I really do love my job. I love that it has helped me so much with my anxiety, I love the type of people that come into Spencers (we bring in a select crowd), I love my fellow Sales Associates, and there really hasn’t been a single person we’ve hired that I don’t like. We’re all like a big family. Learning to work the register and knowing your surroundings is very simple, every time I have asked for time off it’s been approved, even a day in advance. You start off at 8.50 and get 9.00 after 3 months. Not super great for career advancement, and hours are light for everyone whose not a manager. I get about 15-20 hours weekly. 5/5 stars.
If you care about being " yourself" more than money.

Pay is low, managers are salary & working over gets you less money per hour. Management above SM can be great, but some can be rude, dismissive and caddy. They care more about relieving complaints than sticking to their policy. The micromanaging of sales style prevents sales decelopment. They are slow to get on board with trends and end up making far less profit by being too safe.
