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

    Pros

    Great co-workers for the most part

    Amazing employee discount

    Cons

    Difficult to move up in company

    There are sales goals without any extra compensation

    Too many part time employees

    Advice to Management

    If there's going to be sales goals, offer commission.

    Everybody understands retail is struggling, so it would be better to have fewer part time employees and give more hours to associates with good sales numbers.

    Pros

    Paid time off is decent although it used to be 40% more ......

    Management lacks training and people skills. End result is a "get it done" directive with no knowledge on how to advise or support.

    Put some effort into selecting managers that know how to lead .

    Pros

    Amazing discount offered. You're able to socialize with a lot of people.

    Cons

    Compensation is low for the amount of work and compared to many retailers out there. 8 hours a day on your feet, destroys your knees.

    Pros

    Fun, fast paced environment. They promote professionalism and training.

    Cons

    no consequences for anything. As a manager, this made it impossible to not allow the staff to walk all over you. If you are looking for a place to never get fired, this is your place. Aside from stealing. I had a higher level manager tell me once that even if you murdered someone in the store, corporate would only allow you to have a sit down conversation where you would only be able to ask, "do you think that was the right thing to do?"

    Advice to Management

    implement structure to the weekly routine. While payroll may be tight, it will only help the store run more efficiently to have a routine
