    Pros

    employee discount is the only real reason to work at williams sonoma if they try to hire you as a temporary employee. no benefits, treated like a second class citizen. management says there will be opportunities for full time employment, but never comes

    Cons

    temporary status for non temporary job, rude management, management that does not appreciate its employees, too few people for too much work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop hiring people with temporary status- creates divisions between workers, and creates unfair discrimination. you should make sure employees hired for full time status are not less competent than those with temporary status

    I worked at Williams-Sonoma

    Pros

    Decent discount on overpriced items.

    Cons

    Antiquated operating system, poor communication between corporate and managers and even less communication as to policy changes, important need to know issues like recalls, persons with swine flu in the call center, permanently out of stock items that are constantly in new catalogs and will never be available between management and employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company could be improved by cleaning house starting at the top and working down. Pay based on the quality of an associate, not based on how you work the system to make your stats look good.
