    Pros

    Great walk-in clientele, guaranteed base pay, number one in training in the country, opportunity to master every aspect of hair cutting and coloring, quickly, and without having to apprentice under someone for 1+ years

    Cons

    Need a whole focus directed solely on recruiting, hiring and retaining stylists. Stylists are often left feeling unappreciated and replaceable. There should be compensation given and seniority rights to stylists, instead of making them feel like all these years of hard work are not paying off


  2. Busy Salon ok for beginners

    High traffic salons, many walk-ins, no following needed.

    Cons

    Management completely inflexible with schedules.

    Pros

    - Excellent way to break into the IT industry at the Edina corporate office and get your foot in the door/build your Résumé.
    - Lots of potential to gain experience and understand how things work in a corporate environment.
    - Free food in the lunchroom

    Cons

    - Pay is very low compared to the other IT jobs in the area. On average you will make about 20% less than what you normally would from a position requiring the same experience/education.
    - No 401k matching, no short term disability (medical) leave, very little PTO (10 days per year) and health coverage is very poor.
    - This is not a company you should expect to work for in the long haul and retire from due to the major lack of benefits and low pay.

    - The Salon support helpline is heavily micromanaged by the supervisors/team leads and there is extremely high turnover. The helpline is mostly filled with temporary contractors, some of which have little to no experience troubleshooting even basic computer issues. Combining this with the fact that the helpline has never been staffed to acceptable levels, and you have a very high stress environment. Many of the talented employees put in their 1-3 years of experience and move on which is why the average seniority of an employee is barely 1 year.
    - Even some of the most talented employees on the helpline at the bottom rung are not recognized for their performance and are given little opportunity to move up the ladder to new positions.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the bar on hiring standards. Once you have a talented team of employees that is paid well, you won't have to micro-manage them nearly as much resulting in increased happiness and productivity.

    Pros

    I have been working at the company for over 10 years and have had the most amazing career path. Anything is possible with this company, whether you want to work in a salon as a stylist or manager, be in a field leadership position, be an artistic director or work at the home office in a number of different areas- the sky is the limit. The leadership of the company is passionate and driven to focus attention on the most important asset- our stylists. Our stylists are the heart of our company and they are so talented, energetic and passionate.

    Cons

    Not all of our employees have had the chance to meet our amazing COO, Jim Lain, or our CEO, Dan Hanrahan. If you spend even a few minutes with these strong, caring leaders, you will want to work at Regis. They truly care about their teams and the people that make up our company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on the stylists!

    Pros

    Great place to start your career as a hairstylist. Room for growth if you wish to work in the corporate world. Builds a strong foundation of business knowledge. Offers a guaranteed pay, benefits and paid vacation. Lots of people walk through the doors.

    Cons

    I think this is a great place for a stylist starting out since there are so many people who come in. As you grow your business it is very tough to continue to increase your pay through the years as you would in other places.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a better way to compensate successful stylists to hold onto them. The way the company goes starts with the staff. If you give the opportunity for successful stylists to be compensated and shown how much you appreciate them that would go a long way. Plus it gives the others to look up to. Say you have a full book, you can choose your schedule. Stylists want freedom AND structure, being able to balance that as a company would be terrific!

    Pros

    Meeting new people everyday.

    Cons

    Pay is horrible, older salons do not get remodeled. A lot of salons closing. Too much restructing with new CEO in place. Went through so many different RVP's, RD's, and S/DL's. No room for advancement unless you already have the experience for the job you want to be promoted to. They let go a lot of leaders that were loyal the company 20+years when they did not want to retire.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees opportunity to prove their worth when a promotion comes available other than hiring externally. Too many changes have gone on and lack of communication for home office is ridiculous.

    Pros

    Growing company, a lot of opportunities for more responsibility, if you are willing to work outside of your job description a bit it will help in the long term

    Cons

    Poor benefits, no 401k match, lot of turnover in leadership positions, not always willing to spend money on forward-thinking endeavors and tend to favor immediate cost saving solutions
