WHEN WE LAST met Gene the Jeweler, we learned that he doesn’t really train his staff.

We now bring you the next installment of the Gene series, which was created by industry consultant Jimmy DeGroot. (The series is kind of like a jewelry version of The Office.)

In the video below, the consequences of Gene’s non-existent training policy start to become clear. He explains that his people don’t get along very well — in fact, they fight.

One staff member in particular — Margie — is problematic. She’s great with customers and makes lots of sales, but when it comes to the rest of Gene’s employees, Margie is a no-go.

To Generate Funds for a Jeweler’s Move and Remodel, Wilkerson More Than Delivered

Even successful jewelers need a little extra cash to fund expansion plans—especially when there’s inventory on hand that’s ripe for liquidation. For Beaumont, Texas-based jeweler Michael Price, co-owner of Mathews Jewelers, it was the perfect time to call Wilkerson. Price talked to other jewelers as well as vendors for advice during the selection process and decided to go with Wilkerson. And he wasn’t disappointed. When it comes to paying for the move and expansion, Price says the road ahead is clear. “When we close on the next two stores, there’s no worries about finances.”
