I have been working at SalonCentric part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Size, stability and growth potential. Being owned by L'Oreal offers huge advancement potential. Pay is decent.

Cons

Being part of large corporate America, sometimes positions are viewed as numbers not people from "higher ups". Buying up too many smaller companies to fast and not gradually causing a lot of growing pains.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too many changes at the same time. It would be better to put something in place and get really good at it before moving onto the next.

    I worked at SalonCentric (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Employee discounts and normally not having to work Sundays.

    Cons

    Upper Mgmt. has NO respect for employees! Only want empts. to be minions/robots, do not value experience or ideas from long term employees. Only want orders followed from Upper Management who have no clue about the professional hair industry. Care more about how shelving/fixtures look than providing superior customer service. Running off so many long term dedicated employees due to age or personalities NOT given consideration to loyalty or hard work and dedication given.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your Customer, the hair professional AND your long term employees. This is NOT a typical retail industry, customers do not care how the fixtures/signage look! It is about customer service and good sales promotions.

    I worked at SalonCentric as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ample opportunity for those who want to move up. Offer a lot of resources and workplace challenges to make you viable in any job market should you leave.

    Cons

    Big corporation settings are not for everyone and can leave a bit of the tang of commerce's bittersweet kool-aid in your mouth at the end of the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing its giving you a corner on the market.
