I worked at Yankee Candle full-time
The people are the strength of this company. Amazing culture.
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.
I applied online. I interviewed at Yankee Candle (Detroit, MI) in October 2016.
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.
