    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
