I worked at bareMinerals full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Some great co-workers, great clients. Excellent training. Decent gratis.

Cons

Low pay, constant changes in the schedule. Constant changes in management, usually for the worse. Relentless pressure to make sales quotas, items-per transactions quotas, average purchase quotas.

They wanted us to do high-pressure sales, which the cliental hated. The lighting was genuinely lousy so color-matching was difficult. But it was mostly the micro-managing that genuinely did not work. It focused so much on continuous pressure, that a great job became a lousy one.

Advice to Management

If you hire competent people, and pay them a decent wage, you will not have to micromanage. It takes away the sincerity of the person trying to help your client, and the client feels it.

    I have been working at bareMinerals part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved coming to work because of my co-workers. My bosses felt like my friends versus management. And even with the friendly levels, we still followed protocol and got our work done.

    Cons

    The higher ups in San Francisco were horrible about doling out the right information to their global stores. It was frustrating having to always read between the lines.

    Advice to Management

    Get your directives in order. Double check to make sure graphics are labled properly. Send out communications in a timely fashion. CERTIFY YOUR MAKEUP ARTISTS! DON'T JUST HIRE ANYONE OFF THE STREET LOOKING FOR A JOB!
