Does Birks offer employee discounts?

Pros

Fairly easy going environment Great conworkers Company is making many good business decisions Beautiful and well made product Comparatively good discount Lots of training material- you don’t need to know Jewelry to work there Very Supportive Great incentives every now and then

Cons

At the location I work at, the managers take too many of the sales, and not at the management tasks are preformed well so the associates end up taking charge. I also think that the commission structure isn’t the greatest, despite some of the incentives Product lanunches aren’t always done effectively and efficiently- i.e, associated find literally right before the launch and they don’t receive the product on time

Advice to Management

Stop taking sales away from associates, yes you should be selling, however it’s not your main job. You already get a higher wage, commission and bonuses we aren’t entitled to so it not fair to take sales away from associates, or split any time you support. Additionally you’re sales targets are much lower. You should focus and supporting us and making sure the store has everything it needs before selling, unless the Salesfloor needs support
