Pros

The people in the lawrenceville/ princeton nj location are great, large amount of staff, tons of walk ins, able to transfer when moving and not having to look for a new job, good way to build a local clientele, fast paced.

Cons

terrible base pay, terrible insurance, NO HR DEPARTMENT, clueless payroll department, upper management doesn't care, they pretty much own every chain hair establishment short of the hair cuttery.

Advice to Management

I wish the head of the company would see how evil some of their district managers are, and how they abuse their power.

    Pros

    If you are fresh out of cosmetology school and the ink just dried on your license, this is a great place to hone your skills. Then you can take the skills you honed and go somewhere else to make a decent living. Along the way you will work next to some really kind stylists, build some clientele consisting of kind, decent customers.

    Cons

    Low/no staff, unstable hours/schedule, unlivable wages, run down salons, lack of customers, CEO and board members making too much money, horrible reputation as a company making it extremely difficult to get talented stylists to work for us. If they are talented and hire in, they will leave quicker than you can blink. This is a despicable company and it will soon be out of business.

    Advice to Management

    You should count your blessings that your smartstyle employees haven't joined the Walmart employees to organize a union for livable wages. Or joined the fast food strikes calling for a higher livable wage. A common argument against the fast food strikes is that the fast food workers are not qualified to make $15 an hour since they perform unskilled work. Well, your stylists are licensed professionals who make LESS than fast food workers. Therefore they have more reason to strike/unite for higher livable wages, right?

    Pros

    i realy cant think of a pro. Ive had nothing but issues with this company since i started there. Thats why they have a high turnover with stylist. If you can sell thousands of dollars a month in extra services and retail you will do fine here. They will value you if you can achieve the ridiculous goals they set for your salon. They will even tolerate you stealing and altering your timecard as long as you can sell sell sell for them. But if your an honest person trying to do the right thing you are not valued at all. There mission statement is a joke because they dont follow it.

    Cons

    Pay rate is horrible and commission is a joke. I advised those that are stylist to stay away. Nine out of ten stylists are miserable there.

    Advice to Management

    Know what your talking about before you advise your stylist. District leaders should be there to help the stylists not yell at them.
