    Pros

    The company pays for training discounts on services and products whic are salon and professional quality and it also allowed to meet people and build a diverse clientele

    Cons

    It's corporate and clients take advantage and always try to receive free services at stylist expense although they receive excellent service

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more color classes for stylist so everyone is on the same level

    Great benefits and great discount

    Cons

    Small company with little growth makes it hard to move up and further your career at a reasonable pace. Also, associates are under paid.

    Pros

    Upbeat, positive environment to work in. They really value excellent customer service, so you are well trained and gain knowledge to the latest products. Co-workers there were all so friendly and helpful. You really feel like part of team there.

    Cons

    I was not given much schedule flexibility. Also, I am not sure if they even offer raises there. However, it was a fun part time job to have.

    Pros

    50% off salon or spa services
    25% off products
    Co-workers are okay
    401k
    Nothing else really. There aren't any pros except those.

    Cons

    Everything else, they don't pay you anything and management is horrible. If you do something wrong they won't tell you till a month later or till corporate office gets on the managers back to fix it. They tell you lies constantly. Everybody is fake and I hate it! With promotions you can forget about that! They would rather hire somebody new and promote them before they promote somebody that's been there for a while. They are messed up and have a long way to go before they become a good company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to get it together they don't do anything but sit in the office and talk crap about the other workers there. Actually do work and try to fix the company..

    I worked at Beauty Brands full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Clients are fun, everyone loves beauty, discount on salon services, flexible schedules! Wide variety of products, good training, beautiful stores, make-up section a plus! I loved answering the phones at the desk the best, scheduling clients & being the hostess of the check-in was the best but it doesn't pay the bills so promotion was inevitable. Still got to do the desk but just not as often due to other managerial obligations.

    Cons

    Must work holidays and weekends. Lots of lifting during big sales events like, hairspray sale, liter sale. etc. These are annual sales & those days can take a toll on your body.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-life balance would be nice to see the business closed for more holidays. It seems all retailers are out to make that $ at the cost of the staffs work-life balance. Executives get holidays off but we have to work just because we are the retail staff. Seems to me that executives could help out in store during holidays & lend a hand. Or even during the annual sales events when there is so much extra work to be done. Budget in more PAYROLL, every retailer should look to do the same. If you want to provide the BEST experience for your clients & have all the operational tasks completed so your stores look amazing & are eye-pleasing to the clients you really need to give more PAYROLL $ at the store level!

    Pros

    They give salon staff a lot of freedom to move up and receive free training. Management does all they can to help promote and retain business.

    Cons

    The appearance of the store is dated. Management changes frequently and a lot is expected of them. Coupled with the store aesthetics, the retail staff could be more professional in appearance. I believe the clientele would take the stylists, estheticians, and make up artists more seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop changing the rules so frequently and listen to your staff at the very bottom.
