Store Manager (Former Employee), West Covina, CASeptember 25, 2014
It was a good company to work for a few years ago. I had a great support system when I first started. I can't speak for what it is right now seeing as it has been 4 years ago.

Enjoyable work with a great company
Store Manager (Former Employee), Miamisburg, OHSeptember 18, 2014
Pros: great benefits
At Gymboree I was in charge of merchandising, money, scheduling, meeting sales goals, customer relations, managing the employees, managing the supply orders and the budget.
I learned how to be an effective manager.
My co-workers and management were pleasant to work with.
The hardest part of the job was not having the autonomy to make customer service – more... decisions at times.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being part of a great group of people all working towards making the company successful. – less

Corporation is great company!
Key holder (Current Employee), Wesley Chapel, FLSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: constant communication from company headquarters
Cons: not enough hours for sales associates
This corporation is a good company to work for, their standard company policies are easy to follow and understand. They keep their employees abreast of latest fashion for kids, verbiage to use to greet customers as well as reminders of how to handle complex transactions and loss prevention.

As with all jobs, it's the people that make the difference!

Customer service
Customer service Rep (Former Employee), DixonSeptember 12, 2014
Cons: no job security when it get's slow.
You work hard and demonstrate your customer service skills,dependability and reliability and when they no longer like you they just terminate you with no reason. They hire with a staffing agency so they don't have to tell you anything. The staffing agency just completes you assignment and gives you no warning or reason.Been working customer service – more... for over 15 years and I have never worked for a company with poor management and training. – less

Sales Associate and Sales Manager (Former Employee), Tacoma, WAAugust 18, 2014
Pros: long lunches. fair hours.
Cons: n/a
~ A typical day at work would start with customer service and end with customer service. Inbetween those times I would fold clothes, clean the floors, windows, and displays, I was a cashier as well.
~ What i learned while working there would be even though not all people are easy to deal with you learn to handle all situations with care, respect, but – more... also authority.
~My co-workers at this job were amazing. They were fun to be around, made working feel like we were hanging out and working.
~The hardest part of this job i think would be the customers who come in and aren't the most pleasant to be around.
~ The most enjoyable part of this job would be meeting new people and working with my co-workers. – less
