Jewelers are a hard-working group.

Running a business is hard work — but is your workload any heavier or lighter than that of other jewelers?

As we collect responses for this year’s Big Survey, we’re bringing you a few highlights from years past. We call them Big Survey Flashbacks.

Today we bring you a question from our 2012 survey: “How many hours do you work a week?”

The most popular answer, making up 45 percent of responses, was 50 hours. In second place, representing 28 percent of respondents, was 60 hours.

Twenty-two percent of respondents said they worked 40 hours a week, while 5 percent said they worked 30 hours and 1 percent said they worked 20 hours.

Here are some related questions that we asked:

Describe your workload.

Overworked — 46 percent.

Underworked — 6 percent.

Just right — 48 percent.

Do you feel fairly paid for your work?

Yes — 50 percent.

No — 28 percent.

No, but I don’t care — 22 percent.

If you’re away from the store, how long can you comfortably go without checking in?

Four hours — 11 percent.

1 day — 24 percent.

2-3 days — 32 percent.

1 week — 20 percent.

2 weeks — 8 percent.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
