    Pros

    Working with some customers is really a joy. You get to play dress up every day with people who do not know exactly what they are looking for.

    Cons

    You are expected to do too much work for the little amount they pay you. Pushed to get people to apply for credit cards so that they can meet their credit goals.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more for the work your employees do.

    Pros

    Very easy and flexible with scheduling. Great store associates and managers. District manager was a bit unrealistic and difficult to tolerate. Generally stress-free work environment. Merchandise discount... yay!

    Cons

    Although there was a merchandise discount, the associates aren't paid much. The clothes aren't really in the price range for associates, yet, associates are expected to wear NEW merchandise (we were discouraged from buying sale or redline items since they were out of season). Then, I would get low reviews on my annual review in the category that pertained to "maintaining the NYCO image" which seemed a bit unfair. The pay was low, close to minimum wage, and the "raises" were usually 5 or 10 cents. There are also no benefits for part time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage sales associates to buy a black city stretch shirt and a couple pairs of slacks and use that as a uniform... and don't be mean to them when they use it as a uniform for nearly every shift. Also, try to give fair raises at each opportunity... it's really the only opportunity to show your good employees that they are appreciated!

    Pros

    Great clothes, very good employee discounts, there are a lot of times when the discount increases so you get a much better buy. Pay is good as well

    Cons

    selling credit cards. It is generally easy, but when the whole team is not on the same page, it can get frustrating

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the on call hours. Or make it known whether a person is working or isn't, it is very frustrating to work 8-1 then be on call from 1-3, like just let the person work until 1 or 3, so it eliminates any confusion.

    Pros

    This position have me my first taste of leadership and I was able to quickly move on and grow from it. It was a great opportunity for me.

    Cons

    At a district level, the company was well structured. However, at a store level my peers and store leader were very unorganized, they didn't really follow company structure, and didn't plan well at all.

    Advice to Management

    Know the daily goals, workload, and realistic time frames to get things done. Have leaders act more amiable towards associates and have some fun at work !


  10. It was alright but poor management

    Pros

    Nice people. Pay was weekly and overall nice customers.

    Cons

    Watch your hours, schedule was all over the place. They didn't accommodate your school schedule as promised.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better people not just pretty people. Not everyone is meant for retail so hire employees that want to work and help people.
