The company I work for, Bernie Robbins Jewelers in Somer’s Point, NJ
is looking to hire a promising apprentice or person with solid skills
and a couple years under their belt.
They will or I’ll go berserk.
I’m the sole goldsmith in what should be a 2-3 man shop. We bill
ourselves as the area’s leading luxury jeweler and after watching the
place grow for the last 13 years, I think they’re quite right in the
claim. Somer’s Point is the flagship store of a family owned group of
6 stores in the Delaware Valley, carrying top name lines and going
(sheesh) way over the top in service and amenities.
The shop itself is pretty pleasant and well equipped. We handle
custom work, restoration, and repairs. The run of general repairs
tends to be quality stuff thank goodness, so we don’t tend to get the
headaches of fixing up wonked out promo merchandise. It’s a decent
company and a pleasant enviroment (or I wouldn’t be on the lifer
plan). We had a smith leave this past April to start a family and so
they took my assistant and set her up in the Bucks County store on
her own. She came to me as an apprentice a little more than a year
before and with my teaching, some off site training (and let’s be
real, a wicked talent!) she was ready to go it alone. We’ll be having
a laser welder delivered next wednesday, so any takers will be
trained in that as well.
What I’m hoping for is someone with pretty solid basics, good
imagination and an ability to think around the corners. It’s not for
me to put in anything about compensation here, but my own is good and
the benefits package is more than generous.
If anyone has an interest, please email me, we’ll talk. Meantime,
I’ll try to keep it going, it’s like christmas all summer long here.
