Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Douglasville, GA – November 8, 2016
A typical day at things remembered includes opening the store which mean bringing out products in front of store to get customers to come inside . Preparing the store for daily traffic. Getting the register handled before opening, making sure there is change to break larger bills. Greeting all customers who come into the store and informing them of all products and directing them into the right product for them. We get all kinds of customers, they are very personable. I learned about engraving machines, different style fonts, etc.
Worked independently during shifts in a fast paced environment, with brief slow periods that were used to recover. Management was great. Worked 5-6 days a week. Frequently called in to cover shifts for other employees. The most enjoyable thing was to see happy faces of satisfied customers.

During any Holiday the engravers are told they can not go home until the engraving is completely done for the day, unfortunately that means engravers can and will be there until open the next morning during serious Holidays like Christmas. Also management loves you until they have worked you to the bone then they looks for reasons to get rid of you.
District Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Maybrook, NY – February 26, 2017
It's not just folding or lacing. It's helping customers realize occasions and moments. It's a different kind of connection with customer that is different from anywhere else in retail. You also have to learn the production aspect of the business which not many other retailers have.
Pay sucks but top retail dog awesome workplace culture
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Buena Park, CA – February 8, 2017
Things remembered is an extended family and the other sister stores and our own home base made sure that we all were helping each other out as well as our customers, the pay sucks, however the workplace environment was a positive one from the seasonal sales associates to the higher up managers it was everyones goal to make each other and the customers happy.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Taylor, MI – January 5, 2017
I had a blast working here. No complaints except for the Seasonal hours ending. The main focus was planning and organization with this company. We organized production and customer service as well as attended and dealt with multiple tasks at once. We had no problem meeting the goals we had set, as well as the goals given to me. The Christmas seasonal helped to keep this position interesting, creative and efficient.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Schofield Barracks, HI – June 28, 2016
Other than holidays, there was always single coverage so you spend a lot of time by yourself. During your shift you are required to meet a sales goal, provide quality engraving in a timely manner and maintain cleanliness of the store. Management was very flexible and understanding; always available when I had questions (because like I said, majority of the time it was single coverage.) Things Remembered was such a smooth sailing job with hard working co-workers. We had great communication amongst our team!
Sales Associate, Cashier (Former Employee) – Dickson City, PA – December 21, 2016
This is great place to work at! You don't have much down time, with greeting customers and engraving what they purchase you constantly have something to do which is nice. A typical day is making sure everything is set out nicely and dust free and that you are available for your customers and that you know your products. Engraving the items is always a fun thing to do as well.
Sales Associate (part-time) (Former Employee) – Richmond, CA – December 27, 2016
This job was very relaxed with the addition of meeting new people. It was a great experience overall to be able to learn to engrave on different surfaces, meet new customers, and build great rapport with them. You do have to be able to pay attention to detail, for the job revolves around this, and you definitely have to be able to multitask.
Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) – North Jackson, OH – February 9, 2017
okay place to work for customer service but don't hold your breath for seasonal positions. the pay is good but you will only work for the season. you get to work and have to fight over a desk and fight over a chair. the chairs aren't very good and they hurt your back.
I love working for this company. I feel like I have room to grow and that I'm trusted doing my job. Only con I would say is after a while once you were trutsed it becimes solo coverage which can be intimidating
This was an enjoyable place to work, in the beginning. Then the company as a whole made cuts and changes and we went from working together to one person on a shift at a time. The only time you would ever see another person was during shift change or Christmas.
Great environment, needs to improve workflow management.
Engraver (Former Employee) – Milford, CT – January 12, 2017
The environment was stellar, all the employees knew their jobs and on good days the shop worked like clockwork. On the bad days, there was no way to know who was doing what or when something was due. Not a bad place to work by any means, but just be prepared.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – West Virginia – January 5, 2017
I really liked working at TR because it's different from the average store. You get to have a personal connection with each customer. Everyone I worked with was great and you could tell they took pride in their job/work.
