Current Employee - Store Manager in Toronto, ON (Canada)

I have been working at Gymboree

Pros

Benefits are completely paid for in Canada
Organization loves promoting within and promotes by a persons abilities in performace rather than some companies that promote people who kiss butt. Which makes it a great place to work and you can respect the management members.
The customers are amazing
The company really supports when it comes to personal emergencies or issues

Cons

Hard to find a work and family balance
Your expected to be available as a manager all the time and if anything happens you need to be the one to come in because its your store.
You can not take more than 10 days consecutively off - it's retail.
There is always an event, so you spend a lot of times planning then taking down the event only to have to prepare for the next the very same day.

    Upper manager is very disorganized. Not enough hours for new line, replen, sales lead r always left alone. Need more sales leads

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more understanding. It's frustrating when everyone has kids and there isnt enough help to help out

    Pros

    Great customers...especially the "little" shoppers! It is very rewarding to be able to help them coordinate pieces to create a wardrobe that will last for years to come!

    Cons

    Sales Associates only allowed a "3hr" shift normally because payroll is very limited! Most end up leaving because it just doesnt pay for them to ride for 3hrs making min wage!
    Allocation problems creating added stress to the team!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to find ways to be a more attractive company to work for! Look at payroll......most stores need to have a full-time SM & full-time ASM!
