    Pros

    Very pleasant place to work. Clean environment . Flexable schedule as to your availability. Room for advancement. Will train the right person.

    Cons

    Not enough hours for the amount of associates part-time hours available. Management are only empolyee's to get full time hours. Good job for someone who just wants a little extra cash.

    Advice to Management

    Less employee and more hours for the ones you have. On calls our hard to accomplish, because you can't plan anything for that day incase you have to go into work.

    I have been working at New York & Company part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The main thing I really enjoy about working at NY&CO is the emphasize on customer service. I also really enjoyed my management team and other co-workers.

    Cons

    The coupon limitations, the constant promotional changes, and the large emphasize on getting credit.

    Advice to Management

    Make less coupon limitations

    I have been working at New York & Company part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's rewarding working with customers. Being able to help them figure out what they need and to be able to supply that for them makes me feel amazing an an associate.

    Cons

    -At first I did not feel appreciated at all and I still don't at times for the amount of work I put in. -For as much credit I have to push on the customers and amount of work daily I'm requested to do, that sometimes isn't even in my description, sometimes it feels like I deserve better pay that 8 bucks an hour.

    Advice to Management

    PLEASE update the computer systems at the cash wrap. They are slow, out-of date, and annoying. Customers are often upset at how long the process of checking out takes for a few items.

    Pros

    Great discount Flexible schedule not micro managed

    Cons

    open on Thanksgiving Behind the times in technology

    Advice to Management

    Most customers want a decent amount of personal attention. Be ready to spend most of your time on the sales floor attending to them. You will not make it at NYCO if you can not multitask and delegate well.
