    Pros

    Had fun while working with the guests and raising money for charity!

    Because you don't want to be a sales person with an objective and instead recommend the right product they look down upon you

    Advice to Management

    Keep it real. Don't mix business with pleasure

    I worked at Aveda full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hired to be a Team Leader in the worst performing location in the company. Part of it has to do with the location of the store, on the second floor of a high-end mall which has absolutely no traffic, especially after 6 pm.

    Cons

    Demonstrating hair care products on a customers hair, not in a freshly washed condition.

    Advice to Management

    Be as upfront as possible to all incoming employees

    Pros

    Great people, amazing mission and outstanding education. This company truly has a vision for something bigger and greater then just a high performing lifestyle brand.

    Cons

    If you are not agile, fast moving and have an adaptable personality you may not be a good fit.
