    I worked at Carol's Daughter

    Pros

    Gratis was always great. We're able to learn about natural hair and which products are used.

    Cons

    The management especially HR was all over the place. Everyone is in this business for themselves which is why 5 out of 7 stores were shut down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring about the customers and your employees more!

    I worked at Carol's Daughter full-time

    Pros

    Carol's Daughter has many loyal customers who have their favorites and will always come back.

    Cons

    -Horrible turnove rate,a year or less
    -Corporate doesn't implement rules, when they do its flexible for everyone and even customers
    -Terrible management
    -No unity within the place of business nor at corporate
    -Excuses for minor things that should be fixed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who are qualified and capable of doing the job on a corporate level and a store level. Also maintain a line of communication and understand that the company could be successful but without loyalty to employees on all levels it will never be calm and happy workers to equal more profit and ideas.

    I worked at Carol's Daughter part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Loyal customers (which helps a lot), small locations, popular products, good communication between stores, small company, easy access to upper management

    Cons

    not enough coverage, high turnover, horrible management, disorganized, no corporate support, disrespect from management, no free/ personal time, no opportunity for advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect is important in running a business. Treat your employees with respect. Respect the fact that they have outside lives. Upper management also needs to follow this as well. They need to listen more to the sales associates that work in the stores and stop playing favorites with the managers.

    I worked at Carol's Daughter

    Pros

    Working for a growing company, its great to be able to think outside of the box and implement your own selling techniques within the store.

    Everyone has the potential to bring outside ideas, and techniques that everyone in the company can learn so that they can become a company standard.

    Cons

    No having a company standard. No standard policies and procedures when it comes to in store practices from returns to processing and entering shipment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement the proper staff into fitting positions. When growing a company, you need to start off buy hiring people in that field first and then find the people from within the field that have the proper credentials. For example, dont hire a Chief of Finance from McDonalds because of his or her finance degree and or experience. Hire a Chief of Finance from Sephora or Body shop.
