Getting clear skin with interesting personalities
Proactiv (Former Employee), Lancaster, PAAugust 19, 2014
I learned about skin breakouts and how to properly take care of it for all different skin types. I met so many nice people by education them on proper skin care. I maintained a relationship with customers and experienced watching their confidence grow. My co-workers were very hilarious and completely different from one another, but what was the same – more... was the attention each gave to a customer. – less

Going From the way Hickory Farms ran the company to American Kiosk style which was more interactive
Market Leader (Former Employee), Albany, NYMarch 27, 2014
Pros: company was very interactive with stores and communications at the store level.
Cons: amount of time to get perspective employees hired in the system.
This was the first year for American Kiosk running Hickory Farms label ..
Hiring and Training staff daily.
Hired people looking for a fun stress free environment for the holidays .They turned out for the most part to be great co-workers.
I had an Excellent Assistant running my top volume store .
Hiring people at the beginning of season was a struggle – more... , as I said AKM was new to this type of company (seasonal).
Most enjoyable part was working one on one with the staff training them . – less

Wonderful Surroundings
Team Member (Former Employee), Albuquerque, NMJuly 31, 2013
Pros: team meetings every sunday were great, the managers and team members would get together and do inventory together.
Cons: no lunch breaks
At AKM I learned it is very important to listen to the customers, make them feel you really do care about providing them with the best service. Let the customers feel that you are there to help and assist them with everything they need. Customers would also make me feel very great about myself just knowing that I helped them solve a big problem in there – more... life,and making the customer happy always made me feel happy. When I would wake up in a not so great mood, then I would go into work at AKM my whole day would turn around!! The customers and I would have conversations and at the end of the day the customer and I felt alot better. – less

Pros: great people, increible enviornmet, wonderful learning experrience
Cons: not having a very s\et schedule
Great co-workers everyone got along, a typical day at work for me was always a learning experience and great test. The hardest part was not having a set schedule, days changed and hours were never accurate. Management always had great hospitality.

Great Company to work for
Carl leader (Former Employee), Hayward, CAApril 2, 2013
Pros: great benefits, flexible schedule, and great environment
American Kiosk Management was all about the customers. The most important value I learned while working for them, was to appreciate each individual customer. It wasn't only about making a sale, but actually selling the product that each customer needed. Along with the sale, the customer had to be informed about the product. The most enjoyable part of – more... the job was the reaction a customer had when they saw actual results. I had a few customers who would go back to the kiosk to just say thank you. It made me feel like I was doing my job right. The hardest part of the job was to help customers out, who needed the product but couldn't afford it.
One of the things I learned while working at AKM was to be humble, to listen to the customer, and to build a relationship with them. Business is not only about making your numbers every month, just by selling your product to anyone, but to sell it to people who actually need it. Because these people gain trust in the product, they will come back, and will be part of a long term relationship with the company. – less

ProActiv (Former Employee), Fairfield CaliforniaNovember 6, 2012
I enjoyed working with this company. When I got to work I would check my registar to make sure the money was correct, and then would start helping customers with there skin care needs. I learned alot about skin care and how to upsell as well as talk to customers about sensitive topics such as acne. Management was very supportive and helpful they were – more... always there to answer any questions. – less

not a bad company to work for if you are an executive
corporate (Former Employee), las vegas nvSeptember 18, 2012
executives at corporate are over paid and they do not do enough most of them have no idea what they are doing and all the work ends up being done by the people that are paid the least you know things are bad when the VP doesn't know how to scan a document

Self Determination is Key
Retail Manager (Current Employee), Deptford, NJAugust 23, 2012
Pros: all the tools are there, just use them. if you are self determined and can manage your time well, this job is great.
Cons: you dont have much communication with upper management.
Classic retail store opening procedures, except, this isn't a store, its a small kiosk- and you are responsible for everything that incurs during a given shift. Complete opening procedures/paperwork(sales information, goals, yesterdays paperwork, schedule, time clock reports, etc) Check emails/reply. Clean and stock the kiosk. Customer service, customer – more... service, customer service! Selling a skincare product requires great judgement and use of words to use with guests since skin is a sensitive subject for most. Consult with customer to figure out their skin care needs, suggest and educate customers on the product. Demonstrate products, up sell, up sell, up sell. This is a very "goal" oriented environment. My direct supervisor is there when I need them, mostly through email correspondence, by telephone if necassary. Lot's of freedom since I work alone. I see another coworker for approximately 15 minutes of the work day, maximum 30 minutes if I need to update/discipline or role play different customer scenarios with them. I recruit, interview and hire all qualified employees. The hardest part of the job is finding reliable and responsible people who can handle working at a kiosk, and working alone without a manager breathing down their neck. The most enjoyable part of my job is the freedom I have of working alone and not being too stressed by an upper supervisor. – less

Great place to work if you enjoy working with the public
Team Member (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYAugust 9, 2012
Pros: working in the mall where i can shop
Cons: no one to cover my shift while i was on my break
My typical day of work was sitting as a kiosk sending emails, dust shelves and consulting with customers about Proactiv products. We never worked under the supervision of the cart manager. the hardest part of the job was depositing the money into the bank which wasnt around the corner. But the it had to be done everynight so i did it.

Educate customers about our product
Proactiv (Former Employee), North Charleston, SCMay 12, 2012
Pros: educating customers, making them feel good about our product, and how it can help their skin
Cons: doing the job of my cart manager
A typical day at Proactiv is opening up the cart, counting the cash drawer, checking emails, cleaning and restocking the shelves. Since working at Proactiv I've learned the different kinds of skin types to educate customers about our products and how it can help them. Management wasn't really effective. I basically play the role of manager of sending – more... emails, being on phone calls, depositing night cash deposits, and making up work schedules. I didn't have direct interactions with my co-workers because it was one person worked shift at the kiosk. The hardest part of the job would be taking up the slack of my Cart Manager and doing her job. The most enjoyable part of the job would be educating first time customers about the product and giving a demonstration of how it can help their skin. – less

Enjoyable career that builds team skills and constantly striving for success
Manager for Proactiv (Current Employee), Windsor, ONNovember 6, 2012
A typical day at work would involve managing my inventory. Inventory was done on a weekly basis. Making schedules and keeping employees up to date with current training. Bookkeeping and working on goal setting. We have weekly conference calls and I have to hold monthly meetings with my staff. Working with guests/customers and making them happy. My staff – more... is amazing and I am so lucky to have found my team. They are hard working and are eager to learn. My co-workers are extremely helpful and always are wanting to lend a helping hand. We call each other for advice or to compare results. The company is very encouraging and always have resources available for the staff to improve their skills. The most enjoyable part about the job would be that everyday I learn new skills that make me a better person and manager. I have learned more than I could have imagined about myself and how to be an asset to a company. This company was the perfect stepping stone for growth. – less
