Be prepared to supply your own materials if you work for this company....
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 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.
