    I have been working at Crate and Barrel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone really cares about our customers and providing the best possible experience for them. We work as a team and try to listen to understand issues that need to be resolved. Crate is also a great environment to work in!

    Cons

    Keeping up with technology in supply chain is a major issue. We are still using the AS 400 system for the retail fulfillment which is outdated. We also need to reinvest in our material handling equipment and conveyor system.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to seek out improvement ideas from the teams at all locations.
