    I worked at Jared Galleria of Jewelry full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of experienced individuals to learn from. Lots of opportunity for self growth. Free Career training at HQ provided to employees that show potential.

    Cons

    Shop environment is very small, If a member quits or is fired, the remaining employees must pick up the slack. This can be very stressful if the position goes unfilled for a long time. Basically doing 2 or more people's jobs for really really low pay in the industry. 40 hrs MINIMUM. I don't think there was ever a time when I was able to leave when the schedule sad my shift was over. I don't think any employee in that shop got to leave on time either. So much work on so few people.

    Advice to Management

    Need to look at payment/salary for long term employees. You cant pay an experienced jeweler 10-11/hr and expect to keep them for more then a year, that kind of payment is incredibly low for people with experience the industry.
