    I worked at New York & Company full-time

    Pros

    It gives you the ability to improve your professional and casual wardrobe. The work is not super difficult. The hours aren't bad.

    Cons

    The pay is a little low. The expectations are high. The hours can be inconsistent. You don't receive health or any type of benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Make the position of sales lead a full 40 hour a week position so that benefits are offered. Don't short change this worker because they're really isn't much difference in responsibilities and expectations.

    I worked at New York & Company (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very convenient and friendly environment. Need to elaborate on policies for temps in participating in Company's incentatives. Company invitations to Sample Sales are not for temps to participate in and are not informed instead encouraged by departments you're working for and if participated, position become terminated.

    Cons

    employees are mechanical and don't think out the box

    Advice to Management

    be open to new employees and their abilities instead of playing it safe.

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

    Pros

    They paid slightly more than other retail stores. Employee discount was nice.

    Cons

    Company misrepresents sales/coupons to customers. Workers are valued more for their ability to convince people to apply for a store card than for their actual work ethic and overall value as an employee. Managers were very rude to employees, which is the main reason that I quit.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people. Fire/retrain the management in the Barboursville, WV store. They seem to have a difficult time remembering that employees get breaks and that they, as managers/supervisors, shouldn't just sit in the back and pretend to work the entire time.

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

    Pros

    Sometimes you got a good discount, some co workers were fun to work with. Got to wear almost anything you wanted to.

    Cons

    Crappy hours and pay, sales change every few days, managers couldn't even scan the store with they were supposed to and blamed the associates for the items ringing up wrong, the associates are solely responsible for cleaning the whole store, managers couldn't answer simple question or asked question they should already know.

    Advice to Management

    Train your "managers" a little better.
