I have been working at Sur La Table part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good company to work for. Managers, coworkers, and customers are all nice. Love all the products we sell. Great with accommodating days you need off. If you love all things culinary and are a total foodie this is the place for you. Awesome discount for employees.

Cons

Training can be better. Would like to be trained on all the products and their major selling points to better inform the customer and increase sales. Would like mor than 8 hours a week as well. Pay can be better as well.

Advice to Management

Instead of hiring more people give the hours to your existing staff.

    Pros

    The store offers a great discount on products as well as classes.

    Cons

    Incredibly unprofessional, incompetent, and uneducated management. The managers at the location I was working at had previously worked at Forever21. They had absolutely no knowledge of kitchen tools or cooking. They constantly tried to make up for their ineptness by putting new holiday sales staff on the spot in front of customers. Instead of being able to assist customers with questions or gift ideas you were forced to stay in your "zone" regardless of the situation. If a manager caught you leaving your zone even to help a customer you were immediately reprimanded.
