    I loved that they gave you the tools to become the best you could be!

    Hair Stylist (Former Employee)
    Kissimmee, FL

    ProsGreat team based company. Everyone works together to not only bring up the stores income but bring up individual income as well.

    ConsScheduling was very hard for me being a mother of 3 and an expectant mother. My location was not very good either and it was very hard to create a following since not to many new people ventured into the hidden store.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Sell! Sell! Sell! Oh, but don't be pushy.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Laurel Springs, NJ

    ProsConstant Walk-ins
    Easy Going
    Free Education
    Work well with schedule (if you are in school, have a child, etc.)

    ConsWill cut hours if you don't sell a certain amount of products
    Management does not manage
    Favoritism is shown towards those who constantly sell products
    Cheap clients

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't make it so obvious that you get some type of bonus if your stylist sell products. We are artist and it's an insult to threaten to cut hours if we don't sell Liter bottles or other products.

    Horrible Untrained Managemant

    Hair Stylist (Current Employee)
    Worcester, MA

    ProsThe Mission Statement Sounds Good But Doesn't Hold True

    ConsUntrained managment and unfair management

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou will lose great stylist based on your untrained management. They have no professional training, look unprofessional. Using cell phones the entire day. Maybe the low wages contribute to this. Management allow stylist to intentionally cheat clients. The salons are a mess and managers are a mess. Its like children playing around in a salon. Seems like HairCuttery is running an unorganized SuperCuts.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
