Cons: sm very lazy and lie to you to cover what they do from dm
The Attitude of this company is full of lies and they are very
aware of their power they have over you.
The dental plan is terrible and medical plan went up and will as they don't want to pay alot'for their employees in stores who's not at corporate level.
Discount-10/20% not alot.honestly would you want to spend you wage in this place.
wage hire- even if you are exp want to get you in cheap
just like the countries over seas.
pay raise- keep waiting only if you are a favorite.
if you want to move up don't bother to many she and his behind your back and high school tattling to dm.
-and if you get that raise
they will make you sweat for it as they think they did you a favor.
All of corp, SM,DM are constantly putting people down as if they think that makes people try harder.and whats funny they talk about each other.I have sat in and heard dm talk so bad about another dm
and other corp office workers that I shook my head in disgust.
wow what do they say about the little folks?
The positions they have sales clerk/regester
dept mgr for their inviation/wedding area only ceratin people allowed to train for this, and who will do everything they can to pretend to be preparing for new invitaions,so they won't ring regester or clean up.
Alot of the invitation of wedding area's being removed in alot of their stores as the paper store dosen't make enough money, So if your area isn't at least 50,000 or more say good by to your well trained job for yrs you will be now a regester clerk with limited pt hrs no full-time.
dept mgr for hall mark always a mess and no store mgr will
actaully do – more... the work, I have seen with my own eyes every-SM will
say "oh I will help in new floor set and stay there for 5minutes
and find something else to do besides actually helping their workers.
and what's funny is alot of SM do not know how to run hall mark
these are SM who have been there for several years.
Apparel,which is way over priced you have dept/visual mgr
who really have not enough apparel exp, you could be an office worker and they will hire you for dept apparel position- Where are the exp apparel mgrs? Those are the people who know floor sets,visual exp and knowledge upt,sph,visual ect.hire them! stop hiring the bosses favorites and hire retail talent. no wonder apparel is a mess.
dept mgr for shipment who is a glorified worker and not dept mgr
Store mgr some started as dept mgr some came in as SM.
SM really do not like their jobs and to busy complaining about district mgrs and pretending they have a great store when they come in.
These same SM leave early without telling DM, and at times lie why they need to leave early so they don't have to close their one day week shift.They would rather have their dept mgr close each night and who cares if they have to open in am, as long as the SM gets another night off from closing.Every single SM I have seen rather ring on regester instead of helping their workers on floor, or if they do help workers they are fake working to let some say "see SM do work.ha!
and Asm mgr that are dept mgr, If they are a favorite for DM, you can bet they will be promoted and breaking the rules to.
lets see - you open the store and close am/pm count 3-8 regesters which waste your morning.without help , no store mgr wants to do this and make the dept mgr or key holder do this low level job.While the store mgr are in back reading emails that really takes 5min not more then hour,while sitting on stools.
Mostly dept mgrs do all of the closing shifts and expected to do their dept filled all through the night as the SM says and maintain the store,meaning count all regesters,balance deposit,get store cleaned up Easy you say.no! try closing every night and come in to bright eye SM who does nothing but Complain about the store recovery and you bet your dept as well. Of course all SM are happy to give advice how to handle the tasks an night , lets see they dont close and opening is easy for them.This company needs to have SM close-2-3 nights like other stores do The paper store I don't care what they say and how Fancy they want to act like their store is this gift place.
PAPER STORE - they are dept store not a gift or small boutique. – less
