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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, extra perks from add on sales, monthly contests for prizes. Excellent company to work for. Great recognition for management. Room for advancement. Free monthly products.

    Cons

    Low pay for working lots of hours as manager with very small raises. Team works hard to meet goals w/ just a chance of winning a reward.

    Advice to Management

    Give all your stores the attention they need. Easy to lose great employees due to upper management and lack of attention

    Great environment. Incentives for good sales. Free samples every month to try.

    Upper management was the downfall of my employment. They were far from understanding and only wanted numbers.

    Show a little compassion and treat people better. They are what are driving all of your sales!

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Employee discount, customer service, caring staff, the ability to move up in the company

    Cons

    Verbal abuse from customers, uncaring attitude from corporate, expected to come into work during state of emergencies, little recognition for the hard work you put in, not compensated properly.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that the people who work for you are human and not machines. Care more about those you employee and they'll be more willing to work for you. Also there is a lot of talk about how "we care" and "your safety is most important to us." For the time I worked there I didn't find this to be true.

    Pros

    Busy environment, lots of free products to try, continued training, if you are a manager there are some pretty nice perks, esp. if you have a high performing store, good discount.

    Cons

    Minimum wage - minimal raises over 7 years of employment, road blocks to advancement, "clicky" management, constant disrespect from customers, stores continually getting robbed, employees that work hard get little-no recognition..

    Advice to Management

    Please be respectful toward your employees. They work really hard so that you can go on your trips to Mexico or Jamaica. Be willing to push for success from within.
