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

    Pros

    Easy job for a hard working individual, face paced, and steady work. Training was proficient and you learn as you go.

    Cons

    Lack of pay, and at the time poor representation of District Management. After being with the company after a year, asked for a raise and was walked outside, shown the company sign, and was asked if it was my name up there.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to speak to people beneath you without making them feel replaceable and maybe your team would stick around.

    "Store location closing"

    Star Star Star Star Star

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Things Remembered (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    flexible work schedule during nonpeak times.

    Cons

    Was with Things Remembered as a manager for 34 years. My store location was closed. I did not get anything from the company upon leaving, did not get a severance. Got absolutely nothing for my 34 years of dedicated service. This is not the way a good company shows recognition and their appreciation for so many years!

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your longtime dedicated employees!
