    I worked at Precision Time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great training, product knowledge, and small business understanding. Commissions on services and store branded watches are great!

    Cons

    Name branded watches do not produce much commission. Overall, unless you are management it is hard to make a living here unless you have another part time job.

    Advice to Management

    Adjust the pay of teams to retain the good ones.

    I worked at Precision Time full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you like watches you will love this job. You develop an expertise in an industry you love, learn a skill in fixing watches, and customer interaction is generally friendly. As far as sales go this is a good job where you don't have to be to pushy, and can just be informative and friendly. This is how I attained top commissions at my store in Albany for a year straight. Highly recommend!

    Cons

    small struggling store did not have enough hours to give me, I was supposed to be full time but averaged about 27 hours a week

    I worked at Precision Time part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fixing and learning about watches is really fun. Seeing new and different watches that come into the store from the customers is really interesting. Precision Time has a great setup for that. Excellent opportunity to learn actual sales strategies.

    Cons

    They overcharge for most of the basic services they offer, and the customers hate it. The employment system is garbage. The only reason I stayed there as long as I did was because my manager knew it to and was pretty cool guy to help mitigate it the atrocity that is corporate. No growth opportunity. Shrinking commission structure. Minimum wage pay doesn't match work. No real reward for hitting impossible sales goal unless you're a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the BUSINESS side of things. The weak training programs and poorly functioning website is indicative of your lack of care for anything beyond your paycheck. Which includes your bottom line employees, where your sales ACTUALLY happen. Good workers make good sales. Great incentives and compensation make great salesman. Your product line is really good; ADVERTISE it. Your high service prices, while indicative of the quality of work you do on watches, needs to be competitively priced.

    Lastly, I think the one opportunity missed most is the opportunity to educate oneself on watch making. Offer to partially pay for watch making school to high potential employees. A sizeable team hand making your existing product line in America with swiss techniques would make your product explode instead of careless Chinese imports.

    I have been working at Precision Time part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working in a mall environment can be fun, and working alone in a kiosk means you're going to be doing sales, inventory, cash audits, etc. Lots of good experience for a better opportunity in the future

    Cons

    Lots of pressure to hit rather outlandish sales goals, low pay, crappy commission structure, part time hours, and overbearing district/area management that try to micromanage everything.

    Advice to Management

    I've seen the sorts of profits the average store generates, you can afford to compensate your sales associates and general store managers better than you are. Minimum wage and a 1-4% commission on revenue isn't good enough.

    Pros

    You can prove yourself quickly if you're driven to do so.

    Cons

    Shrinking commission structure, limited room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Quit trimming your already low commission structure and find better ways to motivate your employees instead of low-value giveaways.

    Pros

    Great customers and if you enjoy working on small objects it's wonderful.
    You meet wonderful people at the jewelers and in the malls.

    Cons

    They LIE! They will tell you that your hours are based on productivity but if you sell very well they can't give you the hours you are due. The district manager is not willing to help you with customer complaints. They will tell you that upper management will have your back and if you have any questions to give upper management a call (ie District or Regional Manager) but if you do that then you will actually get yelled at. If you try to move up in the company it's extremely difficult if you accomplish it at all. All around it is a horrible place to work at.

    Advice to Management

    Back your team and actually find out what is going on from team members instead of just district or regional managers. Don't keep your best sales members at an entry level otherwise they will get bored and leave.

    I have been working at Precision Time full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    learn the ins and outs of watches, one of the most open companies when it comes to their cost, and pretty friendly people to work with.

    Cons

    Management never follows through with their "leveling" up the latter. The training manual says that you should be level 2 certified after 90 days, and level 3 certified after 120 days, but it can take up to 6 months to cert someone. and its only after one year or the level 3 certification that you can see any chance of getting a pay increase. Because its only the DM that can cert someone and they never seem to take the time.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you can do what you promise.
