Working atCrate & Barrel is ike working in a candy store with a large group of neat people in a really chic environment.

Merchandising Associate (Current Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

ProsGreat products, good people, great discount. Reasonable and friendly management. Good Times!

Cons4 years = $9.71 /hr., snobby customers (that's it, really!)

Advice to Senior ManagementThe stockroom reorganization and merchandise reorganization has taken far too long to implement. There should have been a very clear, concise action to move and reorient the stock room. The design of each store's stockroom move should have been coordinated with the store management first - before one new home was made or label was changed.
As a construction project manager in my primary work I have survived the last year of stockroom changes with my mind intact, but it really took some work. A whole reclassification of the company's inventory and physical changes to the stockroom right before Christmas? That was brave. To not have a fully coordinated system ready before moving from the old system? Brash, I think. Perhaps more intra-organizational planning beforehand.

I do love my job, though, and thank you for it!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
