    I have been working at Fast-Fix Jewelry & Watch Repair part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the things I like most are the Flexible hours, interesting work, easy dress code, job ownership, varied sitting and standing work. Easy on the body.

    Cons

    Do not expect any of positive feed back. Must be willing to continually learn and expand capabilities.

    Advice to Management

    Recognition of a job well done, or even a good effort would go a long way. Work on ability to trust people.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The feeling of accomplishment every time you hand a customer an item that you fixed with your own hands; medical; dental; 401k. If you like to fix small things such as Watches, cell phones/tables, Jewelry, Eyeglasses, key fobs, they also do engraving and custom jewelry design.

    Cons

    Management, Mall hours takes up you're entire day,

    Advice to Management

    If an Employee is unsatisfactory management or not they should be delta with As if they where any other employee. And the management should be held accountable for their actions.

    I have been working at Fast-Fix Jewelry & Watch Repair full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Franchise based company so some owners are personal, down to earth and willing to pay for employees that will work hard and bring talent to them.

    Cons

    A revolving door of sales or as most call them "watch techs". Skilled staff, i.e: watch makers, jewelers, managers are regarded highly. But your sales/battery changer position person is completely replaceable. Though that can't be too harsh of a criticism since the retail sales market is exactly that to begin with.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to retain the sales staff worth keeping

    I worked at Fast-Fix Jewelry & Watch Repair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company is well capitalized, and is poised to grow larger. Company is small, but growing. Industry is small. Strong workers have possibility to grow career here.

    Cons

    Compensation and benefits are lower than typical companies. Not much training, or work direction, and employees must be discipline and self starters.

    Advice to Management

    The Company needs some diversity

    I worked at Fast-Fix Jewelry & Watch Repair part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Wasn't stressful -Wasn't busy -Wasn't worry some -No micro managing -VERY laid back -Got to learn from Jewelers -Easy company to learn from to get your foot into the door in jewelry

    Cons

    -No benefits -Not a lot of employees to be able to cover you when you go on vacation -Unproffesional at times -People always think their jewelry is the best and it's really... Not. (So a lot of stuck up customers) -Some Jewelers you work with are great, others are lazy and make up things for you to say so they won't have to do their job, and YOU have to tell the customer

    Advice to Management

    Hire better Jewelers that WANT TO WORK.

    I worked at Fast-Fix Jewelry & Watch Repair part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Not many benefits offered. But the flexibility of hours and scheduling compensates.

    Advice to Management

    Better organization is key for a company like this. Hire the right people.

    micro-managed by owner leaving manager to not be able to manage; not all are treated equal; present commissions unrealistic and can change at moments notice and at times shared w/manager even if solely your sale

    Advice to Management

    let manager manage and be more realistic about what one will make in commissions
