    I worked at J. Crew part-time for more than a year

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the on-call shifts!!!

    I worked at J. Crew part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    To 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.

    Cons

    At 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 ManagementAdvice

    Upper 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.
