I worked at Gymboree as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

People are very nice, scheduling is very flexible, management is very open to suggestions and having conversations, and pay is on the higher end

Cons

Lots of cross-functional coordination makes things difficult sometimes, in general things have to touch many sets of hands for any process, hours can sometimes be a little long and not well regulated

Advice to Management

Check-in with employees to make sure they're not feeling overwhelmed

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

    Pros

    The family friendly atmosphere is what makes our customers let us be a part of their family. I've seen families at their best moments (birth of first child) to the absolute worst (stillborn baby) and have celebrated and grieved with all of them. If you TRULY love children and connecting with other people but also have the retail bug, then this company is for you. That doesn't mean it's play time all the time though. It takes a lot of hard work and often on your own due to payroll constraints. As for growth, things are always changing so you never know what opportunity will land in your lap.

    Cons

    Payroll for sales floor coverage
