    I worked at Harry Ritchie Jewelers (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hours are fair,
    There is a lot of room for growth,
    We moved while I was employed there and they extended an offer for me to transfer to a location in the town we moved to - was above and beyond.
    Coworkers are upbeat & friendly,
    Benefits package is great,
    Vacation paid,
    Pay competitive

    Cons

    Hours vary from day to day which can be hard if you have a family. There are some meetings, retreats, and things that are in addition to your hours. They are nice, and necessary, but these can make it difficult if you have a family as well.

    Advice to Management

    Really appreciated working with the company, have nothing but positive things to say! My experience with the company was a great one! I'd likely still be working with the company had we not had to move so far from any locations. Thanks for a great experience!
