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.

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.

Great place to work. Great staff and management. Bare Minerals is a great atmosphere where you work with various clients of all ages and races to get their desired beauty and skin care regimen. Greatest part is working with customers to help them find the product that work for them while enhancing your skills.

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.

key holder (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NVOctober 3, 2014
We get to work with make-up all day...I think that says it all. I feel lucky that I get to go to work every day helping women incorporate creativity and beauty into their every day regimen. At my Bare Mineral store we are all very connected, we welcome newcomers to the team like we welcome new family members; this has been such a refreshing environment to walk into everyday.
I have learned a great deal working here, everything from improving my management skills to building up my artistry skills.

Key Holder/Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Chandler, AZAugust 6, 2014
Bare is a great company. The management is fantastic at working with school schedules and other "issues" in life that might come up. It is essential that you cover most tattoo's (at least when I worked there). I do wish they focused on more artistry skills and advancement with that. Holiday time around Bare is fun! The training department is always a joy!

Beauty expert (Former Employee), LAJuly 17, 2014
Sales can be rewarding. I didn't feel that it was the right "culture" for me. You need to be comfortable being up close and personal with people. I got sick a lot constantly touching peoples faces and hands. We were taught to be extremely clean with our brushes and such but not everyone who came into the store gave us the same consideration. Germs.... As a whole its still retail and retail sucks!
