I worked at American Greetings full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Great employees to work with. Laid back environment. People work as a team without haveing management shoving teamwork down your throat. It isn't required to work as a team but we did anyways.

Cons

Union Plant so the people who have been there for years don't do anything. The union allows employees that don't pull their weight to stay on without consequences. This is killing the business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take time to properly train employees. Find a way to get rid of the employees that have been there for years that don't do anything. I understand if they are still doing the job but when they expect a newer employee to do their job as well as their own you are paying two people when you should be paying one. This is a major problem and needs to be corrected.

    I have been working at American Greetings part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It was a nice company to work for at the begining.

    Cons

    The company was not giving enough work hours. There is no communication between the supervisors and workers in the Pittsburgh, PA area. When a problem arises nothing seems to be done about it. The supervisor never shows up when is suppose to. The pay and advancement is poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To train supervisors with more of an emphasis on people skills.
