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

    Pros

    Fun place to work, Can Advance quickly through the position.

    Cons

    Not enough hours and pay isn't great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be More organized with your shipping and safety to staff, some stores don't even have air conditioning. Shipping boxes stacked everywhere at back and can hardly move and is a fire hazard.

    New York & Company was a great summer job but nothing long-term, it's gets frustrating after awhile.

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

    Pros

    The pay was great and the sales discount wasn't so bad. I wouldn't complain about having enough hours for the week and you were able to connect with the managers if working everyday.

    Cons

    Not enough employees and working random late hours. There was a list full of employees yet not enough people working with the run backs, register, dressing room, and in the back.

    I have been working at New York & Company part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The associates are fabulous people, the customers are quite tame for the usual mall-goers, great benefits/discounts, customer service comes naturally, and managers are all extremely fun and flexible. The initial hourly pay is over minimum wage, which was also unexpected. Training was quite easy and the POS programs were extremely easy to navigate on the registers.

    Cons

    Barely any hours for part-time associates unless people resigned/were fired.

    Find your target customer and focus on her.
    Reboot the culture and inject some much needed positivity and motivation.

    Pros

    Great working environment. My co-workers and management team were very friendly and nice. A very fashion forward company for the aspiring business woman. Offers a great discount and flexible schedule as well.

    Cons

    Working during the holidays, such as Black Friday, Christmas, or New Years can be overwhelming. However, that's the case with any retailer.

    I worked at New York & Company part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Lots of different experiences fast! It's like New York... if you want fast paced and room to grow, it is amazing for that.

    Cons

    It's fast! If you get behind in the workload you are in trouble. But if you strive for that sort of thing to keep up you will be fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your customers more. They are willing and happy to tell you what they want. Employees have lives too. Remember what holidays are all about please
