    I worked at Yankee Candle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are some great people in this company. A solid product, Yankee Candle is a company you can feel confident representing.

    Cons

    My location had 13 managers in 7 months. You read that right, 13. That kind of turnover is unacceptable, and is a reflection on district and region management. I worked as an Assistant Manager and Interim General Manager, and ran the store by myself. Store management gets burned out with the constant changes and promotions, and sales goals are frequently not met. In a struggling economy, candles are some of the first things to stop buying, especially with the Kohl's and Bed Bath and Beyond wholesale options, making your time less and less valuable to a dying company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close some stores. You're cutting your client base into fourths when you have enough for maybe one store. Also, don't kill your employees. They're only as perform as well as they want to, and in retail sales, there's always another job around the corner. You lost the majority of your management in Utah for this reason. Treat your employees better. Cut the stores you don't need. Lastly, don't run your stores and employees into the ground. You'll close your retail stores if you don't change.
