Terrible place

Terrible pay for the amount of stress and work you have to do. I was thrown into deep end at day one with poor training. Fragrance section was so busy and constant stock coming in and manager telling me off for not sorting Fragrances out and putting stock out yet I'm always busy with customers.

Would not recommend working at this company. If you do happen to take a job and experience any negative behaviour going on in the workplace I wouldn’t even bother reporting it to HR because they will not do anything about it.




Stressful. Poor management. Expected to run yourself ragged.

Not bad

Ok if you want a job, on your feet a lot, customers generally nice, pay isn’t the best but not the worst either. Depending on the customer, can be a good or bad experience.


Nice staff

money hungry driven mean management

No customer care required. Just take their money and move on to the next paying customer. don't talk too long if they aren't going to buy anything. I don't lie for anyone.




arrive at work early, no recognition. Take one extra minute for lunch and you are put on notice.

Not nice

I worked at the port Adelaide store I found the manager to be very rude For what they wanted done in a time frame was ridiculous when you were on main and backup for the day plus helping customers Some staff were favourites and got away with a lot etc didn’t open the Reggie took long tea breaks and lunch breaks The pay was horrendous for what need to be done They didn’t care about your family but if anything happen to theirs it was a big deal I always seem to get late finishes it was not shared properly I’m very disappointed




Long hours

Fun place to work

My typical day at work could be boring at times as I was always on the front counter. However when it was busy in the store, I liked to interact with the customers which was the best part of the job. I didn't learn much at this job. At times it was hard to get along with some of the staff.


long lunch breaks

Productive workplace

Good work environment. Ability to advance to higher positions. Don’t get paid after shop closes regardless of having to stay back on average 15 minutes each shift. Roster is not flexible at all.

My beauty Spot (chemist Warehouse) is a great company to work at on a part time or casual basis for students. However I believe this company lacked basic respect for their employees and in ways felt bullied.

Busy so day goes faster

The job is okay, very fast pace and you have to be very open minded when it comes to customers. The management could use work as they are not very flexible.

Very Poor Salary

Very poor salary, they are looking mostly for people who are willing to do a lot of work for very little pay. I don't recommend working here unless you really are willing to do hard work for almost nothing. Include the cost of the bus getting to and from work, paying for your lunch, and you don't earn that much. People work there a few weeks and then leave because it's not worth it. $13 per hour is just hilarious. LOL.


Very easy interview


Very bad pay, hiring manager basically looks for people willing to do free labour.
