    Pros

    Helzberg Diamonds has; with out a doubt, the best leadership training program I have ever seen. I have had the opportunity to work with some very talented people over the years, but I can say without hesitation, the quality of the people "top to bottom" at Helzberg is All-Star quality. One particular training module that sticks out was their "Performance Problem Solving" session. While the core principles of this program were very basic, understanding how to consistently apply the skills learned in a very logical sequence was huge for me. In fact, I now train other retailers across the country on addressing performance problems.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize available technology to accurately measure traffic and conversion rates

    Pros

    Company culture is positive. If you work hard, the pay is good. Career advancement opportunities are good

    Cons

    Since being bought out by Berkshire Hathaway, they have gradually scaled back commissions & employee discount.

    Advice to Management

    The company expects managers to be positive to the extreme & sometimes that puts managers in a position where they feel they cannot communicate honestly with sales associates. Remember that your sales associates will work harder if given some buy-in on making the store goal.

    I have been working at Helzberg Diamonds full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Helzberg is an amazing place to work. A place where you will make your own destiny. You can go as far as you want with this company. Helzberg is a very positive environment to work in. I came from a dog eat dog company where I struggled to get ahead. Here I've been nothing but happy and my career has advanced 10 fold.

    Cons

    Work personal life balance but any real retail job is that way...

    Pros

    Company truly cares about its employees and my coworkers were great.

    Cons

    It's retail, so of course hours and weekends and holidays are going to be a challenge if you're expecting to work M-F 8-5 then this is not a good fit.
