    Pros

    Wha tI like so much about being a part-time employee at Helzberg Diamonds is that they offer a retirement package even though I do not work full time. I was pleasantly surprised that they would car enough for my future to offer that benefit.

    Cons

    The slower seasons are really painstaking.

    Pros

    Company has been around for a long time customer usually have been showing there for 20-40 years and have passed the tradition down to their children. Company has a great warranty and repair plan for jewelry. Least amount of complaint from customer compared to any company I have worked for in the past.

    Cons

    Terrible training, Company wants managers to compete against store employees for sales. The low commission is disgraceful. You work so hard to get a tiny commission check. Mall hours to get ready for a crazy life.

    Advice to Management

    Considered having more diverse selection of jewelry ( Modern Pieces) to expand on already longtime clientele. And imagine what store employees feel when they receive a tiny check for all their hard-work; consider how discouraging it is, appreciate your front line a little more.

    Pros

    Great working environment and outstanding training!

    Cons

    Great only if you love working with people and can work as a team. Need to be able to handle fast paced learning, goes beyond jewelry sales

    I worked at Helzberg Diamonds full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    National chain, mostly good people.

    Cons

    Really went downhill after new CEO in 2010. Quality of mdse, pay policies, commission structure.
    They changed the monthly sales plans 3 times in 2010.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stoop to the other Mall Jewelers level.
