Former Employee - Manager  in  Irving, TX
Former Employee - Manager in Irving, TX

Pros

This once great company offered broad based opportunities from the field to the office. They had a rightfully deserved rep as the leaders in the retail jewelry industry.

Cons

The revolving door to the executive suite has left a legacy of turmoil and unfocused change. Fear, confusion and political tribalism prevail. When the new regime takes power, everything their predecessors did is deemed worthless and thrown out. Start from scratch, everything we do now is pure genius. Turn over the entire team. Lather, rinse, repeat. So it goes, on and on. Constant retracing of the same path to ruin. The price paid for all of this is felt up and down the line.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a plan and stick with it for more than 2 years.

    Pros

    Zales offers a place to learn and grow, while having a work-life balance. You have a lot of amenities at the corporate headquarters such as an onsite cafeteria, credit union, salon, child care, company store, covered parking, and fitness center. It is centrally located in the Metroplex and is located in an upscale part of the city.

    Cons

    The economy can turn volatile with retail so employment can vary depending upon the circumstances. Pay is fair but not what it could, or should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep all communication open.

    There are fringe benefits for full time employees and management and regional managers.Part time employees are getting screwed over left and right!!!! meaning no vacation no personal days not even a leg to stand on , Etc You're over worked and and definetly underpaid. Management and regional management get all the reconingtion the sales staff are treated like CRAP!!!!! .Oh if you're the not the right color you will not get a raise or a higher postion, Employees that have been there a very long time are stuck in the same postions are still there in the same postions all the wrong people get promoted and raises, when they don't deserve to be promoted or get raises.
