I worked at Card Factory

Pros

Friendly staff, always something to do in the business, easy to learn about the card business, tills are easy to work, hours to suit available.

Cons

Bad pay, little communication from higher level staff, incompetent people promoted, bad treatment of temporary staff, horrible t-shirts given to staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay the staff better, stock more change in stores to avoid having to do a change run to other businesses, treat temporary staff better.
