Do you enjoy the challenge of working and repairing jewelry items that come into store each day, but hate the hassle of working ever changing evening and weekend retail store hours?
Well Helzberg has the best of both worlds for you. Our Bench Jewelers perform their craft and artisanship from right here in our corporate offices in North Kansas City, MO, and they have consistent Monday to Friday business hours. No evening or weekend shifts here at our corporate offices!
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 recently constructed jewelry repair area was designed specifically with the Bench Jeweler in mind, and it provides our Jewelers the opportunity to operate in an environment conducive for concentrating on their art. 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 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 at; DDThomas@helzberg.com.
