    Pros

    Great team to work with and the discount for employees is very generous - applies to Madewell, J.Crew, and J.Crew Mercantile.

    Cons

    There aren't many other part time workers so it can be hard to switch shifts if conflicts come up.

    Great Place to Work

    Pros

    My coworkers really made the job worth it and the discount was pretty good as well. Overall, I felt positively about the company culture.

    Cons

    I didn’t enjoy having to pitch the “Madewell Insider” program, especially when we were extremely busy ringing people up. In addition, mostly around peak seasons (back to school, holidays) the clientele could be very entitled and rude. Obviously this had more to do with individuals and not the company but the clothing could be pricey and the people buying that price point of clothing were not always compassionate people (interpret that as you wish).
