Terrible Company to work for!! The will work You to bone and pay you nothing.
Sales Associate/Key Holder (Former Employee) – Sudbury, ON – 15 February 2018
Terrible company and environment to work. They pay you peanuts, commission is .05% you might get a 10 cent raise IF you hit all your sales targets. No pay increases for increased responsibility. The jewelery is all made overseas and falls apart. Worst job I have ever had!!
Jewellery Consultant (Former Employee) – Thornhill, ON – 17 January 2018
A good entry level job. Security of merchandise was a top priority. A typical day started inventory counts and security measures. The majority of customers were friendly and easy to deal with. The manager was very organized and fair. The other sales associates on the team were friendly and knowledgeable. The most difficult part of the job was meeting credit card sign-up quotas. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning the stories behind why a customer wants to purchase a particular piece of jewellery, ranging from promise rings to anniversaries, these stories were always heartwarming
Fun to work at the store level while micromanaged at the corporate level
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 January 2018
Heartless company closing 40 stores before Christmas with only 1 week notice. All managers in Corp attended a yearly conference which was very informative. Continues to increase financial expectations while dramatically cutting hours
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Chatham-Kent, ON – 18 November 2017
Duties included opening and closing the store as a key holder. Ordering merchandise for customers, sending things away to be repaired, helping them find the perfect gifts. I learned about gemstones, diamonds and precious metals. Holidays were extremely busy especially the Christmas season. This was my second job in customer service and would say it was by far my favourite.
Store Manager (Current Employee) – London, ON – 17 July 2017
Great store environment to work, decent work life balance. Poor District management. Layoff employees that consistently meet and/exceed targets while other stores struggle to hire. Has caught DM in multiple lies. Bonus program is decent.

While working at Peoples Jewellers I received excellent education about the jewellery world. It was very diverse and intriguing. Thank you for the fun experiences. However, full time jobs were not an option at my location and time.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – nonye;r business – 14 March 2017
When the company was Canadian owned it was great. Zales bought them out and it was pretty bad and now Signet bought it and is killing it slowly by cutting commissions, raising targets, no raises and tripling work load while short staffed. Worse everyday. Run like a true American company in Canada!!!!!!! Hate it now!
Going home at the end of the day
low wages, retail hours, high targets low commisions
Jewellery Consultant (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 5 January 2017
I loved working for Peoples Jewellers for two years. It was just time to advance to a company that was going to allow for further opportunities. The one downfall for working for the company was they allowed for very little family-work balance.
Jewellery Consultant (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 27 June 2016
it was seasonal i gained a lot of experience while working at peoples jewellers. the management was really friendly and helpful with anything but coworkers made this job a bit difficult because of competition with commision.
other employees would hate you if u get big sales = more commission
