I worked at J. Crew full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The employee discount was great. It was a fun place to work, depending on who the store manager was. The pay was really good when I started. I believe that, since that time, they've lowered the pay.

Cons

If you had a bad store manager, it literally affected the entire store. I didn't enjoy having to tell people when I was leaving the floor to go to the restroom. It felt a little like elementary school.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees like grown-ups, please.

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

    Pros

    I loved the discounts. That was the only reason why I loved working there. Cute but expensive clothes. I believe it was 30% discount on top of the current promo they're offering. You get paid every Friday so you don't have to wait two weeks for your paycheck to come.

    Cons

    Hours fluctuate every week, there was never set hours. A lot of on calls, I always had around 3 on calls. It was hard to plan my day because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of hiring more people, give your current employees more hours instead.

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

    Pros

    J.Crew is a great company to work for! They have opportunity to move up a lot within the call centers and the training really prepares you. You have the empowerment to make decisions without having to ask management always, which leaves you able to help your customer in the best way.

    Cons

    J.Crew's peak season can get a little insane.
