I worked at Gymboree as a contractor (more than 3 years)

Pros

40% discount on personal purchases
50% off discount several times a year
20-30% discount from Sister company Crazy 8 and Janie & Jack.
You can help other stores to make more hours if you are a good worker.

Cons

You do get snobby customers who think they are rich or wealthy because they can afford to purchase Gymboree.
Gymbucks redemption time gets crazy.
Smell of soiled diapers and kids running around the store.
Kids TV is on all day but you do learn to block if out.
Many shoplifters love this place, many shop lifters are moms stashing accessories under their strollers.
Don't be surprised to get 2 hours a week on slow months or be on call all week.
New store set ups monthly are terrible.
You will most likely get more hours on these days because the work load is so overwhelming but be prepared to clock past midnight.
Many management changes constantly.
Yearly reviews only help to give you a 12 cent raise.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They will rather promote from outside the company than see the true potential of their own staff.
Most of them do not lead by example and do leave you alone in the store when they are not supposed to.
