Former Contractor - Crew Member

hours long for thee pay

Former Employee - Customer Service Associate

I worked at Madewell part-time

Pros

The hours were flexible and the more tenured staff really took the time to teach everyone. Even though it gets busy, it is a very encouraging and uplifting place to work!

Cons

As it is in many retail jobs, the hours are not always consistent, but that is controlled at a higher up level.
