    I have been working at Bluemercury full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lot's of learning. Gratis. Discount. Fun co-workers. Top brands. Top clientele.

    Cons

    Filthy store behind the scenes. If you have a manager that cares, expect to do a lot of cleaning, because Bluemercury does NOT hire professionals to deep clean their stores, ever, even during the Covid-19 pandemic! YOU will do ALL of the cleaning and they only give you minimal supplies! They are even keeping pre-Covid testers in the back with intent to return them to the floor, these should all be thrown out. Lots of their products are on the shelves for years. They only care about their bottom line, not your well being or the customers.

    Advice to Management

    CLEAN the stores and be ETHICAL. You expect the sales help to do all cleaning with minimal supplies at minimal pay. A top end beauty retailer should have professional cleaning at least once a month instead of NEVER. Disgusting standards for the beauty industry, especially with the current pandemic.

    Interview
