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

Pros

Engraving is really fun. If you're good at selling stuff than you'll love this place.

Cons

EXTREMELY pushy sales tactics, Single shifts (Sell & Engrave), No advancement.

Advice to Management

The company is crazy for raising the cost of engraving. The company pushes you to sell so many things to customers in one transaction. Every sale you're suppose to offer a premium font, a design, a flashlight, and rewards card. Engraving is $3, a premium font is $5. Designs usually ranged from $6 to $9, a rewards card is $10 and flashlight is $15.

    I have been working at Things Remembered part-time

    Pros

    Extra money in my pocket

    Cons

    The ADP card is a rip off for seasonal workers, I am not using it until I find a new job and take my saved money out
    My manager jumps the gun on write ups for sales, not bad work ethic.
    I went in with previous retail experience and am still only getting minimun wage.
    No set breaks, HATE misleading customers, somehow scheduling is always messed up

    Advice to Management

    Seasonal workers are still employees. Managers may love their jobs, but sales associates do not

    Pros

    Most of the people were nice to work with. They didn't demand much of you except for good customer servie.

    Pay wasn't good. Not many hours, really slow unless it's Christmas season. The job become boring because there wasn't a lot to do.
