Hallmark has very dedicated employees, but they have been managing the business the same way far too long.

I worked at Hallmark full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Hallmark has some wonderful people to work with. There is a decent level of job security, but that has started to get a little shakey. Good opportunites for advancement after a few years on the job.

Cons

Old guard had not been creative in improving how to better manage their day to day business. It has become a much more stressful place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You cannot move forward in a positive direction unless you are willing to let go of old tools and processes.

    I worked at Hallmark as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The companies overall attitude towards family is good (they even have a pumping room for nursing mothers). The department I worked in was very understanding about time off & had a family first attitude, which is hard to find!

    Cons

    I've heard completely the opposite about other departments attitudes towards flexibility from other employee's or former employees. So I think it everything can be quite different from department to department as it is a fairly large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Other opportunities should only be mentioned by management if its a sure thing. I can't tell you how many times I heard of a job opening while I was there & went through the rigorous process of applying only to find they decided it wasn't in there budget so they would be "making departmental changes" instead.

    I have been working at Hallmark part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interacting with customers is one of the best reasons to work at Hallmark. I personally enjoy helping the elderly with their needs.

    Cons

    We should offer more for men especially around Father's Day. When looking for a male gift it is hard to find much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes, specials could be more clearly displayed instead of the small print.
