Pros

Poor Management
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB20 April 2014
This job started off really well. I learned a lot about customer service and the product and how a salon runs. I had been at this job for eight months before one of the managers came back from maternity leave. Since then the store does not run smoothly, there is too much gossip, we never get the schedule on time and there is not much support from the manager. The rest of the team is great to work with, however the management is not.
Pros
Awesome co-workers and nice customers
Cons
Poor management

Great co-workers and product!
Sales Advisor (Former Employee) –  Vancouver BC, Victoria BC17 May 2013
For a retail job, Aveda is fantastic. During my time there, I worked at five locations in two cities. Management were respectful across the board. Although a "sales advisor" doesn't get great pay, it's equivalent to other retail positions and Aveda offers a better work environment and organizational culture than many other retailers; for example, it's a much more fun and easier retail choice than working in apparel.

Most Aveda customers are fine, but a lot are annoying and impatient. Great co-workers and discounts, however, compensate for that. When I worked at Aveda, the discounts and offers of free products changed frequently but were always fair.
Pros
Free and discounted product! Respectful managers and fun co-workers.
Cons
Annoying customers
