Company Culture

The culture was great up until the new manager took over. He did not like promoting honesty and punished employees for answering questions as so.

Support from management

Planning the store setup was the only help that I have every received from management.

Teamwork

The only kind of teamwork the new manager involved himself in was one that would benefit the company.

Freedom to work independently

The only time I had freedom to work independently was when the manager had his "friend" in the office. Other than that, he was just about breathing down your neck at the register.

Internal Communication

The manager specifically did not communicate appropriately because I think he had other motives for the company. Seems like he was trying to push all current employees out of the door.

Gender Equality

It seemed that shortly after the manager had cleaned house, he was looking for a certain "type" of employee.

Attitude towards older colleagues

If you consider the manager an older colleague, then yes.

Career Development

No room for growth with this company unless you suck up to managers.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay was minimal but hours are fair.

Office / Work Environment

After the new manager came in, the work environment was left with a feeling of foreboding.

Environmental Friendliness

As far as environmental Friendliness goes, I can assure you that it was all fake.

Work-Life Balance

When I first started, there was a lot of flexibility and sharing of schedules to make home life work. After the new manager was hired, that all went away very quickly. There were set and strict schedules.

Company Image

Looks great from the outside, doesn't it?

Job Security

I would still be working there if there was job security. Hours were steady though.

Handicapped Accessibility

Shelves were mostly too high but any employee could help assist if need be.

Workplace Safety

As far as safety goes, everything was mostly safe. Just as long as we don't count the rickety shelf in the back office.

Challenging Work

Work was not challenging at all. Things were pretty much easygoing when it came to setting up and decorating for events.

Inclusive / Diverse

It was diverse when I first started, but only because the current manager hadn't fired all of us yet.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management replacement.

What I like about the company

I like that it had the potential to be a creative space and I really enjoyed the employee discount.

What I dislike about the company

I was highly disappointed with the treatment of employees. I feel like I was discriminated against because of my appearance. Tattoos, piercings, hair color, etc.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get some modern technology. Investing in new computers and printers would leave less room for error.

What I like about the company

Some room for growth if management positions become available. Free employee samples so you can recommend products to customers. If you are interested in the beauty industry you can learn from clients as CosmoProf is only open to industry professionals who usually will share their expertise. Also a good way to become familiar with various products and color lines.

What I dislike about the company

Pay isn’t great but is fair for an easy job. The one thing that I really don’t like is that their technology is extremely outdated. Really old computers and printers that are not user friendly. Like really old, like early 90s computers. Non laser printers that take ages to print. If a customer forgets their membership card the system to look them up only works half the time. IT and the helpline have to be contacted constantly for looking up members and computer issues and it’s hard to get through to people. My biggest gripe would be that their technology is super old and makes everything slower and harder than it should be.

UGH

1.94

Support from management

ZERO

Teamwork

In my store the team work is bare minimum. Upper management is lazy and realizes on the rest of the staff to do everything even though they weren’t properly trained.

Internal Communication

No one communicates with anyone and it’s pulling teeth to get anything accomplished.

Overall compensation for your work

Very little raise amounts and they pay management poorly.

Office / Work Environment

Very stressful. Company never backs employees. You get paid barely min wage when starting out and the yearly raises are small and half the time you never get it on time.

Environmental Friendliness

They do provide a recycling dumpster.

Work-Life Balance

They want you to give your soul to them. Forget a day off. Long hours always being called on your days off. You have sick time but you can never use it.

Handicapped Accessibility

The isles are pretty narrow and stores are usually cluttered.

Workplace Safety

Work alone all the time. Early in the morning and after it’s dark. No one should ever be alone now a days.

Inclusive / Diverse

Very little in the store I’m at.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Start listening to your employees when they have an issue and pay them more since this job requires so much.

What I like about the company

Vacation and sick pay (even though you can never use it) paid holidays and lots of samples.

What I dislike about the company

There’s sooooooo much. Raises are terrible, management can’t manage, HR never takes care of serious issues, always working alone which isn’t safe, you can’t have a personal life working here either.
