    Pros

    The DM's are so different. My attitude and stress level fluctuate every time they change my boss. Some are helpful, some are very overbearing, and others are down right useless.

    Cons

    We sometimes get micro-managed to death. They always say they want to simplify things for us, then come out with some new form we have to fill out everyday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better method for selecting DM's and do a better job managing and coaching them.

    I worked at Things Remembered full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Learning how to engrave on many different metals aswell as glass
    Learn selling skills
    Learning to deal with unhappy or unwilling customers

    Cons

    Sales goals are rediculous for not being paid anything but hourly.
    Practically forced to work after hours to get work done as they only have one persons in a small store to sell and engrave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees commission for their sales efforts.
    You will actually have workers willing to put in effort to all the old women.
