    I worked at Yankee Candle full-time

    Pros

    The people are the strength of this company. Amazing culture.

    Cons

    The leadership team is not doing a good job at promoting internally. There is no room for growth, it is very top heavy. Way too many VPs and not enough managers.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you do all you can to retain your employees.

    Retail Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Detroit, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yankee Candle (Detroit, MI) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was great, I had several interviews with the District Manager and also the Regional District Manager , both on the phone and in person. Both the District Manager and the Regional District Manager were super nice and overall it was a good experience. My advice is to know about their products and be an avid shopper with Yankee Candle. If you already know and love their products it is an easy interview.
