    I worked at Younkers part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The flexibility in scheduling was nice, in the event that I needed to pick up hours of have shifts covered. I worked specifically in the shoe department and my boss in that department made my job great.

    Cons

    pay wasn't great, there wasn't much room for growth & promotion within the job, but then again I wasn't really looking to do more. it was just a job to pay the bills through college.

    Achieving sales goals was fulfilling, pressure to open credit cards was not.

    I have been working at Younkers

    Pros

    enjoyable retail environment, enjoyed working as a beauty advisor and providing personalized service and earning commission. Younkers is higher end than some other retail establishments which is nice

    Cons

    The biggest downside of working at any department store is the hours which include evenings, weekends, and many holidays. I also dislike the way scheduling is done at most large retail store these days which is by a computer.
