    I have been working at Spencer Gifts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule
    Scholarship contest for management members
    Empowered team
    Opportunity for growth

    Cons

    Low pay
    Communication issues
    Lack of training for critical tasks such as apprehension

    Advice to Management

    Management generally needs more/better training on how to behave like management. Please look ahead into the future more, Spencer's is generally behind on the trends and it's unfortunate. I recognize that some things are out of the companies control, but sometimes it seems like the higher up's are just unaware of what is selling until a few weeks after it's burned out.

    Sales Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Spencer Gifts (Tampa, FL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Interview was easy the manager was talking to me like I have the job and I was told I would receive a call from another manager within another week no one ever called so I called the store to see what my status was because I was wondering why I didn't receive a call specially he was talking to me like I have the job had me sign the form for them to do a background check and the lady told me she knows nothing about it and she was going to call to see what was going on and if they decided to move forward me I will receive a call no one called me a simple if you decide to go forward with someone else a simple email will be fine and professional just a waste of time in the very unprofessional you shouldn't tell someone that they're going to receive a call if you're not going to give them a job offer I turned another job because I was giving the impression I had this one. And still haven't got no phone call or an email not a good look for a company.
