Pros

Easier to leave job because positions are filled through agency.

Cons

Highly repetitious and in most cases very hard work. Employees are often pressured to work faster than physically possible, if not you get yelled at. Main supervisor of long standing only lives to yell and put employees down, has made employees cry in numerous circumstances. Very difficult to communicate if you don't know Spanish. Jobs are only available through agency with little to no benefits.

Advice to Management

Get a different supervisor that actually does her job instead of just yelling employees and does not destroy employee moral, and have more reasonable standards of what a production employee can physically do.

    Pros

    Management leave you alone (sometimes) and you get to work with other employees who are equally as frustrated as you are. But when you are surrounded by other employees who have great personalities, the job can be fun.

    Cons

    I worked here as a sales associate selling basic cosmetics for approximately 4-5 months. The training itself was very helpful - I learned a lot of information that I needed to know in order to sell the product. One day was dedicated to training, another dedicated to having an experience manager with you on the job so you can shadow her, and learning from other employees. But overall this was a horrible experience because this Shiseido chain located all over New York and New Jersey is called "Damoa Shiseido" and the owner is quite honestly, horrible. She treats employees like slaves and hovers over them all the time. The pay is lousy and the amount of mental harassment I received from the owner was not worth the trouble of holding onto this job.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like people - not slaves. The owner herself should stop harassing the employees and give them benefits, offer them a more realistically attainable rewards and recognition system. The owner was not Shoji Takahashi - who is the owner of the entire brand. This review is in regards to the particular chain located in a particular region of the United States.
