    Pros

    Small business, Ideas welcomed, discount on product

    Cons

    small business, lack of structure, Company has no financial support to back the products they distribute which in turn affects your pay when part of your livelihood is commission.

    Advice to Management

    don't carry a line you can't adequately represent. hire more staff. create a structured guide for employees to follow as majority of the time warehouse staff is non existent or employees being clueless. Train your people. Trust your people. You hired us- if you can't trust us that doesn't say much about your character either. You are the only one holding your business back from growing and sometimes it takes money to make money.

    Pros

    Working with clients, products and educators was fun and rewarding. Was busy all the time, steady hours and steady income.

    Cons

    No support, no direction, and lots of blame shifting. It's a family business so anyone close to them is fine, if you are an outsider there are grown men who gossip behind your back. Product on store shelves was old and sometimes used.

    Advice to Management

    Don't cut corners, train your staff, and be aware that you are not the only business that is selling to cosmetologists. If you want to stand out, you have to be different.
