Not good. I mostly get 1-2 hours a week, sometimes 6. You are told on Sunday how many visits to each store is required for that store and how much time you have for that week. You are given a list of activities to accomplish in the time allotted. Your visit has to coincide with shipping schedules because you only have 48 hours to put a shipment out. For example I was given 2 hours and 12 minutes this week. One store visit, maditory on Friday but I had 4 boxes delivered over the previous weekend. They are now making it mandatory for two store visits on the same day prior to a holiday. One to be completed by 10am and the second between 3-6pm. They do not give you enough time to complete the projects they have given you.

Should've followed up with employess,weekly or per email.some of management in pharmacy stores were very un-pleasant when it came to doing inventory. Also as,receiving credits as needed.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make American Greetings a better place to work?
Pay merchandisers at least the going rate. Give ample time to complete projects. Make activities actually match what is being shipped. Have projects listed on the schedule well before the week it is due, this lets a merchandiser organize their time.
It would be definitely worked with if needed but there is lifting and a lot of standing including walking
How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at American Greetings? What are the steps along the way?
It takes about a week depending on when you are available to interview. You have to pass a screened phone call and then you are scheduled for an interview.
On an average you work 8 hours a day but there is also mandatory overtime during the holiday season.
