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

    Pros

    Employee discount was alright. Could pick up additional shifts. Training for non seasonal workers wasn't rushed.

    Cons

    High turnover. Short shifts. Had to repeatedly push Credit Card to customers- couldn't stop with 1 "no" needed to get 3 from the same person before we could leave them alone. I always met my credit goals each shift but other sales associates that didn't had their hours cut. Seasonal workers didn't really know what they were doing since they lacked real training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pestering customers about the Credit Card gets old for everyone. Most part time employees aren't able to do it in a way that's not off-putting to the customer.
