Cons

There were None. Really easy job. Well... minus the fact that you have to wear red scrubs every day.

    I worked at European Wax Center part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -It's a cool place to start your career as an esthetician IF you feel your specialty is in hair removal.
    -Amazing coworkers
    -You get hourly plus commission and tips (good and bad)

    Cons

    -Comission is super low.
    -Hourly is very low, so on a slow day you are making LESS than the legal minimum wage.
    -They pressure you to pressure guests to purchase a product or wax pass
    -If sales quota isn't met you are in danger of losing shifts
    -Sales quota is too high
    -15 minutes for a Brazilian bikini wax is doable, but not on EVERYONE
    -I have had 4 different managers in the two years I have worked there
    -Last manager was culturally insensitive (I guess that would be a personal issue though)
    -Was told by manager that "you are expected to stay in your rooms during free time and practice SCRIPTS"
    -EWC is pretty much a Supercuts for waxing, with that said don't expect such a high class clientele.

    Advice to Management

    To management and corporate:
    Not everyone can make a $4 per person product sale. Some estheticians can't sell as well as others. Same goes with guest services and wax passes. The manager should also be a little more mature and be a little more PC since not every one has the same views on things. Four managers in two years is a bit ridiculous. Maybe you should actually hire someone that's not within the company and has had some experience in management.
