    Don't count on anything until after it happens, and then look around.

    I worked at Sterling Jewelers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The insurance is great. If you are high enough management, you have work/life balance. The employee discounts are pretty good. Sales commissions are great, based on store performance as well as personal performance. Manager's meetings at a resort.

    Cons

    Like I said... Don't count on anything until it actually happens. And then look around. Very high numbers plus sucking up will get you promoted. Some stores' staff is just cutthroat, and management doesn't care as long as someone gets the numbers. Training is almost null. Some of the management upper and store, believe they are God.

    Advice to Management

    Training, training, training. Don't just take someone off the street and wave a wand, "Poof" you are a jeweler. Training is key to the individual's and the company's success. Train associates to fill out paperwork properly and you will cut out a lot of confusion. Rid yourselves of those management upper and store, who believe they are God.

    Pros

    most people are fair minded and hard working

    Cons

    other people are into cliques and will work only within those cliques daily sales quotas out of line with reality (hello ... we are in a recession have to cold call prior customer to 'get them back in to spend $' have to hit repair quota have to hit credit quota have to hit payment protection plan quota have to hit add on quota have to hit timepiece quota have to hit enhanced service plan quota

    Advice to Management

    try spending some money on marketing during prime time highly rated tv programs quit the darn cold calling/trolling for sales from past customers rather, spend some money on sales leads from folks that haven't bought from our company
