Friendly environment, good place to work. Company is focused on creating "Happiness, Laughter, and Love" and their culture reflects this focus - particularly within the Creative, Marketing, and Product Management sides of the business.

It is not all that bad, you just have to stay to yourself. It's too much drama that goes on out there. Supervisors don't try to help with a problem or situation that you have going on. They show too much favoritism!!!
forklift operator (Former Employee) – Osceola, AR – April 18, 2017
This was a great job. To want to get up and go do your job with the people you work with is a special gift. Being a power truck driver I was able to help keep the other workers with the materials they needed to complete their daily jobs.
Merchandiser duties in the Portsmouth, NH area (Former Employee) – Portsmouth, NH – April 17, 2017
Head to first store, do a walk through of the card racks and pull tickets for restocking. Go out back and bring whatever products in my inventory out to the floor and set them up. Record everything done, clean up and head to the next store. Sometimes up to 4 stores
Total freedom. work hours/days you want as long s it's within the individual stores policy.
Order Filler (Former Employee) – Danville, KY – April 14, 2017
favoritism You had to be family to advance. If you had family high up you could get away with breaking the rule. Management would break rules for some people and then fire someone else for doing the same thing.
Absolutely loved working at American Greetings. The associates are all very friendly and willing to help one another; the atmosphere is definitely that of a team oriented business. The work life balance is incredible at American Greetings. If you need to leave early one day for any reason, you will likely be approved as long as you are making up those hours throughout the week, are getting all of your work done, and are appropriately approaching your manager for approval. Highly recommend working at American Greetings!
Customer Support Agent (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – March 30, 2017
I feel that American Greetings really reaches out to their consumers at a personal level. At American Greetings, there is a friendly, encouraging, working environment. This experience will greatly help with my people skills for my future endeavors.
Friendly atmosphere, Learning experience, Down to earth office setting.
Short breaks, only temporary employment for several candidates.
The best part of the job is working a flexible schedule. Weekly hours are set for you, but you can make it fit your time availability. It can be a very quiet job because you have little interaction with the store employees. You go into your accounts, make the store personnel aware that you are there, then proceed to the greeting card department to service it.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – March 24, 2017
This was a good merchanding job with flexible hours but the compensation was poor. It was an enjoyable job that you could do independently and you only had to be their certain times, such as during the holidays. I performed the job very fast so I did not need all of the hours provided to me for the job.
Experience widely varies from state to state, store to store
PTM (Current Employee) – Boise, Idaho – March 22, 2017
I've been with this company about a year and worked in two different "territories" and had several different managers. When it comes to this job- it just depends what region you are working in and the manager you have. The experience is not that consistent from area to area. If you end up with a stickler as a manager you will NOT have a good time, as American Greetings corporate standards are extremely high and not reasonable for the amount of hours they give you. If you have a more relaxed and understanding boss it's great. I've had both experiences. The best part of the job is the flexibility. You can basically pick the days and hours you work and you can change it from week to week to fit your needs. For this reason it is an excellent second job or a good job for stay at home moms or retired folks. I normally work about only 5 or 6 hours a week in the off season and around the holidays it bumps up to 10 to 15. So FYI - this is in general a very low hours position. No benefits, PTO or anything like that but its VERY part time... They send you a birthday card and some random little gifts from time to time. As far as retail jobs, this is by far the best I have ever had. If you like working solo you will probably like it. Also, sometimes they pay you to take surveys and do training at home from your computer which is great.
Work independently, paid training at home on your computer, fun to see all the different cards & merchandise
