    -nice merchandiser training vids

    Cons

    -wasteful with product
    -high turnover in management
    -not great pay and hard rushed work

    Advice to Management

    -pay attention to who is working hard and realize that things can't always get done in the time given. Even by the best and fastest merchandisers. Improve on the training once someone is promoted. Don't just throw them into position and expect them to know everything.

    I have been working at American Greetings full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Ability to move between disciplines and learn/experience new skills. American Greetings does not limit you to your current discipline but will allow operations to move into finance, finance into sales etc.

    Cons

    Constant work force reduction eliminating career opportunities. Greeting Cards is a mature industry requiring the company to closely monitor costs and reduce. Most of those reductions come though head count reduction which has reached a level it has almost the best part of the company, the ability to move between jobs and gain experience.
