Own Business/Independent Stylist (Current Employee), Edmonton, AB – January 12, 2014
Cons: addiction to gorgeous jewelry
I am able to create my own schedule. I work closely with clients to build relationships to further my business and ensure that they are satisfied with their products. I've learnt how to drive my business, market myself, and enjoy my work - life balance.
Independent Stylist (Former Employee), Westchester, NY – September 3, 2014
Pros: free jewelry, flexible schedule that allows you to work as little or as much as you want
Being an independent stylist at Stella & Dot is definitely a lot of fun. Since you basically run your own business by hosting trunk shows, it is as involved as you want it to be. Personally, I hosted trunk shows throughout my time in college when I wasn't too busy, but there are people who host shows every day and make a very nice living for themselves – more... in doing so. A typical day in this role includes contacting people to see if they would be interested in hosting a trunk show, booking trunk shows, and on days that there are trunk shows you have to set up and sell jewelry! I have learned how to effectively network to book shows and how to budget in order to generate a profit. – less
overall an easy job, too long hours and favoritism from managment, unequal treatment.
Merchandiser (Former Employee), Groveport, OH – May 17, 2013
Pros: paid breaks
Cons: short breaks
overall it was an easy job, the hours were extremly too long and I was not hired for the shift described to me in my orientation. I find supervisors would make things more difficult for employees that they did not like. For the first 2 months I was not able to clock in without my supervisor/ onsite manager doing it for me, i was told it would be fixed – more... on a daily basis but the problem remained for 2 months. – less
Independent Stylist (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – September 14, 2012
This was an independent business & a second job, where I had guidance from my mentor but wasn't able to work with a team on a daily basis, which is something I am looking for. I loved the jewelry and their marketing, but I would rather have been a part of the marketing team at their headquarters as opposed to selling and working mainly alone.
Sales and Marketing Representative (Current Employee), Southport, CT – April 4, 2012
Stella & Dot provides hands-on experience by working with new customers. This helped me develop essential tools for sales and marketing as a result of the company's extensive business model. Stella & Dot is a great company to work for, and provides guidance and support when needed. The business model truly allows representatives to build their own business – more... and to succeed. – less
