  1. Dead end job. Promotions from within make way less than hires off the street for the same job.

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Easy to master. They actually take phenomenal care of the animals.

    Cons

    Maximum of fifty cent raises from within. Meaning, if you're moving up from Sales Expert to a department manager, the MOST you can receive is a fifty cent raise. I've literally seen people get hired off the street make two dollars more for the same position with the same level of experience. DEAD END JOB. No room for advancement unless you're willing to work on next to nothing. To be eligible for corporate jobs or higher end jobs, you have to be a store manager first. And, if you take minimum raise plus a few fifty cent raises, you can't live on that anyway. I have my Bachelor's. They could care less as far as the job opportunities (or lack thereof) are concerned. Numbers matter more than employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation to current employees. After all, it is cheaper to keep current employees than to hire new ones.


  2. It was good for a while

    Pros

    I love the girls I work with in the salon, we are like a family. Most of the other managers are great. Best I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    They have a hard time competing for pay with their #1 competing company. I am only getting paid about $8 an hour as the salon manager but do make 60% if there is the business that I make more commision than I would hrly.

    Advice to Management

    Better hrly pay and better vacation comp
