one month of paperwork before hours are scheduled
merchandiser (Current Employee), Northern MichiganJune 25, 2013
Cons: if you need employment with immediate hours to earn a living, then this is not the company to sign with.
No Typical day at work because the company extended an offer to me on May 28th. Filled out paperwork on June 4th. Received employee number on June 14th and have still yet to be trained or offered opportunity to get out in the stores and receive any training whatsoever!!!!!!

Great to work on your own
Part Time Merchandiser (Former Employee), Long Beach, CAJune 20, 2013
It's great to have so much freedom since you're basically working on your own. You talk to people at the locations where you stock cards, but other than that it's all you. It's kind of good with a college schedule because you can go in whenever the store is open. However, it's hard to do anything around holidays because you have to change giant sections – more... of cards the day after. – less

Great Intern experience
Area Supervisor Intern (Former Employee), CAJune 19, 2013
On a typical day we would use technical field reports to map the territory to train merchandisers. Excel spreadsheets allowed me to easily identify those that were not preforming and address possible problems with a solution. The most enjoyable about the job was the interaction with the merchandisers and the willingness to improve business practices – more... with metrics. – less

As a marketing intern learning I had to learn their business practices
Intern - Store Designer/Marketing Analyst (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHJune 13, 2013
Pros: good discounts on merchandise
Cons: had to return to school
Conducted store analysis on card placement and client demographics.
Learned that great "grass-roots" sellers know their clients and what sells.
Management team was good and smart
Hardest part of the job was to be able to have a discussion with the sellers because they were very busy.

Great work enviroment and co-workers, company is lame
CREW COORDINATOR (Former Employee), DFWJune 7, 2013
Pros: travel alot, if you like to travel.
Cons: travel can get tiresome. no healthcare even though there's, disgusting dumpster diving involved sometimes, when vendors throw our parts away.
Company will throw long time workers under the bus or out the door if it starts costing them too much. (man works there 20+ years, resigns. Actually no, company fires him, he cannot collect pension. This is just purely an example...) I worked with my friends and my boss was great. Highly understandable and motivates. Pay was not great and schedule was – more... highly sporadic. Perfect for summer job or students. – less

My first job
Floor Supervisor (Former Employee), Chesapeake, VAMay 29, 2013
I worked at American Greetings during my 4 years of college, They were really great about working around my schedule. Most of the time, I worked the night shift. I usually worked around 15-25 hours per week. Typically, I would assist customers in finding certain products and set various displays. At the end of my shift, I would pull the sales data and – more... prepare the night deposit bag to be taken to the bank the following morning. I didn't really find this job to be difficult. The best part of the job was helping customers find the "perfect gift." – less
