    I worked at Spencer Gifts part-time (Less than a year)


    I LOVED my co-workers! The whole place had a chill, laid back vibe. Customers were super awesome and it was very easy to make friends with everyone.


    Have to deal with annoying, shoplifting teenagers and giggly preteens. Customers can also be rude, but not all the time. Floor moves can also get stressful because some are hard to find. Shipment can also be overwhelming.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Spencer Gifts.


    I was at my local mall and I saw a sign about a new Spencer's store opening. I applied online and about a week later, I got a call from a manager and set up an interview. We met at the mall and walked to the food court for the interview. It was a super casual interview. It felt like I was talking to a friend rather than a manager.
