Fun environement
Sales Associate (Former Employee), London, ONMay 27, 2012
Pros: good break times, fun people to work with.
Cons: didn't turn out the way i wished it did.
A typical day at work; I would go in, clock in, usually help with inventory(help opening the boxes, putting the price stickers the products, put the products on the shelves/racks/etc.) I worked on cash, helped close the store(sweep&mop). I would also help customers on finding what they needed.

Fun and productive workplace with quirky customers.
Shift Leader (Former Employee), Columbia, MDMay 27, 2014
Pros: fun, quirky customers, great music.
Cons: short breaks, low pay rate, poor management.
Spencers is a fun, loud, and colorful place. Management works hard to keep store going, please customers, and keep store clean, as do the sales associates. The pay rate is low and there are very few opportunities for advancement, but if you're looking for a job where you can work hard and have fun, Spencers is definitely the place to work! While working – more... here I learned how to work as a team, and also how to lead a team. That in itself was a very rewarding experience. The hardest part of the job would have to be trying to keep up with all the new products that come in. The most enjoyable part of the job would have to be seeing the satisfaction and smiles on returning customers faces. – less

I Miss Working At Spencer Gifts
Temporary Help (Former Employee), Waco, TXMay 12, 2014
I have never felt like I belonged in a job until I worked at Spencer Gifts. Although it was only temporary, everyone was kind and fun. They all knew when to use humor and when to be professional. They treated me as a person rather than just as an expendable employee. I worked hard for the company and I wish I never had to move back to Illinois, otherwise – more... I never would have left unless I needed to. – less

fun place to work
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Manassas, VAMay 6, 2014
This place is a fun place to work but its full time is only 32 hours and never anything over. Raises are almost never given and job advancement is rarely given.

I love managing my own store and working with customers
Store Manager (Former Employee), Okemos, MIApril 28, 2014
Pros: being my own boss and being able to work with the cusmtomers
Cons: terminating employees
customer service, banking, meeting sales goals, ordering items, shipments to be acknowledged in the computer, loss prevention, loved my coworkers. The hardest part of the job was loss prevention, getting all employees to understand the importance of it and adhering to the company policies. I had to terminate a few people due to this.

Very fun play place to work!
Store associate (Current Employee), Lawrenceville, NJApril 18, 2014
Pros: fun customer, lack of dress code
Cons: pay/ lack of hours
On a typical day I helped customer find or realize what they are looking for, I handled the cash as well. I learned a great deal about retail and guest services, this company does care about their guest a lot but expects the fun aspect of the job to make up for the lack of compensation. The hardest part of this job the awful mall hours but the most – more... enjoyable part was the customers they're always interesting. – less

Very fun place to work
Store Manager (Current Employee), Monroe, MIMarch 29, 2014
Pros: meet different people all the time
Cons: far from my home
Spencers is a great place and very fun. Although stressful at times I do love working for the company. A typical day of work is remerchandising and taking care of guest ensuring they get what they need and of course a few add ons. I love all my co-workers and consider them my second family since I spend more time with them than my actual family. The – more... hardest part of my job is ensuring that everyone is doing what needs to be done when I am not there. The most enjoyable is dealing with different personalities throughout the day. Never a dull moment at Spencers. – less

OCD dream come true
Store Manager (Former Employee), Albany, NYMarch 17, 2014
Pros: fun, challenging, laid back
Cons: salary, no free time, limited room for advancement beyond the store level
Every day at this job is different. You are in charge of almost everything from unloading trucks, scheduling, payroll, hiring, merchandising and inventory. You will constantly be re-merchandising the store as this is a seasonal pop culture based business. If you want the feeling of running your own business this may be the job for you. While very rewarding – more... this job will consume most of your time and is really most suitable for a single person.The environment is very laid back with a casual dress policy and cool current music playing at all times. – less

Pros: enjoyable job
Cons: milage pay for travel
I learned to come in daily count the register tills and take deposit to the bank. Make sure the store was clean and window handprint free. Receive inventory, price merchandise and stock shelves. assist customers from obtaining their purchase to the register checkout. assign daily tasks for employees and ensure they are completed. Answer any emails and – more... conference calls, assign daily goals for employees. Ensure all loss prevention guidelines are followed to decrease theft, – less
