I worked at Hallmark full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Decent pay, good working conditions while you're still employed.

Cons

Industry is shrinking, company is shrinking... thousands of layoffs in the past few years and many many more layoffs to come.

Advice to Management

Cut bait while you can... all at once. Close Enfield and the manufacturing plants left in the U.S. and get it over with. Hallmark will only ever be a shell of its former self.

    I worked at Hallmark part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Training is great, merchandising is a snap, and customer service is number one.

    Cons

    Holiday hours are terrible, you won't enjoy the season because you are always working.

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

    Pros

    Hallmark has some wonderful people to work with. There is a decent level of job security, but that has started to get a little shakey. Good opportunites for advancement after a few years on the job.

    Cons

    Old guard had not been creative in improving how to better manage their day to day business. It has become a much more stressful place to work.

    Advice to Management

    You cannot move forward in a positive direction unless you are willing to let go of old tools and processes.
