    Pros

    If you are someone who likes to provide the best experience to your clients and develop long lasting relationships, than Omega is for you. This company provides amazing training and support that you don’t receive in other places. In Omega you are always noticed and rewarded for a hard work. The BIG plus is that Omega is focused on promoting talented individuals within the organization.

    Cons

    There are no cons for me so far. I love my job and people I work with.

    I worked at Omega Boutique full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits for retirement plan

    Cons

    No work ethics they do not care about employees

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on employees that truly want to succeed and grow with the company. There is no one on one at all. Your achievements are never recognized

    I worked at Omega Boutique full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers were mostly easy to get along with, tons of foot traffic easy to make connections with potential clients. Very large, expansive space.

    Cons

    Temperamental upper management, caters mainly to Mandarin clients. No clear direction of where the store is heading. Missed the forecast or lied entirely about being worth $25M in sales, more like $12-$15M at best.

    Advice to Management

    Find a better way to manage your sales staff, even though this is an at-will state, there is need to be terminated without any prior notice and for absolutely no reason.

    Pros

    Smart TV in break room, security guards and cleaning crew are cool.

    Cons

    Mid & upper-level mgmt are complete and total failures. No vision or SOP's. Built on quid-pro-quo relationships. Bait & switch job roles; They will sell you a dream and render you a nightmare to work in (similar to its products). This is the last place a watchmaker should go to work. Mgmt will just have you juggle endless quick services, QC's and diagnostics until kingdom come, while no watchmaking ever gets done.

    Advice to Management

    Look at a career change or departmental direction change (won't likely happen) because you a destroying the hopes of current and future watchmakers, coming straight from school when it is most important for them to learn fundamentals.

    Pros

    Good pay, nice watches. If you're lucky you'll work with people who are actually welcoming. I'm forced to write more but really that's about it.

    Cons

    They have no idea how to train people. And when you try to ask for assistance or give feedback on what works best with you- you get "everyone did it this way so it's the way you'll do it too" doesn't that sound very "if everyone jumped off a bridge, would you?"

    Complaining that the store is understaffed and there's so much work to do but you refuse help? Makes no sense. How about the quicker you integrate people into the store the quicker you'll have people able to take the load off?

    There's so much to complain about but after reading other people's reviews on Glassdoor I'm biting my tongue in the store cause I don't want to be disliked and have drama which will ultimately lead the company to want to push me out or find ways to fire me.

    Advice to Management

    Train your glorified sales people or supervisors? Whatever you want to want to call them to actually be leaders. Most of your supervisors are a joke.

    I worked at Omega Boutique full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    History, timepieces, training, testing and everything about the brand is great! Getting to know clients and really being able to know and teach them history is a huge plus.

    Cons

    Do not even try and tell HR a problem, especially the one in charge she will only insult you and make it look like all was your fault. What you say in confidence will NEVER BE, because they leak all the information and turn everything around to make you look bad. You can NEVER speak your mind, trust upper management (some are cool but others not), one that is always on the phone talking smack about upper management and all other managers who aren't up to his standards or pretty, thinking he's God gift ( NOT), and who gets away with doing nothing while his minions do everything because he is so incompetent. If he didn't have help, nothing would get done, definitely not a leader (look in the mirror buddy, you are not a leader, just a dictator) and God forbid management doesn't like you, do not even ask to advance because it will never happen. Dedication, top sales and loving the brand will not get you anywhere if you are not liked. People who do nothing get away with it and take up space, others that work and make it happen get picked on, abused and completely looked over or worked harder. What a shame, Switzerland corp should really do their own investigation secretly with ex employees and current to learn the truth about who they have running their company in the US.

    Good luck!

    Advice to Management

    Take a lesson and change your ways, you
    Might get found out how fake you are. Remember everything you do and say can be detailed. Treat others how you would want to be treated, lead and hold others hand, not dictate with a scare tactic. When you have a worker who is dedicated and hard working that is the one you should retain and move up, promote from within, not hire someone who knows nothing of the industry.

    Pros

    I immediately felt that I was being taken care of and valued as part of the team. As there are only a couple of interns at a time, you are given a lot of responsibility, which allows you to learn a great deal early on. I felt valuable and helpful from the start of my experience. My supervisors also made sure I was learning and exercising new skills almost every day. The Omega team is a close-knit group and the environment is very welcoming.

    Cons

    Some days, I had nearly no tasks and found myself with not much to do besides menial tasks. This could have been because other employees were not aware that I was available to help them, as there is always something to be done in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Do not hesitate to give your interns more work, as we are eager to help. Even if the tasks seem inconsequential, it is all a part of the learning experience.
