    Pros

    Steady and secure, no lack of work in the near future.

    Cons

    Seems to be little room for advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize you already have great talent under your roof. Learn to promote from within! Who do you think is teaching the new managers you bring in from the outside....?

    I worked at Williams-Sonoma full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    So many shifts to choose from. You get a 40% discount

    Cons

    You probably cant afford the stuff they sell (even with a 40% discount) due to the low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys did a solid job, just remember that you get what you pay for!!
