I worked at J. Crew part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Amazing discounts. Regular priced items all 30% off, sale stuff is 50%, and every week there's a list of stuff that's 60% off. The employees there are good people too.

Cons

On-call shifts. You can't plan to do something on a scheduled on-call shift day because you might work and you'll only know 2 hours ahead of time (of your shift). The hours are sooo inconsistent. Part time I was hoping for ~20 hours, instead some weeks I'd only work 6 hours others only 12. They don't care about part-time employees. Horrible commission too. Only .05%!

    I worked at J. Crew as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people here are great and there is a lot of interaction between departments. The senior executives, for the most part, interact with all levels and show their faces throughout the work week.

    Cons

    If you don't ask, they will not tell. As a freelancer you have to be very pushy in order to be "in the know". Often times freelancers are snubbed.

    I have been working at J. Crew part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The atmosphere is really laid-back and the corporate culture is that your experience really depends on your store director.

    Cons

    They don't pay alot. Even if you're a respected employee. They are tight with their store hours/budget.
