I worked at J. Crew part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The best reason that to work at J.Crew was the cool people you meet. It is such a good work environment that has great benefits and pay.

Cons

The overnights that stock had were pretty painful to deal with.

Advice to Management

Upper management needs to learn to have a chill button sometimes. They can take their power over board very rarely.

    I worked at J. Crew full-time

    Pros

    Company has very friendly people, especially in the corporate office and they know how to treat their employees. There are great benefits and pretty good salaries for lower-skilled positions.

    Cons

    There is not much room for movement here and many people have been there for many years. Most upper-level management are "traded" from other retailers and putting in your time may only be worth the promotion if you don't mind not learning anything new. J.Crew is classically caught in the retail day-to-day, zero-hindsight issues of planning and reacting.

    Advice to Management

    Stop constantly changing direction with strategy and have good longterm plans.


  2. If you just need a job to make extra money this is okay, but wouldn't suggest as a main source of income.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at J. Crew full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The job itself is seriously easy, so you don't have to worry about thinking to much.

    Cons

    It's very hot in the warehouse and the job is very monotonous. The floor is very hard and your feet hurt a lot I just didn't find it was worth the little money you get per hour.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more money to work here. I think it probably cost more money in man hours to increase a price $2.
