Today thousands were let go from the companies of Williams Sonoma. We were told we could apply for a job during the holiday season. Wow. People with 10, 15, 20 years with the company got a call from the district manager saying thanks and good luck. It hurts with the commitment we’ve given with schedule changes at the last minute or going in early after staying late the night before. Really you couldn’t keep us on until the holiday season? With the small number of hours available now, that was too much to offer. I guess people don’t count at Williams Sonoma.
those let go worked 13 hours or less & the readins really was thst if you were 60 days in active, you were dismissed. Problem with that is that many stores were closed up to two months before reopened to public so technically, we were not inactive & Corprate lied to make a profit for themselves & kept their favorites. They didn't have to do this. They could have put us on a leave of absence until Holiday season knowing they would need a full.staff until February. Greedy & zero compassion during this Pandemic. Shame on them ...& their LinkedIn post..about employees first...so fake & lies.
