    Pros

    Company truly cares about its employees and my coworkers were great.

    Cons

    It's retail, so of course hours and weekends and holidays are going to be a challenge if you're expecting to work M-F 8-5 then this is not a good fit.

    Pros

    Helzberg is an amazing place to work. A place where you will make your own destiny. You can go as far as you want with this company. Helzberg is a very positive environment to work in. I came from a dog eat dog company where I struggled to get ahead. Here I've been nothing but happy and my career has advanced 10 fold.

    Cons

    Work personal life balance but any real retail job is that way...

    Pros

    Company culture is positive.
    If you work hard, the pay is good.
    Career advancement opportunities are good

    Cons

    Since being bought out by Berkshire Hathaway, they have gradually scaled back commissions & employee discount.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company expects managers to be positive to the extreme & sometimes that puts managers in a position where they feel they cannot communicate honestly with sales associates. Remember that your sales associates will work harder if given some buy-in on making the store goal.
