I have been working at Bare Escentuals full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

great discount
good pay
nice bonus incentives
gratis
amazing products

Cons

micromanagement
unappreciated
how can your store be effective if you have to absorb your own PTO hours offered by the company??
attendance policy is way out of line
focus on the ADS!!forget converting more lookers into buyers. They say it's about the service you deliver, but controlling ADS is not as productive as controling your UPT and conversion.
As a store manager you have no say in nothing.every little thing has to be approved. their payroll is terrible for stores, it's not effective at all.
It could be better if had a DM that wasn't so mean and would actually give you touch bases like she should, give other feedback than just NEGATIVES!
company's technologies are out dated and they should consider being less greety with their promotions and actually offer deals that encourage clients to spend

Advice to Management

less micromanagement, more appreciation,actually give reviews like mentioned in the handbook.Be more supportive, and stop barking at us when we have questions.

    I worked at Bare Escentuals full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Bare Escentuals has great products!

    Cons

    The company changed after they were bought out. This company does not care about their employees, its all about getting the most $$ out of your clients pockets.

    Advice to Management

    Your staff should be more than just a name on a piece of paper...this company thinks of their staff as very replaceable.
