Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Great associates to work with, they were strong in their skills with store selling expectations and operationally strong

Cons

The District Manager's layout of what the expectations were for the Store Manager position and what they changed to once I started working in my store.

Advice to Management

Be clear with your communication, your message even when challenging your team should be motivating and inspiring and not led by fear. Your management teams will continue to leave if you continue to treat them this way.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great regional mgr who appreciates and values her people...

    Cons

    CEO was rude! Never acknowledged me or my team. We spent hours preparing for his visit and he never even greeted us.

    Advice to Management

    Clearly when jobs are being eliminated and you work a 12 hr shift ALONE...it's time to move on. Contrary to your DM there are better jobs out there!!!
