I have been working at Pottery Barn part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great discount!!!! and they treat their employees great.

Cons

it's retail...you get the typical downsides of retails. Crazy people yelling at you for things that aren't your fault and long hours and holidays are lost.

Advice to Management

don't forget about your employees when your hiring for management. i always think the best thing you can do is hire from with in to move up...it encourages us to work harder. when you bring in someone less qualified from outside it just makes it feel like why are we trying.

    I have been working at Pottery Barn part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Generous discount
    Beautiful location
    Good mix of personalities
    Customers love the product and being in the store
    Many regular customers, so a good and comfortable place for them

    Cons

    Completely absent store manager. In the store maybe one time each week, and then only "on a conference call" not on the floor with the associates or the customers or the other managers.
    Other managers are just cashiers.
    No leadership at any level.
    Zero training for associates, even when asked for.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and stop lying to yourselves. This store, like most retail, is run on the backs of the hourly people. Those employees should have your attention. If you want the reputation of PB to be maintained, standards need to be in place. Insist that management is all "on the same page", because they are not.
