Review for Crate & Barrel

Part-Time Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

ProsThey are very flexible working around school schedules or extra activities you may have. There is a good relationship between management and their employees. They have very effective communication between upper management and store level employees with the direction they want the company to go.

ConsA downfall working at crate & barrel just like any other retail type jobs, people can become a click sometimes favortism happens. Also the company only promotes from within, which can take really long to move up within the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementI believe that management needs to watch themselves from having favortism, and talking about other employees to the favorite employee's. Also have more rotations for the floor associates to move to different departments and focus on all their employees development goals.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It was a great place to be exposed to a working environment for the first time.
