Company needs a review
Key Holder (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 May 2019
The company itself does not offer anything to their employees to make them want to grow within the company. They do not offer wage increases, benefits or commission. The hours are based on the needs of the business which means that you can work anywhere from 5-20+ hours per a week. They do not value their employees. Not a great company to work for.

Their managers in several of their locations needs better training because they are unprofessional.
Pros
Free makeup, discounted makeup
Cons
No benefits, no raises, few hours, bad management

Not good
Supervisor Keyholder (Former Employee) –  London, ON2 February 2019
I went in with an open mind and I was really excited about the opportunities of NYX. What I received soon after starting was the worst management, hardly any work life balance, the wage was okay but no benefits. There were absolutely no training and it was such a new company at the time that there was no structure and it was just a mess... and will actually take away your title or demote you instead of all the opportunity you thought there was.
Pros
Creative freedom, a good job for a starter job for a makeup artist
Cons
No work life balance, no structure, no benefits, no training

Productive & a fun experience
Cashier/stock person (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 July 2018
I highly recommend you go and apply for Nyx Professional Makeup if you have an easy going schedule, a passion for makeup, experience & if you are planning on, or are enrolling in college for Cosmetic management, or maybe even taking a Beauty Spa course, this would be perfect for you to learn a lot, get even more experienced & practice your makeup skills.
Pros
free products, good prices, discounts on all purchases, learn new tricks, theme day every Friday.
Cons
A lot of cleaning, short hours, short breaks.

Worked to the bone
Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto6 May 2018
A typical day at work meant working all day, all night, weekends and on days 'off.' Corporate culture is cutthroat! What did I learn? That no job (especially in makeup) is worth losing your sanity. The hardest part of the job was dealing with unprofessional millennials who think they knew everything about life, work and everything in between; insubordination and lack of respect. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fun 'perks' associated with a brand - but most times - one had to be 'on' and essentially you were too tired to enjoy said perks or events.
Pros
Exciting Brand
Cons
Long hours (slave labour, salary abuse)

Poor managemen
Beauty Advisor (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC1 March 2018
Poor management a lot of mis communication lots of drama immaturity with managers, managers tend to choose they're relationship with who's up to they're standards lots of sale targets my discount was taken away because we're low on hours and I didn't make enough hours to have benefits very very slow after the holidays only mods get hours managers talk down to you and talk to you rudly here and there , they're very rude sometimes I'm leaving very soon didn't like the working inviroment it's all about money can't make testers because it's paid by how much the store makes so does hours ,hours are based on how much the store makes and they said hours are now based on as well I didn't find very much team playing at the store I worked at different roles and different pay for everybody ect

A very creative and modern environment to work in
Beauty Advisor (Current Employee) –  Oshawa, ON23 October 2017
The job allows you to gain a ton of experience in performing makeovers on clients and you are rewarded often for your good job with free product. The position of beauty advisor forces you to step out of your comfort zone and try new and creative things with makeup

Fun to work if you love makeup but dealing with mall customers and unprofessional management can become tough
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON22 August 2017
- Coworkers tend to be decent
- Salaries unfair between roles, because 99% of the time the staff is doing the same job but the pay difference between roles is ridiculous
- Management depends on the store, the one I worked at they were immature and you could tell not very experienced in managing
- You have to wear makeup every single day, full face, which can get annoying
Pros
Free makeup sometimes
Cons
Rude customers & Poor management

NYX Professional Makeup is a Dream but...
Stock Associate (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON6 April 2017
Honestly working for a cosmetic brand as influential as NYX was a dream for me aside from issues with management here and there. Working in stock is great, the pay is decent.
Pros
Get to try new products!
Cons
Hours always fluctuate.
