I have been working at Gymboree as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

-Free coffee, cappuccinos, tea, soft drinks (but nothing compared to what tech employees get)

Cons

-Antiquated technologies (old PCs and software -- we still use internet explorer 7)
-Too much paper waste. I feel like were killing a small forest every week.
-No training. This is an individual case. My manager barely spent time training me with the processes and operations. There is no cooperate orientation for contract workers, which makes no sense in terms of on boarding and efficiency.

    I worked at Gymboree full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Worked in a good location, clothing.

    Cons

    Management treats you poorly. Using usually working alone and can't anything and pay even Manager like runaway slaves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to give world-class service and have low turnover and theft then pay your people a decent wage, do not treat them like they don't matter... Give them lunches and break so you do not GET ANOTHER class-action lawsuit. Spend hours on payroll to make sure people aren't working off the clock or before and after hours. WOW!!
