    Pros

    Discounts, good merchandise, some nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Young people favored even if no experience in the dept., rude,etc. Was told I'd get a decision about whether my job would continue. Never heard. Was off schedule for about a month and quit checking.Bad upper management and H.R. staff. Crazy hours.

    The golden rule.

    I worked at Younkers part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The employees were all very friendly and willing to help. The store where I worked was not very large, so it wasn't too stressful of a job. The managers were also very helpful.

    Cons

    Some customers would get very angry with sales people about the coupons and the exclusions in the coupons. Said coupons were confusing because they didn't want to read the fine print on the back of them.

    Working midnight to 5 am on Black Friday is not great, though I had good managers/coworkers to keep me somewhat sane.

    Advice to Management

    Management was good - my complaints are for higher-ups - about making the coupons less confusing for customers and NO all black dress code.
