Overall fun workplace, but depends heavily on having good management
Entertainment Consultant, Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Greenville, TX – January 1, 2019
Spring does an excellent job at trying to foster a strong bond between team members at stores. However, just like any retail job, the environment is often highly stressful and severely emotionally taxing for employees. The support offered by management helps with this immensely, but if an employee struggles with his/her goals in a given month, there is often little that can be done to assist them. The work culture, while very positive, feels like mostly fluff to hide binding goals that do not always allow employees to offer their satisfactory sales experience without shunting in undesired products and services into every transaction. I worked this industry for 5 years and gleamed several important skills as a result of having several excellent managers, but many of my coworkers lasted less than 6 months - 1 year before quitting. If you are someone that loves to work with people, has an immense amount of patience or charisma, and can be aggressively positive, then I can recommend a career at Spring. For anyone else, you will learn things about yourself while working in the Spring family.
Strong teamwork, clear company vision
High stress environment, binding goals, fluffy culture
