    Pros

    Excellent training. Independent work. Flexible hours. Easy to learn and use hand held computer device. Guidance beyond initial training readily available via Crown Connect device and Territory Supervisor. It's fun to put new merchandise out and then watch it go out the door through sales. Very rewarding to leave department looking clean and organized.

    Cons

    It can get a bit hectic around holiday times, but that's true of all retail work. The number of hours budgeted by management is low and unrealistic to keep departments in tip top shape and organized. Hourly pay is low.

    Advice to Management

    Be more generous with budgeted hours. A raise in pay might be a good idea.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, freedom to choose hours, pretty easy work for the most part; totally work unsupervised. They put you in stores close to home. No phones, no stress, don't really have to work with the customers.

    Cons

    Never see a co-worker, my supervisor is hard to get a hold of. Putting up the different seasons is confusing. Couldn't get more hours/stores even asking for more work. Listening to supermarket music all the time is a drag! Only ever PT.

    Advice to Management

    Check in with your RM's more often.

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

    Pros

    The customers... plain and simple. They are loyal... treat you like part of the family! The products sell themselves, but it is the customers that come in to share a moment in their lives with us, and we truly built amazing relationships. I only left due to relocation to a different state to be closer to family and did not have the opportunity to transfer but would go back if ever given a chance

    Cons

    Corporate was tough on payroll and made it almost impossible to run stores. Micro-management by DM's made an uncomfortable work environment at times. No work/life balance... tough to ever get a day off as manager.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management: You hire us Store Managers to run the stores... so let us! The constant phone calls and emails keep us from our salesfloors and our customers. Give us what we need to run the stores.

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

    Pros

    It is a flexible work schedule

    Cons

    Low pay, very few hours until the holidays and then overwhelming work during holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Way more is expected of the merchandiser than is compensated for. There isn't enough room for advancement. The core merchandise rarely changes and needs serious updating. Pay is way to low for the work involved. Only plus side is it's flexible and my particular area manager was awesome. Holidays are a nightmare, so much product to get out in such a short time with no extra help.
