I worked at American Greetings part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

a supportive area supervisor, good training, and schedule flexibility.

Cons

The one thing I disliked most about working for AG was how much paper was being thrown away--by my hand. After major holidays like Christmas and Easter, there was always a heavy amount of cards still left to be sold. Instead of donating the cards, or sending them off to be either recycled or reused the following year, I was told by my supervisor that they all needed to go in the trash. After several years of this, I could no longer take the blatant disregard for environmental responsibility.

I think it is safe to say if there was a method in place for excess cards, I would still be working with AG.

Advice to Management

please do something about the amount of seasonal cards you send. Also, try more eco-friendly approaches to excess card disposal.

    "Drama workplace"

    Pros

    Easy work. There are good people to work with who have been there for years.

    Cons

    Hot inside building. Supervisors do not listen or help when there is a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers. Get the drama out of the workplace. Happy workers means more production.

    I worked at American Greetings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    AG store and Starbucks in the building

    Cons

    Negative environment. Hard to move internally. Never met the CEO or any other executive member in my 4 years there. Very disconnected from employees. Little fish in a big pond atmosphere.
