I have been working at Bare Escentuals part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Gratis, and half the time the product being given does not match every skin

Cons

Managers & Assistant Managers get awards $500-$1000 bonuses for making plan, employees get $20-$30
Managers putting their work on key holders and BA's constantly

Advice to Management

Start hiring from within, hire the people who are familiar with the product and metrics, instead of hiring others that have to be taught. You hire others at higher wages, and expect people who are making half of that to train them? Start treating employees with respect and stop over staffing the stores if no one is even walking in the stores. Get people in the stores! Don't rely on us. Stop hiring unexperienced BMs & ABMs. Some of them get hired at $27 an hour & you expect someone who makes $12 an hour to help train them? Respect your employees. Do you treat your girlfriends like trash? How do you expect us to give the girlfriend experience if you treat us like shit? Girlfriend experience my ass.The quality of your product is going down. Lets take ready for example. If you're darker than a person of Indian decent you can't wear ready . In all of the ready signs, not a single one features an African American. In the loose powder every dark or deep shade is either or ashy. How do you expect to drive sales if you can't even cater to every skin tone and type? Maybe Leslie stepped down cause she did not want to be blamed for the poor leadership of corporate.

    Pros

    The product is amazing. The customers are great.

    Cons

    The management is awful. If you are 1 minute late you will be written up. If your outfit isn't to their liking you will be be written up. You will do all the cleaning. The store manager doesn't clean at all. They are very strict. We had management change and about 10 employees quit.
