Was just there and picked up an app. They seemed kind of excited about it. "Oh, yay!" the manager (female) said, patting on the shoulder. No kidding.

Probably didn't hurt that I was dressed head to foot in J. Crew. Or that the sales dude greeted me with a big, "Hey, man, good to see you again," and shook my hand.

Must have been elated at the prospect of maybe finally employing their token old guy (thought I'd beat you all to the punch).

Ok, that settles it. I'm picking up an application on my way home from work.

I've been considering this for a long time too. My kids already love J Crew ( I trained them well), so I don't think they'd mind coming to see their Dad at J Crew on Sat/Sun.

The outlet stores are having 50% off or so. There's one about 1 hour 15 minutes from me, but no XS from what I remember

My Vintage chambray came in today. Fit is pretty nice, just the sleeve is alittle baggy..but I'll probably will wear em roll up most of the time. I also bought one of their Thomas Mason shirt..I was really curious.

In the past, several customers in several J. Crew stores mistakenly thought I was an employee.
post #1255 of 2133
What do they pay?
post #1256 of 2133
I assume minimum wage.
post #1257 of 2133
It's all about the discounts. I was actually considering J Crew for my summer employment, and so this thread delivers.

Welcome to my world. Pretty much every time I walk in people ask me to grab them a size from the back. Next time I'm going to go and bring them something completely wrong.

I have yet to see a woman working in a men's section (non outlet) but have seen men working in an all women's J Cew.

I was at the Grove store a few weeks ago and the men's head designer (this guy):



was in the store. We were dressed almost exactly alike - khaki's, chambray, right down to both of us having our aviators hanging from the V at the top buttoned-button of our shirts, except he was wearing boat shoes. And all his shit was Jcrew, and I was wearing BR and RRL. It was kinda embarrassing.

I wonder if I have the energy for it, though. I cherish my free time. And sometimes my regular workday can really do me in. Still, those discounts... .
