    I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Salon chain, guaranteed clientele, bonus every month if the shop makes its goal.

    Cons

    Have to work long hours, the pay isn't that great for being the manager

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to keep managers pay them like your other salon chains, not a dollar more a hour when you work on a sliding pay scale and don't see a difference in your pay check.

    I worked at Regis Corporation part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Regis owns many concepts, so there is a variety of salons that you can transfer to throughout the company and world. Continuing education is great when provided.

    Cons

    Many concepts have a quantity far out ways quality sort of practice. Even when speed is not specifically stated in job requirements. Average pay for the same position in the same City is $3-4 lower than comparable business. Only promotions available require moving to commission before being considered. Benefits are nearly equal to paying for private personal insurance. Laws are often overlooked and those who point out the mistakes so improvements can be made find themselves with less hours and far less leeway than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the quality of the services being rendered rather than how fast a customer is moved out of the salon. More strongly enforce area supervisors following labor and discrimination laws.

    I worked at Regis Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It was an easy going place. Love the people I worked with and the clients. Had lots of fun.

    Cons

    Your commission is %40. yes you can make 45% and 50% but it's hard because you share the work with so many other workers. 40% is a complete rip off.

    Former Employee - Beauty Advisor  in  Saint Louis, MO
    Former Employee - Beauty Advisor in Saint Louis, MO

    I worked at Regis Corporation part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It was great to be able to have time to do homework and whatnot when working. I became very knowledgable with the different products and hair and beauty in general. My fellow employees as well as my immediate managers were all great.

    Cons

    The regional and district managers are awful - they have a false sense of superiority and have no regard for subordinates. There doesn't seem to really be much stability in the company, and stores keep closing left and right, which does not bode well for their future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more consideration for your employees, as well as a more professional attitude in regards to gossip and cattiness.
