WALDORF MD -- JB Robinson St. Charles Towne Center Mall Waldorf Maryland; I was scammed by the Sale Pregnant Sale Lady on June 15, 2010 this sale pregnant sale lady approach me and said she is in a store contest and needed a store credit application so she can Win a trip. I ask her please do not use it for store credit as I already have a Discover Card and I do not want to add one. This sale pregnant sale lady assure me that she would not use so I end up helping her. After a month I received a JBR store credit card. I am very disappointed as I did not apply. Then I have purchase a necklace also did not ask for payment protection plan. I was scammed by this sale pregnant lady. An eye opener; do not sign anything and make sure before leaving the store read your receipts first and make sure; you do your homework. JBR sold me a ring that cost $3500.00 while in Littman cost $899.00 shop around first before buying. Also be very careful in JB Robinson St. Charles Mall Waldorf Maryland they are slick and scammer. I went back to the JBR St. Charles Mall Waldorf, Maryland to return my ring they denied it as it is over 45 days. This sale pregnant sale lady is nasty, rude and very argumentative and do not respect her JBR store manager as she argue in front of me.
Thanks goodness for the JBR store manager she ended up refunding me. Customer service; of this sale pregnant sale lady is very poor and nasty.
I am not complaining just sharing my experience as a consumer that is why; I called it an "eye Opener" to educate shoppers and buyers like me whose naive and have a huge heart for others.
I have a huge heart; so I tried to help the sale pregnant sale lady to win her trip since she beg and pleaded for me to help her to win the store contest and I trusted her that indeed she will use the store credit application just to win the store contest not to apply a store credit card.
I just want to educate buyers and shoppers so that they wont be victimized like me. You see; they work in team work to get you.
This is how they operate; they practice this kind of behavior day in and day out. The District Manager says; your stupid why; did you sign it. I can't believed this is coming from the mouth of the Sterling District Managers. Then The District manager added most black people are from the ghetto; not knowing I do not even live in the ghetto.
Just because I am black it doesnt mean I am from the ghetto. No wonder why all her employees are rude as she herself is the rudest and nasty person ever existed. I thought we pass racismm already have no idea this kind of people still exist and around.
I see now; why JB Robinson have so many reviews and complaint. Read other JBR complaints all over 50 states. You will understand I am not the only victim here. This site is really helpful and an eye opener.
I did not go back to the pregnant sale lady; all of this happen in one day. I was scammed and de-frauded and taking my kindness to weakness as an stupid shoppers. I have no axe to grind this sale pregnant sale lady just simply victimized of her sad story that she needed to win a trip for the store contest.
Anyone; who talk to this sale pregnant lady would believed her as that is scammer do; make a good story about themselves and make their self look good. Scammer often sound good and pleasant. If you were like me; who is a christian and wanted to help you would do the same thing as this pregnant sale lady is a professional scammer; she even sounds like an angel. This sale pregnant sale lady wanted to be a number one in there JBR store so she does what she does to make herself look great. The JBR store manager even said; there so many customer complaints about this particular sale pregnant lady but the HR of sterling company would not do anything because she is the top sale person in the JBR store.
I just want to educate the buyer or shoppers to watch out and do not be fooled by sweet talker like this sale pregnant sale lady who conned me good. This is an eye opener so that no one get victimized.
If I do not write this reviews then people like me will be a victim.
This is a very sweet talker pleasant sale pregnant lady; who depends on sale commission if she do not scammed you or future customer she would not sell at all.
Her store manager agree with that; that is why; she refunded me with my money as indeed this pregnant sale lady conned me! The JBR store manager was awesome; she made sure my money is refund not only that she made sure to remove the store credit card in 3 major credit agency
as I did not apply for this JB Robinson store credit card.
I just want consumer to be aware and be educated!!!!! Thank you. Found out there's many more people are complaining not only me; Sterling Jewelers Inc., the largest U.S. specialty retail jeweler, has been sued by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for allegedly “discriminating against a large class of female employees at stores nationwide.” It contends “thousands of women nationwide” are affected. The EEOC enforces federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination.
Sterling, in a statement to JCK, said it had investigated the allegations when they first arose, but couldn’t substantiate them, and “we do not believe these charges are valid.” It noted the majority of its store managers and employees are women.
"We take the allegations raised in this lawsuit very seriously,” said David A. Bouffard, Sterling Jewelers vice president, media relations. “We are confident these charges don’t reflect the culture of this company. Fairness, opportunity, integrity and respect are core values at Sterling.” He said the company will “defend ourselves vigorously against whatever legal action arises.”
The civil action was filed Sept. 24 in U.S. District Court in Buffalo, N.Y.
In it, the EEOC alleges Sterling “pays its female retail sales employees less than male employees performing equal work, and denies female employees promotional opportunities for which they are qualified.” It does this, the suit claims, “by maintaining a system for making promotion and compensation decisions that is excessively subjective, and through which Sterling Jewelers has permitted or encouraged managers to deny female employees” equal pay and promotion opportunities.
The EEOC said it filed its lawsuit after allegedly failing to reach a voluntary settlement with Sterling. It is seeking “monetary relief, an order requiring the company to implement new policies and practices to prevent discrimination, training about anti-discrimination laws, posting of notices at the worksite, and other injunctive relief.”
Sterling, headquartered in Akron, Ohio, (pictured) operates 1,414 stores in the U.S., trading as “Kay Jewelers,” “Jared the Galleria of Jewelry,” and several regional names. It has more than 19,000 employees. Sterling is the U.S. division of Signet Jewelers Ltd., the world’s largest specialty retail jeweler in the world, which is moving its headquarters from London to Bermuda, and its stock listing from London to the New York Stock Exchange.Sterling JB Robinson Waldorf, Maryland.Sterling Jewelers faces EEOC class-action discrimination suit

Eight women from the Tampa Bay area have joined an EEOC class-action lawsuit against Sterling Jewelers, owner of Jared, Kay Jewelers and Marks & Morgan stores.
The lawsuit alleges that Sterling, based in Fairlawn, Ohio, pays women in retail sales positions less than men and denies them promotions “with malice or reckless indifference.”
Plaintiff Dawn Soot-Coons was serving as a temporary store manager at the Jared Galleria of Jewelry store in Brandon near Tampa when she found a payroll report left on a desk. It showed that “every male except one earned more—$2, $3 and up to $4 an hour more—than any of the females,” she told the St. Petersburg Times.
“Even the top female sales associate, who sold more than $1 million of jewelry a year, got $2.50 less an hour than a guy just hired with no jewelry experience,” Soot-Coons said.
An EEOC attorney said discrimination complaints at Tampa-area Sterling stores “verified systemic pay and promotion discrimination across the entire company.” Sterling gives local managers broad discretion, resulting in “excessively subjective” pay, the EEOC said.
David Bouffard, vice president of media relations for Sterling, told the National Jeweler trade magazine, “We take the allegations raised in this lawsuit very seriously. We are confident that these charges do not reflect the culture of this company.” He pointed out that most of Sterling’s store managers and employees are female.
