Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Bay City, MI – May 16, 2017
Continually recovering inventory due to messy customers. Majority of the customers expected a lot more out of the store even when very unnecessary. Also, sstore coupons are easily misunderstood by customers.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Grandville, MI – May 11, 2017
When I started at Yonkers, I was thrown out onto the sales floor with little training. I got hardly any hours,and the managers always gave attitude when you needed assistance or time off. I especially don't recommend to high school students. They are not flexible or willing to work around a busy schedule whatsoever.

This company is an absolute awful place to work. No training (except some time on a computer), outrageous expectations, low pay and extreme favoritism. Don't upset 'The favorite', or your life will be miserable. I'm so...glad I quit and ran. P.S. You can NEVER make the customers happy. They want everything for free. So much happier where I am now and making more money!!!!
Good place to work, some stress between co-workers

Overall, Younkers is a good place to work, some of the people at Younkers has their own "turf" and could be hard to fit in, The store overall is good and is a caring place to work, I would again part time if given the chance.

Although a few of the managers are nice most think they are better than you and look down on you. Most people will give up on trying after a couple weeks. They expect way to much out of everyone and keep scheduling less and less people. Most people hate their job.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Cedar Falls, IA – March 7, 2017
A typical day at work would include opening registers, engaging with clients, selling, and opening up credits. I learned a lot about retail they provided excellent training. Most enjoyable part was the co workers and team work we had going. The hardest part of the job was not being busy at certain times at night but then I was able to clean, fold, and make sure the store was nice.
Retail (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – March 5, 2017
Working at Younkers was my first time working at a retail store. I enjoyed every bit of it because I loved working with shoes. the customer weren't always the nicest but I dealt with them as I was told. The work environment was really good and managers were all nice to me.
A good place to work in an environment that was constantly changing.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Sioux City, IA – February 28, 2017
It was a pretty fun place to work. I enjoyed the constant flow of new people coming in from the mall. Most of the people there have been long term employees. It can be a lot of fun, but you must be able to multitask.
enjoyed the work but the store manager caused stress and unpleasantness
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – February 28, 2017
I enjoyed working at younkers for the most part. My direct supervisor was amazing because she set clear expectations and treated me with respect. I enjoyed helping customers, and I believe that I was able to gain a lot of useful transferable skills from this job. Although I had a positive experience with my coworkers, direct managers and customers, the store manager made it difficult to thrive. They created an on-edge type of environment that made the job unenjoyable.
Part Time Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Eau Claire, WI – January 25, 2017
It is a great job if you're a student because they were very flexible with their scheduling with me. The only negative thing would be the store I worked at was VERY understaffed. It was usually 2 girls on the whole woman's floor but it was a lot to keep up on when there was 4 wrap stands. A usual day would be assisting costumers, cashing them out, putting clothes in the right spot, cleaning the dressing rooms every 30 minutes, and doing returns/damages. Everyone one I worked with was amazing and the managers were understanding!
