Anyone tried working at a jewelry store on commission? I want to try it but don't know if I'll make enough

Any commission based job is going to feel like a gamble before you start. It takes confidence to find success

Not jewelry specifically, but I've worked for commission before and you'd be surprised what you can achieve if you take on the salesperson mindset. I was worried too until one day my paycheck was for almost double what I need to cover my monthly expenses

Why are you worried though? You can make enough if you set your mind to it. The best salespeople don't worry about whether or not they're going to make sales, they just show up and make them.

There isn't a lot of money to be made in commission-based sales jobs, especially in retail. You may make more selling high-ticket items like jewelry, but you'll need to sell a lot of them to make a good living.

If you're looking to make some extra money, jewelry store commission work can be a great option. However, it's important to remember that you may not always make as much as you expect. Commission work can be unpredictable, so be prepared for the possibility of earning less than you hoped.

I've worked at a jewelry store on commission, and it was a great experience! I made a lot of money, and I really enjoyed helping customers find the perfect piece of jewelry. If you're comfortable with selling, I definitely recommend giving it a try!

My husband and I are considering relocating to the Carolinas and I was curious if anyone can give me information about how special education services are typically provided in your state.

For people that are on the fence about the industry, I tell them to try another district. You know what you did and didn't like about your school so you can go in armed to see what another school is like. Don't be afraid to see the school, ask for a tour, talk to the teachers. Sky's the limit!

Sales assistant at a drug/grocery store. The manager thinks my coworker does great work but I've seen her putting out new products without rotating stock (so the oldest food will be sold first) and we are always supposed to check the dates when shelving new things. The problem is, I don't really get along with this coworker and I think it's noticeable to management. If I bring this up with our supervisor, are people going to think that I'm just trying to sabotage my coworker so that I will look better than her?


I'm a retail employee, and I hate the other people on my team because they treat me like a robot. I've heard that other companies are much more family-oriented and that they have more opportunities for employees to grow. Should I find a new gig?

Hello all, my first post. Anyone else feel like their general manager won't promote them because they're afraid you'll make them look bad.
