Not and easy job, but manager can make or break the experience

Current Employee - Sales Associate in Houston, TX
Current Employee - Sales Associate in Houston, TX

I have been working at Sur La Table part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Discount great. Lots of free coffee. Cooking classes. I have worked under two different store managers since the store opened, and the first one was erratic, irrational, and a megalomania who exerted her will on every single issue, but ended up being wrong on most of them. The new store manager can have an occasional moment of anger, but is actually extremely even keeled, fair, and actually seems to care. Be prepared for whoever your store manager or assistant managers are, because they can make a huge difference.

Cons

- lack of hours
- last minute changes
- lots of work without support

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust in your managers and associates. They can get the job done if you just give them the tools and gameplan upfront.

    Pros

    Great discount, coworkers, and products. The work environment is great, and the store management does a great job in guiding the sales associates, but they are limited because often corporate is breathing down their necks.

    Cons

    Hiring process is very biased. Low pay for sales associates, and especially culinary assistants. Especially the nature of the work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give leadership positions to those with experience within the company, so that they may actually know the product

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
