My typical day
Retail Merchandiser (Current Employee), Clarksville, TNJuly 1, 2014
I go to the back stockroom gather the boxes for the day and go out to the floor and stock the products. Sometimes I have to get with the client (store) and ask for space to promote new products. I work alone at my stores and make my own hours as long as I start no later then the companies required start time. I enjoy the fact that my job is VERY flexiable – more... on days that I work. – less

Working for Hallmark
Seasonal Installation Merchandiser (Former Employee), Braintree, MAJune 13, 2014
I enjoyed the work I did for Hallmark. I learned independence during my time with Hallmark. It was less than what I expected as far as teamwork and the job description. I only met my project supervisor, I never got the chance to meet my assignment manager but the were very helpful when I needed assistance. The hardest part of the job is remembering – more... the training information because it was very informal and quick. I did not get the chance to learn much about my co-workers because the job was so independent. – less

Great Job for Independent Workers
Retail Merchandiser (Former Employee), Eastern NC RegionJune 12, 2014
Pros: ability to work independently
Cons: management and staff of big box store not always cooperative with vendors.
I enjoyed my time working as a retail merchandiser for Hallmark. For probably 80% of the time I worked on my own - filling inventory, setting up displays, and organizing product as a vendor at a major big box store.
During major holidays I had the opportunity to work with other merchandisers in my area, setting up large displays, which I enjoyed.
I – more... also had the opportunity to help build new display fixtures in several stores in the territory, which was fun, albeit exhausting work.
Unfortunately, I had to leave the position due to health problems. If not for that issue, I would have gladly stayed. – less

PRODUCTIVE AND FUN WHIMSICAL PLACE TO WORK
Sales Associate/Shift Supervisor (Former Employee), Scranton PAJune 3, 2014
Pros: my co workers, annul bonus, steady raises
Cons: no healh insurance, not enough money for alomost a full time job
I would open or close the store during that time I would be a shift supervisor but when I first started I was a sales associate. It was not hard to be a shift supervisor the other employees took me seriously and got the jobs I gave them finished. I learned management skills and organization skills and leadership skills at this job. I ordered items from – more... companies to be shipped to the store for sale. I had daily bank duties. the hardest party of this job was the Christmas craziness the public loves Hallmark at Christmas time :] – less

Good hours
Retail Merchandiser (Current Employee), Washington, DCJune 1, 2014
Pros: can make your own hours
Cons: long hours before and after holidays
Most of the time you are working alone. You have weekly contact with your District Manager. Must be able to lift up to 20 pounds and read a planogram. The hardest part of the job is the long hours before big holiday like Christmas and Mother's Day.

Great company, great co-workers. I am a full time employee and I love it. Such a good place to wok. Learned many different management skills that I use in everyday life as well as at work.

Not the place to work if you like time with your family.
Retail Merchandiser (Former Employee), Franklin, VAMay 26, 2014
This is an easy going job. However, you must work every holiday and the day before and after every holiday. In addition to working the holiday, you must prepare for the next coming holiday which doesn't give you any time to enjoy the present. There also is no room for advancement and little compassion for family life outside of this position.

Fun workplace, mangement skills
Floor Supervisor (Former Employee), Chesapeake, VAMay 21, 2014
I would perform my opening duties which included counting the safe and dividing the money into each cash register. I would also give my team for the day their daily sales goals and the stores sales goals along with the goals for each specials offer. I would then ensure that each customer that walked through the doors was promptly greeted and assisted – more... in any way possible. I learned a lot about managing a team and so much about customer service and how important product knowledge is. My co-workers were a joy to work with, even when I am leading a team I enjoy the inputs of my co-workers and take into consideration everything they have to say. The hardest part was ensuring each one of my team members kept up with their daily goals. The most enjoyable part of working for Hallmark was the smile that I helped put on customers faces by helping them pick out the perfect card or gift even if the circumstances weren't always the best. – less

Once great, now good
DESIGNER (Former Employee), Kansas CityMay 18, 2014
Pros: opportunity to learn from other artists.
Cons: declining industry.
Hallmark though filled with great creatives is a shadow of it's former self. There are still great opportunities to learn from coworkers. A very talented crew of people work hard to stem the tide of sales decline. Hardest part of the job is watching hundreds of coworkers forced out and wondering if you will be next. Most enjoyable part? Good people.

Never enough employees to do task
Installation Merchandiser (Former Employee), Northwest PAMay 16, 2014
Pros: fast paced, fun, interesting
Cons: low pay for you and especially people you manage, understaffed, unrealistic expectations, wastefull
I worked as a Merchandiser for 2 months and was offered a Installation Leader position. This position was to manage a "team" of merchandisers to redo store displays. The work orders would call for 10 workers and I would be lucky to get 6 so would end up working 12-16 hr days including driving 1-2 hrs to the location.

Also the waste killed me throwing – more... away thousands of cards and hundreds of gift bags that should of been donated to someone.

Product was wrong for the reset often and continually when I was a merchandiser as well they over sent product that was not selling and continually got overstocked.

Very hectic and unorganized.

Great job otherwise I loved it being fast paced but would be better if corprate had realistic expectations of what a work could be done as well as not having to do resets in mid busy shopping times. – less
