Having worked in the company from sales assistant up to store manager over the space of 5 years, not one day has been the same as any other! The Greetings Card Retail industry is definitely not one to be undertaken lightly; the work can be hard physically and mentally, but under the right management, it can be one of the most enjoyable industries anyone can be in, especially with Card Factory!
When recruiting people, my approach has often been 'Is this person Card Factory or not?', as I strongly believe you must be a certain kind of character to perform well and contribute effectively in this company. I have seen many people come into the job thinking it will be a piece of cake and that it's 'only cards, how hard can it be?', and watched them leave the job after a couple of months because they simply cannot hack it. People who do not enjoy the job and have negative outlooks on the company simply aren't 'Card Factory'. You've either got it, or you haven't!
