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

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility, creative outlet, work from home, meaningful relationships, supportive community, amazing people. I still can't believe this job exists and I get paid to do what I do because it's just so amazing. I don't ever see myself quitting this job, whatever other things I may have going on the side.

    Cons

    Limited inventory can get challenging. But what's a job without challenges? Little time to catch up on non-styling things.

    Advice to Management

    Better inventory planning. Separate reading feedback time from reading communications time. Reading feedback time can change with hours styled; there should be at least an hour allocated for reading e-mails and communications.

    I worked at Stitch Fix part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone I interacted with was very positive from the interview through training and my team.

    Cons

    Once you get out of the training program, the expectations are high and you are required to complete a certain amount of Fixes every week and within your set hours regardless of whether the inventory is there or not. Didn't feel like I had the time or resources to truly send out Fixes that would satisfy each customer.

    I have been working at Stitch Fix part-time

    Pros

    Flexible shifts - you choose how many hours you will work each day.

    Cons

    Since the role is remote, it's difficult to forge relationships with others on my team.

    Pros

    Work remotely
    Choose your own hours/days
    Paid time off

    Cons

    Dealing with long lead time because everyone works on a different schedule

    Improve inventory and do a better job at outlining the business model to the clients.

    Don’t rely so heavily on metrics.

    Pros

    Work from home. 40% off.

    Cons

    The stylists are supposed to magically meet unrealistic expectations with their metrics using horrible inventory. Inventory is never enough to style the clients well. The inventory has gone from bad to worse since the company went public. You have to work off the clock to get work done within their metrics. You get one raise and one raise only of $1 more. I'm not kidding. There's no room for advancement unless you want to manage and those positions are limited. Management pretends to listen and makes no changes.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the stylists more! Give them the opportunity to make more. We make you so much money! Why hasn't the inventory issue been addressed honestly?

    Pros

    Create own schedule; flexible hours; remote

    Cons

    Styling can feel a bit repetitive because you are completing a fairly highly volume in a short amount of time

    Advice to Management

    Increase the "non-styling" time to 2 hours per week
