    Pros

    - Learning about Jewelry
    - Talking with Friendly Customers
    - Company Benefits

    Cons

    - Commission and Pay is a Joke.
    - Constant Competition and Feuds with Coworkers
    - Management Drinks the Kool Aid when it Comes to Unrealistic Sales Goals and Are Constantly on you.
    - You are Trained to Be extremely Pushy with Customers trying to Get them to Buy from the Moment they Walk Through the Door.
    - Standing All Day
    - Calling Customers to Bug them about coming back to buy something.

    Advice to Management

    - Make Commission a Constant 3%
    - Be more realistic with Sales Goals.

    Pros

    Selling jewelry, building customer relationships

    Constantly critisized, humiliated, belittled, told its not good enough, disrespected by management. Managers taking your sales just so they can make their goals, taking your sales, then told you're not making your goal. Horrible HR and payroll departments. No one cares about the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get some common sense. Treat your employees with respect.

    Pros

    Wonderful co-workers. Very helpful and team oriented. Management is nurturing and everyone wants to succeed.

    Cons

    Numbers are everything. The customers experience and their loyalty is what you are trained to cultivate but if you don't pop a big sale once a week then you'll never make your goals. If you're a newbie without any previous clients you will be easily be lose out on sales because most of the people that walk through the door already know who they want to deal with. Big sales occur after a number of visits by a customer and most times the person you were working with will wind up working with someone else.
