Manager (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – January 9, 2015
Was able to utilize the skills I've learned over the years with this company. Being employed with this company has allowed me to grow and learn more about being a leader as well as productive employee.
Good job if you already have a second job/OK with limited hours
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Troy, MI – May 13, 2016
It was a decent part-time job, but peak business is conducted from September to December and May-August. Shifts between these times are likely to get cut based on volume of business. The hours were my least favorite part of the job. No room to advance unless you sell an obnoxiously amount of merchandise. My experience with my coworkers and management team was great though. it would be ideal if you had a second job for more income.
Store Lead (Former Employee) – Asheville, NC – May 1, 2016
I would open the store every morning typically. Count all the registrars every morning. Then see who was working for the day , make a daily schedule assigning associates there duty that day. I would sometimes work the register. We got shipments twice a week I would go through the shipments and fill the sales in where things were looking empty. My coworkers were cool I didn't like how cozy the manager was with the associates some were a bit lazy and that was the hard part to deal with for me. Besides that I loved It!
You come in with PTO you don't have to work there forever to get it
I worked in the J. Crew's men's department store that had just opened in Coral Gables . It was right next to my University and I worked there on a part time basis. The experience was great and I learned about the public relations aspects .
warehouse line assembly/packer (Former Employee) – Lynchbrug – April 7, 2016
great place to work, good hours, great co workers and always on your feet. Management is always assertive to the job related needs of employees. Everyone practices good team work and the work itself isn't very overwhelming at all.
weekly pay, good workers with good attitudes and always a room to advance.
Merchandise Processor (Former Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – March 30, 2016
I worked as a seasonal associate for J Crew during their peak season. Officially my title was merchandise processor. I went through training as a picker, a person who takes the clothes off the shelves when they are ordered, and in training I was 99.9% accurate. This led to an immediate reassignment, a promotion of sorts, to the more prestigious jewelry preparation area. I prepared and boxed jewelry that had been ordered so it could be sent to customers. I was in this position from mid-November until mid-January. When a more senior associate was not present, I was in charge of this area, typically two days a week. Once in January I was allowed to work on my own with no other associates present, a gesture of the company's trust that I would do what was required without supervision.
Great co-workers and management. Helpful and friendly atmosphere with very flexible schedule. I have a four year old daughter with whom I love spending my free time. Having this job allowed me the opportunity to work during the day and be home with her in the afternoons and weekends. Unfortunately this was only a temporary position through a staffing agency.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Rosemont, IL – March 21, 2016
Typical day at work involves a positive attitude and great customer service skills. I learned to use the new software for cashiers and cash handling. The management was excellent, there was good communication and planning prior to shifts. My co-workers were fun however competitive. The hardest part of the job was managing inventory. The most enjoyable part of the job was store meetings and outings.
Support Staff (Current Employee) – Skokie, IL – March 21, 2016
I do like working for J. Crew. I do more stock room then work with customers, though every job is shared. I can be helping customers on the sales floor, checking customers out at the register and places orders, to cleaning the stock room or finding orders to be sent out. I've always had great fun with management and my coworkers, generally everyone is easy going and we always try and have fun, especially on crazy, busy days.
Client Customer Care Representative (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX 78216 – March 18, 2016
Loved having no dress code. Learned how to have very good communication skills and learned how to help the customer in the moment. Loved all co-works ! enjoyed working with my supervisor. I enjoyed being able to work with other new employees and teach them what I have learned and what they can do better.

Stock/Operations manager (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – March 10, 2016
Working in a flagship location, kept me on my toes due to the high volume of the location. The abundant corporate exposure this store saw, forced staff and management to be the very best that we could possibly be in ensuring that customer service was always elevated, and that policies and procedures were followed with the highest level of integrity. In my time there I learned a lot about the e-commerce division also about hourly sales audits that don't occur in slower volume locations. From day one I worked with one of the most supportive groups of people I ever worked with in my retail career. The complexities of the position fell into place about 8 months into the job when we had difficulty staffing the store and the stock level increased 30% more than the previous year. lastly what I love the most about the job was that is was fun and the work still got done without the customer experience being jeopardized.
Computer Operator (Former Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – February 18, 2016
In my first year there I worked over 2 weeks of Overtime (that's 80 Hours). Learning experience = Both good and Bad. Sleeping Coworkers (plural & yes on the clock) Manager who would disregard it. Daily contact with supporting teams in NY who were usually very professional and friendly.
Worked alone Primarily, Pay & Benefits
Overly Critical Manager -did not treat everyone equal.
Market Director (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 17, 2016
JCrew afforded me wonderful opportunities for growth and advancement; the leadership teams were supportive and focused on the development on the people; it is a great company to work for and I will continue to refer candidates.
Supervisors and business partners are supportive and assessable.
Competitive pay adjustments for tenured employees should be re-evaluated in comparison to new hires.
I love working at Jcrew. I've learned how to fold a proper way and to be very neat. And also play with colors when they don't collide... but you have to experiment. Managers and co-workers have a very close relationship professionally and always get along. The hardest part of the job is learning many things at once but it's all about the hands on experience and all employees will help you with whatever you need. What I love about working at Jcrew is that it is a fast pace job with a lot of responsibilities, but it is a very fun environment and everyone is friendly.
Enjoyed working there as a seasonal employee. Good Structure.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – February 4, 2016
They had a good training program and set good expectations. Let you know when you were doing a good job. Managers did a good job of training. Co workers were courteous but did not have a lot of interaction during my short time of employment.
