Great place to work, but if you're not in the "club" you won't move up.
Assistant General Manager (Current Employee) – Arizona – February 1, 2018
Sur La Table has grown in the multiple years I have worked for them. I started out as a Culinary Instructor, moved up to the Assistant Resident Chef, and am now the Assistant General Manager. I will say I have moved up fast, but that was only due to desperate needs of the store, and my willingness to do so. I have not been trained AT ALL for the management position. I have done all training by myself, either at management seminars or other. Staff can be great, but people love drama. Sales goals can be unrealistic at times, and corporate demands too much from their UNDER paid staff.
Great benefits for full-time positions, Employee discounts, Cooking class discounts
Lack of communication with corporate, Hard to advance unless you know somebody to "help" you.
