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

    Pros

    Great discount
    Decent pay for a mall job
    Great people
    Engraving was a cool skill to learn

    Cons

    Lots of single coverage shifts
    Unrealistic sales goals
    Having to push a $10 rewards membership
    Pay isn’t enough for all of the issues you end up having to deal with in one shift, I was doing manager work but wasn’t getting paid like one.

    Advice to Management

    Schedule at least two people at any given time so one person doesn’t end up swamped with both sales and engraving.

    Pros

    Clear training to get you started. Fast promoting if you work hard and want to advance in the company.

    Cons

    Work life balance. Sometimes single coverage which made taking a break not possible. Have worked until 1 AM engraving products.

    Advice to Management

    Have a minimum of two people working at all times not just at peak hours.
