# Bullet and alignment issue in itemize environment [closed]

Itemize environment under the macro is not showing bullet. It's showing dash. Also, there is an issue with horizontal alignment. It's not aligned properly. I already fixed with by using \begin{itemize}[label=$\bullet$, leftmargin=*]. But I would like to know why it is happening? Thanks in advanced for all the help.

Here is my current result:

Here is my MWE that producing this result:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage[quiet]{fontspec}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
% List environment %
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\newenvironment{entrylist}{%
\begin{itemize}[noitemsep, leftmargin=0.9in]}{%
\end{itemize}
}
\newcommand{\entry}[3]{%
\item[#1]
\textbf{#2}%
\hfill%
{\footnotesize #3}%
}

\begin{document}
\begin{entrylist}
\entry
{05/15 - 01/16}
{Position 1}
{Employer 1}
\begin{itemize}%[label=$\bullet$, leftmargin=*]

• entrylist makes a first level itemize, so the inner one is second level. – egreg Mar 26 '16 at 14:17
