I was wondering if anyone is curently working or has worked for Benefit?
I really want a job there and wanted to know what your experiences were like. Good or bad! Also what does their interview process entail?
So I turn up today, 10 minutes early, told to wait for regional manager. 3 other girls come, we wait an hour, no sign of her, get told to go for coffee and they will call us so we wait another hour. Went back to the store and was told they can't reach the regional manager and that they are sorry but we have to go. So annoyed, wasted my time and money they haven't even phone with a apology
Bumping old thread.
I have an interview with Benefit, I didn't even remember that I applied. And so far, the interwebs are giving me mixed reviews about working for the company, which I don't mind, since I used to work in a pushy sales environment, approaching people all the time. I was wondering if anyone knew how busy the Benefit Counter in Macys in Herald Square (34th St) gets, and do those counters get employed by MACYs, or the individual counters?
I currently work for benefit in Manchester, and let me tell you, if your counter has a brow bar then you should do what you can to get on there. Before i was a brow expert i hated my job of traffic stopping all day and making no sales and getting shouted at. Since working on brows you build up your own clients, have appointments to attend to all day and are always busy (sometimes i run over with time) and so the day goes so much faster! You only have to traffic stop if you dont have a brow appointment which is unlikely because you get alot of walk ups.
My advice is to walk around the store not even traffic stopping and keep walking past your counter. everytime you walk round look out for any walkups and when there is one do your best to sit them down or link sell atleast. if someone comes knowing what they want and thats it, i grab it for them and say 'do you need a new mascara while your here? have you ever even heard of our mascara by the way?' and if they say no i act surprised and show them our 'theyre real' mascara and how its now the 'worlds number 1 top selling mascara' they always end up buying!
not only is working on brows better for less traffic stopping but your pay also goes up by £1 and you get £1 for every brow you do :) your target is only to sell a product to 50% of your customers that you have! so much better. On the makeup side, your targets are £390 a day and £1000 at christmas time! a day!
im more than happy to answer any questions even though this is an old thread :)
