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

Pros

Very LGBT friendly. Good atmosphere. The employees are easy to get along with... even when I get on their last nerves. Everyone there is hilarious!

Cons

Lots of inside politics. The pay rate could be a bit higher. Some managers have "favorites".

Advice to Management

Stop playing games. And to one specific manager, stop stealing sales.

    I have been working at Williams-Sonoma part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    great products and great associates

    Cons

    Corporate asks for the impossible. As an associate you are expected to carry out too many tasks at once while delivering amazing customer service. It cannot all be done well! And the pay is TERRIBLE

    Advice to Management

    Stop having so many meetings. Come into the stores and see what's really going on. So many changes are happening and they're not helping the stores at all.
