    Pros

    Good name recognition.
    Employee discount.
    Not too cut throat compared to other commission jobs.
    Nice jewelry for low prices.

    Cons

    The pay for a commission job is very low, you could never live on this job alone.
    The customers are... sorry to say this... lower class and extremely rude.
    The job has a huge amount of expectations and responsibilities... counting diamonds and solving issues with that, handling repairs, productivity and care plan quotas, changing batteries and fixing links on watches... and more.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be cheap with commission salespeople.
