    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    -Some of the people you work with will be the best -Hours are pretty flexible if you have a good manager -Good discount on the scented items

    Cons

    -People in higher positions such as Regional Managers or District don't care about their workers. They'll allow their hours be cut and make them work 40 hours for 12 dollars -When you report something such an issue to the Ethics or HR, it goes to District manager and nothing ever comes of it -Customers get very irate incredibly quickly (Could possibly be threatened)

    Advice to Management

    -When someone makes a report of issues they're having with their managers, don't go through the DM's or RM's because they have relationships with these managers and nothing will get resolved. Speaking from personal experience. -Maybe training people a little better because in my eight months, I was still trying to learn how to do things that were expected of me -Show by example, do your job and everyone else will... do theirs
