    Pros

    - seeing new products before they hit the shelves

    - opportunity for promotion

    - my direct superior valued my opinions and ideas

    - majority of beauty associates (young and mature) were absolutely lovely to work alongside

    - best loyalty program available by far (Sephora step up your loyalty prog game!!!)

    Cons

    - Head Office pushed for loyalty prog "opt-ins" (only applies to Beauty Boutiques) so much so, that they were being attained in dishonest ways

    - Head Office also rewarded said dishonest sales associates for their "high numbers" of opt-ins

    - miserable, bitter, insecure, dishonest associates poisoned the healthy, fun-loving work environment

    - a lot of illiterates work in retail (especially the beauty industry)

    Advice to Management

    - seldom do I find friendly and enthusiastic mgmt in beauty industry retail; my direct superior was truly under-appreciated by her own superiors

    - front shop mgmt, although i did not always have to report to them, were petty and catty; regularly picking on the same "weak" individuals
