    Pros

    The company is very easy to work with, and if you understand retail, it is very easy to move up and do well in. The bonus program is simple and easy to achieve. The discount is incredible and very helpful to have especially when your only major dress code requirement is to bathe yourself in jewelry.

    Cons

    The company is not very large in sales volume, but is a very well known company all over the world. Personally it has more potential than what it is currently doing.

    Pros

    - simple tasks which makes working there very easy - pay isn't commission based - only hire within the company which allows for people to expect promotions frequently (I'm getting promoted to keyholder after working there for only 2 months) - 401k plan

    Cons

    - piercing ears of small children & infants - managers take 90% of the hours - the look of the store has to be changed every 2 weeks

    Pros

    You can gain experience when it comes to customer service and it'll be great on your resume if your planning on furthering your education/knowledge in retail.

    Cons

    They do not have enough hours, part time is all they have available. Your less likely to get a promotion or raise, and depending on which location your at it can be very slow.

    Pros

    Depending on the location, this can be a really enjoyable position! Low volume stores are generally easy to maintain. As long as you have a competent, fun-loving team, it's great.

    Cons

    The company itself is not so great. They don't care about employee relations or their customers. It's all about the money.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain better relationships with employees! Encouraging words can go a long way.
