Pros

not many, nice working with clients. 401k is nice

Cons

No support from DM, long hours, no breaks, high stress job, no off time, too much turn over with staff because part timers are paid too little for what they do so they leave for better jobs.
exhausting and not enough coverage

Advice to Management

more payroll to stores to provide better service

    Pros

    The people, on the rare times you are not working single coverage shifts, that you work with. The customers who you work with on a day to day basis

    Cons

    Senior leadership has no idea on how to run the store operationally because they have not worked a day in one in their life. Not enough grid hours to run the store effectively, you will be working as a "store manager" in the store 90% of the time mainly selling in single shift coverages. Bank deposit drops at night, clearly no regard for employee safety, bank was 10+ miles away from store. Training is POOR. Most of the stores in the company are kisosks, relocation is possible but it more than likely will be to a mall kiosk. Advancement is a joke, in my region alot of the managers had been waiting 10+ years in the same position. Pay starting off (32-24k) for managers is very very low considering the job you have to do of selling, setting visual displays and figuring a day off for yourself. IF you have a life, family or both this is not the job for you. Since you are in single coverage shifts dont bank on having time to eat lunch (no fridge or microwave provided) or using the bathroom since you arent aloowed to leave the store at all. If someone is sick you have a high possibilty you will be working a 11 hr day because their will only be 4 of you working as SM, AM and two part timers. You will get more seasonal hrs to hire, but only during holidays. Products you sell are horrible, jewelry tarnishes within days and if you stare at a bracelet worng it will break (exagerrating but not by much!). Have fun trying to explain to your customers why their things fall apart within hours of buying products.
    Stalker-like mandatory sales dialouge. Youll will have to learn how to engrave, and will be the guru of your store. Good luck utilizing this skill outside of this company. Watse of time.

    Advice to Management

    Take the sales manager responsibilites away from Trainers so that training can be their priority. Add more grid hours to improve customer service and efficiency. Have DMs get operational experience so they know exactly what the employees that they are managering are doing and can give sustainable feedback.
