Review Highlights

Pros
  • For the most part, you get your employee discount along with the in store promotion (in 23 reviews)

  • Offers a great discount and flexible schedule as well (in 20 reviews)


Cons
  • You also have to shove credit cards down customer's throats, and no one likes that (in 63 reviews)

  • Work/life balance is quite possibly the worst I've ever encountered (in 17 reviews)

    I worked at New York & Company part-time

    Pros

    Fun co-workers, pretty easy job

    Cons

    Had to push credit cards onto people even when they told you they wouldn't get approved, bad shift planning (I once had to work 17 days in a row), time off hard to approve

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Friendly employees. Discount on clothes is nice. Mall hours, occasional great buys. Management is nice to work for.

    Cons

    Poor pay, pushing credit cards to earn hours. Having to wear their clothes or all black. You work to pay for your clothes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring new employees and giving your hard working employees crappy hours. Up the pay other comparable stores pay more

    I worked at New York & Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Discount on the Clothes.

    Cons

    Executive Team are experts in Micro Managing everything to the point, nothing gets done. No work life balance at all. Not uncommon for meetings to run 8-9 hours with no food or breaks. Not uncommon to put in 12-14 hour days. People have left after lunch and never came back! People have left after only weeks on the job. Turnover is high, direction inconsistent, and blame is the reward of the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave so the company can recover and thrive. Treat people like people not tools you beat to death. Try to remember, its just clothes, not nuclear weapons. And, most importantly, have the courage to admit that things are getting worse, not better.

    I have been working at New York & Company

    Pros

    Dress fancy to work

    Cons

    The worst job I've ever had. I was young (about 17) when I got this job, so I was by far the youngest in the store. I got 0 training and worked a Black Friday shift for my first shift. Was talked down to and in the end i ended up just not even going to work because I hated it so much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your employees and hire some younger ones.

    I worked at New York & Company full-time

    Pros

    Discount is good, but quality of clothing is marginal, so I'm not sure it is such a great deal.

    Cons

    Work life balance is terrible: they never fund stores adequate payroll, they constantly change promos and sales, they have poor salary scale, bonus and incentive program, but above all the worst offensive aspect of the company is the lack of integrity and consistency for the employee. The labor board should investigate them for law violations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire Circus Monkeys at DM level and above, they would show more appreciation than the talent that currently holds that role.

    I have been working at New York & Company

    Pros

    -flexible schedule for thos who have another job or school.
    -paid weekly $7.80

    Cons

    -you only get hours if you sell credit card and sometimes they still dont give u hours and they give them to other associates
    - you can't work full time unless your a manager or assistant manager
    -You will never hit 20 hours or sometimes not even 10. Not even on holidays you hit 20 hours
    -Depending at which store you work at, will depend if its boring
    -They go by favoritism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring more people when you can give more hours to those who are already working there.
