    I have been working at BeneFit Cosmetics full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    they treat employees extremely fair. Benefit Cosmetics is a LVMH (Louis Vuitton-Moet Hennessy) company so the benefits are awesome! (no that does not mean Louis Vuitton discounts)

    Cons

    Most of Benefit Cosmetics counters are inside a macy's store so you're considered a 'vendor' and do not get a Macy's discount. time off policies are a bit drastic having to plan things far off in advance.

    Pros

    Love my job! My executive is supportive, not pushy. We discussed my two year goal for a promotion, and together, we made it happen in a years time. Beauty counter has an expected work flow, if you follow it, your goals are reached and the day goes pretty fast. Clients for this line are laid back and usually open to a service or product. As an esthetician, I have built a very loyal clientele, and enjoy all my brow stars. Products are actually effective, services are really popular.

    Paid holidays, vacations, sick days, and benefit packages that most in this industry cannot dream of. 401k, life insurance and gratis.

    Cons

    Pack aging of product gets old ... it's immature and cheap at times and not something I want to pull out of my purse to show off, ever. Sad, because our products work, and are very concentrated. A couple of steps up the lady ladder would benefit the growth of the company even more, as competition has worse product and still sell due to the acceptability of the packaging. That's what appeals to women.

    Also, higher pay after you meet and exceed goals year after year. I hate having to ask.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer a little bit better salary to your top people. Other than that, keep doing what you are doing, I love this job.

    I worked at BeneFit Cosmetics

    Pros

    I loved working at the Brow Bar--great clients, awesome coworkers, fun events! Tips were nice, too. This job taught me a lot about customer service, being comfortable talking to anyone, and turning challenges into opportunities.

    Cons

    Having to stop people who pass by on slow days and hearing "no" a lot gets kind of hard. It was kind of fun trying to think of new ways to talk to people, though.

    Pros

    It's hard not to love this job. Brand is amazing, growing by the minute, and they have beautiful offices that make you want to come to work every day.

    Cons

    ThIs is a big brand that grew too fast from their early entrepreneurial state, therefore, there's an epidemic of very clueless characters holding upper management/executive positions who have no business being there. HR department doesn't foster a culture of appreciation, motivation and growth. Overall public sentiment is that you are just 'stuck'.

    I have been working at BeneFit Cosmetics

    Pros

    The product gratis twice a year is nice, and the starting hourly wage is decent. However, you could easily make more money per hour in a spa setting. Raises also only occur once per year.

    Cons

    The scheduling is terrible. Completely different week to week, varying days every week and vary times. Making it very difficult to rebook clientele, and very difficult to maintain any type of work life balance. They basically only care about their bottom line and whether or not you sell products. However, if you do make your goals positive recognition is never given.
