    Pros

    Hardworking everyday people, trying to make the best of the situation, crazy rules, and micromanagement , while making very little money for the stress/ anxiety level endured.

    Cons

    Middle management just puppets forced to do as they're told, or lose their underpaid jobs. Unfair HR/ Executive team, with no recourse for harassment. Not a good place for your mental health.

    Advice to Management

    It's too late.

    Pros

    The Best hostess rewards program in the direct sales industry. Get a lot of jewelry for free or at a great discount

    Cons

    You had to put in a show every 3 months to stay active, cant do cash and carry which is annoying at vendor events. A minimum of $6 charged for each show.


  6. Was a wonderful company until the end still have not sent my customers money owed or jewelry

    Pros

    Control over your earnings. If you want to earn more you just work harder. Great flexibility, you can work your business around your life.

    Cons

    You have to create your own leads. If you recruit a bunch of people you need to build up your calendar again.
