Our employees tell us how they feel about working for Crossroads Trading Company.
“At Crossroads, customers really become part of the family because we see the same faces every week, and in some cases, every day! So, naturally, as customers’ lives evolve and grow, we are witness to major life changes. I have seen single women get married, couples have babies, and recently, a customer received the call that her 5th grandchild had been born while I was helping her at the buying counter. I got misty-eyed right along with her as she was overcome with that special call from her daughter. We also share in sad moments, like when a longtime customer lost her beloved dog…all of the stores she frequented shared in that loss and mourned right along with her. After 6 years, I still treasure these human moments I get to share with my customers, and am so grateful that we get to touch each others’ lives in this way.”

“I have been with Crossroads for almost five years. I was drawn to the company as a senior in high school because of its unique approach to retail. I started out at the Sacramento store than transferred to the San Francisco Market St. store when I left home for college. I eventually came back to the Sacramento store once I finished college and became a full-time Buyer, and about a year after that I was promoted to a Floor Supervisor. During that time I learned about an open position as a Buying Department Assistant at Crossroads’ Headquarters. With a major in fashion, it was always my goal to get my foot in the door at HQ and work in the buying department, so I applied for the position and was hired the following week! For the first three months, I commuted five days a week from Sacramento to Berkeley and it was definitely worth it. Now a year later, I still have a great passion and love for what I do. Every day is a new challenge and a new experience to learn from and that’s what motivates me to come to work each day. I love the people I work with and the company I work for.
