    Pros

    They give you oppprtunities to train at their nearest headquarters, ie seasonal school and for big launches

    Cons

    Not really makeup related, all intense sales target based Intense probationary period, no room at all for absences and you need to be hitting your targets 100% and very good IPT always or else they probably won’t offer you a longer contract with the company

    Pros

    Amazing products Great area manager! Good discounts

    Head office management is too busy, so it’s a little bit disorganised at the moment. Unreachable targets.

    I have been working at Smashbox Cosmetics part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Estée Lauder discounts, commission (if you receive any)

    Cons

    You only get a couple day’s of training. So if you are not confident with makeup application I wouldn’t recommend. The management totally ignore you. Unless they have something to complain to you about. Especially if you are on a counter alone. You have to practically beg for attention just to receive the correct clearance on the iPad. I’ve honestly never been so dissatisfied and bored. So early into a job I’ve already started looking for new jobs. My counter has been abandoned for over 8 months and it shows in their treatment. You spend more time with the section co of the store you work in. Who knows little to nothing about your counter. So you spend a lot of time doing guess work. They sporadically train you for another day or two when they remember you don’t know something that you should. Everything from receiving testers to visual merchandising is a haste. Considering they’ve been open for a long time you would think basics like that would be easy to handle. If I had known I never would’ve started working here. It’s my first time working on a counter and I’d honestly never do it again.
