what happens after you get hired?


Well-known member
Hey guys!

So i finally have an interview with MAC at nordstroms (in colorado). I've gone through all the questions that they might ask and i know the demo starts after. now...IF i get hired (which i'm hoping and praying for), what happens next? do i start training with MAC and what exactly does that mean? I've worked for nordstroms before being a cashier for clinique (but they were connected with MAC, so i got to know the girls really well....although this was in california). sorry if this is so vague.

If you're hired permanent, you will start within a week or two & go to Basic as soon as one comes around (could be a week, could be a few months).

If it's freelance/on-call, you will have to wait till your paperwork comes through (anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months) and then you sit around until they have an event & call you to work...there is almost no formal training to speak of (some regions have freelance training, but they are few & far between)

Either way, be prepared to do a lot of quick learning on the job.

Good luck!

MisStarrlight basically answered your question. But in regards to your question about training - basic is pretty much training on product knowledge and your responsibilities as a MAC MA. It's 5 days, it's super fun and very helpful and informative.
