    I recently applied for a P/T job at a Clinique counter and was unsuccessful because I had limited retail experience.How much experience would they be happy with ???

    Similar role 6 months /1/2 years depends on the role and how you sold it. They need to know you are sound on customer service, team work, sales and dealing with problems.

    Above skills plus product knowledge of cosmetics, marketplace and their company in paricular.

    Go to the website it will tell you what sort of people they want.
