    I have been working at Drybar part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Community email to pick up or drop shifts, super fun atmosphere, DJ on the weekends, always like a party, great upper management.

    Cons

    If you want hours YOU have to get them, you have to pick up shifts, which can sometimes be annoying and if you're not super motivated, you wont make a lot of money.

    I have been working at Drybar full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a great company to work for, everyone is really nice and the company culture encourages your own personal style. Work hours are flexible if you want to come in earlier/later. The company makes it easy for you to ease in and learn.

    Cons

    Open concept office means it can get hectic and loud from time to time, there are also a lot of activities that happen during the day. Can definitely get distracting but I haven't had a huge problem with it.

    I have been working at Drybar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Energetic, can make clients long term. If you market yourself, you’re always going to be booked and busy.

    Cons

    Not enough staff to accommodate need for vacation. Need to allow for internal contributions to evolve the company. Most of directorial management are not diverse and the staff at shops are. The brand is thriving, but some shops need revival.

    Advice to Management

    Flexibility will keep your staff. Overworking will not allow them to last. Properly announce new management for easier transitions with teams. Have team meetings

    Former Employee - Stylist in Marina del Rey, CA

    I worked at Drybar part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The connections you make with your coworkers as well as your clients are immense. You gain clients by offering them services outside of thermal styling and your loyal clients will follow you wherever you go after you grow. Finding coverage for emergencies were almost never an issue. CASH TIPS!!!

    Cons

    There were sometimes no breaks or lunches due to the high turnover rates. Your hands will ache like crazy after more than 2/3 years, self care is a must!!!

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Drybar full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is super friendly and helpful. Flexible hours. Great training. 40% discount on products.

    Cons

    $8.50/hr, and they sometimes send you home early if it’s dead; so your paycheck isn’t always going to be the same. You only receive commission for selling products, not for clients.

    Advice to Management

    You’re doing amazing!
