  1. "Unstable management, but ok for younger people to get job skills"

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, nice commissions, trunk shows are super fun. Good for building transferrable job skills like handling conflict, customer/client needs etc

    Cons

    Management was super unstable and the company changed hands multiple times.

    In my two years there, I had three managers (one of whom was there for 3.5 months) and I became the second most senior employee within my first 8 months.

    Advice to Management

    Let go of the 'old jewelry' ways. People don't like getting a phone call from someone they bought a necklace from 6 months ago.

    I have been working at Bailey Banks and Biddle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company is under new management, there are a lot of changes happening for the better. New brands are being incorporated back in to the company along with a new commission structure. This company has great potential to grow back to where they use to be, corporate office is very supportive.

    Cons

    Still having growing pains under new management. Lack of leadership from store manager, store manager needs to show a better sense of leadership.

    I have been working at Bailey Banks and Biddle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere of the store. The hours were decent and the store closed at 9pm.

    Cons

    Not many people know who the store is and their history. Stock was not continuously restocked such as that in a larger store.
