Values at the core
beeline’s corporate values don’t just exist on paper. They define our daily interactions with each other, our suppliers, partners and customers. Our key values are passion, quality, responsibility, team spirit and transparency.
Room for individuals
It is important to us that our employees take pleasure in their work. This has been one of our principles since the company was founded. beeliners remain true to themselves and show mutual respect.
Growing strong -- together
At beeline, we’re always looking for new paths to travel. We enter new markets or offer our partners new sales solutions adapted to their requirements. This is how we continue to develop not only itself but our employees, too. There’s one thing you’ll need to keep in mind, though: we do not support success at the expense of others. beeline does not reward lone wolves.
Our corporate responsibility doesn’t stop at national borders. As one of the leading suppliers of fashion jewelry, we have an opportunity and, in our view, the obligation, to promote fair labor conditions, practice environmental responsibility, maintain high levels of health-friendly quality in our products and give back to the communities in which we work.
People are our top priority. We can only be successful if we work closely together as a team, so we treat each other with respect, trust and fairness. We focus more on results than on hierarchy -- it’s not unusual for employees at every level to interact with senior executives. These are just some of the reasons there is a high number of employees who have been with us since we entered the US six years ago.
In addition to a competitive salary and performance-based bonus potential, we offer comprehensive benefits, including medical, dental and vision insurance; a 401(k) plan with discretionary company match; generous paid time off; and more.
