    The opportunity to make a contribution and advance my career.

    Cons

    I would be making something up, to identify a real downside.

    Advice to Management

    You did a great job of anticipating the challenges the economy would cause within the retail industry.

    I have been working at New York & Company part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked at three different NY&C locations, and each employer has treated me with great learning experience as a part time sales associate and brand ambassador. The rules are generally the same everywhere you go, and the set up is pretty organized. For the most part, I like my environment and the girls I work with. Everyone is really sweet and from my experiences, the dress code policies allow you to be individual and trendy, while still following rules. Great employee discounts.

    Cons

    Credits are pushed and it feels as if no matter how many credits I get as an associate, it's never enough and I am always told to get more, instead of just being congratulated on my accomplishments.

    Advice to Management

    More raises!

    Pros

    I worked in a smaller store so I had the chance to become closer and work with my managers a lot. Was my first job and gave me a lot of experience but there are always those managers that play favorites.

    Cons

    Maybe it was just my store and I know every store has its slow season but when slow season came around the managers played favorites until they needed me to do the hard word like floorsets and cleaning the stock room. got very very little hours slow season.

    Advice to Management

    Give the workers the credit they deserve

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

    Pros

    -Great management in the store I worked.
    -Promote from within.
    -Flexible with your schedule.
    -Work hard, and you will reap the benefits.
    -Great people to work with.
    -Great job for a college student.

    Cons

    It is retail - so obviously, you will have a difficult time getting out of the holiday season, meaning if you are not from the area you work (i.e. college student), your time to celebrate the holidays may be cut short.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to change your policies often, or make sure stores are practicing the actual intended, written policy, and not getting caught up on "practiced" policy. Customers don't like being told things have changed.

    I worked at New York & Company part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of different experiences fast! It's like New York... if you want fast paced and room to grow, it is amazing for that.

    Cons

    It's fast! If you get behind in the workload you are in trouble. But if you strive for that sort of thing to keep up you will be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your customers more. They are willing and happy to tell you what they want. Employees have lives too. Remember what holidays are all about please

    I have been working at New York & Company part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The associates are fabulous people, the customers are quite tame for the usual mall-goers, great benefits/discounts, customer service comes naturally, and managers are all extremely fun and flexible. The initial hourly pay is over minimum wage, which was also unexpected. Training was quite easy and the POS programs were extremely easy to navigate on the registers.

    Cons

    Barely any hours for part-time associates unless people resigned/were fired.

    Pros

    Fun place to work, Can Advance quickly through the position.

    Cons

    Not enough hours and pay isn't great.

    Advice to Management

    Be More organized with your shipping and safety to staff, some stores don't even have air conditioning. Shipping boxes stacked everywhere at back and can hardly move and is a fire hazard.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, plenty of hours, if you work hard you get what you deserve.

    Cons

    A little drama here and there but then again where isn't there?

    Advice to Management

    Other than a few plays of favoritism I wouldn't change the people or how the place is ran. It's a great store with an awesome team. Keep doing what you guys do.
