    I have been working at J. Crew full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management rewards hard workers, and appreciates them.
    Raises are based on performance, so work hard and get more money.

    Cons

    The only way to move up in the company is to become a keyholder and go from there, which even still, you are stuck in a keyholder position for years before being able to make any growth in the company,
    Corporate is always coming up with something crazy for employees.
    Corporate has unrealistic expectations of how the stores are to be run because none of them have ever worked in a store.

    Advice to Management

    Train people right, from the beginning and they'll be no problems.

    I worked at J. Crew full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing employee discount, enjoyable store atmosphere, the best client base.

    Cons

    Too much micromanaging from the corporate level. Too many directives and not enough freedom for managers to do what they feel is right for their store. Little incentives: taking away commissioned sales.

    Advice to Management

    Manage according to the needs of your store. Cities with low salary demographics require extra efforts such as elevated customer service as opposed to cities where J.Crew is so well known that it sells itself. I find it absurd that my store director would prefer that I fold clothes over assisting customers, but she did.
