    Pros

    Great discount.
    Learn a lot about the products.

    Cons

    They do not care about the employee. They care about shops and how big your sales are. Thats it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more for the insane amounts of work you make people do. Give employees the resources to grow and reward them for a job well done.

    I worked at Yankee Candle full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They encourage creativity and there is opportunity for climbing if you have the right connections.

    Cons

    Very cliquey. Be very careful to make sure the right people like you, or they will sabotage your job. I've seen it happen to others and it happened to me. They ended up firing me and very careful to make it a horrid reason so that unemployment was not an option. I reported a racial slur and my job was sabotaged as no course of action was taken for her. Be sure the right people like you!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The nasty clique attitude needs to go. There is way more back stabbing than you realize. And stop being two-faced with the CEO, it's bad for business.
