Productive, fast paced, fun place to work
Lead Sales Aesthetician (Current Employee) –  Riverside, CAApril 26, 2018
I love my job @ Benefit. It can be very fast paced and a lot of pressure. You def have to get on everyone's good side to advance. So if you're in a location that's not so busy, goodluck. But they really love their employees. Just have to meet your numbers whether you have the business or not to advance there.
Pros
Hour lunch, birthday cards, gratis, etc
Cons
Nit picky attitudes from management, not enough guidance with events

Counter Manager FT (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, CAJanuary 18, 2018
Working for Benefit Cosmetics was a wonderful experience. The staff and Coordinator for the company had your career in their best interest. Everyday I learned something new where I was motivated to advance a lot faster than most places. How could you not when you were provided with the tools to help you be the best. Above all the one one one involvement with the clients was organic and not like a "car salesman".
Pros
Classes, Cosmetic Gratis, Meetings and hands on experience
Cons
none

Fun cosmetics company!
Esthetician/Makeup Artist (Former Employee) –  Bakersfield, CAJanuary 11, 2018
Benefit cosmetics itself is a fun company always learning paid trips for product knowledge and out of town events. Esthetics always productive in sales and services offered. Downfall was the Executive. Not a "personality" for the Laughter is the Best Cosmetic. Very hostile hard to please when goals are met and not. Never satisfied. Not professionally as all. Reason why I left. No Human Reaources available for employees to report to. Complaints are NOT KEEP CONFIDENTIAL!!!
Pros
The company itself was great, products and services.
Cons
Lack of Human Resources to report. Executive management, very unprofessional. Cut throat, Hostile personality.

Beauty Advisor (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXDecember 28, 2017
Overall I had an ok experience working for benefit cosmetics, I was in a Macy’s where they also had a brow bar to have many services available for clients. Sadly it was a con to have it and spend all day ringing up services where you would not get any comision for. So you would ring up service after service and it was basically up to us to sell them everything even though the estee had the client with them for a solid 20 minutes. Reason I left company was because I didn’t see myself growing, I felt all I did was ring up services and never make comision sells for my hard work. And also because benefit is not a well know brand, you are competing with brands like Anastasia with amazing brow products that clearly win over any client who watches YouTube
Pros
Gratis
Cons
Ringing up estee clients no sells

You take a lot of phone calls and answer a lot of questions this is a really nice fast paced environment. You will get an opportunity to learn a lot while working here about the medical benefits people receive.

great job for the right person
Esthetician (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 4, 2017
the description and the roll are two different things. You are only doing facial waxing and body waxing so if you are looking to be creative and constantly learn about the industry this is not the job for you.
Pros
pay and waxing expierence
Cons
not a team player environment
