Hallmark Cards, Inc.

Retail Merchandiser

September 2019 • Hialeah, FL

What I liked

I like how flexible the hours. I am able to balance my academics, as well as my personal and work schedule.

What I wish was different

I wish that I would’ve joined this job earlier in the summer because it has given so much experience already. I have learned interpersonal skills, time management, how to follow instructions, and more.

Advice

One thing I’d share about my experience at Hallmark would be how it changes your viewpoint. A big chunk of the job is organizing the cards that are on display at the store, which is often in disarray because of customers. This job taught me that everything you touch in a store has it’s place, as well as a person who puts it in that place. Essentially, the advice I’d give is respect everyone’s workspace.

I like getting to help customers find the perfect gift for their loved ones on special occasions. Knowing that I helped make someone's day special is such a good feeling.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have gotten the job sooner. It's my favorite place I have worked so far.

Advice

Working over summer isn't always the most fun experience, but it is worth it in the end.

What I liked

I have had this job for two summers and during school breaks. I enjoy the friendships I have built with my coworkers and the rapport I have with customers. I also enjoy organizing and employing customer service skills.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have had more hours.

Advice

I think everyone should have a “lower end” job at least once. It teaches you respect, patience, and how to build customer service skills.

Sales Associate

June 2018 • Burke, VA

What I liked

All the friends I made at my job and also I was able to learn how the Hallmark store works.

What I wish was different

My manager needs to improve on a few things and needs better communication skills. The store could be organized a little better but isn't. The manager also assumes to much of her employees and I feel like I had to make many mistakes in order to figure out how some things worked in the store.

Advice

Always ask questions because some of the employees will assume you know how to do things when in reality you don't.
