warehouse/ customer service (Former Employee), Deer Park, NYAugust 3, 2015
Pros: discounts on items
Cons: alot of heavy lifting
working at Christmas tree shops had been a decent experience , there is a lot of heavy lifting and takes a lot of team work to complete a task. People there were nice and liked to get the job done. kinda fast paste working there but as long as you have an energy drink the job will be excellent. I have been there seasonally employed for the winter, I also met a lot of cool friends there.

Friendly place to work
Customer Service Representative, Sales Associate (Former Employee), Taylor, MI 48101July 20, 2015
Pros: Friendly place, they work around your schedule, etc
Cons: short breaks and not enough hours
I very much enjoyed working at the Christmas Tree Shops. Only issue with the place was not getting enough hours. But overall, it is a great place to work.

A typical day at CTS, would be to greet each customer with a smile and ask how I could help, cover inventory and shipping and receiving as well as being a cashier on other days. Stocking and rotating was another part of my daily routine. I learned more about stock rotation and how to keep up with inventory. Management and coworkers were great, they made the place feel like home. We were one big family! There wasn't any hard part of the job, I can say that with confidence. Most enjoyable part was being around friendly people all day. They really brought up my spirits.

Stock Clerk (Former Employee), Paramus, NJJuly 10, 2015
I have learned different techniques on how to promote new products to customers, and the design of the store which I had to learn to better my abilities to arrange the merchandise on the displays. Management was easy to work with, as long as you did your job.

Christmas Tree Shops
Sales Associate (Seasonal) (Former Employee), Hoover, ALJune 24, 2015
A typical day at Christmas Tree Shops was pretty interesting and fun actually. I made myself everyday happy even though it was a seasonal job for me. My co-workers made sure I was doing the right thing and stay on task. They motivate me to finish a task. The most enjoyable of the job was helping customers to find what they need and being in contact with the customers.

CTS was a difficult job to work at. The management was hard and very one minded. They wanted people who were social with everyone to advance, then those who worked hard. I did meet amazing people and today I can still call them friends.

Meeting different cultures of people and enjoying the work atmosphere.
Customer Service (Former Employee), Augusta, GAMay 16, 2015
Pros: Discount on merchandise.
Cons: Nothing.
I enjoyed working at the Christmas Tree Shop because I met a diversity of different cultures of people. The atmosphere was exciting and the store had a lot of merchandise for every season. I would walk down one aisle and there was the Christmas merchandise and right across was the Thanksgiving merchandise. Can you imagine doing all of your shopping for every holiday and every season in one store? That's awesome!!! Only wish I had the opportunity to continue working at the Christmas Tree Shop, sad to say the job was only holiday employment. However, I was offered a job back at the Christmas Tree Shop during the holiday season and I was excited. There was no hard part to my job because the customers and my co-workers saw to it that I was comfortable during my employment there. It was a honor to have worked for a company that make their employees feel welcome and secured.

Cashier (Former Employee), Deptford, NJMay 15, 2015
I liked this job because it was a busy store and time flew by! Everybody was nice! Its a shame that I was only seasonal help. I would work here again if they hired me full time and more money. This would be a good job for college or high school students

Dishonest company. Middleboro, MA Call Center/Chat positions
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Middleboro, MAMay 14, 2015
Pros: 20% off in store purchases at BedBath Beyond, Christmas Tree Shops, BuyBuyBaby and Harmon.
Cons: Expensive Health insurance deductibles, micromanaged environment, misleading job positions.
They will hire for web/chat customer service from 3pm-12am with a 1 hour lunch and during the interview advise you that you may SOMETIMES help the call center.

When you show up for training it's FOR a call center position with a flex shift from either 3:00pm-11:30pm or 3:30pm-12am that changes weekly and you only get a 30 minute lunch and one 15 minute break.

They will tell you that you may go to chat EVENTUALLY once you learn the systems, but other seasoned representatives are also interested.

Training is part time 30 hours, even if you are hired for a full time position.

You have to get to work early and log into the computers PRIOR to your shift to 'clock in'. If you are late clocking in for your shift you get HALF a point. If you call out sick you get 1 point.
After 3 points accumulated you are terminated.

You are micromanaged every minute of the day. Be prepared to be asked "what are you doing?" if you are not on a phone call, including trying to do follow up work that they do not allocate time for. You are supposed to fit them in between calls, but your calls are typically back to back.
