I have been working at Pottery Barn part-time for more than a year

Pros

Great employee discount - 40%

Cons

Horrible pay for back breaking work, no motivation from mgt, no training from mgt

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please come up with creative ways to motivate employees, despite the low pay. Also, no one enjoys looking like fools to customers when they can't speak intelligently about a product because they've had no training.

    I worked at Pottery Barn part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Easy product to sell, the discount was awesome!

    Cons

    Too many changes in management. Each time a new manager came along you had to prove you weren't an idiot all over again! One mangager came along and ran off a couple of other managers and then proceeded to set people up to get them fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would have loved to come back to the Chandler, AZ Pottery Barn but the new manager came from Nordstrom and is ONLY hiring people from Nordstrom. Hello management, don't you see what is going on!

    I worked at Pottery Barn as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    -Collaborative-Pottery Barn emphasizes teamwork, so individuals feel empowered to contribute ideas in meetings, etc...
    -Great upper management!
    -Very positive working environment.
    -Great combination of both creative and business-oriented employees.

    Cons

    -Pottery Barn is about 80% female, which is not necessarily a pro or a con, just a fact that individuals may or may not like to consider.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Opportunity to improve communication between retail stores and corporate to improve customer service.
