I love working for Aveda. The company truly does love their employees and gives them gratis for new products and really wants you to love the products. Which, I really do love the products. However, as an advisor, there is nowhere for me to go. Because of how the chain of management works, I'm unable to move up into the assistant manager position because I have no management experience and my lead won't move up into the assistant position. Because I'm only an advisor I don't get full time or benefits (even though I'm actually working around 35 hours per week). To me, they are taking advantage of my time without giving me PTO/Sick time or insurance. Also, they say they aren't commision based, but your bonus is highly dependant on your sales goals which can be hundreds of dollars added on, but when it comes to returns its all about "the team numbers". All and all, if you want to be amazing at retail then Aveda offers excellent training, but it really is "commissioned based" even though they say its not.
