Great products, wonderful customers, but unorganized and incompetent management and out-of-touch company.

Beauty Ambassador (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

ProsGratis. Always receiving new products and the discount is great. Very upbeat and energetic setting. The customers are amazing (you have a few bad apples.) You get to play in makeup all day. Definitely room to advance in the company if you put in the work.

ConsMicromanagement!! Every little detail is overseen, and not in a good way. This company spends so much time on the little petty things (like clocking in exactly on the minute) that they miss out on a lot of the bigger issues.The company is all about numbers. Incompetent and underqualified management is a big problem, but an even bigger problem is when complaints are made very little if anything is done. They drag out issues until someone gets fed up and just quits, and then they move on as if nothing happened.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen there are several complaints about management, from several different people, something needs to be done. I know a lot of your ideas sound good in board meetings, but on the actual selling floor they're quite the opposite. Stop giving direction from way up, come spend a day in an actual boutique and see what it takes to efficiently run the store, and go from there.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
