    the company was sold to shisiedo, to stop the bleeding they did a series of layoffs

    Advice to Management

    properly analysis of reviews could have salvaged really great brand representatives, rather than the bitter and disgruntled team members

    Pros

    decent pay for retail, some gratis,50% discount

    Cons

    I loved this company when I started- right after sheseido bought it over. It used to be about makeup and artistry and now all they call about is $$$$$$. Unrealistic goals and expectations when they do not even know how the boutique works, what the traffic is like and what the costumer base is. I get that it is a sales position but I prefer to sell people things that best fit their needs- not a wrinkle serum to a 21 yr old since it is their new "focus." Corporate micro manages every single thing you do and treat their hard working employees like they do not matter.

    Advice to Management

    Reward and recognize your hard working employees and give the boutique managers a chance to run their stores.
