I worked at American Greetings part-time (less than an year)

Pros

-Flexible-Schedule (sort of)
-Work alone

Cons

-Very unrealistic about EVERYTHING!!
-They will give you about 4 hours a week to complete tasks that take anywhere from 6-10 hours or more to be completed and then get mad at you when you don't complete your tasks.
-Management has entitlement issues. Very snotty and rude.
-They give merchandisers very outdated equipment, and expect them to work their butts off for very, very little pay
-The pay is so low it really only pays the gas it takes you to travel to and from your accounts.
-Oddly enough I was very stressed out during my time at American Greetings. I never knew being something as petty as a "Card fluffer" could be such a head ach.
-When I first started I was told that my boss was not able to keep merchandisers in my area. Now I know why.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get off your high horse. You are not saving lives, you are not protecting the public or doing any public service for that matter. You supervise card fluffers. You are really not as great as you make yourself out to be.
