    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

    Pros

    Your voice matters and you meet great people. You get looked up to. You definitly have to have a backbone to be in leadership

    Cons

    You're expected to drop everything that matters like family or religion to work... especially when it snows. You sometimes have to stay to work when someone calls out

    I worked at Hair Cuttery full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money, if your in the right location. My co-workers were my family. Loved them all.

    Cons

    With their "smile back guaranteed" you can also be fired after working for them for 7 1/2 years for doing your job. When a person comes back on you that is a professional complainer, gets paid and all kinds of free stuff from other companies in and around the area.
    They don't treat their employees with professional respect. Otherwise I would still have my job, now I'm struggling to pay my bills and feed my family.
    Thanks Hair Cuttery for almost making me homeless.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your stylist with more professional respect, and the customer IS NOT ALWAYS RIGHT!!!

    I have been working at Hair Cuttery full-time

    Pros

    Education, friendships, redken, mexico, creativity.

    Cons

    Just found out my former manager was fired for trying to bring up illegal behaviors that needed to be fixed. We were taken aside and
    told the manager quit. This manager took us to Mexico and worked here a really long time. She was very protective of our team. The new manager only cares about herself and lied to us along with the assistant and District Manager. I'm looking for a new job. No trust here.

    Advice to Management

    Investigate after a long term employee is let go. How do any of us have job fairness now??
