Data Entry Clerk (Current Employee) – Irving, TX – June 1, 2017
Receiving the jeweler in the morning we would count and make sure it was the correct pieces we ordered and make sure the jeweler was damaged. then me the keyer would enter the information in the jeweler in the the data base to make labels so the jeweler would have a location. this was a easy job really no hard labor...
store manager (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – January 1, 2016
I loved worked for piercing pagoda. When you have the right people in the right places this is a great place to work.I had a great life /work balance and it fun place to work .Then management changed and the fun and positive work environment changed into a toxic one. Many managers with many years experience left on account of the district manager and her inability to effectively communicate with employees. I have never worked for a company that didn't look into turnovers and why employees are leaving. Unless you want to be texted to the point of almost harassment on a daily basis don't work in this area. If the company would open it's eyes and remove the wrong people I would love to work for the company again..
Zale corporation and affiliate stores ARE HORRIBLE TO EMPLOYEES
jewelry consultant (Former Employee) – South Texas – November 5, 2015
I worked here for a good while , It is a horrible ! Extremely NEGATIVE environment ! Since they were bought out by signet jewlers a lot of things changed and for the worst. I was very successful at what I did and was rarely given a pat on the back, And when they wanted to give us an incentive they were told by the higher ups not to.... Expectations are crazy to achieve and if you don't hit your 5 metrics you'll be out quick. All of my coworkers were unhappy and wanted to quit also . They hire constantly because people have been quiting so much in the last year and for good reasons. At first they will paint a pretty picture! That's not the case dont be fooled . Its very few hours and they will keep hiring .. Commission is the worst started at 1% you're lucky if you hit 3% which is very difficult . . Management is not professional at all there was alot of favortism where i worked, i was missrable going to work everday.... CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED!!
commission structure, work environment, moral, coworkers, management, favoritism, no schedule flexibility, work not worth the money, filthy work conditions, No incentives
key holder (Former Employee) – New Hampshire – November 2, 2015
Everyday was something new. I worked with a great group of people. There was alot to learn but the manager walked me thru it. It's not a job for a lazy person. You have to make sales goals that are easily attainable if you do your job right. Awesome bonus program for part timers, when i figured out my pay i was almost getting $2.00 extra per hr. I would still work there today, but i moved away.
jewelry sales (Former Employee) – Dalton, GA – October 29, 2015
Rude and lazy management, terrible benefits, no training. If you want to get thrown into a job and left there not knowing what to do while the manager leaves, then apply. But you only get 1 percent commission and your job is threatened if you don't make your highly unrealistic sales goal.
Secretary/New Store Coordinator (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – October 24, 2015
Had a lot of support and learned a lot. It was exciting going up the ladder from, Secretary to New Store Coordinator. There was great opportunity for advancement if, you put your mind to it. I learned a lot that I could take to the classroom.
Visiting the different stores without a time limit and going to jewelry shows.
