I worked at Sterling Jewelers full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Sterling Jewelers offers deeply discounted jewelry to its employees and a work-out room for break-time or lunch. There is some room for promotion from within. There is a profit-sharing bonus at the end of the year.

Cons

Their hourly , full-time pay is rather low, but not too bad for entry-level positions. There are few women in higher positions, for which the company was challenged in court.

    I have been working at Sterling Jewelers full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are the best I've seen or heard of in the area. Fantastic job security. Co-workers are generally good people to be around.

    Cons

    Constant mandatory overtime over 5-6 months drastically reduces personal time. Policies that have been in place for 20+ years get changed with no prior notice of potential change and are announced to affected personnel last minute before being implemented. Like it or leave attitude among mid-level management. Support for career advancement and education are wonderful, as long as they do not interfere with the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You say that the employees are the companies best asset, but it's rarely felt by the entry level personnel. Some of your employees are students trying to earn degrees to move beyond entry level, but the workload demands and inflexibility make it seem that the company does not want to see advancement from entry level distribution personnel.
