Seems like things haven’t changed, I worked for Estee Lauder in 2003 and the pay was $10.00 per hour without commission, plus you were required to meet your sales goals. You would get a verbal warning and then your final warning in about a 2 week period. It was all about numbers.
Training needed improvement as well.
I'm in KY and work for a retail company, Stage Stores: Peebles, Beals, Stage, Royal Palais & Goodys. I am a smaller store so, we just have one Lauder Counter Manager and one Clinique Counter Manager. We get paid $10.50 an hour (this is counting a raise we got before Christmas) and we get 3% commission. I know we are severely underpaid compared to most.
Depends on where you work and how much you ask for. I could've shot for higher pay, but I asked $13-15/hour. I make $14/hour plus commission, I work as a full-time beauty advisor.
