    I worked at Crate and Barrel part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great products, 30% discount, 401k

    Cons

    No full-time opportunities, just an army of part time employees so they don’t have to provide healthcare. Physically demanding. Not enough ladders. Storage in fire areas. Rodent issue.
