Negative Outlook

I worked at Carlton Hair part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great education classes for stylists
They pay for salon supplies
They give product comission to salon coordinators
They have a yearly hair show
You get your hair done for free

Cons

You're just a number to them.
I was unfairly made to quit my job because apparently working for a makeup company & Carlton Hair was a "conflict of interest" when other employees were working for the same makeup company & Carlton Hair and they were never asked to quit or let go. I'm sure that's valid for a law suit.
They stress their stylist to unbelievable levels.
Stylist end up taking home more than half less money than they really made.
I used to love my job so much at Carlton, until they changed management.
They book you clients by how much product you sell. You don't sell their product, you don't get busy and you don't get promoted.

Advice to Management

Be aware of what really goes on in salons. Artists work so hard, and they are under appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and meet half way instead of demanding them to sign contracts with company

    I worked at Carlton Hair full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Education program, medical/dental/vision benefits, nice locations, high end product, free hair services, opportunity to build clientele

    Cons

    You are only a number at Carlton. It doesn't matter if you are friendly, good at your job, and show up on time. If you don't hit their sales goals and sell product you are nothing to them. Extremely hard to get promoted. No hourly pay raises. The front desk gets hourly, paid vacation, and commission. Stylist gets 35% of first $675 they sell, 41% anything after up to $1500. Climbs up after that, but this is on a weekly basis. Horribly unflexible schedule. No discounts for customers or family members. Front desk is documenting you constantly and will complain about you to management so they will get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    A little praise and thank you go a long way. District leader is pretentious, rude, terribly offensive.
