Fun and great place to work!

Store Manager (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

I have been working at Sally Beauty full-time for more than a year

ProsMany incentives, bonuses, holidays paid, closed early compared to other retail stores. Great support from upper management and many opportunities to grow and advance within the company.

ConsSometimes we're short handed and can be tough getting help from another store.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo those who is currently working at Sally and those who resigned...stop bad mouth the company!!! If you are so miserable of the place you work at, the management, the employees,the salary, and everything else in general then why are you still there?!!!!!

Those who resigned or got terminated...perhaps you are not doing your job at work and thought maybe you can just come to work, do nothing and get a quick paycheck, right? Wrong, that's why you are where you are in life with no advancement, and no opportunity to be anything important in life!!! Perhaps you should turn all your negative thinking into a positive one.

I love working there.

Store Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Sally Beauty full-time for more than a year

ProsLove the free products, rewards, etc. Exciting to see new trends, etc.

ConsStaffing, if someone is sick really no one else to call to come in when the store has minimal hours aloud. Wish we had more hours, sometimes working alone can be a huge challenge to complete tasks, and offer exceptional customer service, but we still try :)

Advice to Senior ManagementI believe they do an excellent job with communicating with all Sally employee's, I believe they go above, and beyond.

I have been working at Sally Beauty part-time for less than a year

ProsI enjoy working here because it gives you a lot of information on all of the products they have to offer. I'm very happy here.

ConsI don't really have any complaints about working here. The salary is good, the managers, the coworkers, all of it! I'd even consider it a learning experience.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be so picky about how many hours are handed out to the employees.

Perfect

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Denton, TX

I have been working at Sally Beauty full-time for more than 10 years

ProsSally has been a stable company during the recession, experiencing growth when most retailers were flat or losing ground. Sally has been seeing fantastic growth lately and has great opportunities for advancement. The corporate headquarters is a beautiful building with a great cafe. Very impressive to walk into the visitors lobby.

ConsI don't have anything negative to say. Great place to work.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing. Sally is growing every year as could be just a few years away of breaking into the fortune 500.
