I worked at Hallmark full-time (More than 10 years)
Wonderfully caring company with an amazing Hall family at the helm. Generous to the Kansas City community. Profit sharing plan.
Manager would rather hire from outside the company vs. promote from within. Millennials are hired with poor work ethic (come in around 9am, leave around 3pm, long lunch or workout at the gym for two hours or take a non-work related nearby college class during work hours) and no company loyalty. Long-term employees are no longer valued.
Advice to Management
Quit eliminating positions that are still needed and quit hiring millennials who don't care about the company and who won't be there in five years.
I applied online. I interviewed at Hallmark.
The interview was pretty easy. They asked your average questions. Most communication was through email and responses were quick. There was one prescreen phone interview and another actual phone interview. Both lasted around 15 minutes.
