    I have been working at Beauty Brands full-time

    Pros

    I like my coworkers and I genuinely enjoy customer service.

    Cons

    Management is awful. If they don't like you your stuck and they pay the people they like more. Training is a joke and if you don't know something, due to lack of training, you get punished for it.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to delicate you can't do everything. Your own personal feelings for someone shouldn't have anything to do with jobadvancemwnt or pay if they are a hard worker and do there job well.

    I worked at Beauty Brands part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a great place to try or all of the makeup testers whenever it is slow. You get first pick of news products that come out.

    Cons

    They took away incentive and kept really low pay rates. They don't do a good job of making you feel like a team. They make team members complete against each other for rewards which fosters hostility.

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay off you don't want to have an employee incentive program
