    Pros

    Thorough training on hair care, products, and color which is useful for those without cosmetology license. Free products and great employee rewards.

    Cons

    You can't call out without it being an issue, requesting time off is a hassle, low pay even with cosmetology license, sales are confusing to most customers which causes them to make scenes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open minded, you are trying to appeal to those who work in the beauty industry so you should support the appearance of all. Especially with hair.

    Pros

    I really felt like I was helping out my customers, the prices were fair, the products were pretty solid, and the company has a great focus on deals. They really value their professional customers, including beauty school students, but even the non professionals really do get a great deal with the Beauty Club Card (discount card, not a credit card). Monthly free full size products are given to employees to enable them to pitch sales more accurately, from experience. felt like I could stand behind what I did. There are tons of opportunities to move up in the company.
    It's a great job while in Beauty School, or if you are willing to climb to management in a huge way, it is a gigantic commitment. As a temporary position, it was worth while and enjoyable, and a great retail experience, just unreasonably stressful and tiring.

    Cons

    The disconnect between the corporation and the stores was huge, and that led to very unreasonable expectations. Store associates and Store Managers were on the same page usually, but even the district manager was no where near savvy on how to run a store from the inside. This lead to lots of issues. The pay is no where near worth what you are asked to do, even after raises. Manager turn over is high due to huge work load with very little incentive, same for the assistant manager positions. They are exceptionally wasteful, both in shipping and their product disposal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn more about the job you are asking of your in store employees. Increase pay, it will lead to better retention. Screen employees more before higher.
