  1.  

    The store performed above expectations, so I had little supervision.

    I worked at Whitehall Jewellers

    Pros

    Whitehall had many long term employees, this was because they felt that they were treated well by upper management. The stores were located in the prime malls and the company always had a strong promotion at holiday times.

    Cons

    Whitehall declared Chapter 7 Bankruptcy (liquidation) and is no longer in business

    Not the best experience

    I worked at Whitehall Jewellers full-time

    Pros

    I met a lot of great people during my time at Whitehall. I learned quite a bit about the jewelry industry and how I wanted to advance my own personal career goals within that industry.

    Cons

    It was not a positive experience. Management was interested in meeting sales goals but not interested in giving staff the tools to meet those goals. The result was a great deal of general unhappiness and turnover.

    Pros

    When family was involved, it was great.

    Cons

    Difficult last few years, but great memories..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When things got tough, they tried to do too much...good intentions, but too difficult. Should have stuck to the basics.

    I worked at Whitehall Jewellers

    Pros

    Employee discounts are higher than most of their competitors,
    Very flexible scheduling,
    401K and other "full-time" benefits available to part-time employees.

    Cons

    Low pay,
    Inept and unstable corporate management,
    No corporate support of Retail Locations,
    No fixed policies or structure,
    Very slow inventory restock

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Supporting the Retail Managers with sufficient and dependable inventory shipments, and timely processing of special orders would have made a huge impact on employee morale and store profit.
