Full Time Keyholder/Senior Sales Consultant (Former Employee), Erin Mills Town Centre, Ontario – March 9, 2013
Pros: got a good taste of the bad side of being a sales associate early
Cons: very stressful working environment
A typical day at work would be taking on extra responsibilities like finishing my manager's work so she can leave on time, fix broken poster frames so the store can properly display the new arrivals (took too long for the manager to get a replacement) and replacing burnt out display lights and ceiling lights because as per head office instructions we're – more... to reduce costs (no one else in the store wanted to do it so i did). – less
I know someone who worked there and she said it wasn't a nice atmosphere to work in. The senior leadership needs to take a hard look in the mirror and not treat their people with disrespect.
Job Work/Life Balance
Brand Ambassador/ Sales Representative (Current Employee), Mississauga, ON – June 11, 2012
Pros: free jewelery every so often
Cons: sometimes slow
A typical work day includes making sure all products are in order everything is clean and tidy and all paper work is filled out. What I learned gradually after the years being there is about the product, I know most of all the names of the pieces and about each of them. The co-workers are great which makes the workplace fun and enjoyable. The hardest – more... part about the job is I'm not there everyday so being updated is sometimes miscommunicated. The best part is the co-workers and the regular customers. – less

Store Manager (Current Employee), Hasselt België, VLG – March 12, 2014
Pros: clothing allowance
I like working at Swarovski, my day starts with cleaning the shop, making sure the till is counted and ready for business, at 10 we open and help our customers to a nice set of jewellery. Not only do we advise on what to wear, we help them choose the best for that special occasion. I have learnt to listen to the wishes of the customer. Co-workers must – more... make up the team, they must be willing to be part of a working team, be willing to put in an extra effort when it is needed. And they do so. The management is very supportive and listens to us. Hardest part of the job? There is none. Most enjoyable: seeing customers leaving the shop, happy and content, and seeing them returning is even more enjoyable, i want to make them at ease, like to see them returning, not only because the goods we sell are nice, but because they like the people that work here. – less
