    I have been working at Hallmark part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work alone. Schedule is somewhat flexible. I work an average of 3 days a week, mostly in the mornings and sometimes into the early afternoon. Weekend and evening work is rare, but is sometimes necessary during seasonal changeovers. Paid on time.

    Cons

    Hourly wage could be better, especially when store visits are short and not worth the drive to get there. Not suitable for individuals who need consistent hours and income. Lots of lifting when big shipments come in. Sometimes the allotted store service time is barely enough for all the work that has to be done.

    Advice to Management

    So far, it appears that corporate does care about what RM's think, as I hear they are working on improvements. RM's need bigger and better hand held devices asap so we can actually see/read better. I have a good manager and territory supervisor/trainer, so no complaints there.

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

    Pros

    Great people! I feel my work plays a significant role in the success of the company.

    Cons

    The workforce is aging, and a lot of knowledge will be walking out of the door in the coming years through retirements. The company needs to work harder to retain that knowledge.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Hallmark full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Sense of family in teams.
    Passionate people.
    Caring teammates.

    Cons

    Spotty team work across teams.
    Leadership should communicate with each other more to be closely aligned in message and stance.
    A lot of politics and being "thrown under the bus" as you grow into leadership roles
    Internal adversity between teams and team leads, no teamwork.
    In such a small company there is a big rift between leadership and the rest of the workers.
    The pay is below average by a bit in the MSP market.
    401k match is garbage.
    Healthcare benefits are expensive and not the best.
    Zero paternity leave, minimal maternity.
    KC vs Minneapolis benefits are 100% different.
    Career progression is limited due to lack of overall growth.
    Directions do not align with revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the "grunts." There is value in this insight. There are a lot of very passionate people who would like to be involved in where HBC is going
