The Freehold store is poorly managed and run by the associates most of whom were once managers.

Customer Experience Manager (Former Employee) Freehold, NJ

ProsThe company offers a generous discount to their associates and the men's collection is beautifully tailored. The jewelry is beautiful and well priced.

ConsThe women's collection is frumpy and not necessarily attractive to the average woman. It is designed boxy in shape and way overpriced. That particular location is plagued with too much gossip and backstabbing. The store manager is considered weak behind his back and not in control of the store.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a real good look at the Freehold location. Get rid of some of your associates who once managed a store or in some capacity were managers and cannot seem to comprehend that they are now associates and possibly need to find another job. Some of the 'star' sales people have an attitude of they cannot be touched and I think its time for them to go as well. All the negativity within the store is crippling.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
