A company that like many others does not appreciate their employees.

I worked at Toni & Guy full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

great FREE continued education. Being in a mall you are surrounded by all walks of life, so I will say that with the versatile clientele really prepares you for anything. It's a nice place to start out for the previous reasons.

Cons

This company has gone down hill thanks to corporate greed. They do not care about the employee individually. It makes no difference to the company to have 30 stylist/chem techs working on 100 clients a day, or if they have 100 stylist/chem techs working on 100 clients a day, because the company is still getting their cut of it all (which when i worked there was a 60/40 their advantage... this is of course after they take out the 5$ product fee. Lets say I charge 60$ for a women's haircut, subtract 5 dollars for product fee-$55 now let T&G take their 60% which would be 33$, and the stylist takes home 22$ Making it hard to make a decent living. It is more about quantity over quality, when it should in fact be the opposite. When I left the company in Jan 2010, I put in notice and tried to go about everything the right way. Unlike a lot of other staff that were planning to leave and take their clients with them. They still refused to give me my vacation pay, and whomever I spoke with about it (I can't remember who it was, but I think it was someone in payroll.) was extremely rude and made me feel like an idiot when I tried to do right for the company. I would only refer someone to this company, if they are just starting out and needing some expirience, and education.

All this being said, The company could have changed a lot since i've quit a few years ago. I don't know anyone who still works for them to have any insight.

    I worked at Toni & Guy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I made a lot of money and it was very easy to get clients in the door. The education was awsome,

    Cons

    They expect you to work past hours past your shift as a colorist and you cannot leave even 5 min before your shift is over even if you have no clients. You are expected to go to many many meetings and classes on your time off without pay. They take advantage of you at every turn and have no qualms about firing you at a moments notice no matter how long you've been there or how much you have done or made for the company! They will eat you up and spit you out the second you disagree with anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat your employees like children. Yes, 1/2 the staff is directly out of school, but senior staff does not need micro-managing. Lay off.

    I enjoyed being behind the chair making my clients look and feel good about themselves! In return, it makes me happy!
