    I worked at Stella & Dot Family of Brands

    Pros

    None anymore. You used to get 50% off jewelry now it's 25% unless you sell sell sell.

    Cons

    You have to buy all your won products and displays. Which never ends because they are constantly discontinuing certain lines so you have to buy more each season. They run promotions to earn credit for free jewelry or qualify for 50% off but it's a scam. As a stylist if your jewelry breaks to bad that "we want the customer to always be happy" doesn't apply to stylists. You have to buy it again and at full price. The company makes money off the stylists not customers. If you want to make money you will be working more hours than any sales job I've ever had. And if you have stylists under you and you don't make your required dollar amount those stylist get out under the person above you and they make the money not you. There is little support for stylists each team is very different. Very little training. They sell stay at home moms on oh you just have to throw trunk shows with your friends and for and for a few hours a week of work you can make great money. It's a total lie. They want you to use an iPad with their app but you have to buy it. Most will spend more than they ever make. They keep expanding the line so you have to buy more and more and more products. Jewelry, purses, bags, makeup, scarves, glasses.....

    I worked at Stella & Dot Family of Brands for less than a year

    Pros

    I worked as a freelancer for 40 hrs in the creative team (basically full time but technically didn't have a full time employment) I absolutely loved working here because it was extremely organized!! A designer's absolute dream come true. Great leadership as well. My manager was really awesome at giving feedback and it was always really helpful. She always gave it in a constructive and helpful manner. I always felt like I knew what needed to be changed afterwards. I would work here full time if I could honestly. I love to whole process because it was something I've never seen in any company. Great work/life balance as well.

    Cons

    I don't really have anything bad to say! I would work here full time but the one con is probably as a freelance graphic designer, there was a high turn over mainly because I don't think they wanted someone to be there full time which seemed odd to me cause I totally would have if they offered me the position. I eventually went separate ways because I couldn't see longevity in the company.
