    Nice place to work

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsGood benefits for full time employees, nice bonus plan, paid vacation time, sick and personal days, flexible schedules, good tools to get the job done, great discounts

    ConsThe plan isn't always shared till it's in action so then you have to recover and adapt to the new plan, but it's like that in most companies

    Advice to Senior Managementmake internal promotions easier, outside the company there are good people but the ones in the company are the ones who make you look great and deserve the chance to achieve a better position

    Best Retail Job I EVER Had

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) Scottsdale, AZ

    ProsOverall, my Store Manager was the most professional, warm and dedicated person I have ever worked for. She had immense product knowledge, sense of humor and strict workmanship. We always wanted to excel for her due to her encouragement. Accolades (sp?) for our sales were constant. We were treated as though the store's business was our own business. We all stood for the Sur la Table value and brand because of the positive environment.

    ConsThe ability to get a nominal pay increase was not available at the time. Must be a real hustler to work there - it is constantly busy and you are always on the move. Not really a con for many - but don't apply if you can't take constant business flow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer just a tad more upper management incentive flow to the sales floor. Kudos were sent frequently, but maybe they should be addressed to the individual employee rather than to the store in general.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
