seasonal sales associate's prospective Oct '13-Feb '14

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Restoration Hardware

ProsGreat team of diversely skilled associates and passionate management, generous discount, relaxed environment. Good pay (in comparison to typical retail jobs). Staff were very focused on educating me on products and were extremely passionate about what they did. Management facilitated an overall enjoyable experience. The gallery leader Colleen does an excellent job of acting as an advocate for her associates and creating a high energy working environment. She does a great job of utilizing the different strengths of her team members in order to bring about success in her gallery.

ConsCommission or added sales bonuses would be welcome considering the sticker price on some orders exceeded 5 figures. I understand why they don't operate off of commission but I feel it would definitely drive sales numbers.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement was great. They made me feel welcome and treated me no different than their seasoned associates. They showcase a true passion for results and made sure to uphold the company's core values in their day to day interactions with associates and customers alike.

Amazing Company to work for!!!!

Store Leader (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

I worked at Restoration Hardware full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe corporate culture is incredible, everyone feels valued and can have a point of view from the bottom on up.
The room for growth potential is definitely there and up to each individual, I was promoted 5 times in the last 12 months.

Cons"If you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life" - You must truly love your job at RH because as a store leader level you truly never get a day off, you are always connected to the business and store.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't let the great one's get away

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Professional staff, great work environment.

Design Sales (Current Employee)
Tampa, FL

I have been working at Restoration Hardware

ProsA company who values the attributes each individual brings to the table and plays to their strengths.

ConsArtfully run, and from a operational standpoint the business decisions cost the company more money than necessary.

Advice to Senior ManagementDesperately need technological advances in ordering software, giftcards, registry programs, and inventory systems for stock checks and replenishment. Also a delivery company who can bring items undamaged would be a plus on the service end.

The best of the best for Retail and Interior Design Professionals.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Restoration Hardware full-time for more than a year

ProsUpper management stays completely connected to their people. A lot of room for innovation and creativity. No micromanaging. Amazing pay. Never a dull moment. Constantly changing. Very challenging. Amazing product. You truly feel like you are a part of a supportive network, it feels like a family. Extremely invested in training and development. Maintains a culture that is unparalleled in retail.

ConsDifficult to move up, but the extremely high expectations also make it such a great place. You work with smart motivated people from the stock room to the top. Catch 22.

Advice to Senior ManagementNEVER stop being connected to the field. Make interviewing process shorter.
