    I worked at J. Crew part-time

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits e.g. discounts - good hours too.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a serious job that puts a lot of pressure on selling a certain amount each day, then this is the job for you. Managers put ALOT of stress on you as they get a lot of stress from their managers.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. Informative meetings about seasonal trends and company updates. Brilliant discounts for employees. Supportive management (oftentimes they brought snacks to share).

    Hectic schedule for part-time employees. No pay for on-call days. Cut hours due to slow sales days. Quality depreciation made it more challenging for customers to buy/keep the merchandise and harder to hit sales goals.
