Pay your dues and get outMay 29, 2021 - Wax SpecialistRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I loved most of my clients. The training was fantastic it made me very good at what I do and some of their patterns are something I still use to this day. And nothing compares to the wax the wax is the best I’ve ever worked with you can’t find anything like it.
The actual company is the worst. You’re expected to be so fast people feel like meat and it’s all about money money money. But none of it goes to us. I made minimum wage which was $13 at the time and tips but of course tips aren’t consistent and it depended on the day. The shifts are only 6 hours but after lunch you only get paid 5.5. There will be hours at a time where you are just sitting around because they’re over staffed always for the possibility of a walk-in but you can’t read a book or be on your phone or you’ll get written up you basically stare at a wall. The schedules are very difficult to change and you have to work either all day Saturday or all day Sunday and that is Non negotiable and it’s a 9 or 10 hour shift on that day depending on the day. HR was a nightmare and you don’t feel valued at all because the turn over is so high in my 10 months there only 1 person still worked there that was there when I started. Overall this is a job that will help you in the long run. A good start for new Estie’s but take it for what it is, learn how to be good at it and get out of there. 100% view it as a pay your dues situation. Greatful for the experience, terrible company and business model.
