    I worked at Bronners CHRISTmas Wonderland part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This Company is run by the same family that started the store and they create a very loving and generous work environment for all the employees.
    Good pay rates.
    A great place to get a first job.

    Cons

    The continuous Christmas music can get annoying to some people but I didn't even notice it that much.
    The large crowds around the Holidays are a mixed bag to say the least, but in general the more people that are in the store, the more annoyed they will be by the time they reach the check out.

    Advice to Management

    The management at Bronners is some of the best I have ever seen and I don't actually know what they could be doing better.

    I have been working at Bronners CHRISTmas Wonderland part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Bronners respects that I am a working Mom. If there is an immediate issue at home, my management team is the first to offer help. I always feel comfortable discussing any issue that arises, either at work or home. Working hours are very flexible. Wages arent so great, but there are usually extra hours available during the busy season if we want them. Management is always accessible. If your own dept. manager is not available, someone, even Wayne Bronner, is there to listen. This is a Godly, family friendly, fun and wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    There are really no challenges. Bronners really cares about their employees! They employ approximately 800 people during peak season. Most are return employees that come back year after year. Because it is a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes change is a good thing.

    Pros

    There are alot of perks that make up for the minimum wage.
    Flexible and predictable schedule. During busy season, more hours if we want them.
    Time off when I need it.
    Moral is high. I think my coworkers enjoy working here as well! Great team spirit even between departments.
    Senior management and owners are present. We know who they are and we feel a part of the business.
    Opportunities for advancement are very good. If you put in the effort, you can go places in this company!
    They understand you have a family/personal life and work with you so you can enjoy work and personal life.
    Everyone's job is truely important. I have NEVER heard "I wouldn't want to do THAT job.", because it's considered a "peon" kind of job.

    Cons

    Most positions are seasonal, but this can also be a "pro"!

    Advice to Management

    I really enjoy working at Bronner's.
    We appreciate the thank you letter's at the end of the season, the goodies at break time all year and all the things you do to show appreciation. It keeps us motiviated. I look forward to coming back each year!
