    I have been working at Carson's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    the Salon is located on the Second Floor of the Carsons Store , At the HIP mall in Norridge IL. All Salon Services provided and vast selections of professional hair care retail is avaliable .

    Cons

    they insist in paying a $8.25 hourly as base pay to the Hair Stylist , When across the street they start base pay for commission stylist at $11.00 , insted of a base pay based on they years of experience and volume of clientele the Stylist brings to the table. (high turnover rate of salon managers).

    Advice to Management

    More support , training , education for the stylist team .the Also need to make a major revamp of the salon , its dated and needs a major facelift or remodel , company allways says its going to happen , in two years im still waiting for it . salon is stuck in the 90's.
