    Pros

    My aunt helped me to get a job. I loved the environment, discounts, free hair cuts. Pay was minimum wage.

    Cons

    Favoritism amongst employees. Pay employees better. Offer some type of benefit to employees. Change operating hours.

    Pros

    Cool coworkers, clients, manager is flexible with schedule, hsa training was fun and simple, cutting technique is simple

    Cons

    No stability with hours, not much growth opportunity and pay past manager in a salon, you pretty much do the same haircut technique on most clients which gets boring, lack of creativity and styling

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    market your services to all ethnicities and textures. Advertisement mainly attracts straight haired white men and women

    Good company to work for, just not for long-term

    Former Employee - Hair Stylist in Murfreesboro, TN
    Former Employee - Hair Stylist in Murfreesboro, TN

    I worked at Supercuts full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good job for a recent graduate from cosmetology/barber school, compensation is hourly plus tips, commission off product sales and color services, flexible with scheduling

    Cons

    Poor management, doesn't care about clients, only about daily sales, high turnover rate, poor training and leadership skills, commission earned should be more especially for color services

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start training your employees about time management while also giving quality services
