Pros: enjoyable work environment with cosmetic perks or gratis
Cons: filling a shift when someone calls out sick, i would always get asked because management knew that i would help in that way
A typical day at work would be:
to prepare for sales and application techniques of the cosmetic retail products. As a beauty ambassador supplying the customers with valid reasons why a specific item would work for them allowed me to meet my daily sales goals. Building relationships with clients and coworkers provided a cohesive work environment.
I learned that in the beauty industry cosmetics and skin care are always appreciated by those who want to give back to themselves, for self gratification, to build ones self esteem, and just because they enjoy the product and what it does for them.
The management staff was very personable and helpful. The coworkers were also helpful and whenever new employees were hired we all were still very cohesive and welcoming of the new team member.
The hardest part of the job was when coworkers would call out sick. I did not mind coming in to work to fill a shift, but it did take away from scheduled family events.
The most enjoyable part of the job was that I had the ability to use and share my artistic artistry, and learn from the other beauty ambassadors about artistry technique and sales strategies.
