    I have been working at Beauty Brands full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are great, continuing education opportunity’s for stylists, as well as added contests recently. Can see the direction the new leaders are trying to go!

    Cons

    Being with this company for 3 years the biggest con is the pay scale. We CANT keep good help paying less than McDonald’s.

    Second, inventory levels... don’t run promotions on items we don’t have in store.

    Advice to Management

    PLEASE increase your pay scale for retail associates including managers. We stay because we love it and want to make a beautiful difference but barely make ends meet. Good help and good staff morale is hard to maintain at $7.50 for the workload and hours necessary.
