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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great employee discount, got to learn a new trade (engraving)

    Cons

    You work by yourself, no communication between yourself and upper management, company policy brings down the company

    Advice to Management

    Stop allowing people to work alone for long periods of time! Communicate with the stores and don’t allow people to get new product when THEY make a mistake. That’s how the company will fail.
