Good Company, High Turn Around
Key Holder (Former Employee), King of Prussia, PAMay 18, 2015
Pros: very friendly company, good perks
Cons: overworked, never had a full staff
The company as a whole was great. That being said, it is majorly part time employees. There is a very high employee turn around and because of that, much of the time there was not a full staff.

If STORE MANAGER IS HORRIBLE... so will be your EXPERIENCE!
Beauty Ambass. (Former Employee), Trumbull, CTMay 5, 2015
Pros: Gratis, Bootcamp training and other amazing BA's who feel love the industry!
Cons: HOURS!(lack of), MANAGEMENT!!
I worked at one in CT and the store manager was not only unethical but didn't even have any prior skin or cosmetic experience. Needless to say that she sat in the back room on the phone with another store manager all thru out her shift talking about her cat and men she met online! She makes up her own rules and makes it an uninviting place to work. She is NOT a team player and gives you hours based on if you are her "favorite". The assistant store manager and key holder have not only more experience and professionalism, but a strong passion for their job. Sadly, for many people this IS a career choice and when the store manager is playing games with your hours it is not a reliable position.The product is amazing BUT if the management is bad its all bad!!!! The other BA's you work with and meet are very nice and share the same passion. I learned just how important it is to have a manager who doesn't micro manage and isn't inexperienced!!

Beauty Ambassador Role
Beauty Ambassador (Current Employee), west MidlandsMay 1, 2015
Really exciting position if you are young and determined. You do get dropped in at the deep end, however i found this helped me to learn quicker. Building relationship with customers and the staff discount is amazing. Yet there is a lot of pressure to meet targets etc.
Good incentives and lovely co-workers.

They really care about their clients.
Assistant Boutique Manager (Current Employee), Garden City, NYMarch 31, 2015
Been with this company for 6 year. They have truly evolved in those 6 years and ways to stay with makeup trends without losing the integrity of the product. Typical work day is to make connections and lasting relationships with the clients. As a manager you are held to the same task as the Beauty Advisor in addition to day to day operational duties and growing the business.

Beware
'beauty ambassdaor' (Former Employee), west midlandsFebruary 24, 2015
Pros: allocation.
Cons: high pressure sales, zero support in role and no progression, not paid for lunch, retail hours etc
I would absolutely N O T recommend working for this brand.

However, in addition to this it is low paid, the retail hours are very unsociable, there is hardly any room to progress other than the possibility of one day becoming business manager, which also doesn't pay well. I could go on....

Manager/Makeup Artist (Current Employee), Costa Mesa, CAFebruary 4, 2015
Pros: our event calendar is always full so there is always work to be done
Cons: busyness of the day leads to short breaks; being on my feet all day
At Bare Minerals the main focus is to be force of beauty.

My co-workers and I aim to make a positive difference in the lives of all the women (and Men) that we come into contact with. I've really learned the importance of carrying a genuine and honest spirit in order to cultivate long lasting relationships.

The most enjoyable part of the job is my day to day interactions with my team. The energy and strong relationships we build amongst each other is amazing.

Very fun place to work, comforting coworkers who really care about you.
Beauty Advisor (Current Employee), Houston, txJanuary 8, 2015
Pros: makeup gratis, fun boot camps
Cons: part time only job. can't get many hours a week
This has been a very well experience for me to work at a place that I had no experience with. I had no idea how to apply makeup, or anything about their product. I have came to learn a lot from this company. Everyone is a great help, and managers are very comforting people. Everyone always tends to be there when ever you need to talk about anything with.

Beauty Advisor/Sales Associate (Former Employee), Tacoma, WAOctober 15, 2014
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.
