Product is fun. Moms, children and families (customers) very enjoyable.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Leesburg, VA – August 4, 2012
The most enjoyable part of the job are the cute clothes and helping the customers. You very rarely had a difficult customer. I enjoyed the whole ambiance of the store everyday. I enjoyed working with my co-workers. We had the young college and high school students. The young mothers who enjoyed the product. Also, my favorite, the grandmothers. The most challenging part of the job was accomplishing the tasks that needed to be done with minimal payroll/hours. I can honestly say, I was never bored.

I enjoy working with the customers daily. I learned company procedures for operating the register, and assisting customers. We ring up customers give gymbucks and sensor and put out stock daily. We clean the store put up signs and sign up customers for rewards cards.
rewards such as candy, food and bonuses for approved credit card applications.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Meridian, ID – March 31, 2016
Having mainly covered the closing shift my story begins with: - clocking in - greeting customers ( as I exit the backroom) -Immediate tidying of the store's products (shooting customers compliments as I do) - ringing up sales - reminding customers of rewards programs and encouraging them to purchase a little more to earn that extra point - closing cleaning duties
My coworkers are the best of the best! I've rarely (never) worked with a grumpy person! My boss is amazing and so understanding ( :
NO negatives about this job! I love every part of it!
Cashier (Current Employee) – California – March 16, 2016
Learning to give great costumer service. The management was a little unorganized my first 5 months there but now it is great. Co-workers are great. Hardest per of the job is keeping my cool while a costumer gets frustrated but I have gotten better at it. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing a customer walk out with a smile.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Tulalip, WA – March 7, 2016
they were all nice and did there job mostly but when i started working there, after i got trained they would be in the back room for quite a long time doing what ever they did, and left me out on the floor for most of my shift.
Sometimes co-workers would bring in something for us all
there were only girls, when they hired one man didn't give him enough hours and thought he was too slow.
Store Manager (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – March 3, 2016
Being available to work peak hours to maximize customer service thru conversion. Work quickly to process shipment, Marketing and markdowns.Use of tools to establish daily business focus. Coach in the moment and lead by example.
Love the customers!!! Upper Management likes to micromanage you and make expectations they themselves do not hold each other accountable for. The lack of organization from upper managements goals to how they are executed on the store level are so far from each other it is frustrating. The upper management likes to make threats about discipline and when you need their help they are no where to be found. Typical do as I say not as I do attitude.
Pay, benefits and being treated with no respect from the Corporate Office
Play and Learn Teacher (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – February 20, 2016
I enjoyed working at Gymboree very much! Everyday I got to come and work with wonderful children, help them learn through singing and dancing which are some of my favorite things to do! My manager and coworkers were very helpful when I first started and I caught on pretty quickly with their help. Workplace was kept clean at all times so it made my job a lot easier.
Sales Lead (Current Employee) – Massachusetts – February 15, 2016
Gymboree is the most low paying, high standard company!! No raise after two years minimum hours when store gets hours expect to drop your life for them. Gymboree wants there managers to work alone even at night.
SALES MANAGER (Current Employee) – Boise, ID – February 15, 2016
A typical day at work is pretty enjoyable I love the customers that come in and their children are always a hoot to watch when they find things that they want. I learned more about myself as a new manager and what I can handle and what opportunities that I can take on to learn even more. My store-manager is pretty awesome she helps make it a more relaxed atmosphere and genuinely cares for her entire team same as the other managers including myself. Our team is pretty cohesive considering we are all female haven't had any cat fights or problems!
