    Results Matter, But NOT Employees....especially if you are NOT '6-for-6'!

    Pros

    Good discount on merchandise...great place to build relationships with customers...outstanding training materials (not 'trainers) because a jewelers work is a 'trade'...potentially good road to promotion IF the leadership likes you.

    Cons

    Must be a very 'motivated' sales hound with a knowledge of jewelry to be successful in what can be a 'cut-throat' environment. Hourly pay and group goal driven commission dollars will leave you looking for another source of income. Poor leadership at the District Manager level and up,;too political, too 'what have you done TODAY'. Even at store level...employee relationships can be kind of' 'clique driven'. No loyalty for a job well done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate the district managers you have in place in the Atlanta market. People are not treated in a fair and equitable way across the board. Provide training incentives for making your goals day-to-day and month'-to-month instead of threatening people's livelihood and making them feel like failures.
