    Pros

    So many shifts to choose from. You get a 40% discount

    Cons

    You probably cant afford the stuff they sell (even with a 40% discount) due to the low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys did a solid job, just remember that you get what you pay for!!

    I have been working at Williams-Sonoma full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most people are genuinely nice to others. A very exciting place to work.

    Cons

    Lots of power struggling among middle management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to know what worker bees are thinking about, what they need the most not just believe what middle management is saying
