Very fun place to work. Friendly staff and customers
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Fairfax, VA – July 29, 2014
•Assisted in shipment for products •Ensured accuracy in activities. •Maintained neat warehouse. • Greeted all customers pleasantly. • Provided suggestion to customers. • Monitored inventory of all supplies.
I learned customer service skills and about hallmark products. Coworkers were the best I have ever worked with we saw each other as family no just coworkers. Hardest part of the job was during the busy holiday time. Most enjoyable part was seeing the customers happy.
The hours aren't as flexible as expected. They want the most work for the least hours. The publix receiver are rude to you and no one really converse with you. Its a job for people who are not social and want to be creative and left alone.
Merchandiser (part-time) (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – April 27, 2016
Liked most parts of the job, but the supervisor was a drama queen. Hired during the peak holiday season and had no real training. Once all the holidays were over, they cut your hours and then complained that you did not do enough. Supervisor was always creating some type of drama. All of the people she supervised quit and she ended up doing their day to day job. I never had a problem working anywhere prior to this supervisor. I hope Hallmark begins to realize that maybe the SUPERVISOR is the problem in this area and not the workers. The computer scanner they gave you to do the job just did not work. Very physical job. Lots of building of displays for holidays.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Dayton, OH – April 25, 2016
I learned quite a bit through this job. I maintained the merchandise and stocked it on the sales floor. I received merchandise and scanned out the outdated merchandise and returned it the Hallmark. I assisted customers in finding what they needed as well as made suggestions to them. I went to several different stores as I was needed.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Lawrenceville, GA – April 24, 2016
This job was pretty standard as far as sales/cashier jobs go. However, you needed to know lots of product placement and back-stock available on lots of items. We sold a lot more than cards, so setting up items for display was sometimes a hassle, especially when making sure the customer was taken care of first. Overall though, this was my first job, and I would recommend it to anyone who needs a good start to their job life.
Job works well for someone looking for very part time work. Has no plans for holiday travel before or after holiday. Very friendly staff. Learned to use an electronic device for scanning ordering and lots of other employment information.
Fun job. Typical day is checking in new merchandise and putting all the merchandise out. Weeks of major holidays like Valentines are very busy. The downfall is pay and on weeks where there are not holidays you get dew hours
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – April 13, 2016
I learned all of my management skills here. I worked with all different age groups. Part and full time employees. I learned to handle complaints and compliments. I learned how to make people loyal to your store. I loved the merchandise, getting new things was like Christmas everyday.
As retail merchandiser, have an opportunity for varying hours which makes it easy to do some errands as needed. Had wonderful supervisors who never failed to give help if needed on technical communication issues or other information I had questions about; they were trained well and I received adequate training, The retail stores I worked in appreciated my dedication and hard work. The hardest part of the job was when I had to lift too many larger boxes too close together in larger stores. The most rewarding part of job was feeling appreciated if or when went above and beyond the call of duty so to speak. When I needed technical support, with communication devices, it was forthcoming.
Appreciation of my hard work and a good work environment
Pay raise was long in coming ; drive too far for amt money
3rd generation privately held company with a great history
Distribution Group Manager (Former Employee) – Enfield, CT – April 1, 2016
Hallmark has a proud history of helping people to express their emotions through greeting cards and a wide variety of other social expression product. The many benefits of today's digital world creates huge challenges for some very good, well established companies. There is still a market for Hallmark product and the company is working hard to secure its future. Some facilities have been consolidated and other workflows have been streamlined with the unfortunate, but necessary, reduction in jobs. The thousands of people remaining will undoubtedly support each other in the friendly and innovative culture that I was fortunate enough to have been associated with for my entire career. A truly great place to learn, grow and contribute to the company's many successes!
