    When I worked at Crazy8, the workload was insane for a trainee.

    I worked at Crazy 8 part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    One of the reasons I liked working there was because I was allowed to interact with children which I love. They also consider the fact if you're a full-time student and work with you to make your schedule easy.

    Cons

    The management put a giant workload on trainees, especially for their first job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the workload on trainees, and be nicer to the trainees. Add more than two staff members to the floor so the store doesn't become hectic.

    Pros

    Small 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.

    Cons

    Hourly 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.

    I have been working at Crazy 8 full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more payroll and more staff.

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

    Pros

    Its great for the custo,ers and their wallets.

    Cons

    This company shows such little care for their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Crazy 8 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Low 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.
