    I worked at Hallmark part-time

    Pros

    Nice employees, always something to do, great customer base so generally you have pleasant interactions. Also, you have to stay on your toes because you never know what occasion brought someone into the store.

    Cons

    Management changed frequently. When we did have a store manager you can tell that she was tremendously stressed and put pressure on her Key holders which didn't make for a pleasant environment.

    Advice to Management

    Manage more efficiently and be careful who you give power to when you're away. Trust some of your other employees

    I have been working at Hallmark part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Set own hours, work on your own, great to help customers find just the right card; I am retired and don't need any benefits

    Cons

    gets hectic around holidays, shelves can be too tall---have to take a stepstool in to set display

    Advice to Management

    the more the RM is there, the more customer help is available----many people are bewildered by the choices and don't know where to find the right card

    Pros

    Hallmark is a great company to work for. As a part time Retail Merchandiser, it is a fun job to represent Hallmark and make it a great shopping experience for the customers.

    Cons

    Working longer hours during the holidays and the day before and the day after each major holiday is not for everyone.

    I have been working at Hallmark part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Like the store I am working in, love most of my co-workers.

    Cons

    too much responsibility and not enough pay!! It is sad to see 3 coporate Stores and 2 individually owned Stores not communicating at all. I've been working there for about a year and a half and only once have I seen the stores collaborating on anything. I think if a few stores close to each other came together on some things, sales would be more productive. As far as corporate, they are only concerned about Kansas City, and the big city's. We have anot assistant manager that has been therefor 15 years. She is putting two kids through college and has health insurance through the company. Two weeks ago the district manager came and took her to lunch tor her know as of October she no longer has her assistant manager position , because there are cutting the positions all over the US. Except for Kansas City (of course) and a few other Cities. But they were being so generous to offer her a part time position. Which in details no benefits, and half the hours. Wow 15 years invested in a company and that's what you get in the end.

    I have been working at Hallmark full-time

    Pros

    If you're an artist or writer you get paid well with benefits for your creative content.

    Cons

    The greeting card market's continuing to shrink.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your core customers' tastes, not your own or those of everyone who works as an artist or manager in your company.
