Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee) – Delta, BC – 27 March 2018
On a everyday basis I would help customers, work on the cashier and sometimes unload new stock. The most enjoyable part of the job. has to be the management and the kids. The only issue with the job is the lack of hours and opportunities.
CUSTOMER SERVICE (Current Employee) – Halifax, NS – 20 February 2018
learned to deal with different type of people in different ages , and respect them and accept their opinion. The hardest part of the job when you have co worker works only for money never care about people and you have to fix every thing after them because, we are working to reach on goal.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Ontario – 7 September 2017
Company used to be great then it went downhill when headoffice screwed up managing the company and expected the store front employee to make things better again. Doesnt value their employee, favoritism and micromanaging over worked. They talk about work/life balance but theres none. Handling boxes all over the place. Constant change on promotions too easy to tell stores to do it because they never do the hardwork. Doesnt give you enough payroll but expect everything to be done without much payroll. The culture is very negative in a way you never heard good things. The only most enjoyable part working in there is the kids.
Good benefit coz you gonna need it believed me
Constant signage change, long hours, not enough payroll
Sales Lead/Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 30 August 2017
I had a lot of issues working with Gymboree. The management allowed rumours to be spread about me that ultimately cost me my job, and didn't take disciplinary action against the person spreading the rumours. I would not suggest working there.
the management was very poor. there was no direction and could not get everything done due to the lack of organization of the management. They change their clothing to often so customers or staff can never get used to the store.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Thornhill, ON – 16 June 2017
Fun, fast-paced children's apparel shop with high-end, quality products. Good experience for students and people new to the retail industry, as the management gives clear instructions and exposure to a variety of sales tasks.
my typical work day working at gymboree would consider of meeting new parents and babys and helping them shop for family and friends. the hardest part of my job would have to be inventory most enjoyable part is playing with the children
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 14 May 2017
I've been working a Gymboree for a few months and it's an okay job. The thing I dislike about working there is when there is 2 employees and one of them has to go on break leaving one person alone in the store. It can get a bit frustrating especially since you can't check the back for products or assist other customers because you're on cash. The management and employees are really friendly and are easy going.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 28 April 2017
building planograms, which is the set up of the store at night. must be sure to acknowledge every customer that comes in and try and add onto their bill. atleast youre surrounded by lots of cute clothes and the occasional baby. warning the video that plays is on repeat, same with the music as it is company approved. Gets a little much after a while
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 26 March 2017
Day to day I would engage closely with the customers. Often building customer-employee relationships with our regulars and completing transactions. Sales goals were important and it was important to optimize our current weeks sales over the previous weeks sales. A big part of the job, and perhaps one of my favourite parts was merchandizing. It was important that the product was displayed properly and maintained throughout the day. Lastly, of course was keeping the store clean and tidy. Gymboree was a relaxed but productive environment to work in.
