Building a low-tech training solution

Week 3

g-Bling, Inc. is a struggling jewelry outlet that provides modestly priced gold, silver and gemstone jewelry via kiosks placed in large malls.

However, they have the on-going issue of training and retraining sales associates. BBI wants to beef-up their orientation program.

Explain your reasoning and support your opinions.

Bling-Bling, Inc Sales Associates Level 1 (kiosk-based):

  • Age: 18-30 (average age 19)
  • For 49% of sales associates this is their first job ever, while 39% indicate that they have held another full-time job, and another 9% indicate that this is their second job (i.e., they are already working 40+ hrs a week for another business), 3% did not respond.
  • Tend a mall kiosk during mall hours with 15 minute breaks every 2 hours.
  • Have a 40% turn-over in 90 days and a 75% annually
  • When surveyed about the work indicated that:
  • They are often bored by sitting in a kiosk with nothing to do
  • Do not have a phone (or at least not one provided by the company)
  • Their only computer is one provided by the company for posting sales and does not have internet or wireless access
  • When mall security were asked about Bling-Bling’s Sales Associates work practices, they indicated that:
  • “They’re just kids. Like all kids they spend more time on the phone or playing games on their iPods than working.”
  • “When a new one starts the first day, I show‘em how they will handle a money-changer con artist. None of them have ever heard of that. When I ask how they will handle someone ripping off some of the jewels, they don’t seem to know what your company wants them to do.”
