    Pros

    Great store environment and great coworkers. Worked here when I was a student and my manager was always understanding about me needing time off for exams and events. Customers are also pretty laidback and we had some really nice regulars.

    Cons

    Company was changing things a lot when I worked there, so there was a sense of instability. When I worked, they had recently implemented an automatic restocking system, that was supposed to order things for the store automatically depending on the stock levels listed in the computer. However, I worked in a high volume store where there was a lot of theft, so the numbers didn't match up. Also, I suspect some general kinks since our store was always running out of things and people would ask us if we were closing since they noticed bare shelves/walls sometimes. Also, no opportunity to move up in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Think about the customer and what would make them happy. Some of the changes that were implemented weren't really to their advantage, and for a company that prides itself on customer service and the customer experience, some of these changes don't make sense.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Hallmark (Sarnia, ON).

    Interview

    Nothing unusual. Filling out forms to see if you are customer service oriented. Read company expectations. Review process from your resume. It was straight forward and easily managed. Everything gets sent to head office. Head office tells store level if you passed the questions. The store manager hires you or not. Simple.
