    Pros

    Good people to work with. Fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Small town culture. About 45 minute commute from Dallas downtown. Competitive culture that doesn't allow for cross-pollination between departments. Denton is a college town. Glass ceilings everywhere.

    Pros

    Great people, great company, very well organized, very focused on success, good communication among different internal IT teams, good relationship with consultants

    Cons

    Growing very fast, potentially too fast, so not easy for IT to keep up with new technologies and synchronize them among all different applications

    I have been working at Sally Beauty

    Pros

    Free products and employee discount. In fact that's where a majority of their money is made.

    Cons

    Little training. Upper management will not communicate and are not helpful. They give store managers very very little payroll hours, so the store manager ends up working nonstop. I have a whole 90 hours and three other employees, besides myself. If one calls in, then I am gaurenteed to work extra and not get paid extra for it. When that happens, store managers end up getting paid less than minimum wage. They also actually asked me to go to Walmart, during the evening hours when their department managers were not likely to be there, and spy on their prices. If theirs were lower, then they wanted me to drop puts by a whopping penny. We don't get paid to sneak around other stores, avoiding their staff so we don't get caught. These are just a few of the many many many issues with Sallys. I gave my two weeks notice and will not be back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't give a store 90 hours but then tell them they can't go below 80. You know that if someone calls in, it is not always possible to get someone else. Actually train your employees. Filling out a little book is not training. COMMUNICATE. I have never drive ppl crazy with questions everyday. However, when I'm told someone will be in touch then I expect them to. It's called respect and caring about the ppl that are actually running your dumb stores.

    Pros

    Room for advancement in the company if you are a hard worker. Decent pay and decent employee perks if you work for them.

    Cons

    They are starting to want people to have cosmology licenses to advance into management. Didn't need that when i started there.

    A good place to be, some room for advancement.

    I worked at Sally Beauty

    Pros

    Not a hard company to work for, rarely heavy lifting. They give a good discount to employees and offer incentives for selling certain items. If you enjoy the beauty industry then you'll enjoy chatting with customers about products. You see many customers regularly (professionals, salon owners, etc) and build a good relationship with them.

    Cons

    There is room for moving up the ladder but be prepared with chapstick for all the butt-kissing. Customers can be argumentative over products, prices, the effects of those products. Policies change constantly and aren't evenly enforced. Overall, if you can keep your head down, avoid drama and do your job, this place isn't bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you started as a sales associate, don't forget your roots. When you're making rules, handing down a task or critiquing an associate, ask yourself how you'd feel if someone was saying it to you. If you were hired as a manager, DM or TM, do the job an associate does, try doing it with no executive decisions, overriding, giving perks out. Appreciate what your associates do at ground level and try to help them. Remember that someone else may sign your checks but if you have a team under you that loves what you do and would go to bat for you, you'll have a stronger store. Team loyalty and cohesiveness is the secret to success.

    Pros

    Making people feel beautiful, helping blah blah blah

    Cons

    You get accused of theft daily, drawer shortage, overage, you can't count ... Doesn't matter it's your fault and you must be a thief . Micromanaging is ludicrous . Boss changes rules constantly . My boss did not care that my grandma died , she ridiculed me the day I found out she died, the day before the funeral I came to work and she scolded me . You are paid minimum wage to be responsible for lots of money , etc . Constant gossip everyone gossips ... I quit yesterday

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get cameras in your store. Modernize your registers, get corporate emails for your hr. Get with the times .

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

    Pros

    Occasionally receive free items to try. Employee discounts are decent.

    Cons

    They will hire you as part time and demand you have completely open availability. Will call you in on day off and scold you if you can't make it in. No health benefits because they only hire people on as part time and then make them work full time hours. Strict sales goals.
