I'd work here again.

Store Manager (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at Yankee Candle full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat customers, decent pay, love the fragrances. You have a lot of wiggle room as far as making customers happy.
Lots of down time

ConsNever have every thing to complete floorsets , also once you sell through you constantly have to improvise to fill tables.
Lots of down time
DM don't know anything about running a store, most don't know how to ring a sale.
If your store closes you will most likely know before the higher ups think you should , which will tick you off even more.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your managers we do know our markets.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
