Great discount. Loved learning so much from co-workers. Enjoyed trying all the new products. Good exercise walking and climbing ladders.

a real disconnect and expectations are unrealistic!

    I worked at Williams-Sonoma part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice coworkers, learned about merchandise and techniques. VERY generous discounts.

    Cons

    Horrible shifts, short notice on scheduling makes planning your own life very difficult. All housekeeping is done by sales staff. Floor scrubbing, oven cleaning, TOILET cleaning. So very misleading when you apply and interview.

    Advice to Management

    Hire store managers who can actually handle their jobs appropriately. Not overly tense, stressed out, snippy ones. Don't bother sharing store goals with sales people. Nobody actually keeps track of sales other than manager grumbling about it. Employees sell as much as they can. Not exactly keeping track since not in commission.
