I was hired as a beauty advisor to work on this counter. I was probably one out of about 5 people in the entire beauty department who was even a qualified makeup artist. The counter is always extremely quiet, and as a young millennial, I worked my butt off to draw customers over to the counter, running my own events, but got no recognition for it. My probation period ended, and resulted in me staying permanently. I was given a target to meet with the counter in terms of money, they wanted to push me a little harder. This was just a casual conversation. I then unfortunately fell really ill and could not work for a number of weeks, when i returned to work. I was told that because I did not take as much money on the counter as they wanted, they had to terminate my contract. They also said "that before I fell ill, they had extended my probation period and if I did not meet the desired targets that they would have to terminate my contract" Now, A. this conversation never took place, nor did they ask me to sign anything agreeing to the extended probation time, so I had no idea what they were talking about because they had never said this to me. B. Whilst I was off ill, of course I couldn't of pushed the counter to it's highest potential, and meet the targets they wanted. So in the end they terminated my contract. I was treated like dirt on the bottom of someone's shoe. Stay away people.
shifts were short with the opening and closing times, therefore i could get out there asap
