ok
Furniture (Current Employee), Arlington, TXApril 19, 2015
It is an okay place to work and as with most jobs there are ups and downs and you have to roll with it. The director of the facility is great and I just wish that his energy was spread throughout the facility.

Fun workplace and nice environment. If you like to do different things every workday this is the place. Everything has to be done in a timely manner which I didn't mind because the hours would pass by fast.

Call Center
Full Service Associate (Current Employee), Las Vegas,NvApril 13, 2015
Williams-Sonoma,Inc. was a difficult company to work for. I did not feel as though we were trained well before they put us on the phones. I witnessed supervisors/leads belittling other associates in the company instant message system. I was hired to work from home but 24 hrs before I was supposed to start, they changed it and stated those of us hired needed to be working in the center. Customers were extremely rude and demeaning to us which made the job very unbearable.

Good job but unfair management
Auditor (Former Employee), Olive Branch, MSApril 8, 2015
Pros: Helpful co-workers
Cons: Discrimination
I did heavy lifting everyday, and while doing so I learned to work very well with other co-workers. Some co-workers knit picked a lot and that's hard to deal with knowing that the manager won't put an end to it, but overall I enjoyed my job and the people I met.

Williams-Sonoma Inc. Call Center
Customer Service Rep (Former Employee), The Colony, TXApril 7, 2015
Pros: Training, co-workers
Cons: Communication between corporate and call center
A typical day at work began with logging into your computer and preparing for the day's calls. This particular call center dealt with inbound calls concerning both sales and customer service. The training lasted 5 weeks and was invaluable in learning about the Williams-Sonoma family (Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Mark & Graham, and Restoration). The computer programs were also explained in detail. Once training ended, both management and co-workers helped in explaining more difficult calls to new employees. Since it was peak season, the calls for sales and customer service were at high volume. We were reminded to do the best we could for our customers while following Williams-Sonoma guidelines. I enjoyed my experience at the Williams-Sonoma call and being able to help people during the holiday season.

Productive and fun place to work.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Pleasanton, CAApril 6, 2015
Pros: great Discounts
Cons: Over worked, Under paid
Customer Service is what that company is all about . Co-workers would come and go, its retail right?
Hardest part of the job was getting a system down and then they would up and change it on you. That was fine for someone like me, but try teaching and re-teaching to those whom challenged in you the beginning.

Floor Manager (Former Employee), Washington, DCApril 3, 2015
Working for Williams-Sonma, Inc. provided the perfect experience for fast paced customer service training. Working one holiday season alone is enough to teach you how to keep a calm head when all around you seems like chaos. You are given the tools to learn and expand your expertise at every turn.

Buyer - Pottery Barn Catalog & Ecommerce (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAMarch 24, 2015
Pros: great brand

While this is a good place for career advancement and to put on your resume, the day to day is overwhelming. Benefits are not competitive and work-life balance is not considered.
