Our Corporate Bench Jewelers perform their craft and artisanship in our corporate offices in North Kansas City, MO and work consistent Monday to Friday business hours. No regular evening or weekend shifts in our corporate headquarters. Our Jewelers perform all the same sort of high quality services such as repairs, settings, sizing, cleaning, and refurbishing that are done in the jewelry stores, but our Jewelers don’t work out of a building that was designed more for selling jewelry than repairing it.
Our jewelry repair area was constructed and designed specifically with the Jeweler in mind, and it allows our Jewelers the opportunity to operate in an environment conducive for concentrating on their craft. No sales questions or customer interruptions here.
If you are a Bench Jeweler with experience and take pride in your jewelry craftsmanship then we encourage you to get out of the store, and come to our shop. Apply for this position through our career site, or for quicker consideration send your resume directly to our Corporate Recruiter; DDThomas@helzberg.com.
