    I have been working at European Wax Center full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    -We have such a great environment here, it's always positive and fun. ->We have a no gossip no drama policy, so we get to be in a drama free environment, and aside from that all of us get along so well! -We have hourly pay, but also get to earn commission on top of it. You get great sales experience from educating guests here on what we offer. -Our guests are awesome-you really get to know the regulars coming...

    Cons

    Whenever we come across any cons or issues, they get handled and addressed. Our management really cares about their centers and all of the associates that work in them, so they are more than happy to take feedback and make sure the cons go away. Any cons that have come up aren't current.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! They are always available to hear us out on what we need, even small things that come up. They go out of their way to get feedback on how management is doing, which I think helps to work out any kinks from the associate perspective. They care about their locations doing well and associates being happy. Thank you for creating such a great environment for us and being so down to earth!

      Current Employee - Wax Specialist 

      I have been working at European Wax Center part-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      EWC is a very good place to begin fresh out of beauty school or could be a great transition into other career goals. It provides structure and experience that will come in handy. The atmosphere and culture of the brand is just right. Tips are huge part of the pay

      Cons

      Hourly rate is so low, espcially since we have to be certified and licensed. This could be true or false depending what center you are and if you are just starting. It gets discouraging considering the amount of physical work that is expected

      Advice to Management

      Be clear on expectations and possibilties availble to employees. An increase in the starting hourly rate should be implementated and should gradually increase. This would help in retention of the waxers.

      Steady income, will train, shifts are not long

      Be more flexible when allowing employees to make their schedules.

      Pros

      Hours are often flexible making it a great job for college students.

      Cons

      It can be boring on slow days, and if coworkers are running behind or have a bad attitude, it ends up effecting everyone.

        No opinion of CEO

        I worked at European Wax Center full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        The down time you get

        Cons

        1. The owner of kirkwood location is spastic and unorganized, really has no idea what’s going on 2. The employees are disrespectful and rude 3. The front desk staff does not show up on time which make the rest of the day not run smoothly for anyone(they open the clinic) 4. Gossip (it’s all women) 5. Cleaning the fooors with paint thinner

        Advice to Management

        Hire an ACTUAL manager. Instead of trying to do everything by yourself as an owner. Spend more time in the clinic so you actually know what’s going on
