WHEN YOU CARE ENOUGH YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD.

Are you the person who wants to inspire meaningful relationships and enhance people’s lives? Do you like to celebrate others? Do you take pride in everything you do? If so, we’re looking for YOU to join our team!

WHO WE ARE:

At Hallmark Gold Crown, we believe that it is our mission to help change the world, one moment, one celebration, one relationship at a time. We take this mission seriously. Our customers invite Hallmark into their lives to help them show how much they care – to commemorate life’s most special occasions, provide comfort through-life’s most trying times, and the everyday moments in between.

This part-time opportunity is located at our Hallmark Gold Crown store in Rockford Crossing in Rockford, IL.

The Hallmark Gold Crown store is the destination for all things caring. The place where all of the magical things Hallmark has to offer – cards, gifts, ornaments, movies, and more — come to life to inspire and support people in their desire to care and connect. We help with the perfect solution for all of life’s relationships and occasions – to feel more deeply, to celebrate more uniquely, and to connect more often. Our store team is driven to reach store goals while delivering a memorable experience to each of our shoppers because we genuinely care and choose to make a difference in the world and in our communities. Our Sales Leaders are key to providing a ‘caring team’ atmosphere for our customers. The difference begins with YOU!

AN OVERVIEW:

Our Sales Leaders bring this mission to life in the store. They are the face of the Hallmark brand to customers and vital to the success of Hallmark engaging with our shoppers to help them find and build the perfect card and gift solutions for the many days and ways in which they care. Our customers rely on Hallmark’s caring team to help them in locating the right card and gift for their current need, surprising them with new ways for connecting with those they love, as well as planning for future relationship needs and milestones.

WHO YOU ARE:

Someone who believes in the power of caring and connection to change the world. You nurture relationships and honor traditions. You find opportunities in life’s many moments – big and small, happy and sad, expected and unexpected – to show how much you care. You love working with people, and are naturally helpful and affirming. You often go the extra mile to make a day, lift a spirit, warm a heart, or lighten a load. You know that it truly is the little things in life that make the biggest difference.
