    Pros

    Great walk-in clientele, guaranteed base pay, number one in training in the country, opportunity to master every aspect of hair cutting and coloring, quickly, and without having to apprentice under someone for 1+ years

    Cons

    Need a whole focus directed solely on recruiting, hiring and retaining stylists. Stylists are often left feeling unappreciated and replaceable. There should be compensation given and seniority rights to stylists, instead of making them feel like all these years of hard work are not paying off


  2. Great place for stylist.

    Pros

    Lots of locations, great access to potential walkin clients due to being in malls, walmarts, etc. Good for stylists right out of school. Lots of retail products to offer. Guaranteed paycheck.

    Cons

    Soooooo hard to make commission. Hourly wages are minimum wage. Open on holidays. High turnover resulting in inconsistent management. No education brought in. Speed and the almighty $ trump quality. Its a corporation and with that comes a lot of rules.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees concerns.

    Pros

    Best of both worlds: Lots of walk-in opportunities, plus a steady request clientele, great experience, great training, good scheduling, continuing education. Lots of free product.

    Cons

    Difficult to hit numbers for raises, benefits are fairly expensive, hiring decisions often happen out of desperation and as a result, there are often inexperienced and unprofessional stylists that make the whole salon look bad. Management is unsupportive and offers no insight or guidance when looking to increase clientele and making raises. Most conduct policies are vague, and management does not enforce the few rules that do exist.

    Advice to Management

    Make promotions more attainable, and create a program to help guide stylists to move up in commissions.

    Paper work, having to critique the People you work with which drama always follows, they play favorites, will never get a raise, work so hard to get nothing in return

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Product and tools are supplied.

    Cons

    Paid on commission and it is very low. Starts out at 38% and can only go up to 43%. Must wear all black to work and there is no reimbursement for this inconvenience.

    Advice to Management

    Think about a higher commission so the turn over rate isn't so high.
