Indep. Chocolatier (Current Employee) – Spokanne, WA – June 12, 2014
This job has alot of major plusses but can be very challenging. Requires ALOT of networking and lead generation, communications (various, phone etc) and can be very draining. The Company is VERY supportive of contractors and sends out a very nice New Chocolatier package. Be PREPARED to sell... sell, sell, and party demos are not so easy to pull off and can cost the host and/or contractor alot. Be excited about DCD, yes, but be realistic. I LOVE chocolate but I SO wish Dove and DCD products had health conscious ingredients and no artificial additions. Again, great company but be aware contractor has to INVEST quite a bit of their self and their motivation. You can also recruit new sellers and the PR element is there, also gain exp. in interviwer skills.
be own boss, love your product, public contact/speaking
can be hard to sell, costs to contractor/imvestments may not pay off
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Lancaster, CA – March 6, 2014
For a direct sales company in a sea of hundreds, this one stood out to me. The company was very helpful, team mates always willing to help, a sense of family. It can be difficult to be successful at direct sales, but with the help of others and the huge support system they offer, one can truly be successful in attaining their goals. It was a pleasure to work with them. -A typical day- sign in to account online to check goals, assignments if any leads were issued, check and learn new product information and complete training if necessary, check calendar for the day's appointments, call clients, prepare for presentations if scheduled, check in with team mates and motivate them by reaching out if they need help, post marketing/advertisements for new products, market business by meeting new people, gather contacts for leads and follow up with them, set new appointments...all from the comfort of my own home and on my own time :).

Independent Chocolatier (Current Employee) – Western New York – November 15, 2012
Conducting Chocolate Tasting parties is the latest in home based parties. Much like the other DSA companies that are out there, we come to your location and conduct a Chocolate Tastings with our exclusive line of Dove gourmet products. I love what I do, and our hosts and guests are satisfied that they've been treated to a wide variety of ready to eat products that you can easily entertain with! Products are very versatile!
products are delicious, and backed by mars corporation!
That is what Dove Chocolate Discoveries is, your own business. I liked it because it allowed me to let my own schedule and work from home for the most part. But the product what expensive, and good product will be. But in today's world people do not want to spend and arm and a leg on chocolate, no matter how good it is.
