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

    Pros

    Good discount- 60% list every week, 50% 6 full-priced items a month (but must be able to wear to work), extra 50% off sale, and 30% all the time
    Managers are relatively easy-going
    Nice Co-workers for the most part

    Cons

    3rd party items are mostly excluded from the discounts, unless it's on sale.
    There are some overnight shifts which are really exhausting to work and not worth it.
    Some managers can be passive aggressive. And you can tell some definitely has their favorites
