Pros

Great company to work for. Awesome benefits. Would recommend Estee Lauder for those that are serious team players and get the big picture.

Cons

From my experience with Estee Lauder I have yet to come across something that would be labled a "con".

    Pros

    Great benefits like free make-up and skin care. Seminars are fun to go to. Laid back atmosphere. Pretty good incentives.

    Cons

    Estee Lauder is very unrealistic of goals. They strive for goals that are 8% above last year, but when the economy keeps going down how do you get 8% above. They do not recognize you on achievement but tell you to up your sales and that the month is terrible and you need to work harder, even though you have. There is no training, you are just put in the job and are expected to know what to do. There is no communication between Younkers Managers and Estee Lauder Managers, so when you are supposed to be working and have a counter manager phone meeting you are not scheduled and miss it and get yelled at by Estee Lauder and Younkers even though it’s not your fault.
    If you are have struggles they fail to come to the store and help even if you request it because you are a small store so they just don’t care. I quit the job and went to fragrance and my store manager never even told Estee Lauder! So when they called and yelled at me for the monthly numbers being down and I told them I didn’t work for Estee Lauder for two weeks it was a surprise to them!
    I loved what I did as a beauty advisor but hated being disrespected.

    What is 3% commission!!!!!!! For all the work that I did I'd expect to get more than that!
    Calling customers, follow up calls, doing three appoitments a day (make-up and skin care consultations), persuading people to buy products, and working my tail end off to meet unrealistic goals!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work with the store managers where you have counters. Train your employees!
