    Pros

    Fun place, keeps you busy, customers are sweet.

    Cons

    Very strict, low pay, no room for error really, make you cover your tattoos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I only worked here for 3 days before being let go because I wasn't a perfect fit. I made a few mistakes but who doesn't especially when they are new? It's a nice company but give your employees more chances. No one is perfect. We are humans and mistakes are going to happen no matter who you are. Ridiculous.

    I worked at Hallmark part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about the job was working on my own schedule. It's easy work.

    Cons

    The company is taking away the ability to work on your own schedule. No benefits. Tiny raises if you are lucky enough to even get a raise at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to value the employees out in the field. Ask for their input before making changes. Train your supervisors not to talk down to us.

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

    Pros

    Great part-time job! Relaxed environment and fun people! Discounts on most items. Flexible hours. Makes a great first job or something to do on the side.

    Cons

    The hectic holiday hours and customers. The pay isn't as good as some other jobs. When dealing with the public some customers are great and some are a bit of a handful; I do not fault Hallmark for this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees. The better you treat your employees the less likely you are to have high turnover. If the employee knows the product well they're worth the extra time and money!

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

    Pros

    Best parts of this job are the people and the relationships built; immediate supervisor, Retail Merchandisers and the accounts we service. The tasks of the job are enjoyable and easy to perform, once the process is understood.

    Cons

    Although this is a Part-time position, with part-time pay and no benefits, full-time schedule availability is expected. Conflicting Corporate priorities and direction create issues in the field which then require extra time and effort to correct, with no additional consideration allowed within budgets to correct.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly value the part of your Field Service Organization which is at the service delivery point. We have worked hard to be professional representatives of Hallmark for low pay and no benefits. We have built excellent relationships with your accounts, followed all your directives and struggled to do all of this inside of tightening time budgets. The most recent changes have left some top quality merchandisers in RMA positions or with no position at all, while some mediocre or struggling RMs have full or overloaded account lists. Hallmark will certainly survive and go on without us. But it is clear you do not value us or the quality of our work.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, lots of opportunities to move within the company.

    Cons

    A company looking for the next big idea outside the card business. Lack of direction and vision but the family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up to doing business in the 21st century. Inspire and leverage the in house talent to maximize opportunities in today's world.
