    Pros

    A good store manager makes for a good work experience. Create a posh-feeling shopping experience for customers. Significant special employee discounts for special store events.

    Cons

    Upper management seems to be in flux. Many stores closing. Corporate restructuring.

    Advice to Management

    Your associates are the people who keep the company running. Treat them with respect and they will work harder for you. If times are tough, don’t cut corners on the lower ranks.

  3. "Can be taxing but generally a good environment"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Sales Associate in San Jose, CA

    I worked at New York & Company part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You get an employee discount, which is helpful since anything from the store can be part of your uniform and the items there can get pricey. Most of the customers really liked the store and were very familiar with it so generally didn't have bad customer experiences.

    Cons

    When business was slow, it got tedious to stand around and futilely fix the hangers in the clearance aisle but when it got busy we would often get overwhelmed. Most of the types of shoes we were suppose to wear weren't comfortable for long.

    Pros

    Employee Discount is very good.

    Cons

    Management needs work. Sometimes it is good and sometimes it is not.

    Advice to Management

    Hire Better Management. It's a very mixed bag.

    I have been working at New York & Company full-time

    Pros

    There is an employee discount of 30% when there's no sales going on over 40% but if there is it changes to 15% The managers are really nice and willing to work around your schedule

    Cons

    The pay isnt the best for the amount of work you do Sometimes the manager encourages you to buy clothes from the store A main priority is to push customers to get as much clothes they can They push getting credits a lot

    I worked at New York & Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great customers base who are the most loyal I’ve experienced , easygoing company for the most part. Amazing employee discount- 40% for store managers & 30 for all others etc on top of sale price.It would drop to 15% however you’re still receiving at least 65% off all merchandise.

    Cons

    The promotional changes & constant Floorsets. As far as promo changes, I don’t mean one or two per day. I’m saying 99% of the time it was the entire store . At least once a week.Yes, everything changed price every single week! Come Saturday & Sunday there were more to be made- At least on the weekend it was no more that 10-15 . They spend a good chunk of money on marketing, Too much. Just to add to the excessive... amount already owned per store. Along with resetting the floor every other week. Stores would receive the guide used to mao the changes only a few days in advance . Only to find half of what was called for was coming in late! Either late or 5 million boxes at once . With very little payroll to do any of this. It’s a shame . I would of stayed if it not for this.

    Advice to Management

    I understand new merchandise constantly flowing in for their loyal fan base and marking the floor 50% off or some other extreme sale would drive the business. But come on now every week? It became too much.
