Store Manager (Former Employee), Bloomington, ILAugust 14, 2014
Pros: nice customers looking for great occasional gifts ... fun. to help and they have great stories
Cons: single coverage and 3-6 hrs per wk for sales assoc
Nice job if you like dealing directly with the public ... Great products and good company ... Kiosk is small and very boring when working times with no current occasion ... 3 - 6 hrs per wk for sales associates and mostly single coverage !!! That's really the only negatives otherwise nice easy customer service type sales job ... Management could use – more... more help and training communicating with store employees – less

HORRIBLE
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Eatontown, NJAugust 1, 2014
Cons: everything about the company
Promoted to ASM within the first week of being there because the current ASM was getting her own store. The store manager has no idea how to effectively manage.
Will not accomodate injuries.

Personal care aide
part-time keyholder (Former Employee), Mifflin, PAJuly 30, 2014
Pros: spending time with the residents who very often had some very inteseting stories to share
Cons: on street parking. they had no empoyee parking.
A typical day included administering medications to the residents of this assisted living facility. It also required assisting residents with bathing, dressing and light housekeeping. Sometimes I worked a unit alone, but most often you had a partner that made the day more interesting. Management was very friendly and easy to talk to if you had any problems.

Typical Day
Retail/Customer Service (Former Employee), Wayne, NJJuly 26, 2014
Pros: 40% discounts on any item
Cons: short breaks
On a regular day at work I learn a lot as I go. My Manager teaches me how to multitask and help out more than 2 customers at once. My manager was like a big sister to me, she helped me and recognize my good work and got on me if i slipped. My Co workers were funny and very energetic, we never had any disagreements no arguments. I am a peoples person – more... I love to make new friends or associates. The hardest part of my job is engraving when i had to used the machine i was very nervous because I didn't want to mess up on the object. The most enjoyable part of my job is making the customer happy. – less

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Whitehall Township, PAJuly 21, 2014
A typical day working at Things Remembered was pretty calm, with the exception of the holiday seasons. The management was great; they are willing to work with you, they're understanding, and more than willing to teach you how to engrave during free-time. My co-workers were good as well. The hardest part of the job was keeping yourself busy on a very – more... slow day after everything was already done. The most enjoyable part of the job was the gratitude you receive from a customer, after helping them make what they feel is the hardest decision of their life, when trying to choose the perfect gift with the perfect inscription. – less

All over the place
Store Manager (Former Employee), New YorkJuly 14, 2014
The company has designed a number of expectations that contradict themselves. They have a process of conversion selling that works for slower stores, but is absolutely non-functional in busier locations. A typical work day includes 18 hours of work expected to be completed perfectly with in 8 hours, and if you over spend 1 single minute in payroll, – more... you will be threatened with a write-up. The work itself is fun. The company itself is a disaster. The corporate offices have no clue what they are doing and could care less if they screw up a customer order or management order that reflects in sales and P&L goals that the store is responsible for meeting. The company needs to "grow up" and recognize they are ruining themselves. Their turn-over rate is incredible due to their failure to operate a functional business outside of robbing ignorant people of their money. – less
