    WORSE SALON FRANCHISE TO WORK FOR IN HISTORY!!!!

    Stylist (Current Employee) San Antonio, TX

    ProsOnly two good things, Good customers , great way to build then leave and take them with you!!!!!

    ConsThey fire and hire back the same stylist that are rude and don't like to work. Hours are crap and the pay scale sucked. if you want to build start here and then leave after 2 years. In the 80's they cared about their stylist but now it is all about QUANITY NOT QUALITY!!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementDO AS YOU SAID NOT AS YOU DO......PAY YOUR STYLIST MORE AND TREAT THEM LIKE PEOPLE .. PERHAPS YOU SHOULD STAND BEHIND THE CHAIR ALL DAY AND SEE HOW HARD THEY WORK...THEN YOU CAN JUDGE..........

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    If you're into being over worked, under paid, and used, then you will love it

    Salon Manager (Former Employee) Savannah, GA

    ProsWalk in clients, health insurance, incentive points

    Consupper management has no idea how to do hair most of the time, or they are out of touch with stylists needs. They won't hesitate to step on you to get ahead. Aaaaaaand don't ever think you are having a private call. Because they will share and give you up when you asked to remain anonymous.
    Pretty much it isn't worth the headache to work here. They don't care about you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to do hair. Listen to what we need. And optimized schedules Do not work

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    still on government assistance after working for Regis for 15 years

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Orlando, FL

    ProsWill hire anyone with a license, reguardless of skills.
    Located everywhere
    Good products to work with.

    ConsYou have to work nights and you have to work weekends per corporate. This company only cares about the numbers. Pay scale is designed to make Regis money. Corporate promises raises, but doesn't come through, only strings you along. Screws you out of vacation pay. Guaranteed pay is only minimum wage, and is frowned upon and could get you let go and I've seen people get talked into quitting so they wouldn't have to fire so they wouldn't have to pay unemployment. I would never advise someone to work at any Regis location or any of their other salons. They are the most greedy company I have ever worked for.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdvise to take a course in ethics.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Ex manager who gave her all and nothing to show for it

    Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsI use to love working there till they put a local manager, made her dristrict leader, who was on a power trip and made 5 of us quit.

    ConsWhen they bring in a greenhorn and bully, and makes the manager feel like it is no longer her salon use to love working there till they made a local manager drstrict leader

    Advice to Senior ManagementUs workers are the ones that make your pay checks, hire only district leaders that work with there managers not against them , don't hire managers to become district leaders that are control freaks, why very hard to work with this type of personally, the hard working manager will get so disgusted with this type of bullies , and will quit and walk out , not that they want to but have to , just to keep there sanity. You do realize how you ruin the life of a manager who lived , breathed , Regis for over 13 years with them , the manager who gave there all, I have had 8 district leaders that were good with me , this last one you made district leader awful, ,,,, and to think I hired her fresh out of beauty school , what a monster she turned into. We'll in a month I will lose my car to the bank, will be on the street because of the bully you just put in charge. I didn't need this type of person in my life , someday she will be in my shoes when she is 60 and a widow and will be faced to live on 0 income , why because they listened to her lies .

    Nice people, bad company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe technical staff was very friendly and easy to work with. They want to do a good job. The company provides free lunch food though many employees go out.

    ConsManagers did not hesitate to lie. They used software illegally. The CEO receives a large bonus that does not depend on how well the company does.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire, don't fire, the people who understand the business.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Corporate leaders need to work a day in the salon

    Stylist (Current Employee)

    ProsI really do not have many positive things to say anymore...new policies and protocols in recent months have really impacted the overall working experience here

    ConsWhere to start?
    poor commission pay, expensive benefits, no incentive for long term employees, not enough staff, turning away clientel, optimized scheduling worst idea ever for walk in salons, poor management if any at all, micromanagement from higher ups, no set schedule for stylists with clientel, working every weekend, no accomadations or flexibilty with scheduling, unsafe working conditions, ect....ect...

    Advice to Senior ManagementCome into some salons, stand behind a chair, work alone in a salon...just for one day....Improve the scheduling system because all the market analysis and research you did was a waste of time figuring out your new "optimized scheduling"...it doesnt work in a walk in salons..You will never generate new business by having one stylist on shift, turning 15 to 20 people a shift away because of long wait times...LISTEN to your stylists as we are the ones working hard making YOU money!! Give some better incentives to work for you because after 10 years of this nonsense (as a manager and stylist) Im ready to walk WITH my clientel that I earned and brought into YOUR business!

    can I sue regis?

    Hair Stylist (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

    Prosnone really. i witnessed my boss book appointments for stylists who were not comfortable doing highlights and from the get go thats not a good time.

    Consonly spanish speaker in the salon. ( translator) in a mall where majority of customers speak little to no english. they're giving me 3 days off i'm barely hitting 24-25 hrs a week. my boss never cancelled my insurance, she insists that "it takes a couple of checks to go through and cancel " but the year is almost over and my checks have been like 199 each because she never faxed the info to hr to cancel my benefits :( i cant live with what they pay. and less than 3 classes a year, and whenever we had an educator teach us she always talked crap about there techniques. its sad because you go to school for that crappy pay?im so glad to be leaving to a better salon.

    Advice to Senior Managementhire people who can speak more than one language.

    Horrible company to work for. Underpaid and overworked

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe only pro would be the clients are there

    ConsPay is horrible. You are overworked and way underpaid. They make it impossible to make more money. Absolutely no good benefits to even pay for. District leaders are untrustworthy and deceitful. Tried putting in my notice to change careers and they got rid of me instead. Never appreciates the hard work you put into it. District leaders are fake and lazy. They will use and abuse you til you are no longer needed. Working nights and weekends gives you no time to be with your family.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen your eyes and see who is really ruining your company . Its not the stylists, its the leaders.

    Current Stylist Soon to be Former Stylist

    Hair Stylist (Current Employee) Salisbury, MD

    ProsThere is nothig good to say about this company

    ConsThis company is so jacked up it's not funny. No one in the front office has a clue. You get paid nothing for all the work you have to do. The "higher ups" do not give a darn about the real workers, the stylists, becuase they pay nothing and give nothing back in return, but want you to work hard. The district management, regiona management, and local management are not on the same page. They all say something different when it comes to protocol and what is expected of the stylists.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry working for a week, heck, a day in one of your salons and not the best ones either to see the real deal. Learn what it feels like to be behind the chair and not in your cozy offices getting the millions in stock options.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
