    I worked at Madewell part-time

    Pros

    I worked at multiple locations and loved my experience at each one. I think the company attracts a really awesome type of girl- creative, genuine, interested. Made coming to work every day something I looked forward to! Not to mention the company is fantastic and does a great job fostering a upbeat, positive brand and workplace.

    Cons

    The discount is misleading. It got better as I left but they do big sales so often sometimes it's like the employee discount isn't any better than what the public gets. Also, this isn't a Madewell specific thing, but like any retail job the hours can suck.

    Pros

    Good discount on clothing and items

    Company wide management is terrible. I’ve never met such condescending and verbally abusive managers.
