Pros

The company gives you gratis for new products in hopes you could sell the product better. 25% discount and discounted salon services.

Cons

The problem with gratis is it usually goes to the prestige team but at my store we never where given enough prestige hours and management was usually running the sales floor. Not enough budgeted hours for tasking or prestige, and most of the time a manager would be running the cash wrap or sales floor. Little pay for the tasks you were expected to do.

Advice to Management

Review your budgets for hours on tasking, if you designated more time for tasking it would allow for more service on the floor and increase in sales. Take into consideration if someone went to school for management, and pay them accordingly.

    Pros

    - good products to work with

    Cons

    - for prestige: may tell you to expect 30 hrs/week, when i quit i was getting less than 5 - management (not LP) watching you on store cameras, telling you to hound customers in your earpiece - all employees have extra cleaning/maintenance tasks that should be contracted out - open sales environment means customers don't NEED to be helped, so prestige consultants are often sent home early - never more than one prestige consultant scheduled at once, yet expected to handle an entire salesfloor

    Advice to Management

    it would be nice if store managers didn't lie during interviews or give overinflated expectations, especially if employees can't also work for a competitor; management needs to be more concerned with advertisement and getting customers into stores rather than watching employees' every move.
