I worked at Crate and Barrel full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

All the employees are extremely nice and make you feel part of their team. The program is well organized and well rounded. I really learned a lot and enjoyed my experience.

Cons

Their interview process takes place a little later, so I had to wait till almost the summer to decide where I wanted to intern.

    I have been working at Crate and Barrel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There used to be a lot of pros... but now, the only thing above average about C&B is the employee discount and health/dental benefits.

    Cons

    This used to be a family oriented company until it was sold. Now it is just like any other retailer, concerned only with the bottom line, but a retailer that pays less than anywhere else. Managers are now the only salaried people in the stores... so guess who gets to work all the holidays and overtime without actually getting overtime...

    Advice to Management

    I completely understand that this a business... but most of the old timers that have been here for 10, 15, 20+ years.... I just can't believe that you're pushing them out the door... just sad to me.

    I worked at Crate and Barrel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Friendly environment, great employee discount and flexible with schedule.

    Cons

    Overall management cannot or will not acknowledge hard work or accomplishments unless its time for annual employee review. Favoritism is key to moving up in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair with your employees. Give opportunities to those who are not in the "Inner Circle". Recognize talent and leadership without being influenced by hearsay.
