I worked at Regis Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Offers lots of opportunities for advancement. Opportunity to build and create relationships with people that work at the HO and in other states.

Cons

Regis used to be a family based company. It provided hardworking people growth opportunities. Since the addition of new CEO in 2012 things have gone south. They have laid of long term field staff, whole departments, and salon employees. These come without any prior notice. They promise employees better paying jobs, better incentives, and more opportunities for advancement. None of these are ever full-filled. They always expect and want more but never provide the resources to make it happen!! Rarely are you provided with feedback on performance improvement. Currently they are again restructuring! I say again because they had a restructure in 6/2012.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you say something then do it! If you make it a priority to "be the employer of choice" then be the employer of choice. Cutting costs isn't about hiring unqualified people for jobs to pay them less.

    I worked at Regis Corporation part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Regis owns many concepts, so there is a variety of salons that you can transfer to throughout the company and world. Continuing education is great when provided.

    Cons

    Many concepts have a quantity far out ways quality sort of practice. Even when speed is not specifically stated in job requirements. Average pay for the same position in the same City is $3-4 lower than comparable business. Only promotions available require moving to commission before being considered. Benefits are nearly equal to paying for private personal insurance. Laws are often overlooked and those who point out the mistakes so improvements can be made find themselves with less hours and far less leeway than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the quality of the services being rendered rather than how fast a customer is moved out of the salon. More strongly enforce area supervisors following labor and discrimination laws.

    Pros

    It was an easy going place. Love the people I worked with and the clients. Had lots of fun.

    Cons

    Your commission is %40. yes you can make 45% and 50% but it's hard because you share the work with so many other workers. 40% is a complete rip off.
