    I worked at Yankee Candle full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Candles at a discount. The CEO is very passionate and compassionate. Communication with corporate and management is one of the best I have ever seen in the retail world. They attract great employees because of the great branding and products.

    Cons

    Extremely high turn around on DM. I worked there for almost 3yrs and we had 5 DMs. You had to read daily emails to find out who your DM was that day or week. They have no official Interim Store Manager title so I was officially the Assistant Store Manager for almost 3yrs but unofficially I was the Interim Store Manager for 1.5 years with the Training Store Manager popping in once a week to check things out.
    You have to be part of the "In" crowd to get anywhere. Do NOT anger your DM at all in ANY way because you will promptly find yourself without a job. On more than one occasion, I saw complete store staff fired from Store manager down because they "rubbed" the DM the wrong way so be prepared to kiss butt if you like your pay check!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that Yankee Candle has alot of super stars working for them and they know it. There are just a few bad apples... weed them out and continue to do great things as a company!
