    I worked at Williams-Sonoma part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Williams-Sonoma is serious about customer care and supporting their staff. Questions are addressed and answered. Customers and quality of product are the two most important factors driving their business.

    Cons

    The computer system makes it difficult to follow up with clients and takes to much time to enter in client information. Because of this follow up is almost impossible.

    Advice to Management

    You care about the quality of your product line, because you understand that quality matters. However, when it comes to your POS and computer system, it becomes difficult to maintain that quality of service with substandard programs and equipment.


  2. Unappreciated, out-of-date practices, high stress, low wages.
