I worked at Crate and Barrel full-time (more than a year)

Pros

I saw opportunities to grow with the company. Everyone was given the chance to continue to learn and grow with the company

Cons

The pay rate wasn't great and even though I was given a small raise and offered a full time position however, the money wasn't sufficient to sustain my life.

  1. Great place to work at. Nice pay for retail, work with good people. Allows you to have your own personality.

    Pros

    Even though you do have to work weekends, it is only one weekend day/night. Saturday Nights you are out of there by 8.

    Cons

    Customers can be rather rude and Corporate CS seems to side with them far too often. Some members of former management played favorites and were not supportive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train seasonals better. Train them to succeed and not set them up for failure.

    Pros

    The people you work with are great. Customer service is very important. Product is made well and they stand behind their product.

    Cons

    Culture is not the same since Gordon left. No room to advance with the new structure. You used to be able to have an opinion but not anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Morale is not good. Start talking to the people in the stores again.
