    Stretched too thin

    Former Employee - Selling Supervisor  in  Davenport, IA
    Former Employee - Selling Supervisor in Davenport, IA

    I worked at Younkers full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits, ok pay if you ask for it, and commission in some areas.

    Cons

    This company is downsizing and many areas are struggling because their employees are stretched too thin, inconsistent hours, retail has its own downsides.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop downsizing and stop putting tons of pressure on supervisors to get all of the work done alone.

    Worked way too hard in a sometimes stressful environment for little pay and not-so-great management.

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Bay City, MI

    I worked at Younkers

    Pros

    Coworkers, fashion, discount, regular customers, always something to do, good retail experience

    Cons

    Can be stressful, busy days, short staffing, associates work hard while managers sit around, unclean work area, body strain from carrying loads of clothes and getting things down from up high

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get involved with customers and staff; you get paid enough that when your paperwork and phone calls are done, introduce yourself to customers and make sales and when its really busy, maybe help out your associates since they have several things to do and are taking care of the most important thing, the CUSTOMER! Give more incentives (corporate)
