Contradiction to Hallmark Values
Product Marketing, Head Office (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 May 2017
Worked at Hallmark for several years and watched as the company declined in numbers and morals. Sometimes the conditions were inhumane and it all had to do with the managers that worked there. HR would not do anything about it and a lot of the managers were there because they had worked there all their lives (straight from high school) and had all the experience but lacked managerial/people skills. I, along with several people who no longer work for the company, can attest to the fact that there was a lack of respect for employees and a lot of shady things occurred within the management team that could be said to go against everything Hallmark portrays to value. I willingly left the company as did a lot of people, whether it were for another job or for sick leave (which occurred way too often and had to do with the mental health of employees). The only good thing to come out of this job, other than a steady income, was the friendships I made with co-workers.
Worked everyone like a dog, Shady HR manager, lack of perks for employees, but managers got all the perks like sporting events, telling employees they should be grateful they have a job, minimal raises if any, salary freezes frequently
