I worked at Sur La Table part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Employees get a great discount on retail items. It is not a hard job physically.

Cons

Hours are unpredictable if you are a kitchen assistant. Promised 20hours a week, worked 4-8 hours a week.

Advice to Management

Hire kitchen assistants with experience, and pay them what they are worth.

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

    Pros

    Can move up quickly, however, the perks to do so are not enticing.
     A decent employee discount, though not as good as competitor retailers.

    Cons

    Poor leadership and team building. Lack of communication between managers and associate. Abusive assistant manger who is "me only." As a result a sense of chaos and low morale prevails.

    Advice to Management

    Work to cultivate a positive work culture. Could be a wonderful place to work - but promoting those who lead by fear is not leading -It's bullying. You will lose your best employees. Head in the sand management never works and sends a negative message to everyone. It will erode your store and eventually the whole corporate culture. Take time to congratulate employees on a job well done and when they have achieved an incentive or bonus.
    Help them (which will help you) to reap positive benefits and ultimately your annual goals.
