No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Williams-Sonoma part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Coworkers are nice 40% Discount/20%-electronics Interesting tools/gadgets

Cons

Scheduling is ridiculous -Either too much or too little -"Because of Payroll" is heard way too often -Manipulative manager Poor transit execution Constant turnover of floor set Poor communication between stores and coporate

Advice to Management

Be honest - do not tell a set of employees one thing just to have them support an area of the store that is lacking and then have other employees do the exact opposite Less intense - work will get done no matter the manner it is spoken Let stores' stock associates have some control over shipment - to minimize overstocking of certain products

    A few of the smaller brands are ran like a start up company rather than a major big brand retail company.

    I worked at Williams-Sonoma full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Having a great brand on your resume.

    Cons

    The company is so heavily branded working there as a Graphic Designer takes away your ability to be creative.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your designers to be designers and budget for the proper staff to support the workload.
