    I worked at European Wax Center part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed interacting with customers, their up-to-date system on Millennium where you do everything online, free waxes, discounts on products, and the relationships with my co-workers

    Cons

    High turnover rate, they would call me last minute to have you work, even if you say your busy they guilt trip you.

    Pros

    Consistency, Excellent Brand Awareness & Marketing Strategies. They are effective communicators and have regional coaches to help when issues arise. Designated Managers assigned to each center. As a payroll manager, hourly pay is VERY decent for those who work hard to meet their goals. National competitions for high performers etc.

    Cons

    Company does not offer corporate benefits, such as Medical, Dental or Vision. That is decided by individual franchisee. However, shift times are very accommodating to having a family and balancing everything. Most centers have reduced hours on Sundays and are open 8-8 rather than 10 pm or later.

    Pros

    Tips
    nice friendly staff
    nice guests
    for the most part we had set schedules

    Cons

    hourly pay
    manager
    owner of franchise
    push products to the point where guests don't want to return or prebook
    manager would change hours and schedule daily
    manager was not professional nor was she qualified to be a amanager
    cheap guest
    slow at new locations
    marketing
    low on staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let your emotions take over your work . Be professional at all times not just when customers are around. Putting a product on the counter for every guest is not going to make them buy it if anything it makes them even more annoyed.

    Pros

    great training, great support, easy to start earning more quickly than a lot of salons. Fun, laid back work environment.

    Cons

    it's a franchise, so if your owner is no good, you might have a bad time working here. a lot of the negative reviews I read have a lot of problems that seem to stem from a particular store manager, rather than the corporation itself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate should make insurance available to franchise locations and monitor managers better. Bad management should be accountable to corporate. I love my manager, but if I didn't I would have no where to go to about the issue, as she owns the store.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Good company. Great hours and bonuses. It is amazing to have people feel so beautiful. It does not always feel like you are working, because the job is such a good place to grow and the customers are great.

    Cons

    I don't really have any negatives. Its a great company. There are just so many stores opening up all over that it can be harder to get the new clients in a specific center.

    I have been working at European Wax Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The wax is amazing and once a guest tries the wax center they refer friends and help you build your business. Most money I've made at a salon/service job. Not a catty environment. Ability for growth. The hours are nice - not open too late or too early. The online booking is very easy for guests, especially those who are a little shy about their waxing.

    Cons

    Unable to see book at home, not a big deal but it would be nice to know what you're walking into for the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your team positive!
