Not what it once was....

General Manager (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

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

ProsDiscount, forward thinking, exceptional customer service

ConsSalary, always asking for more with less, payroll unacceptable for dily, weekly and monthly expectations.

Advice to Senior ManagementWake up...over time there has been a back slide in everything that you do and it's beginning to catch up with the company and brand. Back to basics...forget about metrics as you are killing what made this company so special. Greed and unrealistic demands will be your downfall! Public company or not...how many companies that are so required a few open air market stores to be open for Easter? Think about it? It truly doesn't look great to our following or customer base!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Slave Drivers!

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Southlake, TX

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


Pros: the only saving grace is the 40% off! Cons: For a part time job this should have been fun! Hours are bad, pay horrible and management works your butt off.
