      Pros

      Flexible role, great quality of fabrics and construction, lots of "back end" support for order entry, payment, shipping, etc. Stylist base is for the most part very helpful and friendly. They have allowed for people to stay in longer without as much stress. Not a lot of $$$ to get in the business and ways to earn the on-going materials.

      Cons

      You must get your own clients....which is tougher that you might think. Those with a large, developed network will do best, You can do it without a big network but it will take more time to grow your biz. Also, too much emphasis to grow a team, which turns off many people. Fine to want to have a team but you should also be able to just be a good seller and not feel like a second class person. Adding things that seem to cost a lot of money to launch for little return. IE, Moto jackets and swimsuits to name a few. They also started sending WAY TOO MANY emails to our clients. That seems to have balanced out a bit. Lots of changes in management which made for a bumpy year or so. Hopefully it is getting ready to smooth out.

      Pros

      Outstanding products and very flexible opportunity. I think that one poster with the negative review was very misinformed. We do not pay for the website where we enter our orders and all of your core fabrics are included. Many new enhancements to our marketing tools and upgrades to our ordering system - love the electronic look books!

      Cons

      New compensation plan has soured many on the opportunity. While we understand changes may be necessary trying to sugar coat it was insulting and alienated many -especially those that embraced the previous year's tag line of "a shirt that fits for a life that fits!" If you aren't a team builder or cannot sell over $4,000 a month you aren't wanted. Makes it harder to recruit for those of us that are honest with presenting the opportunity. Change in the new stylist training is very concerning and must be having an impact on returns, recruiting and tarnishing our reputation. Focus on only recruiting in "your own backyard" is flawed. Lots of turnover at HQ never a good sign and Stylist Care support is less responsive and knowledgeable over the past year.

      Your market segment is limited

      Pros

      The quality of the clothing is spectacular, given the fabrics are imported from Italian mills. No inventory required.

      Cons

      The structure of the business and how it markets its products, is very hard to generate leads. The prices of the clothing is not targeted to your normal 9-5 male worker. Your market share is very limited, there are a lot of other companies doing almost the same but at a more convenience way. J.Hilburn strives on the personal and convenience module but doesn't stand out from the rest doing the same thing. Lack of recognition and too many fees. You have to buy your own tools for selling and the lack of training.

      Pros

      Exceptional fabrics and quality garments.

      Cons

      CEO and upper management don't know how to run the company and work with the field. Culture is negative and survival of the fittest. No collaboration. New stylists often not truly welcomed to team. Company reached point where new leaders, executives and CEO need to be replaced for growth.
