    Pros

    Great people, great company.

    I have been working at J. Crew part-time

    Pros

    I love working at J.Crew! They offer a great discount for their employees. I have awesome co-workers and I work with a great management team. Very easy and fun work engaging with people and required tasks are not difficult.

    Cons

    Getting consistent part-time hours are not guaranteed. Sometimes it is slow at the mall and that makes shifts go by slowly, but overall great time!

    Advice to Management

    None - I think management does a great job of working with their employees and communicating well with them. They all work together really well and they enjoy what they do so that makes me want to work hard as well!

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

    Pros

    Great work culture
    No micromanagement
    Great benefits

    Cons

    Substantially underpays
    No employee recognition
    High turnover
    Overburdens employees

    Advice to Management

    People are quitting left and right (or, you're firing them in lassive waves) but there's no effort being madevto replace them. The corporate structure is wacky (I've never seen a company with a "Chief Transformation Officer" in my life) and you have the people at the bottom of the ladder doing the work of 5 people. Career outlook is grim here, because the company may well not be around long enough for you to climb the ladder

    I have been working at J. Crew part-time

    Pros

    J Crew has no strict dress code, the employee discounts are really great, the managers are well-trained and prepared to drive sales while maintaining a positive attitude

    There are blackout dates for holidays meaning that most employees can't even request time off for several federal holidays
