Was Amazing
Beauty Advisor (Former Employee), CaliforniaJanuary 7, 2013
Pros: nice bonuses
Cons: heathcare
It was a great company then the polices changed. You work in a Target store and help with beauty products, loved helping people find what they needed but got to the point where it was not about the customer but more about the money.

Some issues with communication between Target and Boots
Beauty Advisor (Current Employee), Mount Kisco, NYSeptember 11, 2012
Pros: wonderful products, easy to sell
Cons: working every sunday not enough control of my stock orders
I arrive hoping to find that the tasks that are required by Target team members are carried out. It do have to rely on others to order and stock the product .That is the most difficult area ,I am always running out of product and the time between arrivals of product is too long.I do love working with my guests and I have strong costumer service qualifications. – more... Interacting with the guest and making a person feel better is the best part of my day. – less

Great feeling to brighten someones day with color
Beauty Advisor Representive (Former Employee), Stamford, CTJuly 22, 2012
Pros: independent self motivated in store on site beauty advisor
Cons: less sales less hours less work.
The hardest part for me would be the ecconomy, when it got slow the sales were more difficult to reach the required goals, decreased sales, decreased hours. I really enjoyed my work, interacting with people it was exciting to brighten up someones day with a mini make over, new nail color or advice to help them with any issues or concernes they may have – more... about health or beauty, I learned so much information about skin care applications, products, vitamins, plant extracts and how they are important and vital to our health. Feed back from other Beauty Advisors advice incuragement and support is very important. Management insured we were well infrormed with classes, meetings, and ready to support the brand of BOOTS USA, INC. – less

Be prepared to supply your own materials if you work for this company....
Beauty Advisor (Former Employee), Wellington FloridaJanuary 17, 2012
Pros: little or no supervision
Cons: you have to clock out for a half hour break, regardless if you want one or not, if you finally acheive your monthly goal, the next month is higher
I was quite surprised when I actually interviewed for the beauty advisor position that I would be working in an aisle at Target. I found this to be a challenge and what a challenge it was. You not only have to deal with rude Target employees that make minimum wage, and are reluctant to help or do product research so you have product to sell, because – more... of the daily, weekly and monthly goals you have to make, you do not get much support from the management of Boots either. Many times I brought issues to my superiors, but I was left to fend for myself most of the time. I had to get and pay for my own supplies like a table to do weekly events, tape, scissors, white out, or yes even my own client book was supplied by me. Christmas was a joke, you can go to the Dollar store for bags and tissue paper, I think not. I spent over $40.00 of my own money making a basket for the Susan Komen event I did in October, did I get any compensation of course not it was expected. They are just like every other cosmetic company and I have worked for a few just with a different cover. I am really not bitter more relieved that I am no longer employed at this company. I made a boo-boo I clocked out from my cell-phone, but I could never get to a Target phone without either an evil eye or feeling of dispar from the employees. Oh yes, if you go to another store because they say you may have to do this beware they do not pay milage, but make other promises that they do not keep. Like I was promised a commission from I store that I traveled almost an hour to get too. So if you think the grass is greener on the other side....please think again. – less
