    Pros

    EWC is very family like workplace; very inclusive; promotes within; values family time; great benefits; listens to inputs and shows change; culture is amazing

    Cons

    No cons. EWC is so good with rolling with changes due to all the unknown about COVID. I miss the office and all the interactions.

    Pros

    My franchisee puts her people first! She knows that in order for her business to be successful she needs amazing people who are taken care of so that they in turn take care of the guests. I have never felt like just a number working for this franchisee, the work/life balance is also fantastic she encourages you to go on vacations and take time away from work. The amazing culture we have shines through all of her centers.

    Cons

    Not many if at all. The only con I could say would be if you don’t like working with an almost all female team. This industry is extremely diverse and some personalities may not mix well with others. I have not personally experienced any bumps with who I’ve worked with though.

    An Excellent Career in Waxing

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    European Wax Center is a great company with loads of opportunity, growth and a good culture focused on personal achievement. Great wax, after care and home maintenance products and people. Magic happens in the wax center. There is a very competitive pay with bonuses that allow you to reach your potential and leaders that are dedicated to see you succeed.

    Cons

    It is 100% speed waxing, not that this is a con at all, but it is good to know if you are looking to work at a slower pace it may not be for you.

    Pros

    European Wax Center is filled with wonderful ladies who treat you like family, sometimes it can be challenging but working here has been amazing. The staff is all very kind and the managers all care about us very well! This is the first job I’ve worked where people actually care and listen. It’s a very flexible job and they work well with whatever you need. I recommend this as a first time job, it’s super easy and you can make some great commission as well!

    Cons

    No cons, if there’s ever an issue we talk it out and fix the problem.
