    I worked at Sur La Table part-time

    Pros

    If one likes cooking, entertaining & learning more about tools & skills this is a fun place to do all of that. Mostly good people & relaxed clientele makes for an interactive day that usually isn't boring. If this isn't your primary focus or is just a temp job then it's fun. Anything beyond that & you're fooling yourself.

    Cons

    Store managers shouldn't feel any task within the store is "beneath " them especially if they want to claim the title of SM. unfortunately the attitude is one of "I want the prestige but I don't want the responsibility" which in turn creates no respect & no leadership. Could be a great opportunity for one who wants a retail career but there is no guidance to foster growth. Sad that next level of leadership would rather sweep problems under rug than address & fix.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jack & board should follow the adage "pigs get fat & hogs get slaughtered" when dealing with employees regarding comp & benefits. You won't keep any quality people engaged for very long without promotions, livable wages & benefits
