    Pros

    Independent job where I can build relationships in my business without competition going on around me such as other beauty advisors right next to me like at Nordstrom.

    Cons

    Rate of pay is determined if Advisor makes the goal for the month only which is unfair if certain conditions such as lack of stock arise.

    Advice to Management

    Pay quality associates for the time they put in building customer based sales by paying them direct commission.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Alliance Boots.

    Interview

    I got an email asking to have a chat-interview. The interviewer had a list of general questions to ask and copied and pasted it onto the chat. It was easy since I wasn't put on the spot and I could think about my answer before typing. It seemed almost informal, and he didn't respond to my interview answers. He just went on to the next question.
