"I’ve worked for this company for 2.5 years, and it’s been amazing. It’s a rollercoaster, but I’ve learned so much, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It’s very flexible and you get to work with so many different personalities. As long as you’re open-minded and willing to learn, and you love makeup. This is the perfect company to apply to. I don’t think you’d regret it."
