Learning about the Beauty Industry
Beauty Artist (Former Employee), Boston, MAMarch 9, 2014
Working at the Benefit Brow Bar was a great way for me to learn about the beauty industry. I learned how to apply makeup, work with customers, and handle the fast paced and challenging retail environment. A perfectly arched eyebrow or a new lip gloss may seem like silly things, but they can make a woman feel pretty and happy and ready to spend.

A great company that takes care of it's employees.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 3, 2014
Benefit is a great company that truly cares about their employees. They make sure they have all of the best knowledge available. Benefit knows that what we do is hard work so they appreciate us in more ways than one. It's always nice to hear "great job" or "thank you for all of your hard work", those little words really go a long way.

I was so pleased that I was asked to work with Benefit Cosmetics, as I love Makeup and changing someone's look.

This role has given me experience of target based sales, makeup training, customer service and working on a cash register. I also recieved health and safety training as I was an employee of boots and I recieved training in the appropriate action to take if there is a fire. I found this job very rewarding and very enjoyable – less

I had to sell to everyone who walked by my counter. If your staff is unreliable then that is the only hard part because you take the accountability. I enjoyed promoting different products, fun projects and meeting my sales goals.

Very Flexible Work
Freelance Make-up Artist (Current Employee), MichiganNovember 19, 2013
Its nice to be able to always do something different as a freelancer for Benefit. Traveling to different stores and performing the skills I have acquired as a make-up artist. Management is very close like family, and very flexible with your personal schedule. The pay is decent. I only wish they would pay for gas or drive time, only because some of the – more... stores visited are exceptionally spread out. – less

Fun and great counter to work at!
BEAUTY ADVISOR (Current Employee), Lake Grove, NY (Macy's Smithaven)March 14, 2013
Benefit was probably one of the best experiences I've had, job-wise, in a while. I have experience in retail but cosmetics retail is so much different and I've learned so much about the business through this job. The products are amazing and I've used them for years and I was thrilled when I got the chance to sell them and share their greatness with – more... others. The girls I work with are amazing and we all have so much fun doing what we love together whether it's in the everyday work setting or during special events. I'd say the only downside and the hardest part about this job is working within Macy's. The company stresses numbers and getting credits more than anything and it's a lot of pressure but otherwise the job is fantastic. – less

benefit cosmetics is not for women of color or for any woman who is sophisticated and worldly
arch expert (Former Employee), columbus, ohioMarch 3, 2013
Pros: met lots of wonderful people. built a heck of a following. i got tips.
Cons: worked my butt off and in return i got work harder make us more money. i hated working for benefit!
I would get embarrassed when women of color would come to the counter to have their makeup done because I did not have foundation or eye shadow colors that were appropriate for darker skin. But I did have blue lip gloss!
