Starter Job
Sales Lead (Former Employee), White Plains, NYJanuary 27, 2014
I recommend this job to people with no working experience. Not a job that you want to make into a career. Pay isn't great either.

I have nothing to comment on.
Sales Lead (Current Employee), Marietta, GeorgiaJanuary 27, 2014
I work hard, give 100% of myself when I am there and I expect to see the same but do not. Lack of respect from Management is how I feel.

Productive but terrible work atmosphere

Pros: flexible schedule

overall a great company to work for but did not value it's people.
REGIONAL LOSS PREVENTION MANAGER (Former Employee), Dallas, TXJanuary 24, 2014
Pros: vacation time accurres. good discount.
Cons: a class society exsists. so of the executives actually think they are betterhuman beings.
I did my job. I knew my job. I was passed over for promotions I was not even made aware of. My co-workers were the best. we all suffered together. Management was out of touch with what was really happening in the stores. Very senior members of the management staff would routinely violate serious company policies everyone else seemed to take for granted – more... as obvious, like sleeping with each other. Senior management has no connection to store, district or regional management. The product cheapened as far as quality is concerned. The good people leave (surprise). The company is dying a slow and painful death which will hurt many great people. The rich will stay rich and nobody gives a darn what happens to the rest. In the end it will be every man (or woman) for themselves. So sad, so very sad. – less

I dont mind
Backroom Leader, Replen, Cashier, Anti-theft (Current Employee), grand rapids, miJanuary 18, 2014
This company itself, isn't bad, However, management at the location I currently work for needs a change of hands. The assistant mucks the shifts up, and the store manager has absolutely no control over her.

Nice place to work, customers are pleasant.
Sales Lead- Key holder (Former Employee), Oshkosh, WIJanuary 16, 2014
Pros: helping customers
Cons: not enough employees, management, lack of communication
A typical day is straightening store to make it look visually appealing, helping and building relationships with every customer. Putting out new product that have come in. Management always in a hurry to leave early, expect the associates to do all of the work. The best part is the independence to learn more about retail sales.

Small company
PT sales associate (Former Employee), Norman, OKJanuary 7, 2014
Though just being part time, I def. see why the management team changes so much, Gymboree is a very small company. Easy part time job, would never move up with the company. I only had the job to pay off student loans.

Assistance Manager (Current Employee), Sugar Land, TXDecember 19, 2013
Pros: free outings for the family
Cons: hours and the travel
Gymboree is a great place for those that are on an entry level of Management. But to take care of a family with many years behind you it becomes too hard to get ahead.

Sales Lead/Management (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALDecember 18, 2013
A typical day at work would include opening the store. I would check voicemails to know any changes that need to be made in the store as far as signage or promotions. My co-workers were awesome. I loved putting together outfits for the children. It was a great place to work.
