    Pros

    It was fun going into all of the stores to help them with their day to day business is as a special guest. The products are great and a very reasonable price. They sell themselves and make great gifts that everyone likes. The bath products are simply amazing and smell delicious. The purity cleansers are very nice and clean the skin well. They have something for all skin types. If you understand basic skincare and can approach people you will do well. The sales per hour goals were reasonable, even in the summer time. It was easy to sell during the holiday season. Sales incentives were fun too. If you sold so many of a focus product, than you could earn one for yourself.

    Cons

    The communication was all over the place. The training was minimal. One store could be over an hour away for working a 4 or 5 hour shift. Some stores welcomed freelance staff more than others. If it was your fist time in a door you did not know what you were walking into. Not all stores of the same name are operated in the same way. The schedule can change quickly. If this is not a primary job or a fun job plan on about 3-19 hours per week. It depends on where the managers need you and what events are going on at the store. Some retailers do not get enough stock of the featured deal or GWPs. The customers get frustrated. Work with the store management or counter management to get the needed information regarding on hands. Communicate the stock concerns to your Territory Manager. Some stores were horribly understaffed and many customers would ask for help with things we did not know anything about. It was nice to be able to say I am a guest in the store with Philosophy. If you are sales and product savvy enough you could help in other lines and link sale back to philosophy so you could meet your goals.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little time with the freelancers so they have an in depth understanding of how truly amazing this product line is. Communicate schedule changes beforehand. Send freelance in with little gift perks to help drive sales. Overall, I had a good experience working for them because of my open selling experience and skincare background.
