Overall a positive experience

Store Manager (Current Employee) Florida State, FL

ProsYankeee Candle has a satisified customer approach. Our customers know that we stand behind the best candles made.

ConsFloorsets can be a terrible ordeal when the product is not available. You are held to comp numbers even when the right product is not available. Average dollar sales are always a factor and returns go against you even when they come from other stores and internet purchases.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit making threats and help with solutions. When customer traffic is down and the ADS is up it means everyone is doing their job even if it is not over LY numbers. An action plan should not be required.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
