Excellent management team, staff across the board were excellent to work with and the feeling of value and self worth in the workplace made a difference to my day.

With some changes in company structure it is noticeable that the company is understaffed and job descriptions need to match responsibilities.

Doing Make overs, providing skincare consultation and demonstrating products on customers.
Constantly provides with product knowledge on new products.

Management is very approachable and understanding in all aspects of work.

Hardest part of this job is to make budget when business is slow during the cold winter months.

The most enjoyable part of this job is when I have great customer feed back from a very satisfied and happy customer and having such great colleagues to work with.
Pros
receiving commission by achieving monthly targets.
Cons
working on friday nights

Job Culture
A typical day never goes as planned, quick decisions are required in a fast and action paced work environment. A great learning ground for working as a team and developing leadership skills. Communication and execution are key to the success of any tasks undertaken. Great and friendly co-workers with a touch of a home away from home.

Meeting deadlines and achieving targets is paramount and the added pressure of execution of campaigns and offers makes some days tough. But are compensated by the teamwork and efforts put in by the co-workers to achieve the objectives, which though under pressure add fun to the day as well.
Pros
No two days the same, challenging, great learning opportunities
Cons
long hours, and on the go all day
