    Pros

    Gratis sometimes (don't expect this as something you will always receive). Flexible schedule , fun atmosphere , great GM,and support managers.

    Cons

    DM not very supportive or understanding , very critical DM and RM. Always cutting payroll, no incentives for part-time employees, unreasonable amount of tasks for the amount of employees on any given day. Could be an amazing place to work with the right amount of staff to complete daily tasks.

    Advice to Management

    None, their hand are tied with corporate always cutting hours. Managers are not empowered to reward part time employees with gratis for outstanding sales or extra work effort.

    Pros

    Learning about brands, see new makeup first

    Cons

    No organized training, not enough gratis, take advantage of hard workers, people with no makeup experience have the same jobs as people with extensive experience, upper management sees you as $ and disposable, no recognition for achievements

    Advice to Management

    Care more, give more gratis, train more, distinguish knowledge levels of employees,
