Fun to work for up and till these last few months, weeks and years

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Sandy Springs, Fulton, GA

ProsCoworkers are great to work with. Very helpful to each other. Great discount structure based on every 5 years.

ConsNew company structure has bankrupt employees with longevity. Lost of full time status and lost of wages and hours. Pay you less but expect full time work from the individual. Not caring that this is stressful to the individual. The old owner Gordon Segal have every thought in his mind to wow the associate as well as the customer. The new administration wants only to wow the customer and have done nothing but take away from the associates. Before, the company would promote all individuals regardless of ethnicity. This company talks diversity but doesn't practice it.

Advice to Senior ManagementStand up for your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: Great discount based on longevity and if you have and if you have an outlet sore near you its fantastic. … Cons: The company has taken a spiral downhill since being purchase by the German company The Otto Group (former owners of Eddie Bauer & Spiegel) … Advice to Senior Management: Respect your employees. They are PEOPLE that are bright,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Shockingly Badly Managed

    Full Time Sales (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    I worked at Crate & Barrel full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Good products in a showroom type setting Cons: The management team across the whole of C&B are shockingly lacking in management skills. Recent initiatives 'to improve the bottom line' have ripped the heart… Advice to Senior Management: Retrain! No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
