I have been working at J. Crew full-time for more than a year

Pros

20 days pto given every year plus 6 holidays and great benefits
Easy going company that promotes internal growth
Support by corporate, always getting thank yous and chocolate baskets which was a nice surprise.

Cons

Not much. New product collections once a month means one overnight a month. Visuals are constantly changing which makes for a large workload.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The managers are what can make or break a team so make sure you get along with them

    I have been working at J. Crew part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The comany itself is a very good place to work for, and the discount is great. I like that for a retail job they work with you pretty well when you need time off or a schedule change. Everyone is very nice I like all of my co-workers.

    Cons

    It all depends on who your managers are whether you'll enjoy it or not. I think it's pretty easy to advance to different positions but at some places it depends on who you are not necessarily what you can do or have done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at J. Crew part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work environment was great and the people were so friendly. I liked all of my managers and they were very good in training me. I did have retail experience already when working there though.

    Cons

    As a sales associate, you really don't get more than ten hours a week. The only people that get full time hours are the managers and personal shoppers. This is nice if you are working there while you are going to school, or as a second job to supplement income, but it was my job for the summer, and I was always begging people to send unwanted hours my way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if part time workers could get more hours.
