    I worked at Hair Club full-time

    Pros

    Able to affect the confidence of many many people suffering from the effects of hair loss.

    Cons

    SO MANY CONS! I don't know how these people sleep at night. In training, you are taught to play up your sexiness to make the men feel even more insecure and less desirable. I was shown how you use the scope for the hair analysis to make them look as if they are losing hair even when they aren't to scare them to death so you can hopefully close them on the spot for one of the HC products. Shameful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You dont care. If you did you wouldn't be part of this side show of making a buck off misfortune.

    Pros

    I able to help people everyday and take such joy in changing their lives. The benefits are very good. Vacation pay and 401K benefits are excellent. The company has very good continuing education.

    Cons

    The pay structure could be better considering the value we bring to the company and clients on a daily basis seems to get over looked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better salaries for stylist

    Pros

    Very competitive compensation and a truly supportive leadership team. A lot of experience is at your disposal to learn from and grow.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities are limited from restructuring of hierarchy as well as limited centers per geographic area. You will most likely have to relocate to move up quickly or at all.

    Current Employee - Image Consultant & National Trainer in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Hair Club full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Hair Club is a Fortune 1000 company that feels like a family owned business. Management truly goes to bat for you to ensure your success. I have made a six-figure income for 9 consecutive years at Hair Club. The best part is the positive change you get to see in the lives of your clients. We help people restore their youthfulness and self confidence.

    Cons

    Working every Saturday from 8-4 is tough, but we are closed every Sunday and Mondays so you get a 2 day weekend & Mondays are great for appointments and errands. The job is very emotional. Hair loss is a very sensitive and emotional subject and insecurity for some people, and they can be very irrational or emotionally reactive while dealing with their fear of change or the unknown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help us sell more surgery since Aderans. Salespeople are happy and will stay only if they are making the money they are used to making and know their talent is worth.

    I worked at Hair Club full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The work/life balance is pretty good. Getting time off as needed is pretty easy as long as it's not Saturday. A majority of the clients are nice people, a few are some of the most interesting people I've ever met and I love talking to them. The job itself isn't too hard and seems easy at first but it takes a lot longer to master than you think. Most coworkers are nice enough, the company does try to promote a family-like atmosphere amongst the staff.

    Cons

    It's the worst job in the place. Very low pay compared to everyone else in the center. You bust your rear end to help coworkers make sales/upgrades/retail goals that they all get comissions on but you get nothing. Your coworkers talk about their beach vacations and new cars while you need food stamps to afford groceries and rely on Section 8 to find an affordable place to live. You can get bullied by coworkers and clients. Very little movement into other positions, you typically have to be with the company for years on very low pay to even be consdiered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at giving admins a bonus for all their help with the center.

    Pros

    With the Barth organization, you are not just thought of as another employee. You are cared about as a person and your assets are valued. You are rewarded for working hard and doing a great job. We work as a team and care about what we are doing and that shows to our clientele. That is why we are the best at what we do!

    Cons

    I have been fortunate to not have experienced and Cons working with this center. The only downside are later hours a few nights a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    promoting from within not only builds morale within the company, but benefits it as a whiole; happy employees equal happy clients
