    Pros

    no pressure, family atmosphere, no commission

    Cons

    holidays can get pretty hectic, wrapping gifts are in high demand. I almost cut my finger off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep looking out for the employees and being a part of the family and you can never go wrong.

    I worked at Williams-Sonoma full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great product you can stand behind
    Great teams in the stores
    Great discount

    Cons

    Little to no training to sell high end products
    Unrealistic workload
    No longer the People First company they claim to be
    Disconnect between reality in the stores and what upper management thinks/dreams
    Out with the old in with the new

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    So much unhappiness and discontent in the stores. Invest some $$ in your people and payroll. Do some undercover visits to see the reality in your stores (ala Undercover Boss) Or work in a store on a normal day and see what it is like
