    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.

    Pros

    Good money. A lot of customers so it is easy to reach sales goals if you are on top of your game.

    Cons

    The hours aren't that great. They also don't follow your schedule promptly the way you set it. Don't treat employees as if they are important.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and treat them with more respect.

    Pros

    Employee discount is great. My coworkers were also very helpful. Scheduling was always very flexible and coworkers able to take shifts.

    Too much work load for the pay. I was given several tasks that at other stores, would have been spread between many people.
