    I have been working at European Wax Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    After working in the beauty/customer service industry for 10+ years I have found European Wax Center offers everything a wax specialist or front desk associate would need!

    Pros:
    -Flexible work hours (AM or PM shifts).
    -Only have to work one weekend day so Saturday or Sunday which is amazing in this industry!
    -Benefits (health insurance/dental, IRA, and PTO).
    -Hourly pay and commission
    -No gossip or drama is allowed!! They are serious about creating a great work atmosphere!
    -Most of the staff has been here 3-5 years
    -Company has great packages and products to keep guests coming back!

    Cons

    The only con I could think of was they did not offer health insurance when I first started in 2012. As I mentioned in the Pros, they now offer it to full time associates so this is no longer an issue!

    Advice to Management

    The franchisees for this location are amazing! They take the time to listen to each associate's concerns and care about them on a personal level. Keep up the excellent work!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at European Wax Center (Fredericksburg, VA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Arrived 15 minutes early. Was greeted by manager after initial interview time. Manager asked a few question about me. Then asked for my availability. I told her I was looking for Part time morning work and weekends were limited due to my husbands work schedule.
    They require FT waxers to work 2 opening shifts, 2 closing shifts and 1 saturday or sunday every week and PT waxers is 1 opening shift, 2 closing shifts and 1 saturday or sunday every week. When i told the manager that I have a seasonal job from April through June that would make me unavailable on the weekends she said that if I cant work weekends I'm not a good fit for their company and ended the interview right there.
    The other odd thing about the interview was she kept pushing that their busy times were in the evening so i could make more money if i worked evenings. I had to tell her multiple times I cant work evenings b/c my husband works evening and we have a small child and no childcare options.
