    Pros

    Great part time position with flexible hours and generous employee discount. Wonderful team to work with because of the leadership. The Store Director for Round Rock is a seasoned leader, ethical and transparent. She has a proven track record of hiring the right people that share the same qualities.

    Cons

    Please introduce a variety of women’s petite clothing options at the store.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at J. Crew part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Employee discount Hourly pay rate better than most retailers Coworkers

    Cons

    Cliques Preferential treatment for favorites Not promoting from within Room for advancement Over hiring of unqualified people High expectations for low pay or no incentives Demanding and difficult customers Hours restricted to 29 or less per week for part-timer No benefits/healthcare

    Advice to Management

    Visit stores more to stay in touch with reality. Make fewer products to save money instead of cutting hours. Update technology to keep up with the demands of the business. Train and promote from within . Put more value in your long term employees. More diversity at the corporate level
