    Pros

    Nothing good to say about working here

    Cons

    Management treat you like dirt, they dont even care about you, all they want is their money. No benefits at all since ive worked there, most stuff are also stuck up and dont want to even talk to you unless your a customer. Didnt enjoy it at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care for you workers as well as management team, they are just as important to the business

    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
