Background: Second-year college student, previous retail/customer service experience.
I am looking for a job that would allow me to "choose my hours" (obviously I know there will be times that I will have to work certain days/times no matter what) and I came across the greeting card companies. They are both hiring in my area of Texas.
I was doing research through this forum and volition.com but it seems like that posts are majorly outdated (especially from volition), so I figured it wouldn't hurt to make this thread.
Is one company "better" than the other? Do either companies reimburse for mileage? If you work for them, would you mind sharing a range of what they pay new employees in your state? Would either company allow me to take 2 and a half months off in the summer/allow me to work in the major metro that my parents live in for 2 and a half months? How do you like working for them?
Thank you for your input, and apologizes for all the questions!
