    Pros

    After one year you can get an opportunity to get health care plan. You also might have a chance to be promoted to a manager after few years of work. They also got paid vocation time off.

    Basically no challenges, just routine work.

    Pros

    RH is growing quickly, this is such a fun time to part of the company. I love that RH is innovated and believes they can achieve anything. As an associate one of the great things is our associate discount on merchandise.

    Cons

    Some challenges working at RH is the fast pace environment, sometimes things move so fast you have to keep up and be able to change directions quickly.

    Pros

    The people you work with are what makes this a special place to work. You have the opportunity to share your ideas with any level of leadership. Values based company that truly believes in their Core Values and incorporates them in the decision making.

    Cons

    Total benefit package is steadily improving as the company continues to have success, but not yet on par with it's competitors and similar sized companies in the Bay Area. This is an area of opportunity for the company that I hope, and believe, they address.

    I worked at Restoration Hardware part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    quality products, comraderie amongst staff, store bonuses based on store volume, upscale sophisticated clientele, calming music, subdued lighting and friendly staff.

    Cons

    as a member of the seasonal staff, you are let go with almost no notice, and although they say they will call you back when they get busy again or for the next season, that didn't happen with me.

    I worked at Restoration Hardware part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits, culture, values and location.
    Beautiful store, great product and great systems. I loved my IPAD and how easy it was to help customers.

    Cons

    I had to check my schedule and pray that I was not working with some people, they were very negative and loved to gossip.
    I kept to myself and refused to be a part of the drama.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to get some people out of there, you know who they are.
    Just do it.
    You have some great people and I enjoyed most of my peers, but I could not believe how some others were so disrespectful and toxic.
