Beauty Advisor

July 2021 • Cedar Falls, IA

What I liked

I have enjoyed being able to talk to a variety of people, assessing and helping their individual needs, learning about new products, and seeing the ins and outs of running a business.

What I wish was different

I wish that I could have started working a little bit earlier and possibly applied for a different position. I have enjoyed the few bits of facing I get to do and think I would enjoy stocking as well as being a beauty advisor.

Advice

Be comfortable with trying things that are unexpected. Coming into this job, I had no prior experience as a cashier. It took a bit of a learning curve balancing working the cash register as well as providing quality service to patrons. I had to learn very quickly to just being comfortable in this place of unknowing for a while and ask questions.

May 2019 • Pittsburgh, PA

What I liked
