This is a sales-oriented and driven environment; if you have many years of working with customers and knowing about their needs (as I do) then you would be up to the task.
Competition is not always referenced, but it is a factor in getting a sale, since Zales works with a commission rate. If it is a big ticket item and you get the sale, that is more money for you. If you sell it with another associate, you 'split' the sale instead.
The hardest part is getting the customers to sign up for the Zales credit card, which is nearly mandatory with every sale. With all of the credit cards that are available, its more of a hindrance than a help.
The easier part is interacting with the customers - getting to know them, their interests and their spending budget.
