    Pros

    The discount is great on L'Oréal brands. Gratis is always good, even if you have already purchased items prior to receiving. Great product at a unbelievable price.

    Cons

    The employees and management need to be babysat. Very young teams that do not understand what having a work ethic is. Last second changes makes it very difficult to maintain a work life balance. Not enough rules, too much grey area. No actual training for employees, just no structure within the company. Lack of payroll hours. Poor planing in general.

    I worked at NYX Cosmetics part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There's great product discounts off all L'Oréal brands! It's a fairly fun environment getting to play with makeup and talking to customers all day. Customers are very appreciative of your help most of the time. You get paid sick hours. Most of the time they can try to work around your schedule for school or a trip if you are part time.

    Cons

    Extremely poor communication with management and especially corporate. Poor training that is way over due and doesn't cover things like sick pay, leave of absence, the "housework" type things. It mainly only covers product and how to talk to customers which leaves employees in the dark about their benefits. The schedule is a mess. It was actually unlawful how late they would give us our weekly schedule. This left no room for work life balance and ultimately makes people call out constantly leaving those who are working way over worked. They could never seem to get it to you more than a couple of days in advance. I have worked multiple retail jobs and it has never been as big of an issue as it is here. There is very little opportunity for growth despite what everyone is told when they are hired here. They are not really an artistry based brand. They discourage full face applications and spending too much time doing makeup applications which was hugely disappointing for me. They focus more on social media stars and a "being your own artist" type of thing. Management stays in the back room most of the time.
