Do Your Worst

Published

on

We know that most of your employees are great. But there’s always that one, isn’t there, who just doesn’t measure up? Here are some, uh, real things jewelry store owners might say about their worst employees in excerpts from performance reviews. Think of them as your sweet revenge for all those ?stupid boss? jokes.  

? ?Lacks luster. Needs polish. Not carrying his own weight. Must be cut …? 

? ?Every time I ask this employee for a lab report, he answers, ?Why? Do I look sick? …? 

? ?Perfect for a store that triple-keystones since he works only one hour out of every three …?  

? ?Unable to sell without offering massive discounts. Only mark-up she gets is her thumbprints on the merchandise …?  

? ?Works well when under constant supervision and cornered like a rat in a trap …?

? ?If you see two people talking and one is bored, he’s the other one …? 

? ?When asked what the four C’s were, the employee replied that they were his best-ever report card in high school …? 

? ?Overzealous. Persuaded customer to bite baroque pearls to prove their authenticity. We’re still paying the hospital bills …? 

? ?This employee should go far and the sooner he starts, the better …? 

? ?This employee is depriving a village somewhere of an idiot …? 

? ?Calls himself a gemologist, but couldn’t find the crack in his butt with a Raman spectroscope …?

? ?Tired of her excessive incentive demands. No longer willing to play carat-and-stick game …? 

? ?Operating with a full six-pack, but lacks the plastic thingy to hold it together …?

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
