Not a good company to work for, Issues with management
Beauty Ambassador (Current Employee), Dallas, TXMarch 11, 2014
Pros: discounts, team selling atmosphere.
Cons: minimal hours, scheduling, management, policies, rate of pay
I work in a very poorly run location. There is no effective means of communication, and company policies are implemented and ignored at will. Issues with management are common, as there is rarely any tact in the way employee's are treated and spoken to. Work is also not divided evenly, or fairly divided among employees and management. The company promotes – more... a culture centered around a, 'girlfriend experience' but that is rarely the case within the store. You will rarely receive more than 12 hours weekly, and scheduling requests are frequently ignored by management. I strongly believe this is just at my location, as we have a revolving door of turn-over's. Overall I would say go the department store route if you're interested in cosmetics. – less

Over five years with the company and a great company it is!
ASSISTANT STORE MANAGER (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAFebruary 19, 2014
Every day was a pleasure at both of the Bare Escentuals stores I worked at. I learned everything I know about makeup and beauty from this company, but more than that I enjoyed the one-on-one customer interactions I had on the job every single day.

It was very special to talk and bond with other women at the makeup counter after a long day at school – more... and I enjoyed doing make unders and seeing how pleased my customers were with the product and the results....

My coworkers were amazing and I enjoyed training new employees and also working with other managers and district managers throughout my time with Bare Escentuals. – less

Company stands by their values and great way to get into the Make-Up industry.
Boutique Manager (Current Employee), Roseville, MNFebruary 9, 2014
I work with my team to achieve the ultimate goal of making plan. I coach my team in a positive manner, setting realistic goals to meet. I believe that work should be fun, yet you should work hard. I create an environment where clients want to come into the store and employees want to work. I have learned how to manage a successful team. Moreover, I – more... have learned how to coach employees individually, keeping in mind that every person is different. My team is passionate about the company and the product. Everyone works hard but creates long lasting relationships with their clients. The best part of the job is watching my employees grow within the company and becoming more comfortable in their role. Seeing a team member celebrate because they had a great sale and client interaction is very rewarding. The hardest part of the job is leaving my job at the door when I leave for the day. I want my team and store to achieve our goals set for us. When I am away from the store, I have to keep in mind that my store is running smoothly and I have hired the right staff to control the business. – less

Very disorganized and horrible leadership
sales associate (Former Employee), Chandler, AZFebruary 6, 2014
Pros: training was always awesome from our district trainer
Cons: leadership, changes, out of stock, integrity from managers, negativity, no hours or hours you can't work.
Working for this company was very challenging. The company talks about the " Girlfriend experience" however the District Manager and managers do not really give that. It was a negative and horrible place to come to work every day. I watched as managers would make employees adjust their time cards when they were late, come in to store with no makeup. – more... The District manager would do nothing. there are so many changes in people and leadership in corporate office which than the stores get very inconsistent direction. There seems to be people in management positions that are not qualified. I would recommend working in a department store if you want to work for a professional atmosphere in cosmetics. – less

Bare Minerals is one of the best companies i've worked for
BEAUTY AMBASSADOR (Current Employee), Short Hills, NJJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: gratis, makeup certification classes
Cons: not enough hours
My typical day at Bare Minerals would be starting with my daily task which consist of Cleaning, restocking and replenishing the store and following up with management on the store plans and goals we have for the week. what I've learned from working with Bare minerals is the importance of customer service and how important it is for the customer feel – more... valued. Working with managament along with my Co-workers was always a pleasure we all worked together as a team when it came to reaching our store goals and doing thr store set ups. The hardest part about working for Bare Minerals would be in the slow periods when we would have a high goal set and trying to reach it. The most enjoyable Part of working for Bare Minerals would be the transformation process with our clients that would come in and leave out feeling beautiful and feeling more confident about there apperance. – less

This job was satisfactory for me but it was temporary
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee), Hayward, CAJanuary 7, 2014
Pros: every day, i had new experiences with my job
Cons: unfortunately the job was temporary
packing, locating label to the products, setting boxes in pallets, and wrapping the pallets to be sent to other countries.
I learned to use manual pallet jacket and wrapping manually and into a machine.
I could work independently.
I had good relations with my co-workers
I didn't feel that my tasks were hard.
there was good relations among the co-workers – more... and that contributed to get the goals wanted by my supervisor – less

Loved this job..and loved taking care of the customers, making them beautiful was an added plus! Loved making them happy and feel better about themselves.

Terrible place to work
Key holder (Former Employee), Cherry CreekDecember 28, 2013
Pros: customers are loyal
Cons: management
Worked there for 2 years in Cherry Creek. The management (store & district) were awful. We had 3 store managers within the time I was there (several months without a store manager). The customers were great. Lack of education and team work. I literally walked out during a shift.

Not a postive atmosphere
Beauty Amassador (Former Employee), Orlando, FLNovember 4, 2013
Pros: products are amazing and in store culture is like a family
Cons: no career opportunities
Upper management did not encourage career growth.
I did learn different selling techniques and make up applications.
Co-workers were like family they created a friendly environment. However the structure of the company does not promote teamwork. I think the product is amazing and speaks for itself.
