    Pros

    Customers, good discounts,flexible schedule, good location

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about anything, but making money. Talk behind your back. Fake, fake, fake!!!!!! very low pay, senseless store changes & consentant calling of customers for stupid partys. All jewelry is made in China so it's pretty much junk! problems, and returns all day long.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your sales people with respect! Stop giving all perks to management & stop the calls people are sick of it!

    I have been working at Brighton Collectibles part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The hourly Pay is better than most retail stores and the customers are usually better than most retail.

    Cons

    Could use better understanding between home office and retail store. Communication isn't very god and things are not done in a timely manner

    Advice to Management

    Could definitely be better with regard to getting merchandise to stores in a timely manner and the depth sane with resets and marketing materials.

    Pros

    This family owned company offers a very creative environment with lots of opportunities to collaborate with others.

    Cons

    The fast paced work environment is very challenging and exciting but can also be difficult for someone who needs a more structured and organized work place.

    Advice to Management

    The ideal person to work at Brighton will be self motivated, a team player and capable of finding creative solutions to problems.

    Pros

    A family owned Company, so in turn they treat us better them most retail stores. Extremely friendly home office. Also send us on a yearly training trip to LA. Along with tons of contest a spiffs to win trips, products or extra cash.

    Cons

    Sense they are family owed sometimes they can be a bit unorganized or last minute on setting up promos or new events.

    Advice to Management

    Stay organized and remember it takes time to do it right, you know many of the events annual so preparation should start in advance not finalizing while event starting, this doesn't give teams in store the best foundation to be successful.

    Pros

    Nice people, good cookies, and employee discount.
    Good place to learn sales/retail.
    Great products that last.

    Cons

    Strict selling rules, sometimes too much info to spit out to the customer
    Some sales partners were too competitive for their sales numbers even though there was little to no compensation for going above and beyond your sales goal.
    An older work environment, sometimes training new employees they wouldn't take me serious because I was 10+ years younger.
    Hated making calls to the customers as reminders. People don't want to be bothered that much.

    Advice to Management

    Update the computers in the stores. Somehow shorten the length of time it takes to send items off for repair and get them back.
