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.
