    I worked at Xtreme Lashes

    Pros

    Opportunity to work in several position that you have absolutely no experience in.

    Cons

    The Owner expects you to devote your every waking moment to the company. She likes to have 6 hour long meetings that often go until 10:00 at night, with nothing actually accomplished in the end. The company does not promote from within. Instead, it hires highly experienced professionals from outside the company, and then pays them way under market value. There is no training program at all. They company just throws...

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

    Pros

    The office is very flexible you can pretty much do whatever you want as long as your core responsibilities are finished. If you like to have freedom over your day it's a pretty good fit. They do expect a lot but you will often find people mingling outside smoking and chatting for hours on end.

    Cons

    The leadership team is completely confused on their responsibilities. You will often find the Marketing Director listening in on HR meetings and the HR Director being asked to go grocery shopping. Everyone is pretty much there as a yes man to the CEO whatever she wants is what gets done. The only problem is she may change her mind several times within one meeting. Meetings typically run about 3 hours each. Also...

    I have been working at Xtreme Lashes full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Jo Mousselli, the Co-Founder, President, and CEO, promotes a company culture that rewards both individual strength and collaborative Team strengths. Xtreme provides a unique opportunity to work in an internationally recognized Company where the CEO actually makes time to get to know her Team Members and the employees are encouraged to maximize their skills and creativity in their job roles. We work hard to provide legendary...

    Cons

    Before applying for a job at Xtreme, consider that we are experiencing explosive growth in our market and keep in mind that you must be flexible, adapatable, open-minded, and ready to hit the ground running. If you are looking for a traditional corporate environment in which you will follow the same boring routine and punch the time clock at 9 and 5, Xtreme would not be a good fit for you.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the amazing opportunities that I have had to use the majority of my knowledge and skills. Please keep working on our new location for the corporate headquarters. We have been growing and adding new staff members and it will be awesome when we get to move into the new building.

    I have been working at Xtreme Lashes full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I haven't been working for Xtreme Lashes long but I'm so happy that I got the opportunity to be apart of such a wonderful team. It's nice working for a company that actually values your thoughts and opinions. The overall atmosphere of the office is the best part. Everyone is always so helpful and in such an uplifting and positive mood. Upper management takes the time to recognize you and set up meetings and fun outings...

    Cons

    As with any job in customer service you have to deal with some difficult clients. Working with such a great team though its nice to be able to laugh off the anger.

    Advice to Management

    I think everyone is doing a wonderful job here. I couldn't ask for anything else and I'm not just saying this either. This is absolutely hands down the best company I have worked for. I just love the vibe I get from everyone! I feel like I'm actually part of a team!

    Pros

    You've heard the phrase "home away from home", well, that is exactly what this company has been for me, a home. From the work environment to its people to management to their products, everything about this company I love. The benefits are good, the work experience is pleasant, the atmosphere is relaxed, and the opportunities for growth are there if you put the effort forth to reach and grab them. Being in the...

    Cons

    The pros are far more than the cons and like with any company, people cannot always have everything they want. You make of life and your job what you make of them and what you give you do always get in the same measure.

    I have been working at Xtreme Lashes full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I’ve been with Xtreme Lashes for over seven years now. One big thing I've noticed is that while they are always on the hunt for talent, more times than not a position is filled by promoting existing employees to the next level. This is great news if you’re looking to build a career or beef up your resume. On top of that there are many projects always in play. A wide assortment of roles from high to low are allowed...

    Cons

    Unfortunately due to the depth and quantity of projects, things can get hectic at times. This might be a pro or con to you depending on how you look at it. Honestly I don’t think it’s any different than other places I’ve worked, but you shouldn't go in with a lackadaisical attitude expecting a sit down 9 to 5 with no expectations placed on you. I think this is the key differentiator between those who post a positive or...

    Cons

    There is a strong bias to not release ANY new product or training program until it is absolutely at 100%. This sometimes causes the product development cycle to take too long. It can be frustrating for the PD team, the Marketing team and the Training Dept., but this attention to quality and customer satisfaction has served us well over the years. Also, we are currently implementing a new ERP system, which has created...

    Pros

    There are many good people working at Xtreme.

    Cons

    This company is disorganized and chaotic at all times, everything is an emergency and last minute. The pay does not equal the amount of time you work nor your title you are given.

    Pros

    we finally have 401 k benefits, salary staff get a free paid day of they clock in their hours, good product discount sometimes you get to be a model for the lash extensions

    Cons

    I was not taught to keep my thoughts to myself if I had nothing good to say. This office takes advantage of its staff ruthlessly and coldly. If you like working with people who constantly complain and bad mouth the management and family owners but are powerless to instill change, then by all means come join the fun! I was told by an employee that this was not a professional place, and boy was that person right. People...
