    Pros

    Benefits for full time, ok pay for experienced people

    Cons

    They only hire people with zero jewelry sales experience, so you are constantly fixing newbie mistakes. If you are a key holder, assistant manager, or manager you can kiss your life goodbye because you will be living at work. You must be 6/6 standards (sales, addons, repairs, PPP, esp, and credit apps) at all times to be even be acknowledged you exist by upper management. They expect you to walk around the mall and harass people for credit apps. Upon getting hired, they expect you to also harass your friends and family to fill out a credit app. If you don't get your credit apps, you must go to weekly meetings or even call your district manager and tell him/her why you do not care about your job at the end of every shift. They will offer you a promotion, then give it to someone else the next day. The t.i.p.s line means nothing, they never follow up with anything. Upper management sweeps unethical and illegal behavior under the rug as long as you have your numbers in. This company is a joke. They do not care about their employees, they see you as a gigantic dollar sign or their dancing monkeys to make them money. Yet, they pay you dirt, including managers, if you expect to make over 40k as a manager you are mistaken. They fool managers into taking the position with crappy pay by saying they will get a bonus every April. Well, if you are a manager in a smaller volume store your bonus won't be jack. The commission scale is bull, they start out at HALF a percent and you can only make a max of 3% IF the STORE doubles its goal. In this economy, forget about it. Search for employment elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your managers and employees like dogs.
