    I worked at Tiffany & Co.

    Pros

    The positive of working with Tiffany & Co, they are a prestigious and iconic company, so to have the privilege to be employed by such a company is exciting. Staff discount was good but only on silver jewellery. The staff on boarding/training days at the Shard are outstanding, the training is intense but invaluable knowledge and really sets you up for going into store. It is an easily recognisable company to have on your CV.

    Cons

    Where to begin.....many sadly. It is with regret, during my time here as a seasonal temp I did not have the most pleasant experience. I thought I would have the magical experience that was promised, but it is far from that. Staff and management are in such a clique, the other permanent staff took a real dislike to temps joining and made me feel so isolated. They are all there for a sale, and ruthless in how they get it, they will take sales from the temps as they know it all adds to their commission at the end of the month. I was undermined by one staff member in particular on numerous occasions and in front of my clients too, which is just unprofessional, especially when clients are spending a large sum of money. I was told to only spend my time on clients spending lots of money, not those just spending £100-£200 as they said they'll be one off clients. I treated every client the same and gave each one the same magical experience of being the store regardless of the amount they spent. No support from management when needed. I would often come to the shop floor to help out on my lunch break as the permanent staff refused to take time out of theirs. 2 months on and I am still yet to receive my wages!!! Stock of items is very, very low and a huge issue as so many sales were lost from this. No care of support given to lower level staff what so ever. I was praised on several occasions by clients who willingly asked for my manager or supervisor to praise me, none of this was ever acknowledged by the manager, and was quickly brushed over.

    I have been working at Tiffany & Co.

    Pros

    I love the busy holiday season - it's the perfect chance to learn about the company and get your hands in a lot of different areas.

    Cons

    Operations are the backbone of the store and sales floor so it can sometimes feel overwhelming.

    I worked at Tiffany & Co. for less than a year

    Pros

    Great discounts Great recruitment process by HR Work here if you enjoy a competitive, superficial relationship with your team mates. Also if you get a thrill from immature backstabbing and gossiping, PK47 is the perfect place for you.

    Cons

    Poor soft skills from management- no positive encouragement or motivation Poor training for new employees about products and procedures No quality one-on-one training for new employees Very competitive environment Hostile employee culture Cliques within teams - making new employees unwelcome Long-term staff very complacent New staff were excluded from Christmas party?! Tiffany's way of making new staff feel welcomed.

    I worked at Tiffany & Co. part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You will get some kind and amazing customers that come in. You will also get 1% commission on every item you sell. A great part-time opportunity during the holiday season to make extra cash.

    Cons

    Full-timers somehow believe that Seasonals are out to steal every sale. There was a blatant division the holiday season I worked there. Full-timers are under a lot of pressure to meet their Monthly Sales Goals, so each time a Seasonal takes a customer, a Full-Timer sees that as a threat. Everyone basically hates each other but gets along well when eating together in the kitchen...it's strange. There are peaks and valleys of productivity. There are times when business is really slow so you try to find anything to do to look occupied so management doesn't get upset that you're not wiping the counters or straightening things for the 3rd time in an hour (sorta sarcasm, mostly true). The days leading up to Christmas were the worst. You get fine customers before the rush, but during it, you get everyone and anyone. Most people will buy the Return to Tiffany bracelet or necklace, and you have to show them A LOT because customers think they're buying something truly unique when everyone and their mom has the same thing. My advice for anyone contemplating becoming a Seasonal is to go for it but to remember when a Full-Timer bullies you or talks trash behind your back, you will soon be out of there.

    I worked at Tiffany & Co.

    Pros

    The salary was decent for a seasonal position. I enjoyed the busy work environment because the day did flow by pretty quickly on most days. It was really nice dressing up every day and working in a luxury environment. Most employees were very helpful and sociable throughout my experience with Tiffany.

    Cons

    Not much time for appropriate and much-needed breaks. Training prior to being placed on the floor was under par. Lower management personnel displayed blatant favoritism, cattiness and very unprofessional behavior towards other Sales Associates during my experience. At times we were micro-managed on the sales floor, which was frustrating.
