Line Design Intern

I worked at American Greetings as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Interns are exposed to the wonderful world of greeting cards, including the process from creation to retail placement, and the joys of waiting some 1 to 2 years for it to show up in a store.

Cons

It's a family owned/family run business. Unless your last name is Weiss, you can forget taking over one day. Your working days are filled with long, and often unnecessary meetings. They like to meet to meet. They're Hallmark's competitor, so there's also a bit of "we're number 2" attitude; they're content where they are in the eyes of the consumer but that may be because it's next to impossible to outshine Hallmark.

Advice to Management

Spend time getting to know the interns.

    Pros

    My division was very casual, I could wear jeans every day, and we had free soda.

    Cons

    They are very fickle about who they value as employees.


  2. Not as organized as It should be, considering size of company.

    I worked at American Greetings part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -flexible schedule (mostly) -interesting work -nice merchandiser training vids

    Cons

    -wasteful with product -high turnover in management -not great pay and hard rushed work

    Advice to Management

    -pay attention to who is working hard and realize that things can't always get done in the time given. Even by the best and fastest merchandisers. Improve on the training once someone is promoted. Don't just throw them into position and expect them to know everything.
