I worked at American Greetings part-time (More than a year)

Pros

It is a good job, mostly no supervision.

Cons

Company has cut hours so much you have to work off the clock alot to keep up. :/

Advice to Management

Instead of watching the numbers, help your employees by giving them enough time to get the work done, like it was 2 yrs ago & you won't have as much turn over.

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

    Pros

    flexible hours, on your own, and if you love organization then this is the place for that. if you need more time with your family then this is a great place. it gives you that flexibility.

    Cons

    not enough time, team leaders are very conspiratorial and backstabbing, and if they don't like you they find ways to take you out of your stores. some of the area supervisors have this attitude that they know it all. they have some form of a click together. they are very demanding for such small pay and no hours. it's a shame that this company is the most wasteful company ever. they throw too much product away instead of reusing it or dropping the price down. i don't agree with throwing product out. i agree with reselling it for a smaller price or reusing the product for next year or taking it to a 99 cent store for reduction and still get a tax write off for it.

    Advice to Management

    why don't you find better ways to give more hours to the vendors, and hire more empathetic area supervisors. how about stop throwing product away and give only what is needed in the store. don't waste product. makes me sick! figure out how to get your tax write off without throwing product away!
