    I worked at J. Crew part-time

    Pros

    I worked as a seasonal employee for almost four years and loved my time there. Even in an individual store they make sure you feel connected and up to date with the whole company. They are constantly finding new ways to motivate employees and improve customer service.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to get any sort of salary raise or change of position, particularly if you are part-time or seasonal.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at J. Crew (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    20 minutes, pretty informal, I sat down with a manager and we talked for a while. She interviewed me and asked me if I had any questions, I had a few prepared. I asked about specific job duties, holiday schedules, informed her about an upcoming professional obligation at my full-time job to give her a heads up.
