    I worked at Mario Tricoci Hair Salon & Day Spa full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    90% discount on services and discount on products. That is it nothing else. I had a horrible time at this place.

    Cons

    Horrible Training
    Mean Techs
    Stressful
    Don't follow reprimand policies I got 1 write and was fired a week later even after I voiced my concerns to my manager and she said I have nothing to worry about
    Bad pay
    Deal with stuck up people
    System is stupid
    Other co-workers took hour breaks bc they were in "a meeting" with our supposed boss
    Everyone else's word over yours
    Lots of backstabbing liars
    This place was such a joke! Right after I got fired for reasons I can't even fathom I got promoted at my old job a week later. What does that tell you? They're delusional here!

    Advice to Management

    Um maybe don't promote such childish people and tell your techs to stop snapping on front desk people that work hard for them all the time.

    Very flexible work hours. Great benefits - dental, medical, 401K & reduced prices on salon visits! Lots of great people to work with and talk to. No day is the same. There is potential for advancement.

    Cons

    A lot of sitting at your desk.

    Pros

    AMAZING TRAINING. You will learn hands on whether its cut or color. You will definitely become a true professional no matter what department you choose. Even though you might have been in the beauty industry for 20 years you will always gain an education!

    Cons

    Once your on the floor its straight commission and its a very unstable paycheck. It is understandable to give coupons to new customers but the discounts are HUGE and those extreme discounts are coming out of your pay check. Plus the new customers aren't very loyal because they salon hop no matter how good of a job you do.

    Advice to Management

    When you have an issue its hard to come to management for guidance. They have to go through many people to get an answer and some rules are too extreme.

    Pros

    I guess the benefits are nice and I get my nails done a lot. The hair stylists are trained well

    Cons

    The management is terrible and they instigate drama around the salon. Like I said above the management sucks and I am not a fan As an esthetician you should truly care about taking care of someone's skin not selling them a stupid useless product with crisco as the main ingredient

    Advice to Management

    Be kinder and actually enjoy management because otherwise we can tell you hate your job that's for sure

    Pros

    The name gets a lot of people in the door. Providing education for staff. Lots of locations to choose from.

    Cons

    They don't value their staff.
    Extremely cheap.
    The people at the top are making millions while the staff is thrown pennies.

    Pros

    The company itself is fantastic. Great, credible services and products, and wonderful educational opportunities to help everyone stay up to date in the industry.

    Cons

    In an industry that is updating itself daily, it is remarkable that one particular salon would choose to stay behind on trends and management.

    Advice to Management

    Voluntary Turnover within companies happen when employees are not happy. My advice to upper management would be to evaluate each salons management and not turn a blind eye when several employees are exiting, and cannot keep new employees for longer than a few months.
