Former Employee - Sales Associate  in  Albany, GA
Former Employee - Sales Associate in Albany, GA

I worked at New York & Company part-time for more than a year

Pros

Excellent staff to work with and fun working environment. Working along with customers is one of my strong points so I had the opportunity to showcase this and enjoyed what I was doing during the day.

Cons

Favortism among management is clearly seen and promotions are given accordingly, even though another person may be deserving. Hours are based upon meeting credit goals and this is sometimes not efficient because goals cannot always be met.

    I worked at New York & Company part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Good discount
    -Some management okay
    -Decent for what it is
    -Customer base is pretty good
    -Decent employee incentives - we occassionally received 50% off jeans, or an additional 25% off the regular 20% off discount, the first discount is 45% off.

    Cons

    -Hours based on credit card applications - I usually was scheduled for 10 hours a week because I could not and would not push credit cards, but I was a great employee otherwise so I was always called in to work or asked to come in when I was just around the mall shopping.
    -HIGH turnover - No manager I worked with is there anymore.
    -Low pay and little opportunity for pay raises, no benefits for part time employees.
    -Could not use coupons along with employee discount. Most of the time the coupons were better.
    -Litttle opportunity for advancement.
    -District Managers made things difficult for Store Managers and employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pushing your high interest rate credit cards! Stop having employees ask THREE times if a customer wants a credit card.
