    Pros

    Sweet discount at Madewell AND J. Crew
    Flexible scheduling
    Awesome staff
    Promotion from within (I know at least two people who have moved to corporate although they started in the retail division

    Cons

    On calls are the worst
    They will cancel your shift if they are not receiving enough customer volume
    Overstaffed at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire only when necessary. No sense in overstaffing and spreading everyone's hours so thin. Sure, "business is business" but don't forget employees depend on their wages to pay living expenses!

    I have been working at Madewell part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Really great discount that is valid at Madewell AND J.Crew stores
    Friendly work environment
    Madewell stores are clean and fresh-looking, and play good music (not too loud to drive you crazy on a long shift)-- fun, youthful vibe

    Cons

    On-call shifts (won't know if you need to come into work until 2hrs before the shift starts
    3 days notice on next week's schedule
    low hourly wage
    VERY few hours (even as a top associate at the store)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    NO On-call shifts. Use data to know when you need the most associates, and stick to that.
