I worked at Crate and Barrel part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Co-workers, decent salary for retail.

Cons

Most changes made in the past year have been nullified.
Once again, top heavy with management.
Merchandise quality and design not very appealing.

Advice to Management

Decide what the vision is and stick to it!

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

    Pros

    Friendly environment; Management is in charge but still easy to speak to; nice discount; decent salary

    Cons

    No cons to speak of; it was a good place to work

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the friendly environment. I found that my seasonal work at Crate to be enjoyable. The work was pretty easy and the fact that the company emphasizes the customer experience so much make sit so that the caliber of the customer is higher. Management is selective about who they hire to work in the stores, even seasonal workers, and therefore the people who work in each store have certain attributes that make them suitable to work there. Overall, I had an excellent experience working at Crate.
