    I worked at John Paul Mitchell (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good location, easy commute. Some of the staff were sincere team players. This made working there a little bearable. Loved the students.

    Cons

    School's esthetics program has potential, however poor leadership. Students education does not come first, sad to say, but very true. The students invests too much to not get the quality of education that they were told they would get. If you're in this for just a pay check then you may fair well, but if you're passionate about what you do and the quality of education you give then your frustration is imminent.

    Advice to Management

    Not even sure that management will listen. Too many great instructors have left because of the poor leadership. Nothing's changing

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, team building is fun if you get along with team members, getting to know/mentor the students

    Cons

    A little hard to create friendships with learning leaders, training are those rainbow-sunshine-we-are-all-dreamers kind of training, drama

    Your staff know the in's and out's of what actually goes on. They experience it first hand. Listen to them. They matter.

    Pros

    The Paul Mitchell culture is amazing. The energy at the school is really what had me excited everyday while working there. If you are looking to work in the Cosmetology industry, Paul Mitchell schools is great for growing as an educator, support staff, management or learning more about the industry itself.

    Cons

    The pay is ok. corporate changes occur frequently with revisions to school procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Definitely listen to your team member's suggestions. They are the in's and out's of the school and flow with the traffic of education, learning and guest services. They are the eyes and ears of what works and what doesn't.

    I worked at John Paul Mitchell full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If your looking to further your education in the beauty industry this is a great way to go. I went in as a regular cosmetology graduate, and in a short period of time I was given the opportuniy to become an instructor and i did it!

    Cons

    It is very involved and you can find yourself working without a day off for a week r two depending on how busy the schedule of events is.

    Pros

    If you want to work in a place full of drama and unprofessional people you're in the right place

    Cons

    Everything was a con. No structure, no leadership, no real management, everyone that's hired on in every single department is not properly trained. If you're promoted within the company count on teaching yourself and getting paid very little for all of your hard work and effort

    Advice to Management

    Sell the school to owners who care more about their school than their appearance and fancy things. Fire half of the staff and hire new employees who care Get a new director!! Not one who's been promoted and demoted several times.
