    I worked at Sur La Table part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The management within the store were really pleasant to work with. The incentives from corporate for sales were fairly motivating, I loved that there wasn't a crummy credit card to push to customers. I had the opportunity to advance in the store after a couple months, but turned it down due to school commitments. It paid pretty well for retail. I would work here again if I did not have opportunities in my school field.

    Cons

    In the off season, hours could be tougher to come by. The search function on the computers needs to be updated badly. Sometimes corporate has us push items customers clearly don't want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please continue to give associates the ability to resolve customer problems, and please let store management retain some of the independence they need to give good customer service and tailor what the store needs to the local area.
