Pros

They have benefits that include paid time off which is rare these days. Also, there are many departments you can move to if you want a change.

Cons

I wish they were more competitive in overall pay rates compared to places like Macy's. I would make it a long-term career if so.

Advice to Management

It would be nice if they had programs to move up within the company. Also, we would like to use the salon if it wasn't so outrageously expensive compared to other salons in the area.

    Pros

    20% off discount for employees which is great Flexible work hours work and life balance New Store clean and nice New equipment

    Cons

    7.25 an hour for salon workers. Salon Receptionist makes at least 8.00 an hour. I currently hold a master cosmetology license. Have been a Stylist for 14 years. Never made such terrible pay. My 2wk check is no more than 200 dollars. I can't pay my bills with this check. Salon manager stresses over you making productivity, if you don't you get a written corrective warning, you told to make at least 11dollars an hour on your productivity, when you make it, you still get a pay of 7.25 an hour. So stupid!!

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay, dont make false promises to employees, treat me as well as the customers. That way i'll be more willing to try and stay with the company. Change your training from customer first to employees are important too.
