    I have been working at Card Factory part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Staff are amazing, such a friendly environment to work in, never had an issue.

    Cons

    The pay is dreadful, it is minimum wage, so if you are 16-17 you are getting paid around £4 less then someone who is 18 and doing the same job as you if not less.

    Advice to Management

    Up the pay or level the pay for all staff at the same hourly rate to be fair and equal

    I worked at Card Factory part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My team were friendly and it was a handy part time job

    Cons

    Didn't get paid for overtime (which I had to do all the time) and no incentives to work harder for the company. Within my 13 months there, my store had over 13 members of staff leave.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff better and you'll get them to stay longer

    I have been working at Card Factory part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work itself is quite easy the customers can be quite nice things are quite simple when done right

    Cons

    You will get a plan display photo that has been designed by computer that doesn't actually fit on the wall that you're meant to put it on. The people who work in here can be quite lazy and unenthusiastic. And seriously good luck with your area manager

    Advice to Management

    Have better control
