How We’re Keeping You Safe in These Uncertain Times

This can be a troubling time to work in a customer facing role. At Shane Co., we take the health of both our employees and customers very seriously. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve gone above and beyond to implement new health and safety measures in all of our stores and offices. This includes: requiring temperature checks for both employees and customers, providing branded masks to all of our employees, requiring all customers to wear masks while in-store, having disposable masks, hand sanitizer, and gloves available at all times, extra cleaning and sanitizing, including cleaning surfaces between each customer interaction and the Synexis® Biodefense System (which is the state-of-the-art microbial reduction system designed to clean air and surfaces by reducing the presence of microbes in indoor spaces).


Position Overview

As a leader in the jewelry industry for four generations and as the largest family-owned jeweler in the U.S., Shane Co. serves our customers with an unparalleled standard of excellence. Our people get to share in our customers’ milestone moments such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and everything in between. We are looking for passionate, fun, vibrant individuals who want to be a part of our dynamic company culture in a retail environment.

Responsibilities:

As a Customer Service Associate you are frequently the last impression each guest has in their interaction with us and can make the difference between an amazing experience and an ordinary one. There is truly nothing “ordinary” about Shane Co. so this role is a critical one! You will assist our customers in finding the right payment plan, ensuring their purchase is presented beautifully, suggest appropriate pieces that complement their selections, provide information about our famous warranty, conduct inventory, inspect merchandise for quality control, stock our beautiful merchandise, assist with greeting guests, be part of the team working on our current curbside services, assist with the flow of work into and out of the jewelry shop to assure that the work is ready for pick-up by the customers in a timely manner, and perform inspections and cleaning support to maintain the beauty of our guests’ merchandise.

As member of a high performing team, you will be providing exceptional service and helping team members do the same.

We will provide you with the training you need to be able to demonstrate an in-depth knowledge of our merchandise and systems, represent our brand, and create an exceptional store experience for each and every customer. Our goal for our customers is to ensure each one receives the highest level of service; the experience YOU create is the reason for their return. Our goal for you is to give you an employment experience like no other so you wake up and want to come to work every day! If you love being part of a team as well as providing personal attention to every customer, this is the place for you!


Why Work for Shane Co.?

Shane Co. is a family-owned business and everyone who works in our organization is part of the family. This family point of view is exactly why we want to take care of you AND your family. We hire just a fraction of the people who seek to join us because we are the best of the best and if you join us, you will be too.

  • We want friendly people who help us satisfy the customers’ needs. We offer a very competitive base rate and we bonus based on team performance because we genuinely care that the customer gets the perfect piece, no matter their budget. We also care about the environment our team works in…no one who feels “that’s not my job” need apply.
  • We invest in your growth and development. We have a top notch new hire training program and also offer ongoing learning and development opportunities, both for work-related topics AND for topics you’d like to study outside of work!
  • We focus on providing you a time off package that is very generous for retail! It is important for us to be available when our customers need us so we do work weekends, however our hours of operation are the best in the business (We close at 5pm on Saturday and Sunday). You accrue 3 weeks of vacation in your first year! In addition, you also earn sick days and we are closed on 7 major holidays (unlike most retailers), AND you get an additional floating holiday each year AND we pay you for one volunteer day per year (you can join us in volunteering for our company’s work with the Kids In Need Foundation or you can volunteer at an organization of your choice)! The longer you work with us the more vacation time you earn!
  • Unlike other companies who just offer low paying disability insurance to cover your major illness situations, we offer the ability to earn time off at FULL pay for the care of yourself or a family member! When your family needs you, we want you to be able to be there for them.
  • We offer very competitive medical, dental and vision plans, as well as a 401 (k) plan with a company match, company paid life insurance, and flexible spending accounts for medical, daycare or mass transit commuting expense. We also offer a number of discounted voluntary benefits including long-term disability, life insurance for your dependents, pet insurance and even things like discounted travel and movie tickets!
  • We have benefits focused on you AND any family member (partner, children and even your parents!) including counseling, legal advice, assistance in finding appropriate medical specialists and even help in understanding medical bills!
  • And, of course, we offer a generous discount in our stores or online for you AND your family members!

Qualifications:

  • A minimum of 1 year of experience providing a high level of customer service in a face to face environment. Prior experience with jewelry sales is not required… we will teach you!
  • You will interact with customers via the telephone, email and in person so great communication and interpersonal skills are a must.
  • Demonstrated attention to detail and accuracy.
  • Intermediate skills with Outlook, Excel, and Word.
  • Demonstrated ability with math: Adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing.
  • Genuine enjoyment in providing great service.
  • Energetic team player.
  • Must have weekend and evening availability.
