    I worked at Madewell part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Spent quite a few years here off and on, was a key holder for a bit. Overall probably one the better experiences I could have had working in retail. Most of the managers at my store were amazing people, but I will say in a corporate sense I feel like the company could do more to show they care about their employees. My particular store had great relationships with local businesses that we partnered with which was great and truly had so much fun working here.

    Cons

    Occasional late nights/super early mornings for rollout. Had a couple managers that weren’t so great but that was more of a personality issue than a company issue. Sometimes felt like they wanted me to make madewell my entire life when I was only part time. Company has had financial issues for quite some time

    I worked at Madewell part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Most of the customers are really kind and fun to work with

    Cons

    The managers that I worked with were incompetent and sometimes petty. They did not care about the employees who were not in their "clique". The store had major hourly cutbacks so usually, the part-time employees would only get around 15 hours of work per week.

    I worked at Madewell part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked there for two years and was quickly pushed to the top. Started as a seasonal. Everyone was always nice to me and if you ever worked in food- this job is like moving in slow motion. Easy money.

    Cons

    While I always had a positive experience- wasn’t the same for everyone. In a predominantly white town- you can guess who got picked on. There was definitely favoritism. I always pushed for open talk (Madewells version of HR) however, I soon learned that investigations could easily be manipulated. That is definitely a problem depending on the store and not a problem within all stores. However, a problem that is within all stores is pay. There were $10 differences between people with the same job and same work ethic. Some associates are making more than management. So if you’re working for the discount (40% always, 60% for 5 items), this con won’t matter. But even if you’re a part-time student- you deserve equal and fair pay. And don’t let your manager tell you that you don’t.

    I worked at Madewell part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great discounts offered to employees

    Cons

    As a part-time worker, you are SUPER part-time. Most weeks my coworkers and I got about 10-15 hours a week. Also a lot of favoritism. No room for growth.
