I worked at Harry and David part-time (more than an year)

Pros

The company has its fair share of pros. These include a friendly work environment, access to opportunity, and flexibility. As well as outstanding and pleasant co-workers and in-store managers. When issues arise proper action is taken and when employees go beyond expectation, the company does take notice.

Cons

It would seem part-time employees have a difficult time getting more than 15 hours in a week. Furthermore, it can be difficult to be heard by the company as an employee (that is, it seems that employee suggestions can go by the wayside).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer more in the way of hours.

    Pros

    Loved the customers and fellow employees. Great signature products. Working at store level was cooperative and fun. Manager worked with your schedule.

    Cons

    Seem to be closing more and more stores, without opening any. Gone from about 125 down to 50 during my time. Reasons would be at corporate level. Many reviews have already covered the company problems and corporate management and I agree 100%. No raises and only 1 review for 4 years. District Mgr never visited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need new blood. It would be nice if you would value your own employees. CEO visited store before closing and acted concern about closing... He said all the "right things" to keep us quiet while visiting, but then never followed up. Consider him a liar!
