    Pros

    If you seek a career in which you can stretch your skill set to its maximum potential and grow professionally, then apply for a position at Xtreme Lashes! I have experienced exponential growth both professionally and personally through my various positions at Xtreme over the last 11 years. I can honestly say I have used all of the professional strengths and improved upon my professional weaknesses here because of the...

    Cons

    • Small office space and parking lot • Many staff members wear “multiple hats”—the growth of the Company is often times faster than the growth of its workforce!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work, especially the way you show care and concern for your Direct Reports!

    Pros

    Company management truly cares about the success of the company and their employees. Very open door policy. If employees give their best, company rewards them by giving all they can.

    Cons

    They have lengthy meetings, but I believe this is because as with many younger companies the CEO and Management want to ensure everything is going in the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and keep caring about your employees.

    I worked at Xtreme Lashes full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people you work with become your friends. Long hours, long meetings, and long project timelines helps create a close bond.

    Cons

    No work life balance. There is such a high turnover. They fire people constantly. The office is dirty and upper management is very unprofessional. Projects never get completed. They have you test products over and over again for no reason. They don’t care for your opinions. Everybody is always on edge. I dreaded going in everyday I worked there.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your team. You hired them to do a job. Don’t have such long meetings that last 6+ hours. Clean the offices regularly.

    Pros

    People are nice & willing to help you learn what you want / need to learn - it’s a good place for interns. Free snacks?

    Cons

    Low morale, negative energy. Micromanaging at its finest! Management is involved in everything and doesn’t trust employees to do their job - which they were hired for in the first place. Everyond thinks they know everything even if they don’t work in your department. Lack of trust - again, employees don’t do the job they’re hired to do in the first place. Lack of respect and sense of time - meetings constantly...

    Many reviews on here have been essentially the same, things are still the same. ADVICE TO FUTURE / POTENTIAL EMPLOYEES? they seem nice at first glance but once you get into the work itself it’s stressful. know your worth professionally because there’s a lot of opportunities out there. I would also trust the reviews, but don’t be fooled by the ones with 5 stars because they do ask employees internally to write good...

    Pros

    Free snacks I am unable to find anything else good to say about this company

    Cons

    Toxic, backstabbing and belittling. Upper Management is involved in EVERYTHING except learning how to treat employees with dignity and class. The pay was really good but upper management creates schemes and ways to deduct commission. You work so hard because the sales team is always undermanned but it’s often over looked by management tearing you down because you couldn’t make 300 outgoing calls per month. My advice...

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging and trying to find ways to get work done for free. By doing so perhaps the turn around wouldn’t be so high.

    Pros

    Xtreme Lashes is one of the best places I have worked at. The office culture is friendly, encouraging, and open. Blame for mistakes is replaced by how to avoid this in the future. Trouble with co-workers or superiors is resolved quickly, sometimes by Jo herself who will spend hours on the phone with you if you have a problem with someone. This company is growing fast and you will always have your plate full of...

    Cons

    Very fast growth is a good thing, but has caused staff to be overwhelmed at times with all the projects.

    Cons

    - The fast pace of work combined with the ever-changing nature of the beauty industry means that staying ahead of the curve can lead to some long work hours and a large workload. If you're looking for a leisurely pace of work - look elsewhere. But if you're a hustler and you find value in seeing a project through to completion - then you will fit right in.

    Pros

    This company has offered me lots of growth potential. I came in as a brand manager, more focused on print and TV and have been given the opportunity to develop strong skills in digital marketing. The CEO, Jo Mousselli, invests a lot in technology and software and challenges employees to grow beyond their comfort zone to bring projects to the next level. She cares about her employees and even provided financial support...

    Cons

    We're dealing with short staffing, which increases the workload for the team. The company is working on hiring more people, but it is not easy to find people with experience in the beauty industry. Houston is bigger in oil&gas / medical.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on hiring more people, so we can get new projects over the finish line

    Pros

    I love my career at Xtreme Lashes. I literally started at the bottom and worked my way up to where I am now and, even in my old position here I still loved every minute! I had to work very hard and prove myself to get where I am now with this company but, it's all paying off. We have a great profit sharing bonus program for each quarter of the year. It is a real moral booster to see a little something extra on your...

    I'm not really one to complain because I feel so blessed to work with such great people. No complaints here!

    Advice to Management

    Some might say that they felt micromanaged during their time here at XL but, in my opinion, I couldn't feel more differently. The C-Level staff is there at many meetings and, it makes me feel as if my voice is heard. It isn't just a feeling either. So many times I have spoken up to give my opinion on a matter and changed the direction of a project. There is no better feeling in the workplace than to be heard. So I guess...

    Cons

    Micromanagement Low pay Artificial company culture Lying to secure new hires

    Advice to Management

    Pay more if you’re going to put your employees through “optional” meetings that waste time. Don’t lie to new hires about having to work weekends in the interview as being occasional when you schedule them routinely. If you’re going to have real-time updates on employee output, make sure to compensate those who deserve it. Concentrate less on your head in the clouds company “culture” and more on running your business....
