I worked at Sterling Jewelers part-time for more than a year

Pros

Great discount, love working hours, meeting new people

Cons

Assistant manager took my sales and brought it up to manager and didn't do anything about it. If you become too reliable for them they will take advantage of you.

    I have been working at Sterling Jewelers full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Career advancement opportunity. Nice benefits package, 401k, medical, dental, vision, prescription, stock savings plan...
    Nice merchandise discount

    Cons

    work life balance for management. Store manager minimum work schedule is 48 (minimum!) per week. 5 day and 6 day rotating work schedule. Too little training, people promoted too quickly and fail to succeed, When ones fail and turn over is high, the cycle of promoting people who are not trained/not prepared and ultimately fail, is perpetuated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to a "big picture" view of what it takes to be a leader. Leaders must be successful and lead by example, but must also have leadership abilities. Allow managers to manage and to sell- to many processes to manage have gotten in the way of teaching, coaching and relationship building with associates and with guests.
