great discount
good pay
nice bonus incentives
amazing products


how can your store be effective if you have to absorb your own PTO hours offered by the company??
attendance policy is way out of line
focus on the ADS!!forget converting more lookers into buyers. They say it's about the service you deliver, but controlling ADS is not as productive as controling your UPT and conversion.
As a store manager you have no say in nothing.every little thing has to be approved. their payroll is terrible for stores, it's not effective at all.
It could be better if had a DM that wasn't so mean and would actually give you touch bases like she should, give other feedback than just NEGATIVES!
company's technologies are out dated and they should consider being less greety with their promotions and actually offer deals that encourage clients to spend

Advice to ManagementAdvice

less micromanagement, more appreciation,actually give reviews like mentioned in the handbook.Be more supportive, and stop barking at us when we have questions.

    Bare Escentuals has great products!


    The company changed after they were bought out. This company does not care about their employees, its all about getting the most $$ out of your clients pockets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your staff should be more than just a name on a piece of paper...this company thinks of their staff as very replaceable.

    friendly working environment
    helpful staff
    room to grow and learn from colleagues
    very organized


    depends a lot upon personal skill and comfort with cosmetics
    a lot of products to know about

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    very organized with monthly meetings with the staff, which was really nice. it would be nice to have individual meetings with the manager to discuss any issues at hand.
