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

Pros

The discount is amazing and the uniform is pretty easy to manage while still being able to express myself (solid colors). Also, the company runs on California state laws so most shifts are 4-4.5 hours instead of 5-5.5 without having to get a break. (I live in Massachusetts)

Cons

I know part of the requirement is to be able to lift 35 pounds, but what is not mentioned is that sometimes you have to do it while standing on a ladder. My store also just needs more people.

    Pros

    Customers are happy when they shop here so it makes your job easy. It's like hosting an event every day. Products are of the highest quality, extensive variety, latest innovations, and the employee discount is great.

    Cons

    standard retail work, busy season is October through January. Pay is low. no opportunity to move up. little interest in local marketing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Send your employees catalogs, they are some of your best customers and they can learn about the product on their own time. Involve your employees in marketing innovations, especially since they are part timers they have access to networks outside your stores. Even an employee suggestion system might uncover some great ideas.
