    Great company philosophy and employees! Benefits for full and part-time

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

    Pros

    -Free makeup samples
    -Helen Sheldon-Beaumont is a fantastic trainer/person. Her passion for makeup is contagious
    -Fun coworkers for the most part

    Cons

    -HORRIBLE management in store.

     Boutique manager would take a week long vacation about every other month for no reason, deny everyone's requests for things like GIVING BIRTH, death in the family, school. Stole, lied, swore at staff, rude and insulted customers, racist.

    -Worst district management I've ever seen.

    Boutique manager was notoriously rude to customers and staff. 8 Customer complaints about the manager, and numerous calls from staff to corporate for things like stealing money/products, lying, swearing at staff.... it all resulted in the staff being told by the DM to "stop bullying the manager and the next complaint means people will be let go for it" Completely baffling to keep someone like that and threaten fire everyone else.

    -Weird requirements that didn't help.

    Having to make a daily sales goal and a ADS. Yet the Sales goal never mattered, only ADS. So every sale had to be over $50 or it dragged your ADS down and you'd be spoken to.

    - No room for growth.
    Only 2 full time positions, Manager and Assistant. Key Holders (2) are lucky if they get 30hrs a week. I was hired part time as a BA after being told DIRECTLY from the DM i would get at LEAST 26 hrs a week. I never saw over 18 and most weeks were roughly 8-10 until half the staff quit and they needed me to cover more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house. North East District is a pathetic mess.
