It just depends on your shift. My manager worked amazing with my hours so I normally work 3 -4 hours on week days and work between 6-8 on the weekends.

Casual buissenss attire. Close toes shoes. I wear all Black Nike shoes. Black, or buisness pants. Also, you can wear dark blue jeans, or black jeans with a very dressy blouse. Blouses have to have sleeves and no t-shirts. Hope this helps.

None. Nada. Zip. You're just not worth it. After all, they have to cover the cost of the thousands of cards they toss into the dumpster somehow.

Hire less part time employees and give the employees who want the work more hours. Why does Hallmark hire so many part time employees within the same area?
The other issue that really bugs me is how contradictory Hallmark is. I don't understand how they expect so much work do be done with so little hours allotted per week. They want us to report ALL time worked and ALL admin time yet, we are expected to concentrate all that work within an allotted number of hours. Each week the hours are different. I don't know how but they calculate the hours somehow. It doesn't make any sense to me, especially during the Xmas season. For example, between two RMs this week Hallmark allotted 17 hours total for our store for the week. So, between the other RM and meyself we split the weekly hours. 17 hours is not enought time, especially this time of year, to keep up with Xmas AND maintain everyday merchandise as well. If Hallmark wants sales to keep up then allow employees to work more hours to get the work done correctly.

Basically, manager calls you. Talks to you a little over the phone and then schedules you to come in for a face to face. (Just a little introduction). In the interview it's the typical *what is customer service, *what would you do to prevent someone from stealing* how to handle unhappy customers questions. My boss hired me on the spot. But others she has hired with in the week. Trying to weigh in and out of options.

Everything was run very professionally. It is a family owned company and they just ask that you show up or call in to get your shift covered. A no call no show should be an automatic termination, but more chances are given.
