Former Employee - Sales Associate

I worked at Yankee Candle part-time for more than a year

Great work environment Flexible Hours Teaches you how to sell a product Black Friday is long, but fun to work

Cons

Not much of a raise Low traffic

Advice to Management

Management was great

Former Employee - Store Manager

I worked at Whittard full-time

Pros

Generally good product. Good staff discount/allowance. Great hot chocolates.

Cons

Incompetence throughout multiple departments at head office. Big gap between stores and head office . Felt dismissed and undermined constantly. Awful wages-big issue within company that is always... ignored/overlooked. Poor relationship with area manager, deceptive and self serving. Little room for development or progress. Archaic systems, unbelievable amount of paperwork. Lots of pressure to hit targets, little to no monetary incentives or almost impossible to obtain bonuses. Rubbish benefits/compensation.
