Decent job. Good pay

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The job was okay. Not horrible but not amazing. The staff discount is great though. Good experience but I wouldn’t go back and work there again. Good if you really enjoy selling and pressure

Pleasant daily routine

I learned a lot at the company. I know if you follow the outline. for selling it works.They have a good training program the best I have seen so far in retail.

Pros

Fair work schedule

Cons

Double the sales expectation weekly which can get discouraging after a while.

Stressful

Coworkers made this job better. Management always looking at the numbers which cannot always be done. Stressful if your not a naturally "sales" person.

Great coworkers

The people I worked with were amazing during my last 8ish months there. The direct management wasn’t bad however the overall company and head ups weren’t the best. The work environment was stressful which I get sales is competitive but I still think it could’ve been less toxic and stressful

Pros

Coworkers were pretty amazing for the most part

Cons

One tends to feel like just a number in the eyes of some of the head ups

Good pay and benefits at the right location

Try applying for the larger stores to make the most of the commission structure. Be prepared to work 6 days at times and poor scheduling. Is a good company to work for as they take feedback from store level well

Productive and fun place to work.

I feel at home when I come to work , the workers are amazing! Brand new team, they are very welcoming and they treat their team right. I couldn’t be happier.

Manager created a huge turn over and upper management knew it and did not solve the problem.

Stressful place to work. Goals were easy to meet with the right motivation. Hard to do a good job there.Sometimes, we waited until after store hour start time for the manager to show up to open the store. The only time the store reached it's goals while I worked there was when the Manager was away for three weeks and another Manager came in and taught us good selling skills.

Pros

discount on jewelry

Cons

Terrible leadership

Not a great workplace

Not a good company to work for! Very stressful work environment. Lack of support from management. Employees would steal sales. High-school like drama that even management would participate in. Manager had clear favourites, and would often help them reach their target goals. Often made to feel small. Horrible training structure. Manager would gossip about other employees. High turnover.

Pros

Discount, the pay wasn’t to bad

Cons

Stressful, toxic work culture, favouritism

All the members are like a family. The working culture is great since everyone is caring for each other. A lot of good and informative training sessions. You can get good bonus based off your sales

Pros

Good salary, culture, work life balance

Stressful

Our manager was a sweet lady. Unfortunately I almost didn’t see her. I had very poor training on the floor almost nothing. Some coworkers were nice some snaky. I was happy to quit.

Pros

Good discount for employees

Cons

Lack of training

Great people / Terrible company

There's amazing people at the store level but upper management will do everything they can to save money. Including working their sales force to exhaustion and then cutting their bonuses

Pros

Travel once a year

Cons

Zero work life balance

Stressful, and petty

Toxic work environment, they preach to be positive and inclusive but aren’t, they act like they’re going to be there for you and train you well, but they don’t train you at all. Co workers steal your sales, etc. would not recommend to my worst enemy

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Company value we care is a joke they only care about how much money customer is spending

This is the worst job I have ever had. The work environment is toxic because all the coworkers argue. The management is useless, and does very little work. Don’t go to the management for help, because they wont help.

Pros

Good discount

Cons

Long hours No support Constant arguments

Not a staff friendly - it’s only about targets and making the sale for week / month.

Pay is very low compared to the amount of work pressure you are put through - the whole atmosphere becomes taxic with those targets - getting commissions. (Bonus) is made so difficult that by the time you make any money with the high tax deduction it’s just peanuts in your pocket. And the upper management don’t allow the regular staff move up - they want new faces and young people. Sad when they don’t value their good staff!
