Pros: Rate of pay, lots of shifts/hours, happy positive work place.
Cons: Standing for long hours.
I worked for benefit when I was 17 over the Christmas period I can say it was the best first job I ever had!
Typical day on the job would consist of restocking the counter, reporting low stock levels to counter manager, cleaning and keeping the counter hygienic and presentable, applying testers to customers, traffic stopping, talking and recommending products to suit customers needs. I learnt how to provide exceptional levels of customer service and excellent sales techniques. Management are brilliant always happy to help no matter what. My work colleagues were lovely so easy to get along with. Hardest part of the job is probably standing on my feet all day ( you're not allowed to sit down )
two weeks in my ankles were swollen and sore, so getting comfortable shoes with ankle support is vital. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting lots of people and solving their beauty mishaps a lot of kind customers who are very trust worthy of putting their looks into your hands. I was also very pleasantly surprised at the rate of pay which was nearly 9 pound an hour. Another bonus was that they required no beauty qualifications from me as this was a sales role. I can say that overall I thoroughly enjoyed working for Benefit! If you love dolling yourself up every day and doing customer s makeup this is definitely for you!
