I have been working at Crate and Barrel part-time (more than an year)

Pros

- I held on to this job through my last 2 years of college. They're great with working around my school schedule.

-The people there are great. I'm friends with just about all of my coworkers. This is the best part of the job.

- Pay is fine, enough for me to pay rent while at school.

- A lot of my coworkers have been at this store for 5 years or more. They like it and if they stay this long the store must be doing something right.

Cons

- Some Managers are great and others can be... not so great. You get some that don't understand how to interact with the different parts of the store (stock room versus the sales floor).

- It's retail. Holiday season is rough, extra hours when you want to be home with your family, crazy busy work days, high stress in a time when I want to relax.

- One of my pros can be a con. The fact that so many people stay so long scares me. I don't want to work in retail my whole life and I see people that get stuck there. It's a comfortable, easy fun job that can result in you being stuck in a retail position for years and years. Thats more of a personal problem I guess.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understand how both parts of the store work (stock room and sales floor). Know what each part is capable of and when they need support.

    I have been working at Crate and Barrel part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Products you can believe in
    Fun-loving co-workers
    Opportunities for growth
    Higher than average pay for retail

    Cons

    Management is overloaded and too busy to regularly check-in with staff at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who want to stay with the company over the long-term! Students who work at C&B part-time are less likely to bring a dedication and focus to the job and instead just "show up."
