If you want a building to stay erect, there must be a solid structure.
Unknown (Former Employee), UnknownJanuary 31, 2014
Pros: free range to make your store your own
Cons: terrible management of the company
This company has a heart unlike larger companies, but it is ran by people who are uneducated and inexperienced. They lack the structure that companies need to survive. Each individual location has to implement their own protocols and structure. The problem is that they do not hire in the right people, and if they do hire the right people they do not – more... train them appropriately. As an employee you are not given the tools to survive, you must create your own tools. If you are not highly intelligent and highly motivated you will not do well as a manager here. – less

horrible
Store Manager (Former Employee), Toms River, NJJuly 11, 2013
Pros: high volume
Cons: everything
A typical day was never going home.
i Learned how to not have a social life
My District manager was horrible never willing to lend a hand after over two weeks of doubles
The Hardest thing was to recruit and hire managers without having a d.m support.
The most enjoyable thing was the volume it was always very busy.

Cons: no to short break even on long shift
Constant goals that are needed to be met in a failing economy that doesn't work. Promotion from within are only for those that have in friendship prior connections and in a dog eat dog world job security is not there put in 82 hrs reg time and 42 hrs overtime in two weeks missed one watch count and threatened to be fired. Had the common Curtisy to give – more... general manager a two week notice and was removed off the schedule for the following two weeks even though the manager and dm was well aware of the two week needed pay due to job transfer and supporting child – less

I worked at Precision Time for 7 1/2 years. In that time I saw 8 managers come & go, the end of any raises, store managers taken from salaried to hourly + commission--putting them in direct competition with their employees for sales goals, and the certification program become pretty meaningless. The good store managers quickly found other more lucrative opportunities, the others either got sick of the constant verbal beatings over not meeting goals and left, or got fired. There's no insurance for those of us in Washington but corporate will still send insurance packets and not tell you their insurance is not valid, and they don't even offer direct deposit. They pay minimum wage and give the sales staff no power to make the customer happy without first getting upper management approval. They tell you they are "family first" until you test that philosophy. If that is the environment you enjoy then go for it. I'm done!

A company based on exceptional values from the top down
Team Member to District Manager, I've done it all. (Current Employee), NationwideMarch 4, 2013
Pros: innovative, takes car of employees, opportunities for advancement are very real.
Cons: retail is a demanding career and not for everyone, but i like it, otherwise i would look for a career change.
Precision Time is a great company to work for. It really has a "family" feel to it yet remains a professional work place. It is the American dream made real and blesses the lives of all of its employees every day. They understand the value of hard work and are willing to reward those who also understand this value.

Fun, rewarding ... be ready to work hard!
General Manager (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOMarch 1, 2013
Pros: great management team
Cons: team-building doesn't come easy
I had a blast. The best part was that I learned more about how to build a team, and drive sales and profit, than in any prior job. I really am sad that I had a better opportunity outside of the company. When I took the job, as a promotion from team member, it was the dream situation.

Compensation is strong for managers. Compensation for team members – more... is performance-driven, and of course, there aren't a ton of great salespeople out there just waiting for jobs ... so ultimately, you have to work very hard to build a good team.

The company does is very good at teaching every part of the job. I'm a watch expert now, where I started with very little knowledge.

Be ready to work hard. If you don't know how to sell, you won't succeed on good looks, and the management team will hold you accountable to performance. If you don't know how to build a team, you'll find yourself working a lot of extra hours to make sure you beat plan. – less

Fun and enjoyable employer with long hours.
General Manager (Former Employee), San Jose, CAAugust 11, 2012
Being a General Manager for Precision Time was a positive experience. The workload was often intense, as I was asked to undertake the task of hiring and training team members for multiple locations. My other duties involved product inventory, employee scheduling, training in repairs, and handling of special orders for products from various vendors.

Fun and learning work environment
General Manager (Current Employee), Brea, CaliforniaApril 18, 2012
Over the past 7 years working for Precision Time I have learned a lot about managing a store and employees as well as a lot about myself. A typical day at work for myself would be helping customers in any way I can, conduct inventory, take care of day to day paperwork and employee progress, train staff, and meet specific goals given by the company. – more... I have learned that being a manager takes heart, dedication, and loyalty. My District Manager and I have a good working and respectful working relationship. My employees and I also have a respectful working relationship. They know I am here for them to come to for concerns or any type of help. The most challenging aspect of the job would be hitting our sales goal each and every day. We have some tough days, but I still put on a smile and do the best to my ability to have a postitive outlook for myself, my employees, and management. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning all that I have to be a competent and effective manager and also the camarderie and sense of family the company gives off to all their employees. – less
