    I worked at Lancome full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved my coworkers. I loved my job. Gratis. Product knowledge

    Cons

    Low hourly base rate.
    I had a beauty advisor job to get me through beauty school. Once I graduated, I found a great job with higher pay. Around the same time we I was going to put in my two weeks we were in pre-sale for an event that we were having on launching a new product. Even though I was leaving I still worked my behind to produce awesome numbers before I left. My pre-sales alone were around $2,000. Once I put in my two weeks I let my area manager know. She wasn't to happy to hear the news. At the the time I was one of the top beauty advisors in sales..She threatened me saying this Industry is too small & if I left she'd be sure to it that I never return & that no one would hire me if I ever wanted to come back. I should have gone to HR. But at that time I thought in just a few more days I'll be gone and never have to deal with her again!

    Advice to Management

    Don't threaten employees
