    I worked at Hallmark

    Pros

    Great atmosphere it was a happy place to come into work everyday and I love the product hat they offer.

    Cons

    Holiday season can get crazy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give incentives to having committed employees who have been loyal and good employees for a long time. They should get promotions and pay raises.

    I have been working at Hallmark

    Pros

    Love, love, love the hours and the ability to work without someone standing over you.

    Cons

    No new hires are trained on how to properly pocket cards - you don't just open a package and dump them in the assigned pocket - any monkey could do that. I was trained to always have all cards facing forward and have the flaps of the envelopes with fold to the left. Even my TA (who covered for me while I was on vacation) doesn't know how to pocket cards. I spent a great deal of time correcting her 'restocking' of my stores. Grrrr. Apparently Hallmark has figured this out and has created a trainer position. About time!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people actually doing the work.
