Pros

Good Employee Discount
Flexible Scheduling
Co-workers with similar interest/hobbies

Cons

No Insurance
Low Pay
Not enough time/materials/tools for classes
Discontinued Out of Inventory items are DESTROYED rather than donated to schools or non-profit groups
No recycling

Advice to Management

Make sure your instructors have time and materials to prepare for classes. Allow enough time for classes - does anybody in charge READ the customer evaluations? Provide ongoing training for employees - there are new products coming out all the time - teach us about them so we can sell them for you! And donate the old out of inventory items to a non-profit instead of destroying - so wasteful!

    Pros

    If you really are an avid scrapbooker and enjoy being around people who do, this is kind of a dream job. Archivers is truly a unique specialty retailer with a remarkably untapped and very focused niche.

    Cons

    Company going through lots of growing pains with the challenging ecomomic environment. Sales and service focused, but fewer sales associates to do the job.

    Advice to Management

    Get more input on what is going on at the store level from your Managers and people on the front line. Listen to them!

    Pros

    Fun, respectful atmosphere. Very good about time off.

    Cons

    They want the managers to have fewer associates on payroll, which equals more hours and less flexability. Everyone has to work a lot harder for less pay.

    Advice to Management

    Make employee opinions known to upper level management.
