    Good job in college

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) Arlington, VA

    ProsGreat discounts, friendly and fun staff, upbeat environment, and you get commission. I loved it!

    ConsThe on-call shifts are really annoying, and you basically have to be available if they need you, so its hard to make concrete plans.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the on-call shifts!!!

    Working for J.Crew was very enjoyable.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) Palm Beach Gardens, FL

    ProsTo gain a thorough understanding of the retail business. J.Crew is a great company to work for. The clothing and designs are good quality and very creative.

    ConsAt the particular J.Crew location I worked at the manager was letting personal issues affect her professional work environment. This had been a problem for some time and so after multiple employees spoke to upper management the issue was taken care of.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management was relatable and easy to talk to about any problems encountered. They also effectively handled over-bearing customers who looked to take advantage of employees.
