It's a love/hate relationship

Waxing Specialist (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

ProsMake a lot of money right away...the girls at my location get along very well (no drama) personally I'm grossing 35k a year and only work 30 hours a week...I have seniority so I can get away with more. The wax is the best and the products are awesome. Loyal clients, some bring us gifts. even if you work an entire shift without one guest you still make money but not more than $10hr...if you include commission and tips your estimated hourly wage could be $12hr-$36hr (that is the least and most I have ever made but I avg around $20-$25 hr

Consmemorized scripts work well with new guests but I don't want to stick to them when I've been seeing a guest for months or years on end. They keep track of EVERYTHING which is good but if you aren't meeting certain numbers they swear the earth is ending. Getting time off is like a crap shoot...you never kno if you're gonna get it... unfortunately the girls at my location call in sick instead of asking (we all get along so we know whats up but don't rat each other out)
If you want to go to school or get a second job you have to do it quietly because it is against the rules (which I think is illegal)

Advice to Senior Managementstop micro-managing, calm down, really listen and don't pretend to listen...allow us to have second jobs or go to school

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
