I think you're treated fairly but it's all licensed beauticians and very strong personalities so if you don't like strong women/people this is not the place for you
It is geared towards men, and they are given the advantage accordingly. Which includes bonuses, if there even any to be had, promotions, and paid leave. It's policies work against you if you have children and need to take them to a doctor's appointment, or pick them up from school because they are sick, etc. The pay is totally dependent on being constantly available to cover shifts, being given the hours that are afforded the most customers, and therefore more money that's available to be had, as well as, working 10+ hours a day, being able to pressure your customers to buy unnecessary added features because you will not make any money just selling a plan and a phone, and being willing to pull shady maneuvers to get a sale, or add features without the customers attention. The pressure is real, and it's motto is you can always do more no matter how much you excel. It's an extremely sexism environment, I cannot tell how many times I would be commented on about how my ability to do extremely well was solely based on me being a pretty girl or having boobs, or being a blonde. Top that off with my boss giving me unwanted relationship advice, calling me to go out, smacking my butt with cords for fun, and constantly expressing inappropriate serial comments or jokes. The worst was if a customer was giving me unwanted advances, or just plain creeping me out, if I asked for help I was told to suck it up, smile at the customer. And use my womanly wiles to make that sale. Now knowing all this keep in mind they if your willing to do the work and ignore all this you can make up to 40k to 50k a year. You do get some money weekly from an hourly wage starting at 7$ and depending on how much you sell, a monthly commission check on top of it. You always get great benefits, as far as shopping, healthcare, and a childcare subsidy. But despite this a lot of the women quit, and you will be predominantly outnumbered in the workplace, and find it harder to get promotions. It comes down to what you value most comparayively, and what you be willing to forgive or ignore if you want to work for this company
