    I worked at Reeds Jewelers full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Every day was interesting. There were no two days alike. Reeds is family owned and has a personal touch. Though credit application quotas were discussed every day, I have heard that our competitors are a lot harder on employees for missing their quotas. It's an interesting field that is a lot of fun to learn about. There are opportunities for education. Generous employee discounts. It was a rewarding job to be a part of our customers' special moments, helping them find the perfect piece.

    Cons

    It is a very stressful job that the pay doesn't always match. Work will be on your mind 24/7. One would be surprised to discover how many facets (ha!) there are to a jewelry store job. If you work for a smaller Reeds store with less traffic you will have fewer opportunities to make sales (and therefore commission). You must respect the training period and take it verrry slow (usually several months) before getting to a point where your fellow associates find it acceptable to share customers/sales with you. You will get pushed out FAST if you try to do too much too soon. With commission and "making numbers" being so important in this job, be prepared for A LOT of drama between associates. Because of this, you have to have thick skin for this job.
