Retail Associate (Current Employee) – GTA/Toronto Area – 12 June 2013
Hallmark pays terrible wages to their retail staff. Almost no increases at all and when you do get one it is only a few pennies. Keyholders are not paid any more than other staff. They are very demanding for minimum wage.
The management is completely disinterested in the retail staff but put plenty of demands on you regarding promotions, membership, add-ons, lots of heavy lifting and manual labor, short break times, sick time, etc.
It has really gone downhill since the U.S. took over Canadian operations about a year ago.
Its a great workplace merchandising is hands on making displays with and without planograms.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Cornwall, ON – 7 February 2018
The store is a great working environment with great staff , we generally work alone on a day to day basis doing merchandising with and without planograms I am able to pick up Or pass on a task to a team member easily as we work well together and alone as well. The reason I am seeking other employment is with the new wage increase hours are decreasing .
