Former Employee - Production Assistant in San Francisco, CA

I worked at Williams-Sonoma full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Looks good on a resume because other companies know if you can stand working there you can stand working anywhere. Otherwise no Pros.

Cons

No personal growth, no respect for work life balance, forced overtime including weekends, forced to skip lunches. Vacations denied. Forced to come in sick as well as work overtime sick. Have to ask permission to leave every day. Oh and multiple employees cry in the bathroom, take mental leaves of absence or develop ulcers due to stress.

    I worked at Williams-Sonoma part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Awesome people, good physical job (Pottery Barn stock).

    Cons

    6am truck deliveries can be hard. As stock you sometimes have to do some things you shouldn't do like move particularly heavy furniture on your own like moving a 150 lb table on to a dolly then on to a truck or lifting an awkward 75 lb coffee table box onto a 5ft shelf. Not insane, you should just have some help which isn't always available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being awesome.

    Establish a company culture to ensure that it doesn't feel like we are starting from the beginning each peak season.
