Review Highlights

Pros
  • For the most part, you get your employee discount along with the in store promotion (in 23 reviews)

  • Offers a great discount and flexible schedule as well (in 20 reviews)


Cons
  • You also have to shove credit cards down customer's throats, and no one likes that (in 63 reviews)

  • Work/life balance is quite possibly the worst I've ever encountered (in 17 reviews)

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

    Pros

    Pretty decent pay for retail, super flexible schedule, laid back atmosphere, decent discount.

    Cons

    Selling those stupid credit cards to customers, management sometimes based job performance solely on the ability to sell the credit card rather than the ability to sell clothes and provide customer service. It almost seemed like customers who weren't spending hundreds of dollars or credit card holders weren't treated equally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on customer service instead of shoving credit cards down the customer's throat

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

    Pros

    The managers at the store were very friendly. The store offered frequent sales and you recieved an employee discount as well. If you like their clothes, you may have to budget your money so you don't just give your paycheck back in exchange for a new wardrobe.
    The dress code was to wear all black. At first it was a little odd, but then I really enjoyed it because I could dress it up with a scarf and that helped me stay warm in the super air conditioned store.

    Cons

    I really did not enjoy the scheduling scenario. I was a part time, seasonal worker during the holiday season. I wanted to take as many hours as I could, but the schedule wouldn't be ready until two or three times in advance. This was very hard to plan around. Also, they had an "on call" shift, which was especially annoying for me. I like to know if I have to work or not. And, working for minimum wage is never rewarding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The back of the store was very ugly. I understand the need for a warehouse atmosphere, with boxes of product constantly being moved around. The restroom was not nice at all. Given that most of the employees are women, you might consider making a "dress code" for the employee bathroom. Perhaps provide motivational posters. A caddie for nice lotion & hand soap. A candle. Something!
