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

    Pros

    Great discount. Managers are fun and easy to get along with. Never a boring day. Meet interesting people.

    Cons

    They base their entire payroll budget on sales goals that don't account for a lack of foot traffic or changing neighborhoods. They gamble with the budget and hourly employees pay for it in huge cuts and reductions. They have a lot of turn over because who can live paycheck to paycheck with 10 hours a week?

    Advice to Management

    Restructure the payroll budget and give dedicated hours for tasks and stellar employees that go above and beyond.


  2. "Hard work rewarded"

    I have been working at Sur La Table full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun, fast paced and demanding. The company is growing and wants strong people to maintain momentum. Discount is awesome.

    Cons

    It can be a little demanding at times but hard work with a good attitude is rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the full spectrum of employees contributing to the success of the company. Not just positions where success is measured by profits.
