Enjoyable and positive work environment to really connect with customers
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Oakton, VA – September 13, 2013
A typical day at work is checking in merchandise, arranging displays and overstock of items, greeting and assisting customers constantly. I learned how to provide great customer service and really link in to the needs of customers and give them an experience that would make them want to return to the store. Management can be really great or really not-so great depending on who you're communicating with and what topics it is relating to. My co-workers are great and I made a lot of great friends through out the years. The hardest part of my job was feeling confident around certain management because instead of helping us become better employees we might just be criticized and told we were wrong but not taught how to do things the right way. The most enjoyable part of my job was the relate-ability to the customers and being very easily knowledgeable about all of our merchandise.
lenient work schedule, great co-workers, appreciative and kind customers
healthcare (as heard from other employees), how management handled certain situations

Hallmark is a nice company to work for. A lot of working alone but still have access to support. Really flexible schedule and easy work. Work once or twice a week for a couple of hours, so you can work more than one job if needed.
You must be able to stand stoop and bend for up to 4 hours. I have learned organization skills. Little to no supervision. Overall the whole job is great. I am just looking for something with a few more hours.
Being able to complete tasks with little or no supervision
My day starts with the putting up of ordered merchandise. If the merchandise is seasonal it will take longer than ordinary. Audits are usually my next undertaking and submit the findings to your parent company.
I like the finishing work I do
I don't like interruptions that interfere with my finishing product.
Enjoyed the day to day work. Dealing with the customers and helping with their baggage issues. The different types of people I came in contact with help the day get by fast and was the most enjoyable parts of my days.
The customers coming in contact with on daily basis
Flexible hours, I enjoyed the company employees I worked with

Pay is nothing to brag about, but it did offer a very flexible work schedule with opportunities to work some extra hours. Training by management was a little lacking but i received a lot of hands on training by the other merchandise reps in the area who were extremely helpful.
Flexible hours, paid mileage, opportunity to work extra hours
Have to be able to be available up to 2 days prior major holidays, and the day after the holiday to do resets with long hours
Cashier (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – August 2, 2015
I was an all day cashier, only worked weekends due to school. My manager was sweet, there was only 3 of us working so we did everything like inventory, clean, handle money, stock items, make decorations, etc. The owner didn't pay over time and didn't give raises, I could never see myself growing in the company.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Merrillville, IN – July 30, 2015
From the first day at Hallmark, I felt welcomed. Clocking in, putting on that apron, and getting onto the sales floor made me feel like I was ready to do something important. My co-workers and manager all not only made meaningful connections with the customers but also with each other and in the end, when the store was closing, I felt as though I was leaving a family. There were some pesky customers rearranging the store, but putting it back to rights was always fun for me. Every task and every day were planned to a tee and the organization of the company really just made working for Hallmark a breeze. I loved every second of it!
