I do love the Health insurance! I just wish my premiums wouldn't go up each year. I had to drop my husband this year as my pay hasn't gone up enough to compensate. Hoping this year is a bit better. There could be more realistic ways to earn bonus. It is hard when there are so many factors going towards not making sales plan. Just feels like a carrot dangling. If we had more payroll we could hire more people and run the store over all more efficiently. Until that happens nothing will ever run as smooth. They still want store managers to deliver so much in so little time. I miss the days when we were Salary. There was less micromanagement and my stress level wasn't as near as crazy.
The absolute worst was getting no benefits, but they expected you to work like a dog everyday all day. And more than likely you would be working by yourself with no lunch or bathroom break
You don’t get any benefits, so that’s the absolute worst. They work you all day, but you don’t get full time nor benefits. Not a good company in my opinion
Dental and vision insurance is really good, it's cheap (under $5 a paycheck for you), good coverage, and you can add your spouse for only a couple of dollars extra. You get 401k with matching - a benefits advisor comes by every once in a while so you can attend a meeting about it or have a 1 on 1 about your savings. On-site yoga (but with the workload it's very hard to find time to go). Health insurance is pretty bad (choice of Kaiser and Blue Cross.) All health plans require a bi-weekly premium and have a deductible ($70/2week plans have $1k+ deductible, $20/2week plans have $4k+ deductible.) Very high costs to add a spouse to your insurance. You can select to get HSA if you have high deductible, or FSA with other plans. You get free (limited amount) life insurance, you can sign up for extra life insurance, accident insurance. You get discounted auto insurance and pet insurance, but they're both really bad (you can get cheaper prices without Gymboree group discount) Tickets at work, good discounts on shows and amusement parks. Pre-tax commuter benefits. Really bad website/system to set it up though, if you're not careful you can lose out on money you put aside on your commuter debit card (it's non refundable.) In office coffee machines are Keurigs with off brand k-cups that are gross. Only 1 floor has cream/milk (and it runs out a lot) You get a employee discount, but if you don't have kids, it's useless. Sample sales happen often, you can get really cheap clothes in good condition (and bring your friends/family to the HUGE annual sale) You get 4 half day fridays in the summer (you pick which ones.) One paid company volunteer day - this is really nice, you pick where you want to volunteer, go with a group and spend the day helping out. There are also toy/gift/money holiday drives - it would be good if there was a pre-tax charity donation option vs cash. You can work from home one day a week (usually, depending on department/workload) No work on major holidays. You get Flexible Time Off with accumulates over time, and you use that for your time off and sick days. Direct deposit.
Gymboree offers NO vacation, PTO, or any other paid time off to their part-time employees. Depending on who your manager is, you might be lucky to get a week long vacation. I am also pretty sure part-timers are not offered any kind of benefits.
401K, FTO rates are decent when hired previous to 2011
I did not received any benefits because I was part-time. The only benefit I had was the employee discount.
FTO hours were earned by all full time employees, with the rate determined by tenure. Health and life insurance premiums were too high compared to the protection received.
Vacation and time off are average compared to other companies. Health insurance is terrible, especially if you have dependents. Not very family friendly for a company that’s all about children.
You get an employee discount
