    I have been working at Sur La Table part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers. Atmosphere. Food. I feel appreciated and that managers try to make it a fun place to work.

    Cons

    Employee discount that doesn't apply to sale items. Slow in getting repairs completed.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aggressive in getting needed repair work completed.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sur La Table (San Francisco, CA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    the interview process was streamlined and fairly fast however they performed a background check and said they were interested in working things out but the district manager never followed through with his words and said i never contacted him when i left hime several messages they lost out on a great employee
