Pros

guaranteed money irreguardless of hair done. walk thru traffic in a mall setting. product samples provided by companies to get us to sell their product. clippers and combs generally provided as are chemicals.

Cons

payscale. if you don't make your quota amount, you get around $7/hr. I got paid more at a grocery store..... no skill set, licensing and continued education hours required. to take your continued ed, you have to fight to get a day off. nil chance of advancement. "personal performance appraisals" were a joke. they tell you you didn't sell enough product or do enough chemicals to get a 15 cent raise. you are in a cookie cutter salon that looks for cookie cutter hairstylists. if you are funky or have awesome skills they look down on that. you often HAVE to fix someone elses mess for free, rare tips. no plan for employee's to get reduced pain management/prevention care. DM actually told me i should wear heels every day to look classy... On my feet? 7-8 hrs a day? heels? uh-uh. if you leave you CANNOT have your clients... regis COULD sue you.

Advice to Management

offer ALL employees a discount for massage and/or chiropractic to keep them in working condition. product is good to sell, yes, but not all clients WANT that... don't make it mandatory to shove product down clients throats... pay your employees a good wage that reflects their SKILLS like $10/hr or more. this is a high touch profession and requires continued education. offer CEU's in the salon in training and cover it. makes hunting and paying for classes non existent, making happy, non stressed employees. don't insult stylists with nonexistent product commission. pay them well from the start and no commission. get a little more diversified and edgy.

    Pros

    I love the team I worked with, even though we are a team of women, but there were no drama at all. Most of customers are really nice.

    Cons

    Very under-appreciated. Slow POS and booking system. I have no idea who thought of these WIG, 4DX things but it's completely useless and waste of time. HQ ppl think they do these things to motivate staffs but it was the complete opposite.

    The comission system and the pressure from the upper management made it really hard for new stylists, especially ones with no clientele. You start out with lowest price and you made the lowest commission, how are you gonna make it?

    Advice to Management

    Review your pay system and appreciate your stylists more. Don't just say it but show it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff, they know the business and with more support the staff who want to help develop the business and want to progress the company could do well.
