@Krystyn Lowe Yes, it's so insane! I've detailed my experiences in both an Orogold and an Adore "boutique" elsewhere on this site:
I get more and more disturbed thinking about when the saleswoman at Adore claimed it was "impossible" for anyone to be allergic to their products. That's straight up foolywang, but as she's assuming a position of "expert" in the interaction, a more...shall we say, trusting consumer might see no reason not to believe her, and could have a serious, potentially fatal, allergic reaction. But the saleswoman sees the customers strolling through the mall in the exact same way her employers see her - which is, just barely.
These scammy outfits reveal the worst aspects of human nature - their entire success is based on deception, exploitation, and selfishness. The employees deceive, cheat, and potentially endanger the customer, while in turn the owners of the companies mislead, exploit, and potentially endanger the employees, the majority of whom are working illegally and hired on false premises. Some of them don't even earn an hourly wage - just commissions. For both the corporate bigwig recruiting and exploiting young workers and the saleswoman desperate to earn commission on 2oz of perfumed silicone sold at a 1000% mark-up, getting through the workweek, making a profit, and collecting a paycheck are all that matters - no thought is given to the real human unhappiness that is spread by what each is doing.
