    Pros

    Discount and free jeans upon hire

    Cons

    NO Hours... I've worked retail before but never have I had an employer give me 5 hours and 1 on call. No one at this store gets hours. There's a staff of 30+ people. Most people have 0 hours every week and one on call shift. There may be opportunity to grow but not at this specific location. How can you grow when you work 5- hours?

    Advice to Management

    Let people know when you hire them how many hours you give. In CHICAGO young women work and also pay rent. Don't mislead hires or lie and don't post "hiring" adds on Craigslist when 15+ people only have on call shifts that are never used.

    I have been working at Madewell part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Sweet discount at Madewell AND J. Crew
    Flexible scheduling
    Awesome staff
    Promotion from within (I know at least two people who have moved to corporate although they started in the retail division

    Cons

    On calls are the worst
    They will cancel your shift if they are not receiving enough customer volume
    Overstaffed at times

    Advice to Management

    Hire only when necessary. No sense in overstaffing and spreading everyone's hours so thin. Sure, "business is business" but don't forget employees depend on their wages to pay living expenses!
