Fun work environment
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Mankato, MNJanuary 30, 2014
Pros: in the mall, free candles or discounts
Working around candles is always nice. You and the store always smell amazing. It is fun to relate candles to experiences with the customers and find any item to fit their needs. Sometimes the people you work with can be snobby but that happens almost anywhere. Overall the company is fantastic and fun to work with. It is a great job for a college student – more... if you work plenty of hours. – less

Decent place.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Pottstown, PAJanuary 17, 2014
Pros: small store.
Cons: short breaks, busy mall.
This store taught me most of the things I needed to know about retail, despite having worked it numerous times before. Although I did enjoy my time there, for the most part, I was in disagreement with the management for my particular store. I enjoyed everyone else I worked with.

The best part of the job was the down time with my coworkers.
The hardest – more... part was trying to play two roles. – less

Great productive workplace especially around the holidays!
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee), Syracuse, NYJanuary 6, 2014
Pros: all associates receive a 50% discount on any scented product!
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at work consists of assisting almost every customer, working the cashier, stocking candles, and unloading shipment. It was a fun paced job. During my time there I learned how to build a relationship with regular customers as well as compliment different fragrances with other scents as needed for the customer. The hardest part of the job – more... was trying to help every customer with their specific needs and that was also the enjoyable part of the job as well. When I know what I'm doing at a job I stick with it and it becomes enjoyable to me not just another task. – less

The most pleasant smelling environment to work in.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee), Liverpool, NYJanuary 3, 2014
Pros: 50% off discount on all fragrances
Yankee Candle had the best training program I have ever had at any job I have worked at. I gained so much valuable information to help me with my job.

Everyone was very pleasant to work with, the guests were easy to communicate with because we all had something in common--our love of Yankee Candles.

The hardest part of the job was when business was – more... slow and there was no clean up, restocking to do. It's very tiring doing nothing while waiting for guests to arrive. – less

Worked here for 9+ years and really like the company. Hardest part is the hours can sometimes be daunting and you don't get to spend quality time with your family.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Lafayette, LADecember 3, 2013
At YANKEE CANDLE CO. I was responsible for meeting daily sales goals. I learned the retail work environment which was a very grea learning experience. The manager of the store at the time had walked out. As a result, corporate had stepped in for a while to manage the store (I was hired by them). The rules were very strict which was not an issue for – more... me being I am a professional person at all times. – less

Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OHNovember 13, 2013
There are two main shifts within this company. On an opening shift, the manager arrives, prepares daily paperwork, writes emails, counts the safe, and make sure the store is visually ready to open. As a manager you do manage up to six employees. When you close, it is the duty of the manager to make sure registers are counted, prepare daily deposit, – more... and make sure store is fully stocked for the next morning. – less
