    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    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.....

    Former Intern - Full Time Intern 

    I worked at Stella & Dot Family of Brands

    Pros

    Beautiful office, internship was paid, was provided with multiple opportunities to sit in on business meetings that provided insight into a real-world business enviornment

    Cons

    Severe emphasis on seniority that creates a fear-based environment for interns or other entry-level coworkers to speak up, ask questions, give an opinion, etc.
