    I have been working at Precision Time part-time

    Pros

    Slow as hell
    Get to work on really nice watches

    Cons

    Corporate is horrid, they have messed up my pay twice in the few months I've been here
    Commission on some things go as little as .25% sometimes you will sell a 79 dollar watch and receive $ 0.13 while a $16 battery gives you $0.64 doesn't make sense.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so stingy with commission, in your emails you act like you don't care about the stores or the employees at all, just the sales figures.

    Go sit on a cactus

    Great customers, hands-on work, very rewarding if you love watches

    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.

    Pros

    Day blows by real fast...

    Cons

    The reasons that the day blows by...
    crawling around on the mall floor to close up the store using this disgusting dirty old tarp. Dang!

    Advice to Management

    Be more realistic about what a manager can achieve in one month with a broken down 20 year old kiosk and an antiquated computer system that craps out constantly while ringing out customers.

    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.
