gone from good to bad, no longer classy

Sales Associate (Current Employee) Santa Monica, CA (US)

Prosnice employees to work with at bottom level

ConsThis company is no longer a classy upscale store that carries what you need or is good to their employees. Instead we carry silly gagdets tht are not practical but are overpriced and we don't carry some basic kitchen items that everyone should have. Top management only cares about bottom line-money and not about the best customer service. i also became embarassed 2 weeks ago when corporate told the managers to cut payroll in half at the bussiest time of tne year-no gift wrap, no answering phones, no greeting at the door-unbelievable! Pay for associates is too low and no acknowledgment of a job well done. Top management does not care about employees or try to keep them happy. Only good thing is the other associates that work there are great

Advice to Senior ManagementSorry but the CEO since Chuck died has run this company into the dirt

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Upscale Mediocrity

    Coordinator (Current Employee) New York, NY (US)

    I have been working at Williams-Sonoma full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros: Decent benefits. Some good, talented, and dedicated people. Employee discount.… Cons: Low pay. Disconnect between store management and corporate management. Difficult to retain talent because of payroll constraints. Lack of support given increasingly high… Advice to Senior Management: Don't preach "People First" unless you practice it. Upgrade key systems at the store level, not just for the employees' benefit, but for your customers.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
