Hello everyone, I need some advise.
Currently I work at an independent jewelry store. I am the manager
of the shop and have one young man working with me. My duties are
changing as well as my assistant. My assistant is doing more and
more of the shop work while mine are developing into more
Gemological duties as well as sales support and administrative. My
problem is that I am only making $11.50 an hour with one percent of
what ever goes out of the shop. We do not do all of our shop work
because there is to much of it. I have looked on the Internet to
see what the current hourly wage or salary might be for someone in
my position but do not find much.
Could someone give me an idea as to what someone in my position would
make. I am also training my assistant how to set stones so he can
take over more of my duties in the shop at some point. Any input
would be greatly appreciated.
