Customer Support /Service - Sales Associate (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OKAugust 13, 2014
Williams-Sonoma is a wonderful company that goes more than a few extra steps to make its customers happy. My favorite part of the job is the data entry. The hardest is dealing with customers who are hard pressed to squeeze a drop of water from a rock, in essence disturbing the flow of calls of genuine customer service calls on a hunt to find a way to – more... receive maximum discounts or credits. My co workers are quite diverse. I enjoy what they provide to my work life. Management works hard to always assist in any and every way possible. – less

Stable company with forward thinking management
Technical Delivery Systems PMO Project Manager (Current Employee), Rocklin, CAAugust 11, 2014
Pros: working for a company that delivers some of the best home products available.
Cons: the bureaucracy and politics can hold back timely quality work.
Williams-Sonoma is a typical corporate retail environment with a fair amount of bureaucracy, politics and over lapping processes. But, it has definitely long since found it's customer and it's place in the market. It has very talented teams that are great to work for the most part.
I've learned an enormous amount about eCommerce there as well as infrastructure – more... management from a PMO PM position. The infrastructure that has been put in place to incorporate PCI, PCC and SDLC compliance is impressive.
The most difficult part about the position is that IT in general is always on call regardless of the post. When a SEV1 impacts revenue through the store channel, eComm channel or order channel, everything is dropped to restore service and then resolve the issue(s) to the work as designed work flow.
The most enjoyable part about the job is the people. While it's not always considered the number one priority, their "People First" ideology does come through. – less

Love my job.......a typical day at this job is exciting, because you never know what's the next new item/s are until you actually look at them for yourself, instead of a catalog.

Terrible place to work........I would not recommend.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NVJuly 5, 2014
Pros: discount which is what you would normally pay somewhere else.
Cons: over worked. supervisors do not want to help
The worst job I have ever had. This company does not care about their employees. They make it harder and harder. Very stressful because the company does not know what they are doing. Lots of mistakes made other departments, not to mention over priced product with lots of flaws. Under paid and overworked!!

Great job but it was a temp job
Lab Technician (Former Employee), Township of South Brunswick, NJJune 29, 2014
Pros: climate controlled, friendly atmosphere, stress free
Cons: far drive, pay was just ok, it was only temp
At this job I could work at my own pace doing all that was required of me and then some, and I was still ahead of the day.
I learned quality control, how to do my job which consisted of taking pictures of stock, measurements, data entry
My co-workers were great and also I enjoyed the management.
Hardest part of the job was physically demanding but it – more... really wasn't a problem for me, and it was a far drive.
Most enjoyable part of the job was climate controlled, friendly atmosphere, and I was good at my job. I really would have liked to stay there, but only temp was available. – less

Top heavy and deceitful manager
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Hallandale Beach, FL at Gulfstream ParkJune 27, 2014
Pros: nice merchandise
Cons: top heavy, dishonest management, disorganized store.
This store is not a good place to work. They have like 5 managers and 3 part-time sales associates. I was lied to by the store manager who told me that I had to work as a stock boy as well. I didn't sign up for that. Management is cliquey and shady. It's a nice store though and a couple of the managers are cool but not the top guy. Avoid at all costs.

Pros: meeting new people, knowing staff for a long time, many years with company
Cons: not getting much of a pay increase after being there for almost a decade
Have had over 8 years of high-end retail experience,primarily in stock and warehouse functions. Work was always a new exiting challenge for me everyday! Met exiting people from all different cultures. I had to articulate and be persuasive in dealing with all levels of management of my fellow co workers who I had no problems getting along with. We are – more... a team. Highly enjoyed customer service and helping people.Most Enjoyable part of my job, was something I am extremely precise with.Having an eye for attention to detail, in organization and setting goals to improving efficiency of everyday work functions! Hardest part (Although it was not hard to me) was the the labor of warehouse work. I actually enjoy hard labor. I am very fit and capable of working hard! – less
