Education for products are amazing.
Cashier (Former Employee), Carson CityMay 30, 2014
Pros: lots of great samples
Cons: management, coworkers, no hours.
Shipment is grueling, for upcoming cosmetologist its a perfect job, for learning about different hair color, and products to help in there career. Not a good long term job.

Pros: free samples

It's an ok place to work, although no one knows what anyone else is ever doing. They don't train properly and they have so many rules it makes you laugh!

Productive Play
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Flint, MIMay 22, 2014
A typical day at Cosmoprof was very productive yet fun at the same time. All of the team members got along wonderfully. I met so many amazing people while working there for the past three years. I have learned so much, about the product, the customers, and my co workers.
I think that the hardest part of the job was keeping up the forever changing trends – more... and styles.
The best part about this job was meeting the people. I really enjoyed all of the amazing people that I got associate with on a day to day basis. – less

Fun place to work
Store Manager (Former Employee), Tampa, FLMay 5, 2014
Pros: discount and close to my home
Cons: i was by myself till i could hire someone to work with me.
The hardest part of this job was that I had to learn everything about hair color ,nail, hair types. This is not a the retail I had sold at before this is for professionals only. This is where they buy their supplies. Enjoyed my Supervisor and I learned a lot from her about the Beauty business. It was a small store and I could only have two employees. – more... So together we hard and made it the highest selling store in the District. Loved my team. – less

Great advancement, enjoyable travel and fun meetings.
Manager (Former Employee), Virginia Beach, VAMarch 26, 2014
Pros: movement up in the company, pay and benefits.
Cons: not the support of the company that was expected.
Making sure the store was open on time and ready for business as well as being well staffed for business. Learned that you have to be careful who you trust and that you don't get the support from certain aspects of the company that was expected. Enjoyed working with other management of the company, was there to help with questions or physical help when – more... needed. Some co-workers were well to work with as others not so, this will be in any or every type of business. Most enjoyable was the customers that asked for me by person and traveling out of town to the meetings to learn news things or products within the company. – less

Terrible and low pay
Sales Associate (Former Employee), North CarolinaMarch 21, 2014
Pros: discounts on store items
Cons: micromanaging manager, low pay for the work expected
Very low pay for the work, barely over minimum wage. They basically want maids who can also run a cash register. You are expected to clean constantly, I wasn't told the amount of cleaning expected when I accepted the position, and if I'd wanted to be a maid I could have worked for a cleaning company and gotten paid a lot more. My boss was very micromanaging, – more... overly demanding, and a drama queen - working for him was emotionally and physically draining. Tried complaining about him to upper management and that went nowhere - he had her ear and she had his back. The only enjoyable part of the job was the staff I originally started with, who started quitting one by one as the manager (who had only recently been made manager) drove us off one by one. I also liked a lot of the customers. Besides that I wouldn't wish a job at this company on my worst enemy. Terrible pay for the work they expect from you, and I've done everything over my lengthy work life from waitressing to secretarial to hairstyling. You get a 19 cent raise after 6 months, then not another raise for another year - which will be another 19 cents. Not even a cost of living raise. – less

Sales Associate
Retail sales Associate (Former Employee), Charleston, SCOctober 10, 2013
A typical day at Cosmoprof consists of running the registers, answering personal questions for Cosmetologists & students, stocking and cleaning the shelves as well as the store & managing a high trafficking store. The management is fairly different from the average sales associate. It's not so much of a leadership, but more of a do as I say or call – more... me when you need me environment. The co-workers were amazing as well as the customers. I really enjoyed working with them as well as learning plenty things as a Cosmetologists myself. There honestly was no moments where it was defined as hard. – less

order picker (Former Employee), spartanburg s.c.September 19, 2013
Pros: benefits
Cons: way to much overtime, not good job security, managers was rude, they lied about work, too much drama, very hot, did not appreciate its employees, no one stays there too long
Good place but alot of overtime. They don't care to much about you. The people from from the corporate office had to come alot because things was going so wrong there. They are unfair. People do not stay there long because of overtime and all the BS. Stressful job. Management don't know what they are doing.

Advancing in a company
Store Manager (Former Employee), Madison, WIJuly 18, 2013
Pros: learning the new and advanced part of the industry
A day would consist of greeting customers, selling products, inventory and training employees.
I learned how to manage people and increase sales on a monthly basis.
Would have liked to have management around the store more often.
Had a great team that worked well together.
Trading titles with a employee and keeping the tension down.
Working in the industry – more... that had training in was the best part of the job. – less

Good Environment, great staff, poor upper management
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), IowaJuly 12, 2013
Pros: free samples
Cons: corporate concern for gross margin makes store operations very difficult
Customers will not change since only licensed Cosmetologists are allowed to shop, which makes making the customer happy more important than ever- lose a customer and you don't lose one sale- you lose A LOT. That being said, the register systems are incredibly out of date, and upper management is too concerned with gross margin and under-staffing seems – more... to be very common. Making the customer happy is not simple when you must memorize a new 75 page add every month since the computers won't ring half of the sales in (which is obviously your fault to the customers). Customers in my area were very understanding that we were not to blame but that "corporate" wasn't going to do anything to help them either. – less

average pay, good h/c benefits
Store Manager (Former Employee), Stillwater, MNMay 30, 2013
I started as an assistant manager and within a year was promoted to manager. The salary is laughable, but I thought my District Manager was great and I liked my staff of 3. I left the company because i moved out of state.
