Really enjoyed my career at WS

Control Buyer (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsDirect management, great people, mentoring, great product, ownership of your business even if you are at a planner level, fun work environment, consistent learning and training

ConsIssues with senior leadership. It really depended on the org you were under, but it seemed that it was a much tougher world in merchandising versus inventory management

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Strange. This is no longer Williams Sonoma.

    Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    I worked at Williams-Sonoma part-time for less than a year


    Pros: I really enjoyed the people that I worked with. The 40% seasonal discount was nice too.… Cons: This business has changed. At this point they value profits over service and it's hurting them. I came in as seasonal help with the possibility… Advice to Senior Management: Several things. Go back to what made you good. Your service made you different. You've become like any other discounter.
