Diamonds Direct is a good company.
Coordinator, Executive Assistant & Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – February 7, 2017
Each day is never the same. I wear a lot of hats at that job, so I am constantly doing new things. I sell everyday, I help with customers every day, sometimes i will plan trips for managers, fix consultations with customers, run errands every day for managers/executives.
I have learned more and more about sales, new techniques, presentation, communications, multi-tasking, etc.
Work place culture, is decent. It has its moments when its a happy place to be.
Hardest part of the job is the hours. Giving up practically every Saturday of the year is very hard. Also the pressure, sometimes the managers are so pressuring rather than being uplifting.
Most enjoyable part of the job is getting to interact with new customers everyday. There are always new people coming to the store. A great feeling though is when you have a returning customer that wants to see you, and you only.
Free lunches on saturdays only, because we are not given breaks on saturdays.
Working every saturday each year except 4 (You get 4 saturdays off)
