Your job depends on who you work for.

Store Manager (Former Employee)

ProsIf you have a good DM who is fair and knowledgeable about their job you will most likely succeed.
I enjoyed working for Yankee. Corporate people are the best I have dealt with. Most companies won't even return phone calls. Yankee cares about there people. BUT it does come from your supervisors as well. They are your link. If you don't have support you can't make it.

ConsLong hours, little to no breaks. Standing for long periods of time. Being a salaried person you must fill in when you are short on payroll. Pretty much the same as any other retailer.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet the right people in the right places for your stores to succeed. Positive attitudes and attainable goals are a must! Constant learning environment is needed always. Districts need to meet more than just once a year.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
