    Pros

    They are members of the American Gem Society. There are many different and reasonable price points to work with. The benefit package seems good.

    Cons

    Terrible commission rate ( starting at 1/2 a percent! ) , the goals are hard to obtain and unrealistic during these times. NO training, you really have to figure it all out on your own. Managers and assistant managers are given high goals, so they basically take all the sales. They really mislead me about how things are handled.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be training their sales staff in order to build a strong team. They should never gossip about other employees and talk in detail about their personal lives and problems

    Pros

    The discount for employees is excellent. The close relationship between co-workers is nice. They are a very ethical and stable company, part of the Berkshire Hathaway portfolio. They have recently become members of the American Gem Society, and have the latest state of the art tools for looking at and learning about diamonds. They reimburse for training upon completion.

    Cons

    I have found that they lie to you about promotions. They do not pay well, and don't give raises out fairly. Even if you meet and exceed your goals, they always find something to put you down about. Upper management seems to enjoy intimidating employees. They constantly change the rules on how they want you to do things. Way to much gossip and much of it is started from upper management. Constantly passing the buck when mistakes are made. They make huge deals out of minor mistakes. There is a lot of favoritism that goes on. The comission structure is a joke. They have taken away a lot of benefits and perks in the past few years.

    Advice to Management

    Set better examples from the top down. If upper management wouldn't intimidate store management, I think it would be a better work environment.
