    I have been working at Madewell part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Their clothes are great for basic outfits, but once they started pushing the whole color and pattern mix and match, it looked too grandma and thrifty… for paying $100 for a sheer button down.

    Cons

    The girls I worked with were awful. It was my first retail job so I was getting used to the whole idea of selling something someone doesn't need. They don't offer commission, but they do put you down and yell at you on the headsets if you aren't taking every second to push products into people's fitting rooms. Constant folding of EVERYTHING drove me crazy. It took about 2 hours to close every night. And on-calls were super dumb. Lack of brand identity.

    Advice to Management

    Don't yell on the headsets and don't talk about pushing products and meeting daily goals in FRONT of customers. SUPER rude.


  2. Good part-time gig? Mickey Drexler is AWESOME.
