    I worked at Regis Corporation

    Pros

    The stylists i worked with were great and we worked well together as a team, no thanks to corporate or upper management

    Cons

    I worked for a Regis salon for 2 years before i was terminated for what the company perceived as wrong doing. Regis is now attacking individual stylists using scare tactics via corporate phone calls that corner stylists, making them feel their job is secure if they go along with what they're saying. They set up a payment plan for the stylists according to what the company calculates they lost due to discounted services and special circumstances that corporate has no concern about as many of them know nothing about hair. As soon as they have you make a downpayment on the plan they had you sign along with your bank or credit card number, you will be
    suspended for a couple of days and terminated a couple of days later and ordered to pay.
    ********By the way, if you find yourself in that situation, do not sign anything or answer their interrogation, because it's all bogus until you sign. You will not be keeping your job any way you look at it if you get on a corporate call with a leader present.
    We were a salon of 8, they did this scare tactic to myself and the manager of the salon and 7 of us left along with our clientelle because the environment became too unbearable work in. Because of the way the company went about things, they took a salon that consistantly reached 98% of service and product goals and took it down to zilch.
    This company is great to work for if you enjoy an environment where you're made to feel like you'll never do anything right by upper management and love working for low pay and benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up, start appreciating your stylists, look for another job...i've read plenty of reviews about Regis and nobody at any level is safe or secure in their position.
    For corporate: you better start trying smarter tactics to earn your bottom dollar before you run every salon into the ground and nobody has a job

    Pros

    Competitive pay, flexible work schedules

    Cons

    The cons are what you make them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the reviews on this site pertaining to our company are false. I have been with regis 8 years and have moved up in the company. Any job especially in the hair industry is what you make it. There is alot of competition. You need to be above the rest. Slandering your company is not going to solve anything, it's just going to cost you business. If you are dissatisfied with your current position then do something about it instead of complaining and tearing down your place of employment. If it's as bad as you say, you look like a fool for staying. These reviews are false, and are by disgruntled employees.

    Pros

    Passionate people. Great benefits. Room for personal and professional growth. The opportunity to grow and mentor others in the industry.

    Cons

    3 years of upper management restructuring. Constant change at salon level which has created loss of talented long term employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the desire is to truly be employer of choice then focus on benefits and pay structure to attract and retain the best in the business.

    New corporate mgmt's best act so far...closely involving field leadership to transform the company!

    Pros

    Leader in the retail salon industry that's bent on transforming itself. Cultural turnaround and a new CEO and mgmt team who are prioritizing the work to be done and making the hard choices and putting things in place that a $2B-plus company should have.

    Cons

    Prior mgmt ran their own show so poorly that outside investors ousted many of them. The silver lining...a new mgmt team who 'gets it'. Um, maybe benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We didn't get in poor shape in a year...it'll take time to undo some practices and transform...keep involving the field and stick to your plan! Oh, and as we transform don't forget to revisit benefits!
