I have been working at Helzberg Diamonds full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good discounts on jewelry, and coworkers are nice to work with

Cons

Very unprofessional management, lied about the pay during the interview there's no training and a huge gap between the 10+ experienced employees/management and the new employees. There's very obvious favoritism with management, overall very high stress for a low paying job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take time to give your employees real training and try to treat everyone fairly.

    3 years, started out good, then new CEO began downgrading Mdse and policies in 2010, not good.

    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.

    As long as you conform to the ways of Helzberg, you will do just fine.

    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.
