Do Not Recommend Working fro Signet Companies
Jewelry Consultant - Zale's (Current Employee) – Center Valley, PA – June 21, 2018
I have had the privilege of working management type roles for several Fortune 100 companies and wildly successful innovating companies over the past 22 years. I recognize what it takes to work toward a common goal while maintaining work-life balance, excellent pay, excellent benefits, and strong morale within the ranks. Signet simply does not have the skill sets necessary to pull this off. The pay is peanuts and the company is getting out of employees exactly what they are paying for. They are old school in every way and cannot think outside their own dogma and silos. To me, Signet is in a quick downward spiral.
They promote excellent retail sales people to managerial and directorial roles, but we all should know by now that excellent sales people are great at what they do and not necessarily at managing. This is a not-so-common-anymore misconception and it's causing issues for the company.
Signet is already behind the 8-ball in many ways. They are more of a nonbank lender than a jeweler, stressing their salesforce to push credit over product. Their promotional tactics are ancient, inefficient, and behind the times, and they have a horrible web-based infrastructure both internally and externally.
I would not recommend working for this company except to the most desperate and unskilled of job seekers.
