The work, like any Retail Job was at times stressful however that said The Expectations of the Job, The communication abilities of those higher up, and The guest interactions were all pretty consistent save for a few minor slip-ups that were addressed soon after. I will say that the training in my experience can be a bit hit or miss but, I am also aware that I'm a bit biased as I was an emergency hire at the time and the Manager who hired me was over extending themselves. The impression i was given during a talk later with a Higher up was that it was an exception and not a rule. So in Summary, If you're considering working for Spencer's it can be really enjoyable but keep in mind it is a retail job with all that entails. The management at least does care about their employees and their ability to continue working

Pros and Cons
Fun co-workers, Fun Environment, accessible food options, Good Communication

Overall experience was good for retail management growth. Restrictions challenge you to think outside of the box to stay within company guidelines as far as budgets, labor hours, and day-to-day store operations, which is great for learning and developing your management style. Open communication with other store managers is a huge benefit to learn from each other and better understand sales trends and establish/evolve store best practices. Expect to work 55+ hours to meet company demands and stay within allotted labor hours given.

Pros and Cons
Friendly store-to-store competition, bonus availability, great LP & HR
No work/life balance, low labor budgets, expect to work 55+ hours a week, minimal training
