    I worked at M.A.C part-time

    Pros

    Good Estee Lauder companies benefits. A good way to learn basic makeup artistry.

    Cons

    Insanely high targets for artist, job at risk if not met with no allowance for traffic flow/peak shift times. Exponential deliveries, left to very few stock assistants. Managers with no real skill getting a god complex. Very little support. Recent redundancies, company going under fast.
