Pros: friendly team environment
Cons: retail, not enough hours
A typical day at work at Yankee Candle consisted of interacting with customers, general up-keeping of the store, entering our sales numbers into a spreadsheet, and keeping stock. From working at Yankee, I learned how to dedicate myself to a company and a job position. I loved going to work everyday and seeing what each new day brought us. At Yankee, we were family, with the manager as our mother.I would say the people I worked with were the best part of the job, and the hardest would be taking inventory! It was hard to keep count of every candle in the store while maintaining excellent customer service. Chances are that if Yankee offered more hours and pay, along with it fitting into my schedule with school and personal priorities, I would still be employed with this company.
