    I worked at J. Crew part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great job for those interested in fashion and customer service. Fast paced, great employee discount of up to 60% off on a certain amount of numbers of products a month.

    Cons

    Pay not fantastic, hours were highly variable, especially during summer hours. Some commission made which was a disadvantage if shift was on the register.
