I worked at New York & Company part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The discount, the flexible schedule, talking to customers in another language rather than English, when you accomplish promoting the credit cards it gives you a sense of personal fulfillment, a giftcard if you are the one that got the most credit apps for the month, the sweet and friendly customers.

Cons

A manager who wants to sabotage your work, gives you unreasonable hours and doesn't let you take your break if they need you to get work done. Once the assistant manager left, everything fell apart. Manager who calls out and expects another manager to work a double and be in charge of the whole store all day greatly affects how we get treated...like slaves.

Advice to Management

Communicate, stop talking crap about customers and employees. Stop making already good workers work the extra mile, be stricter when it comes to employees constantly coming late because other people can't leave til someone gets there, hire more people with less attitude problems, don't tell employees to go quicker when you're going slow, stop picking on people, they're only going to resent you and leave when they get fed up of the verbal abuse, don't expect employees to stay when they have to get to school.
