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!

    I have been working at Younkers full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great prices, great people, still a decent selection of product,

    Cons

    Too many promotions, not enough payroll to staff the stores

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have to spend money to make money. If you want to grow, let alone hold onto your market share, the company strategy will have to change.
