    Pros

    Great health benefits for full time employees. Networking with professionals, product knowledge training, rewards points, team work, fun work atmosphere.

    Cons

    The highest raise is .30 cents. The manager was unprofessional, and unfair towards employees. The area the store is located in was unsafe due to the demographics.

    Advice to Management

    The District Manager should consider offering anger management classes to difficult managers who thrive on drama.

    Pros

    Easy job, decent pay if your looking for a first, free samples every month for employees.

    Cons

    Pay isn't enough if you have responsibilities. You need to learn a lot about hair chemicals and beauty on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to train employees and raise pay.

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay, very lax dress code. Respectful environment and lots of room to grow. I enjoyed my time here.

    Cons

    Very strict on certain archaic rules that personally I thought slowed down the whole customer service process but other than that I have no complaints.

    If you looking for part-time work, majority of the time they don't need. This is a great full-time job/career.

    Satisfy chain of command, advance product knowledge, and always take initiative through your work day and your team work.

    Pros

    Growing Co. There is much growth opportunity since they are still opening stores. Since Sally has many locations you have the opportunity to transfer.

    Cons

    Long retail hours. Open on holidays. Work/life balance not always possible especially during the Christmas season. Pay is not always competitive.

    Advice to Management

    No advice
