Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Williams-Sonoma full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Beautiful products - nice variety - exclusive

Cons

Way too many tasks to do - totally unrealistic. Things change on a daily basis. With all they expect to get done - with the payroll they give - not enough time to do it all and no time for selling. Too bad too. There is truly no work/life balance here - despite what they say.

Advice to Management

You should do a UNDERCOVER BOSS so you can really see what it is like at the store level.
Less discount on merchandise so you can give "real" raises. I believe in where Laura wants to go with this company - just don't like how she is going about doing it.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Williams-Sonoma as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere is wonderful, the full-time staff are all amazing, helpful, patient, and kind.
    Perks: Hot Chocolate and Peppermint Bark samples galore, and the best Christmas playlist around.

    Cons

    Even with my (fabulous) discount, it's still expensive

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! For instance, there were several corporate employees who worked in the Post Street Flagship store today side by side with seasonal and full-time staff.
