I have been working at Sally Beauty part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great perks such as free products, product knowledge (you learn quick) if you work hard they like to promote from within.

Cons

Process of getting promotion is out of control. Training and doing the promoted job without pay for a long time. Loss of communication with higher management and everyone seems burnt out when it really is a fun place to work.

Advice to Management

Treat your good employees with good work ethic appropriately. Pay better wages and keep everyone well informed instead of getting upset when things are not done properly.

    I have been working at Sally Beauty full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Get to work with cosmetics and beauty supplies. Get a fair discount on merchandise.

    Cons

    All the responsibility for the fiscal well-being of the store with no real authority to do anything about it. I cannot hire, fire, or discipline employees for unacceptable behaviors or work ethics, determine which products sell well and feature complimentary products to them, determine the inventory needs of my store, or any other essential function necessary for my store to increase its revenue base without consulting some know-nothing higher-up with no in-store knowledge on which to base their in-store decisions.

    Advice to Management

    It might behoove you to hire women to head the company and men to work at the retail level, rather than the opposite, which is how the company is currently structured. Perhaps then you might have a clue as to how to market to your base demographic.

    Pros

    -Free products monthly
    -Rewards bonuses by selling certain products

    Cons

    -Pay
    -Not enough hours
    -Poor training
    -no advancement
    -employees are just a number (my manager is horribly rude to customers yet still works there because her numbers are decent)
    -computer systems are terribly old! no scanners, no debit, need to call up a number if a customer forgets their membership card.. its 2012 people!!

    **If you do not know much about hair color (did not go to beauty school), helping customers with haircolor can be tricky! need to know about toners, bleach, what base to use to certain colors out of hair..and customers will come back and complain that they're hair did not come out how they wanted. if you know about haircolor then great!

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like they matter!
