Former Employee – worked at Sally Beauty part-time for less than a year
Pros – *Easy Job
Cons – *Needs to keep better check of management
Advice to Senior Management – I worked at a Sally's for about 4 months. I really liked the job, however, the manager was new and young. Instead of coming to employees when she had a problem all she would do was gossip to her employees about other employees, and it got to be really frustrating. I wanted to confront her so badly but my husband and other close family advised me not to do that. And to just do my job the best I can and come home. Unfortunately I didn't leave the job in the right way, i just quit because my husband started a new job, and we had a hard time finding a reliable sitter, so i had to be with my kids. But a few days before i decided to quit i had a last minute issue with my sitter, and wasn't able to come in and work my shift, which was only 4 hours that day..my manager "acted" understanding. Only i found out the very next day from a co-worker that she bad mouthed me the whole time saying "I could have gotten someone to watch my kids" and "my job should be my first priority"..anyhow after that day I had to call out because my CHILD had the flu..Keep in mind I NEVER called out before all of this. My manager seemed ok with it. Well i ended up catching the flu too so i was sick as well. And i never went back. It was just too much for me. I did however apologize to the manager for having to leave so abruptly...she again seemed understanding..then I found out from another co-worker that after I told her I wasn't going to be able to work anymore, she told the other co-workers that "she had already decided to hire someone else and cut my hours".... Anyhow I wish i would have left a 2 weeks notice instead but there're really isn't anything i can do about that. I would just like to say there should be a better way to complain about management because i had a horrible experience. The manager is very immature. As a manager you should always talk to an employee face to face not behind their back to other workers because that will start serious conflict and trouble. . . ALSO when i was hired on, the manager who hired me left, leaving the new manager behind...who in my opinion is no where near qualified to manage a store. I heard so many good things about the previous manager, and had she still been the manager I'm sure my experience would have been 5 stars. So it's not SALLY BEAUTY that made this review negative, it was the particular management experience at the location that I worked.
