    I worked at Williams-Sonoma part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Staff and managers are friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. The environment itself is comfortable. Company offers a generous 40% discount to employees, including temps.

    Cons

    The pay in retail is low; Williams-Sonoma is no exception. The opportunities to advance into cooking demos are not as open as I was led to believe.

    Advice to Management

    The cash registers could use an upgrade.
