Q: What do you LOVE about your job at Root?

Finally, I truly believe in Root’s customer service emphasis. That’s something I influence every day, and I take pride in providing the best possible experience for customers.

Q: What does a typical day as a Root Beauty Assistant look like?

A:  I work full-time as a Beauty Assistant in the summer, and part time during the school year while I’m attending UNI. On any given day I could be shipping out product, interacting with a customer during a consultation or stocking product. I naturally tend to take on a leadership role, so I really like mentoring newer Beauty Assistants and training too!

Connecting and getting to know the customers is one of my favorite things about my job, and my upbeat personality, empathy and overall team-focus help a lot when working with customers. Finally, problem solving is a big strength of mine, which comes in handy when getting products shipped out quickly and with high quality.

Q: Tell me about your favorite Root memory:

A: After a HUGE sale, I was apart of a team that shipped out over 200 orders in one day! That’s our fastest turnaround time and our new record! Joining together with the team to shatter our goal was super rewarding.
