A fun job that is a good jumping off point

Beauty Ambassador (Former Employee)
Chesterfield, MO

I worked at Bare Escentuals part-time for more than a year

ProsFriendly people, LOTS of gratis, fun training, Good place to work.

ConsVery gossipy, Sometimes can focus to much on sale and not as much on customer.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be so gossipy. When your first hired we are told that If you get caught gossiping about someone you will lose your job.... But once I started working more often I realized that was a very forgotten rule. The biggest gossipers there were my managers

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
