      Typical Hour Cuts and No Staff Appreciation - Discount is Fine

      May 8, 2021 - Assistant Front Store Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      20% off anything for you and whoever you let use your card (not necessarily allowed, but if my friends don't care about points and want the discount, I'll give it to them)

      Cons

      Hour cuts so you barely have any staff to get anything done - despite increased profits Removal of COVID pay for employees while execs get increased bonuses Don't care about their employees beyond whether or not they can increase the bottom line

      Fantastic for part time and passionate workers

      Pros

      Shoppers is a fun and rewarding place to be for the beauty industry. There is lots of experience that is built in the cosmetics department, such as marketing, overall beautician practices such as makeup artistry, esthetics (skin and nails), and hair. It helped build the foundation of my career! Lots of opportunities for training and networking. Commission is great and really helps if you’re a passionate worker in school!

      Cons

      Pay could be better given a lot of work can be considered beauty services, but commission isn’t too bad. Can be slow, and drama can happen in some teams unfortunately due to bad management.
