    Pros

    I enjoyed working at the Valley West Mall location. As long as you can keep up with customers and keep your department presentable, management was happy. The employee discount was generous and a nice perk.

    Cons

    Communication wasn't always the greatest. If you weren't at the morning meeting, you missed out on things.

    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 atmosphere, people and hourly pay. Management was also great about listening to employee needs and wants.

    Cons

    Not that many hires for part time employees. Dress code was a little too much for what i could afford.
