Enjoyable and learning experience

Sales (Current Employee)
Paramus, NJ

I have been working at Fast-Fix Jewelry & Watch Repair part-time for more than a year

ProsI went in there knowing basically nothing about jewelry or watches. Depending on who owns that store itself, you learn a lot. Both of retail and jewelry and watches.

ConsNot many benefits at all.

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter organization is key for a company like this.

Ask many question, & get the answers in writing before you accept this job.

Store Manager (Former Employee)
King of Prussia, PA

I worked at Fast-Fix Jewelry & Watch Repair

ProsCustomers are very sweet & bring in the most amazing pieces. The jewelers are EXTREMELY talented.

ConsCorporate did not want to own stores, had poor communication, unorganized corporate office. Absolutely no benefits of any kind unless a franchisee decides to offer them.

Advice to Senior ManagementOpen a location near you & run it for a while. When you have solid leadership in a store, leave it alone. Turning over your store managers every 3months reflects poorly on upper level mgt.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good learning experience

Sales (Current Employee)

I have been working at Fast-Fix Jewelry & Watch Repair

ProsWhen you work for this company, you end up learning a lot about business in general and the jewelry business if you pay attention. There are plenty of opportunities to learn new techniques and tools of the trade.

ConsNo benefits. Advancing in the company isn't terribly easy - there is no solid direction for you to go in.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou guys are doing a great job with the company in spite of this economic environment. I would like to see some opportunities for employees to get involved in corporate or allowing good ideas to be spread around your stores. Good ideas should be fostered.
