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

Pros

Very fun environment, If your young you would really enjoy your customers. I enjoy that customers are our main priority. You have a small staff so you feel like family at times.

Cons

Too much work for minimum wage. The random change of shifts gets annoying, and the job could be more professional at times.

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

    Pros

    Easy, sometimes fun, interesting people work there, no dress code, employee discounts

    Cons

    Everything gets old. Fast. No hours, shoddy pay (like really less than $100 for two weeks), bi-weekly pay, unfair treatment (SS would always come late, or just not come, nothing. I have a panic attack at work and get written up for slacking off. This place honestly caused me to have multiple panic attacks a month. They changed the schedule on days I was off (which was 6 days of the week) and never told me, I was fired for missing work twice (two more write ups) because of this. Huge shoplifting problem (to be fair those people are the ones they target) both customers AND employees. Silly pocket check does nothing. Obligation to talk to and push every single customer to buy things like some kind of used car salesman.

    Oh, and almost all the stuff there is cheap crap from China worth not even half what it's priced for and falls apart like nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional, stop picking favorites. You hire too many people with almost no reason to actually hire them, I almost didn't say a word the whole interview and she just talked and talked and I got the job. Maybe if you tried a little harder to get to know who you're hiring this place wouldn't be in the toilet.
