    I worked at Sally Beauty full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The entire business is transforming as the world around us changes: consumer habits, technology, distribution methods, etc. The reinvestment into the business is catapuling us into the next era of beauty, and it is exciting.

    Cons

    For many years, the organization forwent the invenstment strategy and just maintained status quo, focusing on the core business, but nothing to drive innovation. We're paying the price now, and it comes with a large price tag.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to reinvest. Breed transparency and one version of truth. Debate the tough issues, but align in the end and go one direction. Foster an exciting, innovative, and accountable management team with ownership a priority.

    Former Employee - Sales Associate/Cashier in Madison, MS

    I worked at Sally Beauty part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great part time job for a student wanting to make extra cash. Busy all day, so the day flies bye. You don't need a gym membership, cause you'll lose weight always running up and down the aisles. They award monthly sales points when you sell key products. You can cash them in for items in a catalog. The items can range from gift cards, designer purses to big screen tvs.

    Cons

    You rarely get a raise. The manager has control over changing your hours in the computer. So if they want to stay within their budgeted amount of hours for the week, they may adjust when you clocked in and out. Not much room for advancement. The managers are the ones that get the bonuses when the entire sales team did the work. It's rare that you'll ever get a break, but they'll make you write on the time sheet that you took one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer shared bonuses for the sales teams who make all of their sales goals. The manager didn't do the work alone. In some cases, the manager sat in the office txting people while her team did everything. This is why there is so much turnover in these stores. Don't give the manager the power to change an employees hours in the computer.
