Work from Home
Direct Sales Person/Self-employed (Former Employee), Online Sales while living in Hattiesburg, MSJanuary 6, 2014
Pros: jewelry
Cons: not everyone's cut out for direct sales
If you can afford the kits each season, can attend all the training, and you have a charismatic personality, you can earn a good living with Premier Designs, INC's work from home Direct Sales Company. You have to know that the more jewelry shows you have per month, the more income you'll have. Income is by Commission only.
Premier was founded by Andy – more... Horner who had already made his way in life but wanted to give to single mothers so they could earn a decent income and still stay home and raise their own children. The company was founded in 1985 and is debt free.
You have to have a $1200 show in order to get a commission check from Premier of $600 which I never managed to do so. All I actually earned was 50% of each sale $50 and above and some months there was no income at all while other months I cleared after Jeweler's fees and give-aways from my own pocket, less than a $100 for one month.
There aren't actual "co-workers" as in a company you go to work for on a day-to-day basis.
The hardest part is getting out every day and basically selling yourself to a potential customer. Wearing the jewelry, 6 pieces, daily: necklace, earrings, 2 rings, watch and bracelet all matching. You are your own advertisement.
There are websites now that Premier has set up for Hostesses to view catalogs and the Jeweler/Designer has to pay for these each month; it comes out of your account you set up when you start in business.
I am not a charismatic person and though I love jewelry, I don't always feel up to wearing so much of it. Also, all my sales were mainly online and Premier wants their Jewelers/Designers to get in the homes of Hostesses and have shows: "See the need; meet the need."
The most enjoyable part of being a self-employed Direct Sales Person is that it pulled me out of my comfort zone and forced me to get out and meet new people. Of course, having Premier's fabulous jewelry to wear was a huge plus too. – less

Fun to work with other ladies
Jeweler (Current Employee), Fort Wayne, INApril 26, 2013
Pros: making large sums of money in a matter of a few hours
Cons: no guaranteed hours
This is a direct sales job. This has helped me learn to connect with customers and make them feel confident. I have learned what it takes to manage a business as far as sales and profit. I do not have anyone that works along side of me, but there are other consultants that I have regular meetings with. We like to share our success and bounce ideas off – more... of each other.
The hardest part of my job would be to convince other people to purchase a product in order for me to make a sale. Sometimes it takes a lot of demonstration and specific examples of what can be done with the product, and how it will be beneficial to them. However, I love being able to work with people directly. I make a lot of new friends by meeting several people each day that I work. – less

Excellent opportunity for women of all ages. Product sales through home parties and direct sales. Set own hours. No quotas. No territories. Great leadership and wonderful product. Best part of job is serving others, meeting new people and having a ton of fun! Hardest part is not eating too many brownies.

It was up to the individual as to how there business progressed.

Independent Jewelry Consultant (Former Employee), Hilliard, OHJanuary 21, 2013
I was a Independent Jewelry Representative. I would go into homes and present Premier's jewelry line and help the ladies select accessories to best fit their lifestyle. It was a very fun job and I could work how much I wanted and when I wanted. The only downside is finding customers who want to host a party. Everyone loved the jewelry and the hostess – more... benefits were excellent. – less

My own business
Direct Sales (Former Employee), Fulton, ILOctober 2, 2012
Pros: great rewards and compensation
Cons: economy
I did direct sales for Premier Designs, I did home shows and wholesale orders. I would go into a customers home and present my Jewelry to them and all the benefits of having a show give them. I was my own boss and managed my own schedule. I took care of all questions, concerns and returns. Also we had a great guarantee so there was a lot of upkeep on – more... keeping the customers happy with pieces if they would break or tarnish. The hardest part was continuing to have more home shows in a tough economy, when people weren't spending extra money on fashion. The best part of the job was the people I met. My premier family and the hostess that I shared my product with. – less

Premier Design Jewelry
Sales Representative for Premier Design Jewelry (Former Employee), Arvada, COJune 8, 2012
Pros: interaction with customers and free jewelry.
Cons: late evening hours
A typical work day for Premier included calling possible contacts for home parties, scheduling parties, filling and delivering orders. The home parties were the highlight for me. I loved presenting the jewelry and giving fashion tips as well as interacting with the customers. The hardest part of the job for me was the evening hours.

I learned a lot – more... about jewelry and fashion as well as time management. inventory control and bookkeeping. Since it was my own business my contact with other Premier reps was occassional but very rewarding. The company attracts nice people and we all had the same goals. – less
