I have been working at Crate and Barrel part-time (less than a year)

Pros

The people are great and the work place is is laid-back. While focused on sales like anywhere else, C&B does not make you upsell and is not goal-obsessed. Staff is pretty knowledgeable and really go above and beyond for customers. My managers also take the time to interact with me and there is a strong sense of community among the staff members for events like babies, birthdays, leaving, etc. I like that there is a large focus at Crate on really knowing your product. It makes it so the customer trusts you and so that you can really provide people with what they need.

Cons

Not much room for advancement--some inefficiencies is business operations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow long-term associates to advance.

    Pros

    My managers were pretty good at working with my school schedule. The display philosophy gives some leeway for creative expression.

    Cons

    Busy seasons like Christmas can create some really stressful situations and customer complaints. You work around a lot of breakable material so there is some danger there.

    Pros

    They genuinely care about their employees and customers. I haven't worked much retail, but I couldn't imagine having a better retail work environment than Crate & Barrel.

    Cons

    I honestly have no complaints, it's a great place (to shop AND work)!
