    They have replaced everyone that knew anything about the company with people from totally unrelated businesses!

    Pros

    Co- workers and customers were great, they work with quality products and they have some great stylists.

    Cons

    They claim to want to be the " employer of choice", but they treat their people horribly! The pay is awful, and the so called benefits are a joke!

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your people like they matter!

    Pros

    I loved doing hair. It was nice to get free stuff from vendors.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible!!!! Managing a salon, marketing the salon to the area, AND being behind the chair and making commission. Literally impossible when you have to do all those things. Not to mention barely making over minimum wage. Upper management was terrible once they changed everything. My first 2 district leaders were great! I went in every high performers award trip they held for the managers and I still couldn't get a raise from the company. My salon was a newer SmartStyle in a wealthy area so it was difficult to build. Needless to say, I spent countless hours/days working for a company who really doesn't want to pay anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Be supportive. Pay your stylists/managers.

    Pros

    MY customers and co workers. This company does not deserve to say they lead the industry. They treat their employees terrible. We do way more than be hair stylist for them. We are secretaries, maids, plumbers, advertisors, and more! The customers are their last concern. Over 20 yrs I've worked for them and I am treated no different than a new hire. Shame in me for staying so long with a company that manipulates, not educates, and blames their employees for their low wages instead of their impossible production scale. This company takes from their employees daily through coupons. I pray the truth comes out sooner than later.

    Cons

    Changes, changes daily. Leadership is horrible. No commincation beyond store level. Company has low standards for the condition of their stores. Safety stanards non exsistant. Focus on everthing but the customer, more than likely due to corporation lacks anyone from the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to basics. Re-invest in your stores. Value your employees. This doesn't have to be in the form of money. Appreciate those that have been loyal. Always make the customer first. Lastly, comunicate...it solves anything.

    Pros

    Great place for just out of school stylists, gain up on product knowledge, meet a lot of interesting people

    Cons

    Paid $7.25 an hour, can only make more if you meet commission but if its in a small town and a small salon then you're screwed, doesn't care about the safety of employees, tries to charge people without being straight forward (ie, charging an extra $1 for conditioner rather than putting it within the price of the cut/shampoo), no extra training other than outdated videos, if you're not in a manager position then don't expect to get more than 24 hours a week, also no bonuses and you have to work on holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to care about your employees and listen to what they're saying and why. Don't assume every salon has the amount of people coming in as another salon. We're all very different and not all salons are busy. We can't force someone to get their hair done.

    Pros

    Perks. You get free samples of all new products and get to attend some fashion shows.

    Cons

    No support from management. There is no HR department. Company policies that would benefit employees are not enforced. State Board rules/regulations are not complied with. Repairs that need to be made to salon are not ever done unless the manager does it themselves. No rewards for seniority or benefits or recognition for being there a long time. High turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Get trained on how to deal with people. Don't pick favorites. Comply with company and board policies. Hire experienced individuals instead of just trying to "fill chairs".

    Pros

    The people I work with and my regular clients.

    Cons

    Minimum wage in Tn. is $7.25 an hour so that is all i make. Other states have a higher minimum wage but Regis does not pay fairly across the board. Also the salon I work in is in desperate need of updating, fixing, and a major overhaul. The company is not very clear about their commission rates, education is not good at all, and too much emphasis is placed on retail sales. Forget about benefits, you will never work enough hours to ever have any.

    Advice to Management

    $12 an hour straight across the board and you would have a booming business. Better education than just sending a DVD for the employees to watch in a cramped back room.

    Pros

    It gives some experience, the training was very educational and the instructor was great! If she would have been my boss I would have stayed!

    Cons

    You do not get a percentage of your services until you pass the minimum wage cap which ends up being over $25 in services per hour, which you have to maintain every time you work. Some employees allow home life to disrupt work and made for an extremely uncomfortable work environment.

    Pros

    There is nothing that comes to mind.

    Cons

    Lets start off with management because thats one of the biggest problems with this corporation, the management here is so shady ive worked in 7 different stores all but one was the manager pleasant to work for. I often felt as though there was so much tension between hair stylist and managers that even the customers would feel uncomfortable there , it results in hairstylist building clientele as fast as they can and leaving to a better work environment. Also understand working here means no weekends off ever unless you are the manager or friends with the manager, this also adds to a hostile work environment. Then the pay... the numbers are ridiculous of revenue collected in a month at most stores they can afford to pay more then minimum but this company does not care about the stylist so they pay you as low as your state will allow ,if Supercuts had it their way they would be paying you in beans. Sure you get tips, but because of the clientele the Supercuts draws in because if its chinsy demeanor you often get stiffed. And the "sliding pay scale" thats a carrot dangling in front of a donkey. No one I have ever met has slid a substantial amount the most ive ever heard was 30 cents.

    Advice to Management

    Care for your stylist, they are the core of this operation.
