I have been working at Bare Escentuals part-time (more than a year)

Pros

The way they train their boutique associates promotes empathy for customers and also to create more of a friendship with each customer rather than treating them as simply a transaction. Most boutique managers also promote a zero-tolerance policy for gossip or "bullying" so it's a much more of a stress-free work place than most.

Cons

It is true that if you get the wrong management you may not be thrilled.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Really train the associates who you can see merit and talent in so they may thrive and be promoted.

    I worked at Bare Escentuals full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great product, customers, retail partners. It's an easy-going, high-volume company that's made great efforts to bring on talent across all divisions and functions in the last couple of years.

    Cons

    Everyone still seems to be 'winging' it, not enough true talent or smarts. Job changing all the time. Get stuck with the wrong manager and your life will become micromanaged hell. A lot of advancement opportunity but promotions not based on merit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start recognizing the right people.

    I have been working at Bare Escentuals part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Bare Escentuals promotes a positive and fun work environment. The company is client-focused and aims to provide the best customer service possible. If you do your job right, it can be very fulfilling because you can make a difference in someone's life. Part-time Beauty Ambassadors have a great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Not everyone on the team shares the same motives and positive attitudes as the company. Working with mostly women can make for a catty environment. Once you work up to management, there is not much work/life balance.
