    Pros

    Sterling offers an exceptional work environment and opportunity for advancement. For someone who is truly interested in having a career and putting forth the effort to grow professionally, there are many opportunities. The benefits package is great, having recently moved to a different insurance carrier. I've seen many companies that do not offer vision, but our vision package is outstanding.

    Cons

    When promotions are available or positions open, it sometimes seems that management already has someone in mind. The recognition provided always seems to go to the same individuals each year, though I know they have been working to revamp that.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more communication.

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity for advancement. Some of the best benefits I've ever had at a job. Can be fun if you're working with a good crew of people. It's a pleasure to help people purchase items that will always have special meaning to them.

    Cons

    Retail hours are very demanding. You have to make the most of your time off and plan a month or two in advance for personal appointments. At times it gets a little bit boring if the store is not busy.

    Advice to Management

    Fewer meetings. Personal time respected. Time off granted if given enough notice. Overall, a great company to work for and to purchase jewelry from though!

    Pros

    No where else are you going to make over 80,000 a year with out a college education. If you work hard the skies the limit.

    Cons

    You will be working lots of hours. You will work Sundays and nights.

    Advice to Management

    You need to pay more attention to the people that have been loyal and worked for you over the years. I looked at my Mangers meeting the other day and you had one out 14 managers over the age of 40.

    Hierarchical Management is very involved with all associates. They understand that their most valuable assets are their employees and customers.
