I enjoy this kind of work and the flexibility.

Current Employee - Merchandiser in Gulf Breeze, FL

I have been working at Hallmark part-time for more than a year

Pros

Working alone most of the time.
Set your own schedule within assigned parameters.
Meeting employees of the various stores you service.

Cons

Not enough hours given to complete all of the work.
Having to constantly pester store management for things.
Lots of revisions that may not actually be needed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give merchandisers more hours, submit requests to store managers directly from the corporate office - make it a part of their evaluation or something, and perhaps slow down on the revisions, those hours could go to the merchandiser instead so that they can keep the card department in tip top condition.

    I have been working at Hallmark full-time

    Pros

    Great people and family-like atmosphere. Pay and benefits tend to be comparable to other large employers. Flexibility allowed in work schedules, but varies per your manager. Very friendly company to women, minorities, and other diverse lifestyles.

    Cons

    Tends to be a paternalistic company that is very conservative in business. Not real innovative although they are trying to address that weakness. Print-on-paper businesses are declining in general. Trying to find their place in a digital world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't wait for the rest of the world to get on board with something before thinking there may be a good business opportunity. Figure out how to make money in the digital environment.

    I have been working at Hallmark full-time

    Pros

    Positive work environment, opportunities everywhere if you do a little digging. Treated fairly and with respect - feels like one big family. Creative community is amazing.

    Cons

    Company is having trouble adapting to the challenges of the modern world. Greeting cards aren't as popular as they used to be and other businesses move too fast for Hallmark to adapt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We can't keep doing the same thing while patting ourselves on the back for being innovative.
