Pros

They provide performance metrics for you. Managers religiously check in with you and make sure you know your sales goals. They are willing to work with you to improve performance.

Cons

Some managers are starkly better than others. GMs need do a better job educating other key holders and managers on developing interpersonal skills.

    Pros

    Company has awesome HR policies in place. 1-800 number to report anything. Pay is decent. Easy to move up. No complaints from corporate level management.

    Cons

    Regional management was overly intimidating and practiced a "mean girls" attitude. Clothing prices are high company wide is part of the J. Crew world, in particular for my store's location the mall was not high end enough. Toward the end of my employment another store was opened up at a nearby high end mall and took away all our regular clientele. The drop in sales lowered team morale and as a result regional management started pressuring the store more and more. It felt like the nearby store was strategically opened to close our location down, like we were being set up for failure.

    Advice to Management

    Implement better ways to manage the regional-level management. It might have been smarter to give the current location an opportunity to re-locate instead of opening an entirely new location. Be honest and don't play games with people's livelihoods.
