      I have been working at Chloe + Isabel part-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Lifetime guarantee on the jewelry.

      Cons

      Company used to not push recruiting, but now it does. You used to be able to work your business on your own time and not have to worry about minimum sales. Now you have to have a minimum of $500 over 6 consecutive months. Jewelry has severely gone down in quality. I used to not be allergic to the earrings which was a huge selling point for me. The new earrings I can only wear for an hour before I start getting a reaction....

      Advice to Management

      No minimum sales and bring back the quality/hypoallergenic quality in the jewelry.

      Pros

      Good community of women trying to make it work!

      Cons

      Products are now far less quality and designs have not kept up with current trends. Difficult to sell a product when you no longer like any if the pieces! They now require minimums and push you to recruit. Used to be proud they were not an MLM, but that changed!!

      Advice to Management

      New design team, stay away from the MLM platform

      I worked at Chloe + Isabel full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      There are no pros: You work for free, you have to pay for the jewelry (even discounted, that doesn't seem fair), too much competition; you're on your own with training unless they like you, management makes it look like they're concerned, but it's all talk and no action. Then they kick you out for not making enough money for them. Unlike the stated vision of the company, they aren't out to help the merchandiser.

      Cons

      expensive jewelry, horrible management, horrible mentoring, exclusive mentality, cliquish, con artists, the CEO is out to profit from you before kicking you out

      Advice to Management

      In the beginning of my time (October 2017) with C + I, I thought it was a great company to work with and it was fun. That quickly changed as I spent over $1,000 and earned only about $100. Granted, my family is also to blame for lack of support. But I also believe this company is partly to blame as I did not have time to seek a new network. I posted on Instagram, twitter, and Facebook multiple times per day, and went...

      Pros

      Excellent quality jewelry and amazing design team No requirement to recruit to stay a merchandiser No annual fee for the website Customers are very enthusiastic Rich rewards for merchandisers and hosts

      Cons

      They’ve started making the incentive trips entirely based around recruiting rather than giving the option to earn through sales, and it’s something like needing to recruit 5 Qualifying people in a 2.5 month period.

      Pros

      Work your business full time; or just as a side hustle. You get out what you put in.... that was the company I joined.

      Cons

      the message of female empowerment is infuriating. New leadership took over in 2017. No longer about supporting the community and female empowerment. Leadership will not listen to feedback given repeatedly from the field. It’s Denise is iminate.

      Advice to Management

      Heartbroken to see what used to be an embracing community destroyed to feed a leaders ego.

      Not an MLM> no need to recruit others Flexible Having parties and selling is pretty fun

      Cons

      No regular pay—some months are great, some are a bust. You never know. There’s pressure from management to keep buying new collections, which can eat away at your profits quickly

      Pros

      Discount on jewelry Support from District/Region Management is great Great group of supportive consultants in the same boat

      Cons

      The jewelry cost has gone up significantly, and I feel like I cannot justify the cost to my customers anymore. Therefore, its hard to make sales now. The design is the same thing recycled over and over with different colors isnt a great strategy. Might be cost effective for corporate, but the customers can see it and are annoyed and not purchasing. The new leadership is a bit funky. I preferred when Chantal was...

      Advice to Management

      Please work on the design process--it seems that you've gotten lazy lately. Just because a piece sells well in one color set, doesnt mean it needs to be reproduced 3 more times in different colors. You've got to do something about the pricing. The quality of the pieces has gone down, in my opinion, so why do the prices need to go up so significantly? Trying to cover up the fact that you're reusing designs by upping...
