Good, better communication from the corporate level would help overall.

    I have been working at Williams-Sonoma

    Pros

    I have a great manager who is respectful of all the employees and very flexible with time off. I like the interesting products we sell, they are fun to talk about and try out and of course we have some great customers - very loyal to the store and interested in learning about the products. Of course the discount is great.

    Cons

    There can be difficult customers but that comes with any retail position. Otherwise, sometimes we have long hours especially during the holiday season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep us "little people" in the loop if there are changes to policy or processes - sometimes things change and we are unaware and need to be able to tell customers the correct info.

    I worked at Williams-Sonoma

    Pros

    Great for a part time job where you can get the discounts. it is very glamorous to work for WS. All your friends will be jealous and we get to build a pretty nice kitchen (more jealousy from our friends when they come to visit).
    Great Benefits for full-time employees.

    Cons

    Store manager with no leadership, store short on sales associates during peak time.
    It is hard to lead when your direct supervisor doesn't give you freedom and doesn't do much either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention when GM's don't hire enough people during holidays, you are loosing business. It is a company that has great products, phenomenal clientele and a great potential to always be on top.
