Pros

if you like to cut, this is for you, dont expect much support or reward beyond getting paid. Things are discussed enthusiastically or as if very important but not followed through on.

Cons

no regular schedule, no support from uppers when you are trying to accomplish what you are told to do. The pay is low, and you can make thi sup in tips, but the bonus program is set up for failure an the standards to make a bonus are constantly revised to make it harder.

Advice to Management

care about getting things done that affect other people. Do what you say you will, be a person of your word. If someone brings up a subject, assume it is important. Take care of your GOOD employees, not your problem and whining employees. Your good employees will stay longer if you treat them fairly, and not treat your problem employees better than you do them.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules make it easy to balance other responsibilities

    Cons

    The 13-15 minute haircut time limit is hard to achieve especially when doing women's hair.

    Advice to Management

    Extend the haircut time limit to have a better quality cut.

    Pros

    All depends on your current salon manager, most only hire inexperienced managers for cheap salary.

    Cons

    sell,sell,sell RETAIL!!!!! Push product, and not good quailtly services!! I always thought a first rate haircut would bring a a return customer, not a crappy shampoo.

    Advice to Management

    Do for your staff,as you expect them to do for your company. Offer an occasional weekend off??? Don't work us every Saturday, all day. If you want your staff to work it, maybe management should too.
