    Pros

    Great people to work with. You can easily get time time if you want it. Management can be lenient with policies.

    Cons

    Environment can be negative sometimes because of complainers. Not much room to grow in a lot of positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to get to know your employees.

    I have been working at YM Inc. full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work if you love working in retail and with clothes. My co-workers are great people to work with. Bonus incentives monthly.

    Cons

    Absolutely no balance between personal life and work. No weekends off. Very demanding company as far as expectations of managers. Salary does not equate to the amount of the work load consistently put on management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I suggest cutting down the required management hours (44) and the required "set schedule".

    I worked at YM Inc.

    Pros

    Good Bonus Structure on strict goals and decent wages but still below market standards.

    Cons

    No respect for senior and experienced employees as well as store management and part-timers, growth opportunities only given on personal preferences. wage increment is next to impossible. long hours and no balance to family life. No retirement benefits. No golden shake hand even after working for 30 years or so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to give respect to employees. Treat and give opportunities on merit only. Have to have senior and experience employees benefit plan as well as retirement plan.

    I worked at YM Inc. full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    good discount at numerous stores
    urban atmosphere which was fun

    Cons

    pay is next to nothing
    crazy goals
    higher management is awful
    treats employees and management with no respect
    will do anything to save a dollar like treating management like crap and finding loop holes into not paying out bounses earned

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    higher management needs to treat there store managers and sales associates better
    make pay rates comparable to other companies

    Current Employee - Retail Sales Associate in Brampton, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at YM Inc. part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Discount (20%)
    - Young staff, easy to make friends
    - Easy work

    Cons

    - Staff are friends which equals tons of work place drama. It's like high school
    - No raises
    - Not much room for growth
    - If you're not a top seller, you don't get as many hours. But whoever works cash dictates who gets the sales. If you're floating between the floor and cash, you can assign all the sales where staff didn't help to yourself.
    - No advanced notice about sales and promotional pricing. You got to work and everything had changed and you had to learn on the fly. It's hard to give customer service when you yourself don't know what's going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little more employee rewarding. I get that the store positions are high turnover and as a business you won't invest a ton in every employee, but a little goes a long way.

    I worked at YM Inc. part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Most co-workers
    - Nice music
    -Nice clothes

    Cons

    hours would get cut SO bad I even remember one time not having ONE shift for TWO WEEKS to a MONTH.. noone likes getting a $33 paycheck !
    the manager doesn't care for anyone but herself and the people SHE hired (I was hired by a different manager who actually cared about the employees) had to witness some Sales Associates and MGRS talk rudely to the customers (THATS WHAT SIRENS IS KNOWN FOR) when the original mgr came back from her maternity leave she fired 2 girls for NOO reason and who were counting on the job to pay their bills ! and the gossip between co-workers was a huge problem

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct some intense training on the employees! teach the managers how to run their store PROPERLY and help them get a higher education.. Most mgmt are at that position because they started working there in the 10th grade and only have a High School diploma.
