    I worked at Marinello Schools of Beauty full-time

    Pros

    Ownership and flexibility were great. Perks included discounts at the school's spa and salon.

    Cons

    More sales than you'd think. If students didn't qualify for federal aid, the planning was pretty difficult.

    I worked at Marinello Schools of Beauty full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was flexible for working parents. They had a vision for a better learning environment for the students, but that has to be tailored for the demograhic.

    Cons

    Everyone's advancement was based on if they knew someone else, not their educational background, or expertise.
    Many of the management personnel were very unprofessional. Students were not able to have faith in the leadership.
    Higher management put no value on the students opinions, or direct line staff's opinions.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that the student's have good leadership, or they will perpetuate the same negative behavior the industry is often known for. Strive for a higher level of professionalism, and ensure that boundaries are maintained.

    I worked at Marinello Schools of Beauty full-time

    Pros

    Knowledgeable instructors. You are constantly learning, if you have any questions the instructors are always there for you if you need anything.

    Cons

    There are only a couple of instructors so its difficult for you to have their attention all the time because there are other students who always need help.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to establish the rules and keep to them. They always gave us new rules to abide by and then in a few weeks would forget about them so everyone would do their own thing.

    I worked at Marinello Schools of Beauty (Less than a year)

    Pros

    coworker and students were the only good thing about this place

    Cons

    This was the worst company to work for, the education was horrible and all they cared about was enrolling anyone and giving them high school diplomas by cheating

    Advice to Management

    Luckily they were shut down so hopefully the owners won't be able to start any other businesses
