    I have been working at Sterling Jewelers full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - excellent benefits
    - excellent discount
    - has potential to be great environment given correct management team
    - only promote from within
    - involved with St. Jude foundation

    Cons

    - I tried to request the same 2 nights off every week so I could go back to school and was informed it is against policy
    - pay is embarrassingly low, commission doesn't offer the control of that you would think unless your store has high traffic
    - part of the job is soliciting passersby to open a credit card with the company
    - I personally had a very bad manager who has had numerous complaints brought against him and yet still somehow has his job
    - still goaled and expected to be in the store during snow storms and hurricanes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - start paying your employees for the level of work you wish them to do
    - don't promise tuition assistance on an interview if actually attending school while working for your company is against policy
    - don't ask your employees to risk their lives driving through a natural disaster to open a store in an empty mall

    I have been working at Sterling Jewelers full-time

    Pros

    Easy to advance quickly. Good benefits and insurance available. Bonus & Trip Incentives. Hard work results in more work, which is not always a pro!

    Cons

    Demanding atmosphere invades personal life. Lack of leadership but expected results. Disingenuous style of praise unless management directly profits. Home Office sales support has little understanding of in store situations and guest interaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Home Office sales support should have in store experience and be more willing to help sales associates go above and beyond to help guests. Instead they give no additional options based on guests requests to benefit store or company sales.
