    Not bad for retail.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Cary, NC

    Pros-Great management in the store I worked.
    -Promote from within.
    -Flexible with your schedule.
    -Work hard, and you will reap the benefits.
    -Great people to work with.
    -Great job for a college student.

    ConsIt is retail - so obviously, you will have a difficult time getting out of the holiday season, meaning if you are not from the area you work (i.e. college student), your time to celebrate the holidays may be cut short.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry not to change your policies often, or make sure stores are practicing the actual intended, written policy, and not getting caught up on "practiced" policy. Customers don't like being told things have changed.

    learnt a lot

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI worked in a smaller store so I had the chance to become closer and work with my managers a lot. Was my first job and gave me a lot of experience but there are always those managers that play favorites.

    ConsMaybe it was just my store and I know every store has its slow season but when slow season came around the managers played favorites until they needed me to do the hard word like floorsets and cleaning the stock room. got very very little hours slow season.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive the workers the credit they deserve

    Had a very enjoyable experience with NYCO and I would recommend any good worker to work with their company.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Deptford (Australia)

    ProsStrong leaders and management; realistic to personal issues; worked right along side of employees even though they may have been management; always gave supportive words

    ConsBad retail hours around holiday; not enough hours during summer.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep having a positive attitude towards your employees and they will do good work for you

    Great retail working experience

    Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    Miami, FL

    ProsI have worked at three different NY&C locations, and each employer has treated me with great learning experience as a part time sales associate and brand ambassador. The rules are generally the same everywhere you go, and the set up is pretty organized. For the most part, I like my environment and the girls I work with. Everyone is really sweet and from my experiences, the dress code policies allow you to be individual and trendy, while still following rules. Great employee discounts.

    ConsCredits are pushed and it feels as if no matter how many credits I get as an associate, it's never enough and I am always told to get more, instead of just being congratulated on my accomplishments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore raises!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fun, fast job

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt never gets boring. Busy store, so there is always something to do. My coworkers are a fun group to be around.

    ConsIt would be nice to know the work schedule for two weeks at a time rather than just one. Although the employees are a good group, because of the number, dividing the hours means not very many per person per week.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA great company to work for. Not a whole lot to say other than that.
