    I worked at J. Crew part-time

    Pros

    Positive work environment, great support and training from superiors, lots of entry-level autonomy, and wonderful discounts.

    Cons

    I guess working late nights or on Saturdays sometimes? They try to accommodate your schedule though.

    I have been working at J. Crew

    Pros

    Great managers, flexible hours, laid back environment, great perks, motivated individuals. Definitely one of the best J.Crews that I have worked at

    Cons

    Can be slow, sometimes a lot of mindless tasks, but really not a lot cons. If you are looking to work in retail I highly suggest J.Crew Malibu

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My only advice would be to J.Crew corporate to give the store even more collection pieces like cashmere and specialty items to really cater to the Malibu audience.

    Pros

    -J. Crew brings a mix of high fashion and classics to the retail store making all trends accessible to the every day working woman/man
    -The clientele is sophisticated and respectful, but in turn expect high quality customer service from store associates
    -The employee discount is VERY generous
    -Management is on top of store standards, but is also very realistic and relatable

    Cons

    -No corporate offices on the West Coast
    -Unless you want to go into retail management, there is not that much growth opportunities for me, past Sales Associate

    Pros

    I really liked working here because you get commission for your sales. The managers are very kind and loving, the work environment didn't really feel like work. It felt like you're in a room full of family.

    Cons

    The hours were very little

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with all the good work
