I have been working at Crate and Barrel part-time (More than a year)Doesn't RecommendPositive OutlookDisapproves of CEODoesn't RecommendPositive OutlookDisapproves of CEO
The coworkers are the best anywhere, perhaps their perceptions are as blurred as mine. Most of the associates just "go through the motion" to get the job done.
Management is the worst I've ever experienced. A monkey can do their job. The have NO compassion for the people that are making the company money and it is as if they are on another level above and beyond the "underdog" slave help that they hire and they know it. Management means being able to deal with not only customer issues, but more importantly, employees. I'm not sure what qualifications it takes to become management at Crate, but I'm sure it doesn't include compassion for the company and it's associates. Lets not forget that Crate has been sued for several class action lawsuits!!! That alone says something about the scruples of the company. The employees yearly revues are a joke. The minute you sit down they make it perfectly clear that they only base your performance on a "meets" standard performance even though they give you a form to fill out for you to rate yourself....it's a joke. I was awarded "associate of the quarter" which means that most of those that I worked with thought I went above and beyond to do my job well but it means nothing when the review is underway. After one year of hardworking, commited service I was awarded a .27 cent raise, I almost fell off my chair. I'll have to wait another year to hopefully get another .27 cents. NOT A CAREER CHOICE BUY ANY MEANS.
