    I have been working at J. Crew

    Pros

    The best part of working here is the discount. Though you can't make enough money to use it often

    Cons

    The hours are completely ridiculous.
    On-Call shifts are never used.
    Management talk about associates on the sales floor.
    Management treats associates with no respect.
    The sales techniques used by management are too aggressive and often scare customers away.
    The store is always a mess due to understaffing.
    Management often disregard or talk badly about upper management. e.g. Merchandising manager talking badly about design concepts, telling associates how ugly some of the clothes are, trying to cut corners.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really don't know where you find your management but just because somebody has experience or training does not mean they are qualified to be a manager. Being able to communicate with employees in a respectable manner is more important. Also having more employees so you can give them small shifts that are spread apart may be a fiscal benefit but the atmosphere of the actual stores suffer, and who wants to shop in a store where everybody working there hates it?

    I worked at J. Crew part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great discount, fashion forward product, overall I was satisfied with my job here.

    Cons

    As with all retail jobs, there are things to grunt and grumble about, but most are in reference to the customer base.
