    Pros

    Salon chain, guaranteed clientele, bonus every month if the shop makes its goal.

    Cons

    Have to work long hours, the pay isn't that great for being the manager

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to keep managers pay them like your other salon chains, not a dollar more a hour when you work on a sliding pay scale and don't see a difference in your pay check.

    stylist in the salons treated bad but stylist brings in the money. with out stylist there would be no company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there is a need of respect for the stylist. stop punishing stylist for a non busy salon, advertise more. please move into the present and strive for the future

    I worked at Regis Corporation

    Pros

    The technical staff was very friendly and easy to work with. They want to do a good job. The company provides free lunch food though many employees go out.

    Cons

    Managers did not hesitate to lie. They used software illegally. The CEO receives a large bonus that does not depend on how well the company does.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire, don't fire, the people who understand the business.

    Current Employee - Stylist

    I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I really do not have many positive things to say anymore...new policies and protocols in recent months have really impacted the overall working experience here

    Cons

    Where to start?
    poor commission pay, expensive benefits, no incentive for long term employees, not enough staff, turning away clientel, optimized scheduling worst idea ever for walk in salons, poor management if any at all, micromanagement from higher ups, no set schedule for stylists with clientel, working every weekend, no accomadations or flexibilty with scheduling, unsafe working conditions, ect....ect...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come into some salons, stand behind a chair, work alone in a salon...just for one day....Improve the scheduling system because all the market analysis and research you did was a waste of time figuring out your new "optimized scheduling"...it doesnt work in a walk in salons..You will never generate new business by having one stylist on shift, turning 15 to 20 people a shift away because of long wait times...LISTEN to your stylists as we are the ones working hard making YOU money!! Give some better incentives to work for you because after 10 years of this nonsense (as a manager and stylist) Im ready to walk WITH my clientel that I earned and brought into YOUR business!

    Pros

    Offers lots of opportunities for advancement. Opportunity to build and create relationships with people that work at the HO and in other states.

    Cons

    Regis used to be a family based company. It provided hardworking people growth opportunities. Since the addition of new CEO in 2012 things have gone south. They have laid of long term field staff, whole departments, and salon employees. These come without any prior notice. They promise employees better paying jobs, better incentives, and more opportunities for advancement. None of these are ever full-filled. They always expect and want more but never provide the resources to make it happen!! Rarely are you provided with feedback on performance improvement. Currently they are again restructuring! I say again because they had a restructure in 6/2012.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you say something then do it! If you make it a priority to "be the employer of choice" then be the employer of choice. Cutting costs isn't about hiring unqualified people for jobs to pay them less.

    I worked at Regis Corporation part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Regis owns many concepts, so there is a variety of salons that you can transfer to throughout the company and world. Continuing education is great when provided.

    Cons

    Many concepts have a quantity far out ways quality sort of practice. Even when speed is not specifically stated in job requirements. Average pay for the same position in the same City is $3-4 lower than comparable business. Only promotions available require moving to commission before being considered. Benefits are nearly equal to paying for private personal insurance. Laws are often overlooked and those who point out the mistakes so improvements can be made find themselves with less hours and far less leeway than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the quality of the services being rendered rather than how fast a customer is moved out of the salon. More strongly enforce area supervisors following labor and discrimination laws.

    Pros

    It was an easy going place. Love the people I worked with and the clients. Had lots of fun.

    Cons

    Your commission is %40. yes you can make 45% and 50% but it's hard because you share the work with so many other workers. 40% is a complete rip off.
