    Pros

    BE is a great place to work if you enjoy doing makeup and selling. An outgoing, friendly personality is definitely a must if you want to be successful. The employee discount is great and there is a lot of opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Some of the customers can be a pain and it's not easy to take time off. Even a part-time job has to be treated like a career. There are a lot of expectations, but if you work hard you will be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better POS system
