Associate Manager (Former Employee), georgia – March 29, 2014
This company was not at all fair. Management expected to do everything, all the work, cleaning bathrooms, etc... Store director did nothing. A long day, no breaks. Horrible hours, all weekends..Low pay for Management. Horrible raises. Terrible accountability system. If you receive complaints, you are in trouble. If you receive compliments, no thank – more... you's. No incentives for Management. Too many rules. Horribly unfair HR in New York. Brand is overpriced and not exciting any longer. – less
Packing Associate (Former Employee), Lynchburg, VA – March 9, 2014
Pros: nice people
Cons: un-paid short breaks
Typical days at work would consist of packing boxes with clothes. I learned how to work individually and prioritize everything with my own self motivation. The management as well as my co-workers were both very easy-going and not difficult to get along with.
Productive and fun place to work with a high associate ownership, accountability and level of support.

The most productive teams and places to work. J. Crew allows personal skills to come to the forefront while developing talent to be industry leaders. Best experience for growing talent and skills in retail!
Sales Support (Former Employee), Aventura, FL – February 17, 2014
J crew was a pretty mellow but hard working place my first Job in Florida so I had a lot of adjusting to do as far as Traveling, the people, and environment. I was mainly in the stock room taking care of shipment and organizing the clothes and also maintaining the floor from time to time, when asked upon I would also be on the sales floor helping customers – more... and taking care of Cashier duties. Management was decent, co-workers were pretty professional and hardworking I worked well them. The hardest part of the Job was just getting used to the distance I was fresh in the area so I had a hard time getting there, and the most enjoyable part was the discount we were given by the company to enjoy the wonderful cothes. – less

Cons: management don't care
With J.Crew don't think about advancement opportunities. If you are not young, you will never be hired. Put in applications over 10 times and never got an interview. Don't matter if you have experience. People come in and work 2 weeks and get hired if you are young and you know someone. They make you think everything is fine, then get canned for some – more... stupid reason and you did not even know anything was wrong. Will go on unemployment before I would ever work for them again. Supervisors are sneaky and can let you go without giving their name. Management don't care about their employees only themselves. God sees everything when they treat people wrong. Management need to be careful that the same thing does not happen to them. – less
Associate (Former Employee), Destin, FL – January 30, 2014
With J.Crew there is no work/life balance and dont even think about advancement opportunities they dont exist. The discount is worth nothing as a customer you have a better deal. Upper management dont care about there employees only themselves. Benefits suck!
Client Specialist (Former Employee), Lynchburg, VA – December 16, 2013
My typical day at J.Crew consisted of me answering calls and filling out customer orders. My supervisors were always patient but always stressed soliciting J.Crew Credit Cards on our customers - that part of the job was easily my least favorite. The most enjoyable part was being able to help customers with picking out gifts or finding the perfect shoes – more... to go with their outfit. It was always very rewarding when customers were extremely thankful for my assistance. – less
