Typical day at work: Be a pushy sales person.
Jewelry Consultant/Sales (Former Employee) – Garland, TX – May 27, 2018
All about CREDIT:
They train you to ask for people to sign up for credit card cards, and you must ask 3 times! Personally, I hate that policy because I hate pushy sales people & hate debt!
People on the sales floor are always listening making sure you do ask 3 times & if they hear you're losing the customer, they may try to steal your sale & "help" you with the customer. Then you split commission if you sell something, or if the 2 sales people helped the customer sign up for a credit card, both of you take credit but no reward, more like an unofficial recognition. They kept a list of which sales people had gotten customers to sign up for credit each month. Sick!
When it's slow, you must appear busy by cleaning glass display cases, clean the entire building.
Both mornings & evenings, you must count EVERY piece of jewelry in EACH display case & then match it with the inventory list, make sure no one has stolen anything or if there's extra verify if it's a returned item, etc
Two employees are required to be in the building at ALL times, to avoid temptation, sadly this sucks when you're understaffed and makes taking lunch difficult.
A lot of the time you're going to clean jewelry for incoming "customers", some haven't actually purchased their jewelry there but know from word of mouth that they can get a free jewelry cleaning session. The manager & other sales people will push to try to sign them up for credit and buy anything from the store.
Discount on some products.
Sometimes required to take a short lunch break. They want you to be a pushy annoying sales person.
