I maintain the greeting card department in various store locations.
Part Time Merchandiser (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCAugust 24, 2015
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: no insurance, not full time
Flexible hours are awesome and allow me to be involved in my children's extra curricular activities. I am able to work by myself with my manager visiting every so often. A typical day includes cleaning the card department (getting rid of trash and straightening cards). After cleaning, I put out everyday orders or change out endcaps for the next group of cards. There is also times when I take out old cards, scan them out and put out new cards. It is a very detail oriented job and I have to pay attention to each card. The hardest part of this job is picking up boxes of cards because the boxes are heavy. The most enjoyable part is the flexibility. To be able to come and go as you please is quite exciting. What I do not like is the fact that the job is not consistent. It is feast or famine in terms of how many hours I work. I do like the job, but I am looking for something that is more consistent.

Productive and fun workplace
Revision Helper (Current Employee), Billings, MTAugust 19, 2015
Pros: Hotel rooms are paid for by the company, paid travel time, and given per diem for meals.
Cons: No benefits--no healthcare, no dental, and no vision; no retirement 401(K)
The best part is getting to work with fun co-workers who make the time go by faster than it actually is. We take apart and put together new card fixtures, as well as stock card products, for stores all over Montana and Cody, Wyoming. Some of the fixtures can be pretty heavy, but that is why we have to be able to lift 50+ pounds when applying for American Greetings. We do have to travel a lot and stay in hotels, but that is kind of a plus. We are able to go to towns that we have never heard of before and experience new places, cultures, and people. It all comes down to the job being a lot of hard work, but with the right motivation and great teamwork we are able to accomplish what needs to be done in a timely manner.

mercandiser (Former Employee), Philadelphia paAugust 18, 2015
Pros: Great people to work for and with!
Cons: no crons
A great part time job! For people who just want to get out of the house and make friends. Not for money! It's great you go into other stores. It's a lot of movement up and down. Caring boxes. You will meet a lot of people. You work by yourself.

American Greetings was challenging but very rewarding. Learn a great deal while with the company. Hardest part of the job was leaving to take another job as they are moving the corporate headquarters.

Company as a whole is a great place to work, Customer Service department has limited freedom
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Cleveland, OHAugust 12, 2015
Cons: No down time
Typical day at work is 8 1/2 hrs. Two paid 15 minute breaks, 1 30 minute lunch. From 9pm to 5pm telephones are on, you are expected to be in your seat performing job duties.

Learned how to work with customers on a daily basis.

Management is accommodating, co-workers are great.

Hardest part of the job is dealing with difficulty and disgruntled customers day in and day out.

Most enjoyable part of the job is co-workers.

It was ok
Part Time Merchandiser (Former Employee), newingtonAugust 6, 2015
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: pay
I t was a lot of work for the money. Customers really mess up the cards even when your right there. The manager expected you to treat the job as a full time job. I had a full time job and was just looking for extra money. Holidays are harder because you have to work around crowds of people. It was a never ending battle to keep the cards neat.

Good company to be a part of, very flexible.
Merchandiser (Current Employee), Cleveland, OHJuly 10, 2015
American Greetings is a good company to be a part of. Your work schedule is very flexible. One downfall is no benefits are offered to part-time employees. Another downfall is it is very hard to move up to other positions.

Inventory Specialist (Former Employee), Fayetteville, NCJuly 7, 2015
You are scheduled your own set of stores and still have to help other locals with theirs. American Greetings is just cards, right? No there is a particular method to everything and its so annoying. The people that I worked with were all crazy. If you are lucky to have a good team it could be okay. You don't get paid enough for all you have to do and that sucks because it is a lot. Our head director never answers or returns messages because he is just ughhhh.

Merchandiser (Current Employee), Harrisonburg VaJune 30, 2015
Pros: making your own work time
Cons: its not alot of hours
I have work weeks where I can choose when I go in to work.
I clean up the empty cards fill empty slots check stock room for boxes and easily put up cards and other products.
I enjoy the calmness of the job and enjoy working with the store employees and there customers.
The hardest part was learning how to use the scanner but it was really easy to learn just over weliming at first but in just two months I have learned my own way and its easy as can be.
