I worked at Sur La Table part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Customers are happy when they shop here so it makes your job easy. It's like hosting an event every day. Products are of the highest quality, extensive variety, latest innovations, and the employee discount is great.

Cons

standard retail work, busy season is October through January. Pay is low. no opportunity to move up. little interest in local marketing.

Advice to Management

Send your employees catalogs, they are some of your best customers and they can learn about the product on their own time. Involve your employees in marketing innovations, especially since they are part timers they have access to networks outside your stores. Even an employee suggestion system might uncover some great ideas.

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

    Pros

    Absolutely great customers, great products, super discount

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations. Payroll is super tight and you are expected to complete shipment and floorsets on your "down time", while focusing on the customer....There's not enough time to get everything done.

    Advice to Management

    You need to create a culture where you actually listen to the people in the field. It's great to say make it work, but the leaders actually have to lead and help find ways to make it work.
