      Pros

      Good sale promotions, good hourly pay, free products to trial. Also, the management was awesome, felt supported and always felt comfortable asking how to improve sales.

      Cons

      The environment itself, with all female employees... it did get a little catty and drama is often an issue.

      Don't do it

      Pros

      You don't have to be on your feet all day and time can pass quickly. Also, you get free time if it's slow

      Cons

      Always understaffed even if there are staff to cover shifts. You'll find yourself trying to stay on script checking people in and out at the same time, calls holding on lines 1-5 and trying to make wax pass sales goals simultaneously (COMPLETELY ALONE). Even if you beg the franchise owner for an extra person at the desk days in advance because you see the books full you still won't get the help. The pay sucks and when you can't sell wax passes because you are too busy trying to keep the front desk from imploding then you get no bonuses. COVID procedures made this all worse and I was ultimately let go for having to quarantine too many times per THEIR CONTRACT I WAS MADE TO SIGN. They're still crying staff shortage to this very day for some odd reason

      Pros

      It is franchisee specific for each individual. My franchisee and District Manager are involved, care and encourage us to be our best. I love coaching and developing my team. They offer benefits and bonuses

      Cons

      Not really any cons. Sometimes work life balance is a struggle but it’s only temporary when this happens.

      Pros

      Every day is different (exciting!) On-going training/education support Goal-oriented environment (great for achiever-types!) Supportive Leadership (easy to talk to) Great compensation/bonus structure Growth opportunities

      Cons

      It is a fast-paced environment being in the beauty industry. We are go-go go, and that can be challenging for some people. Expect to be seeing a lot of guests each shift, and having a goal-oriented work environment.

      Pros

      The actual workload was easy and the women that worked there were just like family.

      Cons

      The hours sometimes would be a little gruesome due to the foot traffic and there wasn't enough support on the front desk.

      physically demanding, pressure to work fast

      Recommend

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      tips are decent. a free education on hard wax hair removal. great for those with no experience and fresh out of esthetician school. they are always hiring, and not very selective. most places dont use hard wax and most schools dont teach it so this is a great place to learn.

      Cons

      you are expected to wax most services in 15min. often three areas within that time frame. very few employees stay more than a year. theres a lot of pressure to work fast and sell products. commission for products and services are just a couple of dollars. you are not allowed to switch shifts with a fellow employee - in case you want to take a day off for a special event with little notice. and most likely you will need to ask two months in advance to take any time off. many waxers complain about shoulder and wrist pain - mostly due to constant stirring of the wax pot.
