Yankee Candle is an amazing company!

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
Santa Barbara, CA

ProsThe company really cares about their employees and you can feel it while working there.

ConsNot always the most competitive pay

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure your employees can not find out how much each other makes. Currently the schedule tells all. You can calculate how much someone else makes by counting the payroll hours when you work with only one other person.

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