    Pros

    They will never fire you (only make it incredibly uncomfortable to push you out).
    Decent discount
    Great learning experience for retail environment

    Cons

    RH doesn't promote from within although they give the allure of vast opportunity.
    Poor Compensation. (You get what you pay for...mediocrity)
    Not truly living by the values that they project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the company wants to live by "Fast is as slow as we go"...then they should indoctrinate this into there interviewing and promotional processes. They lose a lot of great talent by holding the carrot out but not pulling the trigger when it comes to hiring and promotions. By hiring from outside and not promoting your inside talent, this discourages your employees on many levels.

    I have been working at Restoration Hardware

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Commission 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 ManagementAdvice

    Management 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.
