Company on its way down
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Ontario7 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.
Pros
Good benefit coz you gonna need it believed me
Cons
Constant signage change, long hours, not enough payroll

Amazing until new DM came on

Gymboree has always been amazing, to work and shop at. New management has made the District go down hill in the last couple months.

A better place to work
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 August 2012
Small store so not many employees can be left along for longer periods of time, unrealistic goals most of the time, good pay and benefits package
