No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Spencer Gifts part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

relaxed dress code, employee discount, interesting customers, constantly getting cool new products, pretty cool coworkers, get to meet interesting customers.

Cons

always changing floor plan, no raise for associates no matter how hard you work, not allowed to befriend supervisors, have to change entire store around while also being required to greet and talk to every single customers.

Advice to Management

let hardworking associates get raises, otherwise they lose the drive to work hard because the slacker is getting paid the same.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Spencer Gifts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If under a good DM, the company can be pretty good to work for. It's a fun, customer-focused environment and the new products are always exciting.

    Cons

    Benefits are horrible. For Gold benefits I still had to pay 1,000 or so out of pocket before they would cover a percentage. The pay isn't that good either.

    Advice to Management

    Better benefits and higher pay equal happier employees and less turnover
