Great company culture. Outlet division has tons of potential for advancement. Retail has lots of opportunity for entry level management.
Scheduling is difficult, payroll is always tight.
Advice to Management
Offer a method to reward hard working, amazing associates with raises more frequently. Once a year for 15-35 cents an hour is not motivational.

I applied in-person. The process took a day – interviewed at New York & Company (Winter Garden, FL) in April 2015.
I came in one day at around 1:00 pm. I asked the manager for am application and she gave one to me. I left, filled in out thoroughly and came back in in about 20 minutes with me resume and cover letter (which I had prepared beforehand). There is an online application where you can fill out at home as well and I used it as a reference to see what info to write down. After turning the application in to the manager, she asked if I could interview later in the day, at 5 pm. I said yes and came back about 15 minutes before 5pm. Since the manager would be out at that time, another manager (I think assistant manager) interviewed me in the middle of the store. She asked straightforward questions that are pretty basic when interviewing. They just want to know that you are a positive, open person that will mesh well with the other employees and the customers that are very loyal (as they have been with the store since before it was NY & Co.). She asked how I dealt with business and certain situations and I got the job on the spot. The starting wage in my area is $8.15/hr, so basically a little more than minimum wage.
