I have been working at Restoration Hardware part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The discount is great except as an employee they typically don't pay you enough to be able to afford anything. Some of the people are fun and interesting.

Cons

- Low compensation especially for the Bay Area
- Lack of flexibility in the work place
- No work/life balance
- The only way to get things done is to yell at people
- Execs make so many last minute changes that are financially ridiculous which causes many individuals to work long hours and not make deadlines
- They emphasize these "core values" yet none of the employees actually embody them
- Constant turnover of staff
- Lack of direction from upper management

Advice to Management

They should find someone who has any financial sense and put them in management

    Pros

    The company discount is amazing, your coworkers are great too. Free Tea and Coffee was great...It is those in upper management that leave a little to be desired. I loved the products that we sold as well as the beautiful stores we had to sell them in

    Cons

    Unrealistic deadlines, unhappy people, and overall fear that your job would be downsized with the next set of cuts made it quite hard to love my job. The old computer systems in the stores were very sad, they were like running dos yet expecting apple results.

    I worked at Restoration Hardware (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of my co-workers and customers were amazing.

    Cons

    Home office: A nightmare. The district leader for the outlets has zero personnel skills. Treated store associates with utter distain.

    Advice to Management

    Stop shoving the cult-like Core Values down everyone's throat. Or at the very least: practice what you preach.
