I worked at Madewell as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

High-end, boutique style atmosphere. Flexible hours. Great co-workers!

Cons

I was hired as a marketing intern but the woman I was supposed to be interning for did NOTHING with me in regards to marketing so I ended up just being a sales associate. Total let down.

Advice to Management

Do not hire someone as an intern if you have no intention of actually working with them on anything.

    I worked at Madewell part-time

    Pros

    The discounts-- You get discounts both at J. Crew AND at Madewell. The work environment is very positive and chill, and the dress code is not strict.

    Cons

    The only real con would be that of any retail store-- the stresses of constantly standing and helping customers (sometimes rude). I don't think that there are any cons specific to Madewell.

    Advice to Management

    I think that it would be helpful to have a co-worker bonding time so that we could get to know one another better rather than working individually on the sales floor and answering to the managers. With more cooperation among the workers, I feel that sales would go up.

    For the stores in NYC specifically,Why would you hire 90 plus part time employees when you can hire about 30 full time?
