    I worked at Beauty Solutions (New York) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    None. None. None. None.

    Cons

    Training was awful!!!! Expected to know the entire job OVERNIGHT. CEO was cheap, degrading and completely unprofessional. Worst job I've ever had. Micromanaged!!! The worst was watching the CEO penny pinch by re-using the face creams. The packing came in wrong and CEO decided he wanted to extract the product from the bottle by hand and put it into new bottles. It was just Disgusting.

    Advice to Management

    Need a new CEO and management.

    I worked at Beauty Solutions (New York) full-time

    Pros

    Competitive work salary, end of yr bonuses, free skincare products, sink or swim mentality which can be great work experience in the future

    Cons

    No HR department, no clear department structure, Micro manages everyone, over steps boundaries, political talk in the office, racial profiling and slurs openly said by managment, Managment is uptight, conservative when convenient. Cheap for many things. Antiquated system, absolutely no structure, the company is being held by scotch tape. No sense of company morale, no team to back you up.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employees, practice a no political talk in the office rule, hire a general manager, hire an HR team, be respectful to your employees, understand that each employee has a personal life that goes beyond the office. Stop playing favorites with family members employed. Multitasking is a great skill however, you can never perfect one skill if you're doing so many things at the same time. Stop overstepping your... boundaries and peering into employees personal life and medical concerns. Focus on growth, stop practicing quick schemes to advance like purchasing your own products at stores so sales can appear to look better in order to reach quarterly goals.
