    Pros

    Great team atmosphere. Fun work. Lots of day-to-day variety. Great customers. Wonderful products in all price points. Lots of training for the employees.

    Cons

    Have to work nights and weekends, plus lots of hours during the holiday season, including Thanksgiving night. No guaranteed hours. Sometimes you get 24 hours in a week, other times you're lucky to get 4 hours.

    Pros

    Gratis, vendor support, Gratis, starter job

    Cons

    Overworked, minimal staff in prestige dept., not to mention your additional role is that of a security guard in the fragrance dept. Watching management harass blacks and hispanics is ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to respect and listen to your employees and their life happenings. If it weren't for vendors support, what would PMs do?

    Pros

    Easy, discount on products, hours are simple, discount on services, work is easy, dress code is simple, make pretty good friends while working

    Cons

    lazy management, customers will yell out you over coupons on lipstick, everyone knows everything, managers discuss private concerns with people that are not on management, not many people over the age of 40, pay is based off who hires you and not on skill, zero training

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the office and help your employees, some of us have college degrees and don't need talked down to like we are idiots, give more acknowledgment to your staff, I shouldn't know who is getting fired before they do

    Pros

    Love most of my guests and the sheer number of products we have access and education on. Staying on trend and up to date on new product trends in the beauty industry.

    Cons

    District Manager is spread too thin to realm be effective. No realistic answers to real time questions when asked, though she expects action plans on the fly while we are actively assisting guests and running the floor.

    Advice to Management

    Be more hands on and realistic about the expectations of your General Managers and Associate Managers in the field.

    Pros

    50% discount off ALL salon services and brow bar services, 25% off everything else in the store

    Cons

    HR is difficult to get ahold of, management is a joke, LP is a joke, and employees are treated like criminals instead of looking to customers for theft

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating employees like criminals, focus on guest theft instead. Place at least one LP employee in every store. At least set up a 24 hour HR hotline for employees who need help after closing the store. Pay is low, even for management.

    Pros

    It was a very fun and energetic place to work. You have to be very dedicated to build a client base.

    Cons

    Top management is not very interested in moving up within. I did not have much support when I wanted to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Promoting within is better than hiring outside. Even if the outside has more experience. People that move with in stay with the company longer.
