    Pros

    Lots of walk-ins, respectable full service salon, great benefits, a good place to build a career

    Cons

    Only downside is salons are open late and so you will have to close a couple times a week

    Advice to Management

    Make sure leaders are good and motivating, and pay attention to high turnover rate, a good leader should be able to retain staff

    I have been working at Hair Cuttery full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    401k, PTO, free education, clean work environment, friendly co-workers, good leadership

    Cons

    Over worked (no uninterrupted lunch breaks means you dont actually get a lunch break), almost everyone makes poverty level wages, the only way you get a raise is when prices go up, took away commission tiers- now commission is based off of how much retail you sell and how much money in services you do which really hurt you if you dont work 30+ hrs. policy is constantly changing including making bonuses harder to earn. Its getting harder and harder to make an average living in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back set compensation levels & offer better bonus commission so stylists can earn a living wage. Stop opening new salons on every corner and focus on how to make the ones that are working run smoother. Close the slowest salons. Stop trying to make Hair Cuttery the next Starbucks, we don't need to be on in every corner if you can't even be consistent with the ones that are open. Get a better color line.

    I have been working at Hair Cuttery full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Commission or Hourly rate, which ever one is hiring. Benefits starting after 6 months of employment. Part-time or Full-time available

    Cons

    Must work at least one night or weekend. Non-Flexible schedules. Closed only 5 days out of the year. Black-out dates during holiday seasons.

    Advice to Management

    More time off should not be based on the amount of PTO. Hairstylist are people who've families and need time with them. Schedules should be made to fit personal lives to promote a better work life balance.
