push, push, and more push. not for the sale but to keep changing end caps and displays
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), The Villages, FLJune 20, 2015
Pros: great products
Cons: need robots to work there, not people
Liked products they have but the management in itself never cared for the employees, just moving stock and we have had a few accidents that we could not report.
Many other issues that I will not discuss.

Relaxing
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee), Valdosta, GAJune 6, 2015
Pros: breaks
A typical day at Kirkland's involve making sure customers are helped and store is stocked and cleaned. I enjoyed working with everyone and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. Management is top notch, and co-workers are helping and understanding. Working at Kirkland's you have to be willing to work as a team because that is what Kirkland's do; works as a team.

Fun and productive workplace
Third Assistant Manager - Truck Manager (Current Employee), Indianapolis, INApril 29, 2015
Pros: Employee discounts
Cons: Benefits if not a management employee
Kirklands is very focused on customer interaction. We strive to make sure that every customer is finding what they are looking for, and we have gone out of our way to find it.

Mondays are "Truck Days" - when we get our shipment from the distribution center. That day is spent unloading and unpacking boxes.

Being part of the management team has given me the opportunity to see how the business is run, not just being given a task and not understanding the why's and how's behind it.

Productive Workplace
Team Member (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TNApril 23, 2015
Pros: discount on merchandise
Cons: no breaks, four to five hour shifts
A normal day of work at Kirkland's was coming in and clocking in and getting straight to work. You greet customer no matter what you are doing and where you are, ask customers if they need help finding any items, or grabbing merchandise from the back that was put on hold. Management was great to me and took your schedule seriously. The hardest part of the job was doing the truck with stock on it and unloading it. The most enjoyable part of this job was building the sale, offering customers things that might complement what they wanted to get.

Great Experience with Friendly Employees
Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee), Trussville, ALMarch 2, 2015
Pros: meeting new people
Cons: lifting heavy objects without help
Management is poor and new employees aren't trained properly. Veteran employees are very friendly and seem to know how the store is supposed to run. The best part of the job is getting out new product and learning its features so we can inform customers about them.

Productive, very fun work environment
Sales Associate/Cashier/Customer Service Clerk (Former Employee), Corpus Christi TxFebruary 17, 2015
At Kirkland's I learned more about customer service and about hitting our number for the day for the store. My co-workers and management were amazing, very upbeat environment. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new customers every day and learning about the different styles and taste people have in homes.

Enjoyed the job and the associates I worked with.
Merchandise Manager (Former Employee), Sevierville TNFebruary 12, 2015
Pros: the co-workers and merchandise, and money
A day Kirklands consist of paperwork, receiving and processing shipment to the floor, coaching associates to set merchandise and to meet customer satisfaction. The hardest part of the job was balancing the hours demanded as a Merchandise Manager and my responsibilities in my personal life. The one thing I learned while working for this company is some people will do anything to get to the top, and if you are a threat, they will turn your dream job into a nightmare. But the most enjoyable part of the job was working with some of the greatest people and the merchandise is wonderful...after a floor set, the feeling of accomplishment was amazing...and still to this day Kirklands is one of my favorite places to shop.

2nd Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Lady Lake, FLOctober 30, 2014
Pros: flexible scheduling
Cons: short breaks and lack of support
A typical day at work involves constant customer service and tasking throughout the day.
Keeping the store in tip top shape is a routine must.
I am a manager and I think that I make my staff enjoy coming to work.
It's hard to keep staff on board for long, perhaps because of the work load often given to them.
The hardest part of my job would have to be maintaining store appearance during peak shopping hours.
The most enjoyable part of my job would have to be the time before we open and after we close, to count registers, be completely involved with how the store looks and fix what needs to be fixed.
