Former Employee - Customer Care in San Bruno, CA
Former Employee - Customer Care in San Bruno, CA

I worked at Stella & Dot as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

-If you like living in a real life drama, come work here.
-Sometimes free jewelry
-FEW people are genuine.

Cons

- Management discourages asking questions, and general interaction with coworkers. The culture of the headquarters is eerie and filled with drama, but not visible to the naked eye.
- Eventually you will get to overhear gossip, trash talking, and see plenty of two-faced employees.
- Ask a 'dumb' question and your own manager will talk crap about you to your fellow employees, and of course, you'll hear about it.
- Most unapproachable people I've met at a company

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communication. Please.

    Worst Company I Have Ever Worked For

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Inventory Management in San Bruno, CA
    Former Employee - Inventory Management in San Bruno, CA

    I worked at Stella & Dot full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not many, but there are a few smart people around the office. The really smart ones have already left. Most jumped ship right after bonuses were paid.

    Cons

    Management is a joke. Their sales are struggling. The business model is not working. The CEO is putting on an act to try and convince the public that there is a real business behind the sorority party, but sales are declining and there is a decrease in customer interest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GIve up! The company is a sinking ship

    Pros

    The job starts out being fun and exciting. The CEO is a great public speaker and puts on a great show when being interviewed.

    Cons

    What happens behind the scenes is a whole other story. The back room politics are disgusting. The communication to stylists is lacking, proofreading and spell check would help. They can not seem to stay on top of demand, distribution or future projections which leads to major back order issues and unhappy customers. When these problems arise the HO tries to spin it. That is not a great way to run a biz.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to your staff and your stylists and get real with what is going on with your company. Stop sugar coating everything and get real with the facts of biz. You are not paying attention to your supply chain or your HO staff which will not end well.
