Birks Store
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON6 September 2017
I have worked at a few other jewelry stores and of all the companies I have worked for I have enjoyed working at Birks the most. The people are friendly and there is room to advance if you want to do so.

Horrible atmosphere, the environment lacks any form of motivation. Overworked and grossly underpaid consultants.

Management and Corporate office undermines your success. Work environment lacks energy and is terribly negative. No reward for a job well done!!!

When you have found another job!!!!

Just another sales job
Sales (Former Employee) –  Any location1 March 2015
This is probably one of the worst companies to work for in Canada.
Not only do they schedule you from night shift to day shift inconsistently but they don't offer breaks and give you 30 mins to eat for a 9 hour shift. Also the pay is horrible and I had zero training. Like not even a handbook on what to say about Birks to the customers. Also I our store had no communication from the head office. It was like we where supposed to figure out our shifts, displays and training on our own.
If you want a job then Birks is fine but it is defiantly not a career.
Pros
.... Small discount on over priced jewelry
Cons
Bad communication from head office, general lack of communication overall from all parts of Birks.
