Really liked working for this company
Manager and Sales Associate (Former Employee), Savannah, GAOctober 25, 2014
There was plenty of room for advancement because I worked my way up from a night part-time position when I first started up to manager of the counter when the company closed. My coworkers were always pleasant and fun to work with. The hardest part of this job was the brutal hours that I had to work during the holiday season but it was also one of the best times to work. Being able to meet customer satisfaction was the best part of the day.

An experience.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Flushing, NYJune 29, 2014
Dealing with the customers at times, I would have to say was not easy. Some were a pleasure to help but others just was not patienced enough.
How to close a sale with a customer.
Management was a good and fun to work with.
My co-workers were great and I had a good time working with them.
I would have to say the hardest part would have to be, when I had to close my dept. by myself especially when the store closed at 11 pm.
The most enjoyable part would have been, the perks of getting a good discount on buying for ourselves.

Store Manager (Former Employee), Wausau, WIDecember 22, 2013
Pros: what i learned
Cons: no advancement, no room for growth
I enjoyed everything I learned, the TTY, all about watches, gold, precious gems, stones and how to size. The only thing was you had to stand long period of time in a very small area. Most enjoyable was all I learned.

Branch Manager (Former Employee), Hanford, CAAugust 21, 2013
Pros: employee discounts
Cons: health care
Interacting with customer. Leasing out of Gottschalks, we had Gottschalks impeccable reputation. My co- workers were dependable and hard working. Loyal and top performers which earned us extra commission. We were in control of how much we wanted to make. The hardest part of the job while helping customers, it is hard to get a break or lunch on time when under staff. The most enjoyable part of the job is setting the department to protocol and being recognized for being the top 10 department in the region.
