surprisingly basic retail job
Deal with customers at the till and on the floor, making sure their needs are met and their questions are answered to the best of my ability. The store sells intimate toys, intimate apparel, jewelry, hats, t-shirts that are all licensed. Often a bit behind when it comes to bringing in merchandise from big trends when fidget spinners were popular they were not received till the end of the fad. Do not expect any type of hours that you could remotely live off of unless you're at least a supervisor and even then the pay increase isn't worth all the extra responsibilities that the position requires compared to a sales associate. Sales associates will get maybe one or two shifts a week for most of the year outside of November and December and they won't keep it consistent unless you tell them that you have another job. The relationships are usually very amicable between employees of all ranks and those who don't mesh well don't last long. I have worked here 2.5 years and have not received a raise because they no longer provide raises for minimum wage or near minimum wage employees. They claim they want less employee turn around but they do virtually nothing to keep current employees by providing enough hours as all the budget for hours is used on supervisor positions. despite this, it is a fun place to work if you're looking for a little extra cash but not to pay any serious bills.
Pros
If you win a contest you get a $15 gift card. 30% off merchandise everyday, 35% birthday, 40% one weekend per motnh.
Cons
Very few shifts available to Sales associates outside holiday season.

Do not like the sales associates
Been there for 2 years now, and they treat their part time employees like they are there to steal and lie the whole time. They also only give out the bare minimum hours a week (4... maybe 8 if youre lucky) and they refuse to move anyone up to a higher position.

Fun place to work, if management is good.
Current District Manager seems to take this job a little too serious. Spencers is supposed to be about having fun but I was miserable every time he came in. I was one of the best at selling add ons at Spencers and he was constantly mad that I wasn't selling enough. Need some younger management in spencers. Its supposed to be a store focused on young people but most management is 45+..
Pros
cool product
Cons
not enough hours, no benefits
