Pros: discounts on jewelry
Cons: non relistic sales goals, terrible managment, dirty politics
I worked for this company twice in my life. I will never go back! I am very disappointed with Sterling's. For a multi million dollar company, they sure manage poorly.
I first started working at Kay, in 2010 I quit my job previous for three years, to come work for Kay's full time. I was super excited, and thrilled. I love jewelry and possess so much – more... knowledge about diamonds and such. I was let go for no reason. I knew the real reason as to why. The branch manager wanted her niece to work there in place of me. I had gotten the last full time position, and to make room for her, they gave me the boot. My sales were fine, and I enjoyed working there but was let go before my ninety days so I could not stay on full time or get my benefits.
In 2013, I decided to try again and apply at Jared's. I was recruited. Well, I thought this time around it will work out great.
I was wrong. The manager there, was a total piece of work!
She disliked me from day one, and I let it go thinking things would get better, but I was just fooling myself. I was wrong. She was a big bully, always picking on me for no reason and then discriminating me. She got mad at me, because I went to the hire up to complain about her for discrimination. Bad move on their part, I can sue the company if I wanted too and they would not know what hit them! She was buddy, buddy with the branch manager, so he would protect her!
My manager would tell me where I can go and what I can do, while others had freedom to do as they please and happily continue their job duties. I hate bullies and the manager and assistant manager were total bullies.
I was let go in May of 2013, and was told I was hired on seasonal basis and I was no longer required to work there.
I called back around Christmas time, and stated that I would like to work seasonal and I was told to go to HR. Terrible company to work for. They screw you over, to make them look good. You could be the top seller, and the Manager of the store would get the credit for it! Sure you get some incentives, but in peanuts!!! Please avoid this company! You are not missing anything, it is not the best opportunity out there. There are so many other jewelry companies out there, that will treat you better! On a good note, the manager is no longer there, but the company is terrible as a whole. – less
