    Corporate headed in the wrong direction - focused too much on numbers and not enough on their people.

    Go back to promoting from within! Company culture is lost right now.

    I worked at Crate and Barrel part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Flexible, parking, friendly associates, discount if you like the merchandise.

    Cons

    Stressful part time job, customer satisfaction is lady on the list, it’s all about making money, hardly any training, managed by people afraid about their job security by intimidating associates.

    Advice to Management

    You can’t control what is happening in retail because of on line competition, don’t take it on your employees, it’s only a part time job with hardly any benefits.

        I have been working at Crate and Barrel full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        Health benefits are better than average. Best I've ever had.

        Cons

        Low pay compared to market average, and annual raises are minimum amount. Behind on corporate culture of flexible hours/work from home or any flex benefits. Senior management changes often, making it impossible to have consistency. Sr. Management makes quick decision without thinking all aspects through, so in turn, the lower corporate teams suffer to work out all the details. Cross-functional collaboration is very poor,...
