It was a call center.

It was a call center. It was fast paced and on the go. I was able to learn about makeup and was able to learn how to sell it. I also learned some new computer skills.

Dealing with clients in a upbeat envirenment makes working for Bare minerals a new expeirence every shift. Coworkers are friendly and the team always wants to grow individually & part of the company together.

Pros

Incentives

Cons

Fun job but not sustainable.

Working at Bare Escentuals was so much fun. I would talk about makeup and ask probing questions to suggest the appropriate products to the customer, and not trying to just shove product at them. I would also deal with providing instructions on how to best use the products as well as providing creative uses for them. For example the mineral powder can be used as a dry shampoo! I also dealt with billing concerns and returns and such. The culture in the office was so fun with contests and games like product bingo and potlucks. However, the pay and the benefits were not sustainable income, so I got a second job and ultimately left Bare Escentuals for the higher paying position.

Pros

Great work enviornment and employee discount!

Cons

Low pay and poor benefits

nice place to work. Loved the training this place had for employees. Stores were always a nice size.

Loved the training this place had for employees. Stores were always a nice size. Wish it was a commission based job. Store offered nice benefits for managers. Although I was for mangers it was a salary because there were times you could not get all your work done in a 40 hour week.

Productive fun working place

I liked working here..although more money would have made. It more worth my while. It was very slow paced work which in turn makes for a loooooong boring day you're standing in one spot putting makeup in boxes

Short breaks

Company issues

I was never able to keep a set consistent schedule, was always told I would get a certain amount of hours but would never receive. Very poor when it came to communicating with staff or employers.

Pros

did not work weekends

Cons

low pay rate for the work being done.

It is assembly work

I prefer not to comment. Its not a job i would reccomend to an experienced worker but would much rather be a better position for a student graduate from high school instead.

Not guaranteed hours

There would be days where I would get a whole days worth of hours and then some days we would get sent home after 2 hours because of no work. I'm the type where if you hire me to work I wanna work , not get sent home early

Exciting and challenging work place

The work environment could be said to be worker - friendly, so I always look forward to going to work.The management always communicate to the employee to notify them prior to introducing any change within the organization.I find every bit of the job interesting,exciting and challenging. Particularly, I enjoy sorting the products, tagging them with the right labels and ensuring they are kept in a safe place in the warehouse.

Pros

Free t- shirts, Parfums, Pizza

Cons

Some aspects of healthcare are not covered by insurance, Salary is not commensurate with services and hours put in.
