    I worked at Benefit Cosmetics part-time

    Pros

    I had a lovely team of girls my counter manager was lovely and very fair.

    Cons

    Salary is low Commission is terrible Line Managers are unhelpful you’d be lucky to get a nice one. Training is extremely fake. Not as much as a cup of tea is offered at most trainings. Benefit prefer to pay influencers and send them on luxury trips than pay there staff a fair wage or provide any benefits. No hurry to train any employees.

    Advice to Management

    Change training techniques for when you eventually send your staff on training, comes across very fake.

    I worked at Benefit Cosmetics for less than a year

    Pros

    Free make up and good rate of pay

    Cons

    Didn't receive any make up training so basically had to wing it every time I did someones make up which wasn't fair on the client. Had unrealistic targets and would have to practically force people to buy products. Management didn't seem to understand that my priority was university. Although the majority of girls on the counter were nice there was a battle of egos and school like tensions.

    Advice to Management

    Give each employee proper training and be realistic with targets
