    I worked at Kirkland's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly faces, fun projects, discount and all the events.

    Cons

    Lack of good management, nowhere to go once you're in, low pay for the hard work done by employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to notice all the hard work your team members are doing. Not feeling appreciated or valued played a huge part in why I left. Otherwise, I would still be with the company. I miss Kirkland's and what it used to be.

    Great company to work for, everything is done by the book, the store manager is amazing at my location, and you get to work with beautiful home items everyday

    Pros

    I have enjoyed working at Kirkland's for the past year while I was in school and after graduation I was able to come back. Management is awesome and helpful.

    Cons

    The push to get customers to enroll in company programs like the credit card or email system. It's quite annoying if you get questioned every night as to why the enrollment rate is low.

    I have been working at Kirkland's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible, staff is nice and helpful. Not a career just a pit stop.

    Cons

    Too much work for the low pay. Micromanagement, reviews are ridiculous for the type of job. Plus, bigotry and subjective, in training. Not enough good help with likemindedness.

    Advice to Management

    Be grateful for good help. Stop micromanaging and complain about your hours. Chip in instead of always ordering people around. Lead by example.
