I love working for Williams-Sonoma, but Corporate has very odd ideas of what is "best" for the company.

Pros

Great discount!, love working with the people at the store level! I think that you would really like to work at williams-sonoma if you like fast pace environments as well as somewhat often slow times.

Cons

Corporate, Corporate, Corporate. There vision for the company is to simply lose the power of the brand (although Pottery Barn and other companies within Williams-Sonoma, Inc. are doing fine) They are neglecting what this company was built upon.

    Pros

    Challenges and sales competitions between sales associates within your store, region and company with fantastic prizes and incentives. Great team of employees and management. Fantastic company discount. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Stress and demand of holiday season and retail. This goes without saying with any retailer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Williams-Sonoma full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you like working hard this is the place to be. Lot of opportunities and lots to get done.

    Cons

    This place is always trying to do too much in too short a time and half the costs. So extremely challenging environment. There is never a dull or a lull moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No knee jerk reactions. Have a plan and stick to it
