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

Pros

I worked here over a holiday season. It was typically very busy, as they do most of their business during the holidays, but it wasn't bad. The shifts were reasonable and not too long, the atmosphere was great, and for the most part the customers were very friendly. One of the best part-time jobs I've had

Cons

It's tough to get as many shifts as you want because they do hire a lot of extra people for the holidays.

    I have been working at Williams-Sonoma part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    generous employee discount for sales associates and lovely fellow associates

    Cons

    There is no chance for advancement, hours are minimal, more interested in pushing the credit card than actual customer service, we are expected to do more with fewer hours and fewer people - again hours have been cut to a few a week, only management gets full time hours with just fill in to help close. What good is the discount when you are only working two hours a week?

    Advice to Management

    Nurture your staff and treat them as valuable to your bottom line in creating a solid customer base.
