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.
I am looking for another job.
I work with some very nice co-workers
The demands they put on you for little pay
