I have been working at Bluemercury full-time (Less than a year)
After reading unflattering reviews on Glassdoor, I was a little skeptical of applying for a position with Bluemercury when I saw a recent posting. But since I love makeup and Im a beauty junkie, with retail experience I thought I would give it a try. Easy interview and within a week I was hired. My first day I was greeted by the store Mgr., given a small gift bag of samples, a name tag and we were knee deep in training. 3 months later and the sparkle has not rubbed off. I’m so glad I didn’t allow the negative comments to dampen my spirits. My store Mgr and fellow team members are really enthusiastic and create a party everyday. My DM is a little strict but she is all about the business and is passionate. She loves hearing our favorite tip and trick and is a true leader. Upper Mgmt is very hands on and is present. We are given goals and tools to succeed. If you put your heart and soul, skill and will you and your team can hit bonus.
Need more social media and marketing to drive more business to the stores.
Advice to Management
Continue to inspire thru great leadership and conviction.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bluemercury (Washington, DC) in November 2010.
Started with a phone call stating that they are interested.
Followed with three subsequent phone interviews with the same person -- should have listened to the red flags here.
They asked a lot of questions about my expertise in this area, picked my brain for ideas, seemed like they were interested in me. Instead they were interested in my information.
After they got what they wanted, no follow up calls, no response to my calls or email.
They used the interview process to gather competitive information for their own gain.
Very unprofessional and lacked integrity.
