    "Dangerous Company!"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Esthetician in Boston, MA
      Doesn't Recommend
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Miniluxe full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      There are absolutely no pros for working at this company whatsoever and all of the reviews on here with positive experiences are written from corporate or people who work there who are told to do it while their bosses watch... I’ve seen it firsthand.

      Cons

      They have many open court cases from employees. Look them up! This place is a sweatshop. What they do is hire a mixed crowd, and only give the top positions to white staff who play their dirty game. When they give a position of “power” to a staff member who is not white, it is simply to be the scapegoat. They paid me $17 and hour and I later found out that the majority of the white staff in my same role were making min....

      Advice to Management

      Throw your whole company away! You all are a disgrace and I’m not sure how you are getting away with this or sleeping sound at night but everything done in the dark comes to light. I hope your company tanks because you do not deserve to thrive and step on the backs of your hardworking employees.

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

      Pros

      I have been working full time as a Studio Director in Boston for almost 2 years. After reading a lot of the reviews for the company, I felt I needed to set the record straight. This job, just like any position here or anywhere, is exactly what you make of it. I have hustled and worked hard, and it has paid off. They have given me 2 generous pay increases in less than 2 years, as well as great and fair bonus potential....

      Cons

      As a Studio Director, sometimes your work/life balance can be difficult. It takes a lot of work to get the proper team in to place, and get them feeling empowered and confident when you are not present. Since it's the service industry, the hours can be daunting. Especially working a lot of "bank holidays" that most people have off. Clients can be trying and very demanding, and it takes confidence and a tough skin...

      Advice to Management

      My advice is to possible future employees- take all reviews with a grain of salt. Frustrated people lash out, and many people expect the grass to always be green somewhere else. As they say- the grass is green where you water it. I am watering mine every day- are you willing to water yours? If you are, you will be rewarded and successful.

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Miniluxe full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Getting your nails done for free... Literally, that's it.

      Cons

      Inexperienced management, catty environment, unorganized, communication is poor. Everyone in management and upper management preaches a positive "girl power" type of environment, but no one actually lives that way. Lots of judgment, cattiness, etc.

      Advice to Management

      Hire better managers.
