    I have been working at J. Crew part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Environment, all about the customer, friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Low hours, not-so-great management, ON-CALL shifts, schedule, low commission

    Advice to Management

    Instead of the employee having to call in two hours before their shift to see if they need you, they should call you. My store is small, I must admit, but a 4 hour week with 1 associate working with a manager is really tough and lack-of-motivation inspiring. Yeah, sales will look good on the individual- but the store won't look nice because you're too busy selling hence the low amount of employees working.

    The managers and co-workers are really nice. I have a pleasure working with everyone. Although there are still people I've barely worked with and I've been with the company for 10 months.

    Also, my store has gone through 5 managers the past 8 months. It's been hectic.

    There should be away to obtain your work schedule online instead of having to go into the store to get it. They won't even give it to you over phone unless it's completely necessary.

    Discount is nice, but I never get to use it because I don't make enough money from the job to be able to spend it on.

    I did get a raise, which was nice. It was low, but it's the thought that counts.

    If you want to work here, do not depend on this to be your only job. You'll be grateful if you get a 10 hour week.
