I worked at Gymboree part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Well I worked my way up through gymboree. I was a sales associate and then became a Stock room manager which that title really doesn't exist but that is what I was called. Then I became an Assistant Manager at Crazy 8 (owned by gymboree). Pros for working for this company are that there is always room to grow. The people are great and its a fun environment.

Cons

Cons for working here are there is no full time for anyone except the store manager (very few stores have a full time assistant manager) and working part time you only get like tops 10 hours a week through most of the year now when Christmas season starts you might get more but they hire a few more people. The working 10 hours is for a sales associate a manager part time would get about 30+ hours maybe a little less like 25.

    Pros

    There is a 40% employee discount

    Cons

    terrible company to work for. Safety of employees is not a priority. The company is willing to take chances with employee safety to make more money.


  2. "don't do it if you have other opportunity"

    I have been working at Gymboree full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - cute little kids
    -great workers

    Cons

    -absolutely no supports from DM nor company
    -they want you work for free if you are store manager
    - no balance between work and life
    - high expectations with unrealistic goals

    Advice to Management

    try to work in store level once a while and see the goals that you are given to the store are realistic , because the way you treat the employee there wouldn't be any loyalty
