    Pros

    Lots of free product to try every month great hours for retail

    Cons

    Low pay, low bonuses, expensive insurance, small staff

    Advice to Management

    Raise the base salary for store management. Employees are making almost as much as management

    Pros

    Independent working environment with interesting customers

    Cons

    Poor pay and constant pressure from management

    Advice to Management

    Make this career sustainable allowing sales consultants to make a livable wage. Over hiring in territories and pitting sales consultants against each other does not motivate sales.

    Pros

    PTO, medical benefits, plenty of OT opportunities, friendly people

    Cons

    Overworked for what we are paid.

    Advice to Management

    I understand added responsibility for more experienced people, but at a certain point, there should be some sort of raise.

    Pros

    Loved learning of all the latest hair products! Lots of great education!!

    Cons

    I don't think the pay is enough for employees or managers

  8. Not a real sales job.

    I worked at Beauty Systems Group

    Pros

    You make your own schedule for the most part. The customers(salon owners) that "get it" are fun to work with. The samples are fun to play with, and you can wear your hair however you choose due to the nature of the job.

    Cons

    No base pay. The DSC position is 100% commission. The health benefits are a joke. No car allowance, mileage reimbursement, or expenses paid at all, outside of the measly monthly $120 you're provided with.

    You work in direct competition with Cosmoprof stores. Lots of inventory, shipping, and billing snafus which can lead to you losing business which in turn will lower your paycheck due to ruined business relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Don't say you'll reimburse DSCs for say, hair show parking, then never submit the forms. $60 for 3 years in a row is a lot of money to some people who aren't on a six figure salary like you are. Stop hiring embarrassing people who make the true professionals look bad. Stop over saturating markets with DSCs so there is more opportunity for others. Stop encouraging DSCs to discount to get sales which in turn lowers their paycheck, while yours is unaffected.

    Pros

    The 20% off discount and occasional free samples were nice.

    Cons

    The pay was terrible. I was kept one hour below full time so I couldn't receive benefits. Employee expectations were completely unrealistic. The DM literally told me one time that she expected me to be able to front and face (arrange product on the shelf so that everything is pulled forward and facing the front), hang shelf tags. check out customers and unload boxes (in the back) at the same time. I never felt appreciated or respected.

    Advice to Management

    Just care a little more. There are real people working for you and they're not doing it because they are passionate about arranging shampoo bottles on a shelf. They need money. Up your pay a little. Minimum wage is pathetic.

    Pros

    Management has more time off than staff. Hard to find when they are needed

    Cons

    Poor, poor management! Obviously, they hire from within. Management skills style went out in the 1970's.
    Embarrassing follow thru! So for all of the Top Gun sales people, you maybe the best of the best but you will still have to wait to hear from the mothership...

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should replace lower management

    Pros

    The occasional opportunity for education on products provided by Reps., samples, and the connections/relationships made with salon owners.

    Cons

    Not a place to work as a career. I have worked here for more than 2 years and have been "baited" with offers for positions that have not materialized. Very low pay especially for the amount of work required.

    Advice to Management

    Rewarding managers who only put the company at risk for legal action erodes the morale of quality employees.
    If this company continues to refuse providing it's employees with a livable wage then at very least hire competent managers who will treat employees like the human beings that we are.
