I have been working at Crate and Barrel part-time

Pros

Discount and Team and some product.

Cons

I have worked here over a lot of years, was full time making a great salary 1800 a month but when my store changed location 7 of us were told our choice was either be severance and leave or received severance, stay and lose benefits. This was due to not needing full time in the position. Lost only a dollar off my hourly could survive still until following year when the rest of the company caught up and everyone drastically lost money. Company lost a lot of employees. Struggling to make it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop making comments that people who have worked there a long time should not get paid more then someone who is newly hired. When you know it's inappropriate stop trying to convince yourself that it is right.

    I have been working at Crate and Barrel full-time (more than 8 years)

    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.
