I have been working at Younkers part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I love Younkers! I have worked here for years. I started in management and ended as a sales manager but stayed on as a short hour associate while I pursued a career in financial services. I love this company. I have worked at both stores in my city and both of the HR managers and store managers are fantastic.

Cons

They are troubling through this economic time in terms of re-organization of their staff. So, basically, customers can't find anyone to help them sometimes. It's busy and overwhelming at times, but if you've got the right attitude the customer will oversee the wait!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train train train. Please leave the project, you can do that later. Spend time with your new associates. Even if they have a "buddy"....check in!

    Pros

    Being able to see the sales each day and get some great deals.
    Meeting a lot of other great Sales Associates.
    Talking to a lot of nice customers.

    Cons

    The ratio of pay for the store manager and assistant manager compared to Associate's is not fair.
    There is very little opportunity to move up within the company.
    Being pressured to sell the store card and solicit emails from customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speak to associates and customers when you see them. It's nice to be acknowledged.
    Recognize and respect the fact that we make 8.50 an hour and you make way more.
    Be professional and polite and compassionate.
