    Pros

    Guaranteed wage for stylists. Some growth opportunities. Benefits are offered to full time employees, but are expensive. Some flexibility in schedule depending on location.

    Cons

    Terrible pay for Salon Managers. Income is based on productivity with very little time devoted to team coaching. Very useless WIG program that is great in theory, but does not work in a salon environment. Upper Management does not listen to stylists and stylists and Salon Managers are threatened with written warnings if they get overtime. This means a lot of work is done off the clock without pay.

    Advice to Management

    Take a stand, make a difference. Demand better treatment of your employees. Find out what is really happening in your salons. Enforce work ethics.

    Pros

    - Excellent way to break into the IT industry at the Edina corporate office and get your foot in the door/build your Résumé. - Lots of potential to gain experience and understand how things work in a corporate environment. - Free food in the lunchroom

    Cons

    - Pay is very low compared to the other IT jobs in the area. On average you will make about 20% less than what you normally would from a position requiring the same experience/education. - No 401k matching, no short term disability (medical) leave, very little PTO (10 days per year) and health coverage is very poor. - This is not a company you should expect to work for in the long haul and retire from due to the major lack of benefits and low pay. - The Salon support helpline is heavily micromanaged by the supervisors/team leads and there is extremely high turnover. The helpline is mostly filled with temporary contractors, some of which have little to no experience troubleshooting even basic computer issues. Combining this with the fact that the helpline has never been staffed to acceptable levels, and you have a very high stress environment. Many of the talented employees put in their 1-3 years of experience and move on which is why the average seniority of an employee is barely 1 year. - Even some of the most talented employees on the helpline at the bottom rung are not recognized for their performance and are given little opportunity to move up the ladder to new positions.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the bar on hiring standards. Once you have a talented team of employees that is paid well, you won't have to micro-manage them nearly as much resulting in increased happiness and productivity.

    Pros

    Meeting new people everyday.

    Cons

    Pay is horrible, older salons do not get remodeled. A lot of salons closing. Too much restructing with new CEO in place. Went through so many different RVP's, RD's, and S/DL's. No room for advancement unless you already have the experience for the job you want to be promoted to. They let go a lot of leaders that were loyal the company 20+years when they did not want to retire.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees opportunity to prove their worth when a promotion comes available other than hiring externally. Too many changes have gone on and lack of communication for home office is ridiculous.

    Pros

    Great talent, training , loyal guest. If you have been with the company for 20 yrs the the ability to move up is quick otherwise you will be stuck at current position

    Cons

    This company only cares for its bottom dollar. The Guest and employee mean nothing but a number to these people

    Advice to Management

    Support your staff and your company will thrive
