Typical jewellry sales job, lots of pressure with no benefits
sales associate (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BC9 December 2015
Nice attractive store to work in and beautiful merchandise to sell. Management promised to be supportive and that they would provide time and adequate training to learn and grow with the job, but that was all just talk. Manager placed ridiculously high personal sales goals despite lack of customers. Manager preached to the employees on how important it was to be as fake and aggressive as possible with customers and to not educate customers on what they were buying or the quality of the items. I was taught to and expected to practically jump onto the backs of customers within seconds of the customer even glancing into the shop showcase. (*Tip* manager will be just as fake with their employees as they are with their customers). I recived about a week of minimal training and after that was expected to perform the same if not better then employees that had been there for years. Manager supported and encouraged childish and catty gossip among employees and used this to manipulate employees. You get paid minimum wage to just a couple dollars over minimum wage to work with toxic manipulative people in a high stress high pressure environment. They do try to tempt you with promise of comission to pad your meager pay cheques, but you have to meet your high personal sales quota first. they always find a way to avoid giving you your commission using an abundant amount of excuses. I had the fact that I was "lucky enough" to get paid $12 an hour waved over my head like I had been blessed by the retail employment gods. Manager consistently on your back about "bringing your sales numbers up",  more... but never gives you even a pat on the back when you do. Unless you enjoy the idea of working in a personal torture that's a mix between your worst high school drama memories and slave labour, don't even bother applying here. But if this by chance sounds like the exact job for you, I advise that you put on your resume and job application under your personal qualities and beneficial skills: "has no self respect or any idea of self worth", "loves working like a dog and enjoys being treated even worse then one". If you put anything along those lines in your resume I'm sure you will make it to the top of the pile. Good luck to you!  less
Pros
They do give you a $35 allowance for staff dinners or events
Cons
the $35 allowance does not cover beverages, which you will have a great need for after working here
