    I worked at Crate & Barrel part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working environment was very friendly, product is beautiful and it is a great learning experience. Very flexible with scheduling and time off.

    Cons

    Sometimes there aren't many customers during certain times of the year so they give fewer hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope you continue to train employees on product information and selling tips. Being confident with the product is important.

    I have been working at Crate & Barrel

    Pros

    Beautiful store great light. Good location.

    Cons

    To be promoted must be part of the "in crowd". The lower management do not even follow the established rules and protocol. They do what they feel is fair even though it may be against the rules They do not have good management skills nor do they educate themselves in management styles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who have management training Hire from out side the store or promote people who are qualified from within not your friends.
