I worked at Calendar Holdings full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I learned about the retail model really fast. There is also the ability to fail, went into the franchise without the idea that I would be spoon fed. That said, the franchise receives a POS, signage and all of the stock, everything to start, with the franchise.

Cons

There will be some hidden costs, that you will have to absorb. Electricity, Phone, Insurance, Permits, Inspections... employees not coming in to open the store. This is best run by a family and not strangers.

Advice to Management

I would suggest themed product lines to offer independent video game stores. Nintendo, Disney, figures and toys to go with the video games and help them fill out their store. You can even consign them, and they will gladly help in order to fill their store with appealing products.

    I have been working at Calendar Holdings part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    work independently, have a voice in the running of the store, nice upper management

    Cons

    Directions are not always clear, seasonal work only

    Advice to Management

    Store management is good. To upper management-make directions more clear. Employees are building the business from scratch each season and should have very clear instructions and support.


  2. "It was a laid back and welcoming work environment."

    Pros

    Easy place to work with laid back managers.

    Cons

    Usually only one person working at time, so you have to use the restroom before your shift.
