    My store’s associates and managers are my friends so the job itself is ok because we communicate well.

    I have been working at Spencer Gifts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The office is great, people are fun, lots of perks (free food, events, gym). Treated great during covid (was furloughed and they paid my continued benefits). Do not accrue PTO, given when you start.

    Cons

    Pay is low but normal for the area. I had the worst manager. I tried to move to other departments and was pigeonholed to stay in my position because I was "needed" there. She gave me a terrible review and bullied me. I went to HR and they turned it into my fault. No 401k match. Manager told me this is a 50 hour per week job, which I'm pretty sure is illegal if I'm only paid for 40. She yelled at me if I left on time, even if work was done.
