Sales (Current Employee) – Florida – January 18, 2019
Unlike many retailers, the hours of our stores vary, making it a better work/life balance than working at a mall or department store. Most stores close early and some not open all weekend or have very limited hours. Under new leadership, we are learning ways to drive the business and what that means to all of us to reach our gross profit and obtain goals. It has been great to see how the company has changed over the years and how the Support Center staff tries their best to embrace our ideas.
We are a unique retail brand and while we are growing, we aren't perfect. But, we have been slowly making positive changes on all levels from management, merchandising, training, and processes that will enable us to continue our growth plan.
Many retailers are closing business, but we continue to grow. This is a specialty niche market - and being the heart of the hospital experience is just the beginning.
#Love2WorkHere is our new social media campaign - I love my job and hope others will find that a career at Lori's Gifts, Inc. will be a great point in their career!

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 2, 2019
Does not hire within or let employees grow within the company. Demoted all Assistant Managers's wage to sales associate wage. Therefore eliminating Assistant Managers. Agreed to pay $15/hour but cuts hours so employees can basically still make previous wage. Working 2 hours a day isn't worth it. Will make management work hoildays short notice. No job security or advancement. Will no let you use sick time if you do not use it before it you accumulate 40 hrs. Then they wipe your available sick time which is illegal.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Worcester County, MA – December 19, 2018
Customers are friendly and polite. We can not wear jeans, but nice attire is approved. The store is small and easy to maintain. Merchandise is nice and a lot of diverse cultures shop here. They are slow at tie but picks up and the company has good rewards for their employees to enter into winning ten dollar gift cards and so on..
Discount on senior citizen day and staff gets a good deal.
It is a smaller version of the larger Lori's gifts around the country, I worked my way to Asst. Manager my way of hard work and integrity. I best part of my job was the customer services and the selling floor maintenance. The worst part of my job was the implementation of the reduced hour work week for employees.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Ft. Worth, TX – November 1, 2018
It's in a hospital, so you meet new people everyday, but day to day work is the same. It's a big company so you have to follow rules and do things a certain way. I recommend this place if you're just starting out in the working world.
It was a great first job and I did transferred to the Lake Land after I worked at the Moffitt cancer center shop there. I have learned a lot from the company over the 2 years and half I learned how to be a cashier and a key holder and now I have inventory experience. I have computer skills because of it and I have trained a few people for the company.
