I worked at J. Crew

Pros

- The company invests in its employees
- Understands that sales people are brand representatives and therefore treat them well.

Cons

- The company is so big that different stores can have different atmospheres and can be managed a bit differently.
- I worked in two stores and I was not treated very well in one of them.

    I have been working at J. Crew part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    J. Crew Management obviously knows how to pick the right people to work for them. The employees are exceptionally wonderful to work with. Everyone is friendly, helpful and there is a great sense of team work. Employees are cross trained in everything, stock, cashier, sales and cleaning the store.

    Cons

    Way underpaid. This is the first high end brand I've worked for that paid $8.50 an hour. Discounts are ok, but if you are only scheduled less than twenty hours a week, it doesn't help to buy anything because you're not getting nearly enough.

    You will learn a ton, but feel like you're in a pressure cooker the whole time.
