Pros

National chain, mostly good people.

Cons

Really went downhill after new CEO in 2010. Quality of mdse, pay policies, commission structure.
They changed the monthly sales plans 3 times in 2010.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't stoop to the other Mall Jewelers level.

    Pros

    This company holds high ethical standards when it comes to how they conduct business. With so many jewelry stores resorting to dishonest practices in order to make money, it is a real pro that helzberg prohibits it. also offers benefits to fulltime employees, bereavement, and paid vacation after a year of employment.

    Cons

    It's a very corporate culture here; there is an extensive amount of minuscule rules that are strictly enforced when it comes to how to conduct business and do your job. Sales associates arent given the opportunity to have any real voice or impact on making changes. The hiring process is lengthy and the phone interview asks counter-intuitive questions that seemed to be quite invasive and irrelevant to determining one's present capacity to be a good employee.
