    Awesome Company

    Current Employee - Independent Distributor  in  Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Independent Distributor in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Premier Designs full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have worked for Premier Designs for 3 years and love the company. They have progressively improved their product offering as well as the tools for jewelers, such as making the catalog available online and having personal web sites.

    Cons

    Not really any cons. The opportunities are what you make of them as you are the CEO of your own company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and continue to share hope with your jewelers and customers.

    Pros

    50% of what you sell, you keep, 10% commissions wide as you want and 3 levels deep from day 1, biblically based company with a real heart for people, great reputation!

    Cons

    You have to be disciplined and motivated enough to WORK; this is your own business with no one cracking the whip!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never change, stay biblically based and God will continue to bless Premier Designs!

    I have been working at Premier Designs part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I love the fact that the company is very Bible-based and very Christian! It's about time that a company does their best to run on Bible-based morals.

    Cons

    The only thing I do not like about this direct selling company (so far) is that I am supposed to be in business for myself, but I feel that my upline tries to be waaayyyy too involved in MY decision-making. I don't like this at all. Premier seems to be horrible for micro-managing. As long as I am following company policies, I want to do things MY way and when I see fit to do them---not based on what my upline wants to see me do. This is a HUGE con for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's one thing to try to be helpful, but then please tell upline to BACK OFF! This is supposed to be our own business--not our upline's.

    I have been working at Premier Designs part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I loved selling Premier. Having a golden, lifetime guarantee allowed me to ensure quality. Making 50% commission made it worth the time. Plus you get all the training, tips, tricks and pointers you could ever need from your up line. I think my favorite part of all was the variety of people I met doing home shows. I was their "jewelry lady," and that meant something!

    Cons

    I started my business when I was working part time at a school, it was a great fit. I did several shows on week nights, and at least one to two on the weekends, but once I started working full time, I simply couldn't give up that weekend time. Honestly, that's the only con. The company itself is excellent!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think your addition of a website that allows jeweler a to share their product is invaluable. Not being allowed to show catalog items on Facebook took away a huge sales audience, so I appreciate the advancement.

    I worked at Premier Designs for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Set your own hours
    Make 50% of everything you sell
    After initial investment no need to buy anything else.
    Great support
    NO QUOTAS!! Work as much or as little as you want.

    Cons

    You have to have an outgoing personality
    Customers expect you to break the rules just "this once"
    People cancel shows or just don't show up after you work hard for them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advise for upper management. I loved working with Premier and wish that I had a more outgoing personality to continue.

    I have been working at Premier Designs for more than 5 years

    Pros

    As a Premier Designs Jeweler, you are an independent representative not an employee of the company.

    It's like having your own business.

    You earn a 50% commission of all your sales.

    You set your own schedule.

    You meet fabulous people.

    Cons

    I wish I had more hours to devote to my business.

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at Premier Designs part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Jewelry is great. Profit margins very high for direct sales

    Cons

    Business meetings are more like church meetings. Jewelers actually believe that they are doing God's work in sharing beautiful jewels and sales opportunities with other women. If you are not religious or if you are not Christian, you cannot feel like a part of this group at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent and forward-thinking. Too much rests on success of "parties" when the world is changing towards more online interactions. Too many of policies are thinly veiled attempts to limit jeweler autonomy.

    I have been working at Premier Designs part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I can make my own hours and work as little or as much as I want. I earn 50% commission on everything I sell. I meet new people at each show and, in turn, those people also meet new people. Bringing the Premier Designs jewelry into a hostess's home is not only sharing the jewelry with her, but it's also a fun and enjoyable time for everyone.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons about Premier. The leadership and values of Premier Designs are great. They really do care about their jewelers and acknowledge achievement, no matter how small.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep following the principles already set forth because they truly are working.
