I have been working at American Greetings part-time for more than a year

Pros

As a merchandiser your work is independent, you pick your hours/times

Cons

Training is minimal! But worst, You are expected to do massive tasks in unreasonable time limits. Someone from an office 8 hours away cannot feasibly know what has to be done, or what mess you will encounter. Yet they set your hours, sometimes you're expected to get 2 hrs of work done in 30 minutes. You never know how communication with main office will be, some reps are very helpful, most are hateful!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend more time intricately training new employees, walking them through procedures. Though video training is helpful, but not always realistic. Allow more time for expected completion of work.

    I have been working at American Greetings part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    flexible hours, on your own, and if you love organization then this is the place for that. if you need more time with your family then this is a great place. it gives you that flexibility.

    Cons

    not enough time, team leaders are very conspiratorial and backstabbing, and if they don't like you they find ways to take you out of your stores. some of the area supervisors have this attitude that they know it all. they have some form of a click together. they are very demanding for such small pay and no hours. it's a shame that this company is the most wasteful company ever. they throw too much product away instead of reusing it or dropping the price down. i don't agree with throwing product out. i agree with reselling it for a smaller price or reusing the product for next year or taking it to a 99 cent store for reduction and still get a tax write off for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    why don't you find better ways to give more hours to the vendors, and hire more empathetic area supervisors. how about stop throwing product away and give only what is needed in the store. don't waste product. makes me sick! figure out how to get your tax write off without throwing product away!
