Pros

Well I worked my way up through gymboree. I was a sales associate and then became a Stock room manager which that title really doesn't exist but that is what I was called. Then I became an Assistant Manager at Crazy 8 (owned by gymboree). Pros for working for this company are that there is always room to grow. The people are great and its a fun environment.

Cons

Cons for working here are there is no full time for anyone except the store manager (very few stores have a full time assistant manager) and working part time you only get like tops 10 hours a week through most of the year now when Christmas season starts you might get more but they hire a few more people. The working 10 hours is for a sales associate a manager part time would get about 30+ hours maybe a little less like 25.

    Pros

    The people, atmosphere, ok discount

    Cons

    Lack of hours. Too much freight for a little store.

    Advice to Management

    During big sales like Gymbucks redemption, Circle of Friends and Big Red Balloon don't cut down the hours. How are we supposed to make our "day" when you give us lousy hours. We can't sell if we don't have employees on the floor.

    Pros

    Great training
    Good benefits
    Fulltime hours
    Being informed about business
    Knowing regular customers
    Ongoing training
    In company promotion
    Great quality clothing
    Management bonuses

    Cons

    Not enough hours for the store
    Tons of replen with no hours
    The whole Gymboree listens is a crock. Customers know exactly how to use it against you so they will get their way. DMs urge us to do anything to avoid getting a red flag. So there's no point to having any policies!
    Got a 10 cent raise
    Paperwork
    Policies
    Markdowns, frequent and every store has different prices

    Advice to Management

    Try to work alone! And make customers happy! Try having a shopper while you're alone with ten people and there's multiple customers being needy. I love to service people but doing it alone is impossible. And doing new long in 8 hours. That's a joke. Give hours for markdowns and replen instead of just stealing them from selling hours.
