    Pros

    Decent rate of pay. If you love to live at your store, this is the best career move for you.

    Cons

    Way to many to list!

    The most antiquated POS systems and cumbersome to use, typically takes around 10 mins per transaction as long as the systems DONT crash!

    When contacting corporate, expecting to get a resolution and all you get is an idiot with an attitude on the other end.

    Nothing here is done electronically including the hand written schedules. Come on lets get with the times. Good luck with keeping a visually pleasings store due to the amount of new product they allocate to you. Have never worked for a company that has a floorset so frequently. The payroll, lets not even go there, this company views the Store Manager position as "most accountable slave in the store" Upper Management is so set in there ways about procedures, that are proven time and again yo be very ineffective. I wish somebody would have wrote a review like this, before I pulled the trigger with this Company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Omg listen to your field Management, the are on the front lines and will tell you what works and what doesn't! If you want yo be taken seriously as a leading child retailer, then start acting like it!!!!! Set your stores up for success!!!!!

    Pros

    Gymboree is a really relaxed place to work: jeans and a comfy sweater and you're set! Plus getting to interact with the kids is always fun. They really light up when you hand them their stickers :)

    Cons

    It's never extremely busy here... A lot of tasking has to be done, and it's really just tedious work. While I agree that it's good to have full shelves, making it so full that people can't really look through the racks is just poor service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it more organized! Especially the smaller stores that don't have the same space as the larger ones.
