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

Pros

Working with kids is always fun, and my coworkers were awesome. We always had a lot of fun at work, which is a huge plus. I just wish I had actually worked there a decent amount of hours each week.

Cons

I had terrible hours and I wasn't the only one, as most of my coworkers were in the same boat. There is also a lack of proper training in sales tactics, yet management is always pushing for more and more sales, even though most people don't want to spend an arm and a leg on clothes for their kids.

Advice to Management

Training in how best to talk to customers about the products and how to drive more sales would be highly beneficial for sales associates, most of whom are young and inexperienced in sales positions like this one. Working in a mall is difficult, so training and practice in figuring out how to best serve customers in that environment is key.
