    I worked at Urban Decay Cosmetics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free product allocation
    Annual conference
    Can have tattoos, piercings and bright hair
    Sometimes good commission at Christmas

    Cons

    Commission isn’t great
    No regular shift pattern (same as all retail jobs)
    Pay isn’t very good
    Not many progression routes
    Direct managers often very young and inexperienced
    Always seemed to be issues with stock

    Advice to Management

    Need more progression routes for staff, need better management training, issues with stock meaning staff lose out on sales then get blamed for not making target

    Easy, I work through a third party so I basically transferred in. But I absolutely love UD Products. I just expressed myself and my skills to the employer and was hired
