Does Sharkey's Cuts for Kids have any sort of mentoring program?

Pros

Working with kids. Technically this counts as receptionist experience. This would be the easiest job in the world if it was structured better.

Cons

No training, lack of communication, dysfunctional. As a receptionist at the Seattle location, my job was mostly just cleaning up after over-scheduled stylists. The work environment was extremely unhealthy; I had to talk with the owner about how it is inappropriate to make jokes to a child about how I can't do my job (starting a game on a console I wasn't familiar with). Gossip was a problem (I mostly saw this with upper management) and one stylist was frequently targeted. The only tips I received were the occasional $5 out of the pockets of a few specific employees (thank you stylists). High turnover rate, rumor has it they went through 7+ receptionists in a year. Cleanliness was definitely an issue: no gloves, no paper towels, barbicide at none of the stations.

Advice to Management

Try openly communicating with employees instead of passive aggressively discussing issues with clients or other employees. Be clear with the job description; I spent 75% of my time cleaning and seating kids; it's not even a receptionist position at this point. Monthly store meetings would help significantly

How is management perceived at Sharkey's Cuts for Kids?

Pros

The location was close to Subway

Cons

Management was unorganized with each other and unprofessional. They would blame me for their miscommunication. Also, when I applied, I disclosed that I could not speak spanish and then they fired me for that reason. Why hire me if you knew that was going to be an issue. They changed my hours every week, first because they didn't know what hours they wanted to open and then because the few stylists that they had were quitting or getting fired. Terrible business, would not recommend working there.
