Sales Professional (Former Employee) – Chevy Chase, MD – February 8, 2018
My career with Tiffany began in NYC in management. I loved my senior management as well as my direct reports. After 6 years in NYC and the downturn in the economy in 08, Tiffany hired new upper management and took a new direction. I left the company for a few years. When I rejoined the company as a Sales Professional my excitement for the company dwindled quickly. The expectations as well as the need to remove the exclusivity and special-ness from the brand was a poor idea.
dirty working environment, very unprofessional, low tips.
Waitress (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 21, 2018
when i originally applied i was told that it gets very busy and tips are good. well to say the least i was lied to, on a late friday and saturday night the most people that would be there is abou 20 through the whole night and the tips were NOT good. also the locker room was a mess, there was hairballs in the corners and used tampons on the floor. very dirty and horrible work place!

Tiffany is a good place to work. My responsibilities were to clean castings of platium jewelry, gold and silver. Each piece is precisely cleaned to perfection. To first remove tabs from wax molding castings. And then to removing all flaws from surface. Some pieces were a little complicated they were assembled and soldered then removed excess metal from rings. All processing is done with electric fortem with different pieces to be used accordingly. When cleaned then sent to wash and then polish for the beautiful flawless finish.
Store Manager (Current Employee) – San Francisco Bay Area, CA – August 13, 2018
The best parts of working for Tiffany are the benefits. Otherwise, it depends on the person you report to how much you enjoy the job. If you are okay with complacency, you'll be fine. There are a lot of terrible leaders who aren't held accountable for anything but sales. Senior leadership marches around stores from time to time but don't scratch the surface. Career advancement is seriously contingent on if your leader likes you, not much is based on merit. Education won't help you here, neither will innovation. Training is at best mediocre and completely theoretical. It's a good starting off point, you'll learn a lot primarily from the experiences you'll have and out of necessity.
They're constantly trying to figure things out, you'll be tortured in the process
CFC Distribution Operations Associate (Temporary) (Former Employee) – Whippany, NJ – July 24, 2018
Joined Tiff's for a temporary holiday position which was initially to last a few weeks. While a temp the training was good but there is no way one can learn everything there is to know in a 2 week period. Most co-workers were very nice, friendly and helpful. ..upper mgmt encourages this. There is a group on every shift that is favored and are very competitive. The temp employees are held to the same standards as permanent hires but you get to feel used. The carrot is constantly dangled if you are interested in staying onboard. There is no way a temp hire can be held to the same standards of someone who has been working there for at least 10 yrs. Which most employees have been. Often Supervisors dont know what is really going on in the DC and one gets the feeling they may not care as long as productivity goals are met. As previously stated, good for a temporary job, you will get 40 hrs a week, there will be OT if interested and the discount is great. If interested in being hired work your butt off, get fast at what you do, and be willing to wait as long as 5 yrs before being offered a job.
Lots of motivation during holiday season, 15 min of lunch is paid for, 15 min unpaid break, discount, overtime if desired
No sitting or resting even if slow, no motivation IN the DC especially after Christmas, one hand never knows what the other is doing
Diamond Setter (Former Employee) – Cumberland, RI – July 9, 2018
There were cameras everywhere, metal detectors outside and a clear culture divide from the people working in the office versus the factory workers. While it felt like I wasn't trusted the entire time I worked there, I gained valuable skills and knowledge of the field. I left when they forced the factory to work overtime for three months straight.
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Northbrook, IL – July 2, 2018
Not the place for a Security Professional. Other job assignments takes you away from the job you were hired to do. Management at the regional level is lax at best. Senior Branch Security Officers as promoted due to affability with management rather than experience.
