I worked at American Greetings full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great people to work with, once the longevity was outstanding. They will be moving into a new corporate camous in the next couple of years that will provide a much better work location.

Cons

The workloads are heavy and there is little support. You will learn by doing, not by training. You will become a self started if you wish to succeed. The work force will continue to face downsizing.

Advice to Management

you are out of touch with the true feelings and needs of the employees. The direction and the needs of the employees do not meet. The number of current employees activly looking for work elsewhere will be a shock to you.

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

    Pros

    It was a nice company to work for at the begining.

    Cons

    The company was not giving enough work hours. There is no communication between the supervisors and workers in the Pittsburgh, PA area. When a problem arises nothing seems to be done about it. The supervisor never shows up when is suppose to. The pay and advancement is poor.

    Advice to Management

    To train supervisors with more of an emphasis on people skills.
