    I worked at Restoration Hardware part-time

    Pros

    Beautiful showroom! Pretty much the only thing I looked forward to each day.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? This place is a joke! The interview process is a bit pretentious. 7 interviews to be exact. All to go and be a glorified sales associate. Don't waste your time if you're looking for a true design experience. Especially if you went to school for four years to be classified as an "Interior Designer". You'll never actually use your skill.

    Everyone in Management are pretty much all puppets.

    Advice to Management

    Not all people need to be micro-managed.

    I have been working at Restoration Hardware full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Can’t think of any. The pros of any sort can never out weigh the cons. I would have to say the true pros are the people that dodge every bullet and blow that these guys dish out.

    Cons

    Think about working for a company that you have been at for years, they under pay for their expectations, they will abuse you to no end if you aren’t into their hyper aggressive ultra liberal belief system. These people will not only attack you, but put you through years of suffering if you exceed their performance expectations , but you’re different from them. I know too many people that have to live in shadows to keep employment. When I say abusive, be prepared to have the directors say awful things to your face in meetings, just for the fun of it. Be prepared for the psychological mind games. Be prepared to be ostracized and mistreated to a degree that would constitute an abusive relationship on any other scale. The best part of this is that these people take true pleasure in trying to do mental damage. The reviews that you read that indicate the practice what you preach thing, is 100% true. This company is smoke and mirrors. You will be a number. If they don’t like your number, the emotional abuse will ensue.

    Advice to Management

    Gary, clean them out , you literally let trolls run your company, and you wonder why you are struggling to stay in the game.

    I worked at Restoration Hardware full-time

    Pros

    The benefits were good and the people were great

    Cons

    The hours are really long.
    ,12-15hrs a day 5-6 days a week. They use archaic inventory system. I believe they have implented something since. The high level management seems nice and motivate but are inept.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure

    Pros

    Company give you a great discount on furniture.

    Cons

    Company doesn't know how to take care of their own people. No growth, they hire people full time and after a few months they will put you on a part time position and just take you off schedule for good and will call you when needed.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and take care of them. They are the one making your company and helping you in business.

    I worked at Restoration Hardware full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people I worked with, the team

    Cons

    The clientele; most people who shop here think they're above others because they're shopping in a "higher end" store. Another negative was the fact that corporate had no idea what was really going on at the store level. Raises were done as a percentage, so it never kept up with cost of living or what you put into the ojb. The only time would when receiving a promotion.
