I worked at American Greetings part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

a supportive area supervisor, good training, and schedule flexibility.

Cons

The one thing I disliked most about working for AG was how much paper was being thrown away--by my hand. After major holidays like Christmas and Easter, there was always a heavy amount of cards still left to be sold. Instead of donating the cards, or sending them off to be either recycled or reused the following year, I was told by my supervisor that they all needed to go in the trash. After several years of this, I could no longer take the blatant disregard for environmental responsibility.

I think it is safe to say if there was a method in place for excess cards, I would still be working with AG.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

please do something about the amount of seasonal cards you send. Also, try more eco-friendly approaches to excess card disposal.

    Hot inside building. Supervisors do not listen or help when there is a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your workers. Get the drama out of the workplace. Happy workers means more production.
