Pros

Good employee discount, especially during the holidays.
Easy work that does not require a degree.
You get a chance to play around with the tester products.

Cons

Minimal pay.
Angry customers that don't read the fine print on their coupons.
Dealing with theft.

Advice to Management

Proofread and spell check the memos that you send to the stores, because they are oftentimes filled with mistakes, which makes the company look unprofessional.
Make sure that the store managers actually give the gratis to the subordinates - some managers are greedy and hog the free stuff for themselves.
Try to incorporate more high-end vendors, such as Makeup Forever, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, or Inglot.

    Pros

    25% off Retail Discount
    50% off Salon Services

    Cons

    *Bad Managers

    *little working hours

    *they don't hire cleaning crews so you mop and sweep, while the managers count money all the way up until midnight

    *brow bar is a rip off they wax off almost all of your eyebrows, and then fill them back in with a $30 kit
    and don't just think your getting your brows done, there gonna talk you in to buying at least 3 products fo $40 or more

    *you can't tell the customers the truth about products,they actually tell everyone to lie.

    * they hand out coupons for things customers don't want

    * and if you want to make money you have to lie to get people to sign up for allure & glamour magazines (PEOPLE ALWAYS GET MAD AT YOU WHEN THEY GET CHARGED)

    *You have to make customers wait for lead cashier or manager (and this always takes forever) if a customer needs a return or exchange. And if you've ever worked retail, this is a big pain.
