    Quite intense pressure towards selling certain produsts

    Advice to Management

    Better communication, it can be very unorganised


  2. Fun, energetic, fast-paced environment. You get to work one-on-one services and do lots of team events.

    Pros

    Great way to build a clientelle and learn the ins and outs of selling retail products. Raises are based on sales and rebooking goals. Cash tips. It is a corporation so everything is done by the book and state laws. Full-time benefits and gratis.

    Cons

    No commission for services. Retail sales can be overwhelming and distract from the service. Blackout dates for time off during the holidays. The team becomes tight-knit, so resolving issues between co-workers can be difficult. You get to deal with Benefit management in addition to Macy's management. Not much room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to praise employee achievements. These are often overlooked when there is a new product and event to push every month.

    Pros

    They promote a party atmosphere and encourage creativity. each day is unique. It is an innovative company that values its clients and employees equally.

    Cons

    It can be overwhelming if you do not delegate and manage your time properly. You are encouraged to stay late. Importance is placed on willingness to ignore other obligations.

    Advice to Management

    Remind your employees that balance is an important part of overall satisfaction. Celebrate excellence when you see it... Don't wait until it is too late.

    Pros

    Recognizable company, great products, fun environment. Paid training and free products!! You have to be perky all the time, which isn't too hard depending on personality, perkiness helps bring in the good/nice customers.

    Cons

    Meeting daily goals were hard sometimes. Had a lazy counter manager.

    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 Management

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

    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

    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

    Beautiful environment, makeup gratis

    Cons

    Horrible management, sad outcome and HR might not care at all.

    Advice to Management

    Please show your worker's appreciation. Try to train the LSA'S how not to downgrade but uplift the crew. You have to have a way of showing better communication than adding fear, resentment and being put down constantly. There is such thing as constructive criticism, apparently not with this job. I hope for future employees that they will not have such heartache and are motivated and trained correctly. Sadly I wasn't. ..
