    Pros

    If you like accessories and especially hair trends, this is the company you want to work for. Deals with a lot of fun events, products, and customers. You may transfer from one location to another because it is dispersed throughout the country.

    Cons

    There is lack of organization and a lot of overtime although this may differ depending on the position. The company culture is still too monocultural even though the client pool has been expanded to multicultral level.

    Advice to Management

    I think the HR department needs to really encourage the CEOs of the changes that need to take place in order for this company to grow. If certain changes are not made, the high turnover rate within the company will continue to take place.

    Pros

    Working face to face with customers everyday was a truly a joy.

    Cons

    The management needed to treat employees better and learn how to properly train new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Develop some sort of training program.

    Pros

    At one point we started working like 5 days a week and made good money, but the sales approach we have to use may not be the best (we worked in a booth)

    Cons

    ....we worked in a booth and i hated annoying people with accessories trying to get them to put it on...

    Pros

    You learn how to work with the most unorganized & difficult people.

    Cons

    They overwork you, lack of adjusting to diversity in culture, & they lack in training new employees.

    Advice to Management

    CEOs need to either take business courses & be more open minded. The products are beautiful, but there's no passion for customers or products.

    Pros

    No pros, company does not care about you

    Cons

    Many challenges. Employees are constantly quitting. Management is horrible the worst I have ever worked with. They will make you work crazy hours and not care about your life outside of work. Horrible working conditions, big cultural difference. (korean culture) They will hire you quickly if your not working to their standards. Very unprofessional. Worst job I have ever taken.

    Advice to Management

    Need to change everything and be able to work in American business if they want their company to survive.

    The pay is nice due to the hourly and commission.

    Stop being buttholes and be kind and not sell cheap stuff.

    Pros

    Depending on the owner it can be quite fun, as long as you work hard you can get commission!

    Cons

    Its retail and a sales job... Blek.

    Advice to Management

    Since most of the factories are in China the quality of the products have gone down hill and I do not like how the crystals are no longer a free service, I think its giving the comapany a bad image. On the plus side I like knowing one day you can become an owner not just a manager.
