I have been working at Crate and Barrel part-time

Pros

Discount and Team and some product.

Cons

I have worked here over a lot of years, was full time making a great salary 1800 a month but when my store changed location 7 of us were told our choice was either be severance and leave or received severance, stay and lose benefits. This was due to not needing full time in the position. Lost only a dollar off my hourly could survive still until following year when the rest of the company caught up and everyone drastically lost money. Company lost a lot of employees. Struggling to make it.

Advice to Management

Stop making comments that people who have worked there a long time should not get paid more then someone who is newly hired. When you know it's inappropriate stop trying to convince yourself that it is right.

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

    Pros

    30% discount is the ONLY PRO
    Although I must admit I became good friends with SELECT FEW employees due to all the CATTINESS/FAVORITISM in the workplace

    Cons

    low pay
    poor management
    no room for advancement
    your opinion doesn't count
    a lot of the managers and upper managers are family/friends who show favoritism to CLIQUES

    Advice to Management

    everyone needs to be FIRED and rethink the entire WOW customer experience; that's why a lot of stores are operating in the RED and losing lots of MONEY due to policies THAT ARE CLEARLY NOT WORKING. This WOW customer experience is creating the customer who ALWAYS wants a discount!!!!
