    I have been working at Williams-Sonoma part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly company, the atmosphere they created at my store is high energy and fun! Easy to move up if you are looking for something part time but still management. Good ground floor experience.

    Cons

    All depends on what store you belong to. Easy to move up to lower level part time positions, but getting a full time position is nearly impossible. Very cliquey atmosphere in management and not a long term job if you want a family and a social life. Not compensated well.
