Pros

Nice, laid back Managers. There is a good team environment for the most part. Benefits are average.

Cons

Random schedule that impacts your life in a negative way. If you are married or have a family and want to spend time with them, this might not be the place for you. The retail schedule has no regularity and doesn't allow you to plan much. The schedule is the main complaint here. The jeweler expectations are not exactly what they said they would be. They tell you that you that the expectation is 2 jobs per hour, but in reality sometimes there expectation is four or five jobs per hour. They count pearl stringing as one job--even if it takes 4 hours. The 2 jobs an hour is just a monthly average. Sometimes there are 3-4 jobs in one, which still counts as one job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give the jewelers a different schedule than the sales staff or let them make their own schedule. As long as the work is getting done that shouldn't be a problem. Jewelers used to make their own schedule and where much happier.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at Shane is to be able quit when you find a real company to work for. They have perfected the art of micro managing employees to a science.

    Cons

    managers condone and often participate in egotistical, racial and sexual discrimination practices.

    Pros

    Money is good, thats how they get you in the door.

    Cons

    VERY MICRO MANAGED TO THE 10TH DEGREE. They like to write you up for every stupid little thing. If you have never been in retail, you can probably work in that enviorment. Employees on edge and hoping they say all the right things when selling, as a staff member or manager will be standing by to listen. You cant relax and be yourself . They want you to sell their way or the highway. Everyone works Sundays always, maybe 1 weekend off a year. You can't plan your life. You have to plan it around the Shane Co.
