    Pros

    Great coworkers, train you well on products, 50% off services and 25% off products! So many samples to try, easy to trade shifts, store manager was very understanding and wants you to succeed, managers made it fun to try to reach sales goals

    Cons

    I felt underpaid for all of the work I did

    Advice to Management

    Employee reviews more often for more raise opportunities or higher raises, corporate should inform the stores better about new products coming to store and when; corporate should make all sales consistent for all stores and online; corporate should let stores know making big changes- for example the online salon gift certificates

    Pros

    Very easy and laid back environment with lots of fun people and products.

    Cons

    The business has switched hands in the last year or so and since then, they seem to care less about both the employees and the clients. All they care about is the bottom dollar.

    Advice to Management

    There are ways to grow the company without losing your original "family business" mindset. Don't forget about the people who work hard for you and the clients they interact with each day.


  7. Fun, growing, and family like company!

    Pros

    Benefits & family like environment. New owners taking company in a positive direction. Constantly new and exciting changes.

    Cons

    Low salary for management. Expecting a lot of work for little pay.

    Advice to Management

    High turnover in management due to lack of experience and low salaries. I would consider changing manager salaries to fit the expectations needed from corporate.

    Pros

    Uhm, free products? Sometimes. That's it. I literally have nothing else good to say. Stress is awful, just everything is awful.

    Cons

    The customers are awful vicious women, all they care about is getting the lowest price and if you don't have the authority to give them good discount, they will go to corporate and corporate will come chew you out because they lost one customer? Over 7 billion people in this world, and they will chew you out for losing one person. They don't pay you enough to deal with women like that. 7.25 an hour as an 18 year old just doesn't work. Their prices are ridiculously high. One liter of purOlogy cost more than what I make on an 8 hour day. And we sell a lot of those. So I think they can afford to pay us what they don't. The turn over rate is crazy, the longest person working there besides the mangers(which are 3) has only been working for 4 months and hates it. My GM WAS AN AWFUL PERSON! She needs people to work, but doesn't want to treat them right. Me and 3 other girls think corporate needs to get rid of her for good. It'd be different if they paid you $10 an hour because atleast you can afford to live. I can't afford to live and I have school to do. They act like they should come first in your life even though they treat you horribly. They also bring down your self esteem by telling you that you need to wear something different and put on makeup. Are you calling me ugly and telling me I don't have good fashion sense. So goodbye beauty brands! I will not miss you.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect, pay us more, and when customers are awful, stick up for us
