Good place to work

Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsFriendly environment; Management is in charge but still easy to speak to; nice discount; decent salary

ConsNo cons to speak of; it was a good place to work

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the friendly environment. I found that my seasonal work at Crate to be enjoyable. The work was pretty easy and the fact that the company emphasizes the customer experience so much make sit so that the caliber of the customer is higher. Management is selective about who they hire to work in the stores, even seasonal workers, and therefore the people who work in each store have certain attributes that make them suitable to work there. Overall, I had an excellent experience working at Crate.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Why fix something that ain't broke, fine tune it but don't destroy the mission ....

    Pt Sales (Former Employee)
    Tigard, OR

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


    Pros: Sales staff and the Supporting role staff are beyond expectations. 13 of us left the Tigard store in… Cons: current store managers were promoted without serious forethought about building a team and executing the new vision. It's not a trade secret to lead you… Advice to Senior Management: Rotate management, promoting within needs to be at a regional… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
