    Pros

    I've been with Waxing the City for many years. It's a great place to work, fun environment with great people. Everyone gets along very well, a feeling of family. I've always enjoyed working here and look forward to many more years!

    Cons

    I cannot think of anything negative to say. I think the longevity of the employees speaks volumes! We have at least 5 ladies at our location that have been with the company 5+ years.

    Pros

    Corporate WTC is constantly looking to improve the company and keep it evolving. They set high standards for staff members, from technical esthetician ability to customer service. You could not ask for better management than the Woodbury and Highland Park locations. They genuinely care about their employees. This is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    I have no complaints about the company, or my job at Waxing The City.

    Pros

    I've been with Waxing the City for a little under a year, and it has been the best life-choice I have made in a long time. Everyone that I have met in this company is very supportive and FRIENDLY!

    Cons

    Waxing the City is new to the industry and there is opportunity for acknowledgement.

    Pros

    My experiences with the company have all been great. I have watched WTC grow for the better. They offer paid vacation, health and a dental plan. I also make a decent salary. The owners, my co workers and clients are all amazing.

    Cons

    I think everyone will find something to complain about at any job that they have. At this time I have no complaints about mine.

    Advice to Management

    I feel like upper management is doing a fantastic job.

    Pros

    I've been with WTC for over 4 years and love it! We have an awesome ownership and management team. They really care about there employees. There are many opportunities to grow and be successful. The training is top notch and getting even better! Schedules are flexible and paid time off!

    Cons

    Long days (10 hours) but a short work week (4 days) so it's not really a con... You gotta work hard to be successful!

    Advice to Management

    Keep on, keeping on! We love you guys

    Pros

    The coorperate ownership team is phenomenal. They work well with accomodating employee needs (I go to school and have children, and they are flexible with my schedule each semester), and they are extremely approachable for any and every thing. They also have fun contests for the employees each month, but aren't pushy about anything.

    Cons

    Really the only con is that the salon industry as a whole has slow months, but since that is just a given for our industry... No complaints!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep being awesome!!! I love working for you!

    Positive atmosphere, good hours, compensation is compeitive, management is great, room for career advancement.

    Cons

    As with any service based industry job, there is always the instance of dealing with unhappy customers. Thankfully, this is a rare occurance.

    Pros

    ~flexible schedule ~paid vacation ~supportive environment ~exceptional product ~loyal clientele This is the most talented and amazing group of professionals. There isn't any drama or cattiness like you find in other salons. Management is caring and understanding. Couldn't ask for a better place to build a career.

    Cons

    There are slow periods, as is expected in this industry, but our high season will usually make up for it.

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Paid time off. Work longer days, get more days off. Great commission! Team work AWESOME management and ownership. Opportunity to grow within.

    Cons

    Blackout days, that would not stop me from working here though. I actually make more money during those days anyways.
