A humiliating, miserable experience as a sales associate.

Pros

The discount is fair and worth it because of the selection of merchandise you are able to purchase.
As a cosmetic associate, you are also able to receive gratis from the company that you work for.

Cons

Unfair wages. You are hired in at one amount and if you are unable to keep up with the unattainable goal, your salary is cut. Sometimes it is cut by over a dollar. The goals are not just with your cosmetic line that you work for. You are expected to cross sell.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make the goals attainable to keep good, knowledgable staff. Do not cut employee's wages. Most of the lines do not have commission so it is unfair to cut their pay without commission. Make the selling goals appropriate for the job they are hired to do .

    Pros

    the weekly pay was the best reason that i felt i was working there, also the ability to visual merchadise was another plus. they sometimes worked with school schedules

    Cons

    not all the management was polite to the workers. seemed to be division in the management areas which then related to how they treated other employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work on how you communitcate with the staff, a monthly or bi monthly training for managers and sales staff should be required on how to use the best words when dealing with others.
