    Pros

    Very happy work environment, I always feel that my supervisor and boss are accessible to me and ready to help or answer my questions! I feel as though the company truly wants to see me succeed and they give you all the tools necessary to do so. I am constantly learning and working with many different departments on multiple projects.

    Cons

    Some months require a good bit of travelling but it is always to nice places.

    Pros

    You can partake in an industry that is unlike any other, and have the opportunity to learn about the multiple different business aspects that go into running a successful duty-free retailer. The chance to travel, a flexible work-life balance, combined with working alongside people from all different walks of life, creates a wonderful work environment.

    Cons

    The company is currently working to further enhance management training and retain qualified employees, and the effort has been showing within the past year. I feel this will continue to grow within the next few years!

    The money you make in comparison to what you sale is ridiculous, they should improve the commission structure .

    Pros

    Largest duty-free retailer but run like a family business. Everyone treats you like family. Wonderful working environment.

    Cons

    Some of the women that work there only want to succeed themselves and don't want to help other women succeed within the company. Obviously there are plenty of other men and women within the company who do want you to succeed.

    I worked at Diamonds International as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working with a group of people from all over the world. Gaining retail sales experience with ability to earn high commissions... Products are beautiful!!!!

    Cons

    Long hours and sometimes the slow times are dreadfully boring, but there are ways to stay busy. Being held responsible for other peoples area of jewelry during daily inventory. Too many young new hires that don't take the nuts and bolts of the job seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some of your salespeople with more common sense more management responsibilities...

    Pros

    They offer health benefits after 90 days and 1 weeks paid vacation after 1 year. You can also earn sick leave.

    Cons

    They work you like a dog. There is little to no training, they just throw you in the ring. Commission seems good at first but the shopping guides on the ships and the managers bust the commission down to 1%. Prices are high and some of the quality of merchandise they expect you to sell seems poor. It's all about getting as much money out of the customer as you can. Poor attitudes all around.

    I worked at Diamonds International full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Hard to come up with one, but I'll give it a try. Good insurance plan if you can afford it. You may get a chance to travel. You get to say you worked in the diamond industry. You'll meet influential people with high end brands that might give you a job when you quit or get fired. Also, at least your check will be correct and on time...

    Cons

    No real upward mobility unless you are a Jewish Male or related to the owners. Promises made when hired are rarely delivered on. Major political rift between the sibling owners which cause major obstacles to progress and growth within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you hire a person to do a job based on their expertise and education... Listen to them! Following other peoples trends doesn't always work in the company's benefit, because by the time you see it, it's already old news.
