Sales Consultant Reviews

What is it like working as a Sales Consultant?
Sales Consultant in Charleston:
"Sharing Life's Moments."
Pros: Helping customers pick the right engagement ring, anniversary present or something for themselves. I enjoy getting to know new people everyday. The relationships we build in the jewelry industry last a lifetime. Purchasing jewelry for someone special is very emotional for customers. We are there to help in their decision of what to get their loved ones and to make it less stressful.
Cons: We have to hit 6 standards everyday. I feel that these 6 standards are sometimes more important than customers wants and needs. I understand we need SALES, CREDIT AND REPAIRS. I just don't love pushing so much for all 6. I feel that the customer should come before our 6 for 6 quota.
