Agency only will get you working there, but can be only made permeant but as a production operator. There is a lot of hard workers that after numours years working there are still not permanent.

Fairly ok
Brand Consultant (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London18 September 2019
I had a great manager, but bare in mind its long hours, minimal training.
The obligation of having daily targets makes it harder.
Some workplaces force you to wear heels and make up.

Work job ever
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Nottingham5 July 2019
Ysl was one of the worst jobs I have ever done, being made a manager was a dream but it turned out to be a nightmare. I had no respect given to me and got bullied by a staff member and the store I worked in.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
List too long

Do not work here you are not appreciated for any work you do and have no support or help. Expecting you to be working even when you are off and get blamed for sales when off on holiday
Pros
Free make up

Everything

Can be a fun place to work!
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Bristol, Bristol19 May 2019
It can be very fun place to work. But the pay is rubbish!! Everyone is on different rates per hour so it doesn’t matter if your and manager or a part timer you could be on the same hourly rate depending on if you negotiated a decent rate!
The higher management is good but I definitely feel like they have favourited certain people in the region!

Customer Representative (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London20 March 2019
Robotic with too much pressure to achieve targets by selling several items "per transaction", God forbid if a customer just comes to buy one face wash!!!
Leave whatever is genuine about yourself: just say the lines they want and sell, sell, SELL!!!

they hate to fire people and embrace mistakes so be prepared to work alongside some questionable characters but also your own mistakes can be learned from within this environment.
Pros

Cons
no development, give everything get nothing

tough
Beauty Advisor (Current Employee) –  Bristol8 October 2018
Little flexibility from company but employee expected to be fully flexible and make changes to work reschedule and days off without notice. The Job itself is great but not very well managed and organised, I have come to realise that this is to be expected in retail.

A nightmare
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London14 August 2018
The service is nothing but a salty step by step script you're meant to follow not to loose points with the dreaded Mystery Shopper, it must start with "Welcome to Kiehl's" and nothing but "Welcome to Kiehl's"!
After more scripted lines you'll must be sitting down with customers and performing a gimmicky "consultation" using paper pads, whatever those are, that culminates into the recommendation of the "iconic" items you're meant to sell to everyone regardless of their needs and the questions you just asked them. A lot of theatre and acting involved, quite simple actually, but not so easy as it gets repetitive and feels fake.
Now add a lot of pressure for hitting targets and get customers details, rinse and repeat.
Managers will promote their friends who hire their friends and you'll may find yourself surrounded by colleagues who are related and or flat mates.
It pays better than Bobby Brown, but I wouldn't go back.
Pros
If you're friends with someone there
Cons
It's dreadful
