Payroll has got some kinks to work out, there.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Decent Retail company

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)

    ProsSales plans are generally laid out.

    ConsStaffing is low and it is hard to follow through working in the store alone

    One of the most fun jobs I've ever had.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you love kids, you'll love this job. You get to interact with kids and help parents find the stuff they are looking for.

    ConsSmaller volume stores have less staff on hand, so it seems harder to advance. As an associate I got less hours, which was not very many at all.
