Pros

the discount and the employees

Cons

Poor pay in relationship to responsiblity and amount of work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want to keep good employees pay them what there worth. Upgrade computer system. Don't waste payroll hours on all the conference calls and poorly thought out special events (ex. mothers morning out, open at 8 for no cst. wasting hours of payroll).Top Mgt needs to get out of office and work in stores during holidays.

    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

    Fantastic work environment, exciting opportunity to grow within company.
