    I worked at Regency Beauty Institute full-time

    Pros

    Working with students and being part of assisting them in shaping their personal goals after school. I always enjoyed having new classes, preparing students for the state board exam and seeing each student's personal growth as they moved through the program.

    Cons

    Strange culture at times, upper management didn't seem to understand the students that were attending the program. Constant changes in curriculum and unrealistic expectations of students and staff. High price tag for education but supplies and student kits didn't meet most students expectations. Never having enough supplies in stock, students kit items constantly breaking.

    Advice to Management

    Work on gaining more knowledge of the students attending campuses. Work diligently to find a curriculum that works and ask for the input of the actual educators delivering that curriculum day in and day out. Find ways to build campus culture that are not bending the rules, as a job training school it is extremely important for students to truly understand what it is going to take to be successful in the salon industry....

    I worked at Regency Beauty Institute full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working with students and using great products.

    Cons

    Poor upper management. Area managers overworked and aside from the weekly meeting they don't really comunicate with their managers althought they say they do. They also lie for unknown reasons. Maybe to make them selves look important. Not sure really.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your AMs. They aren't as good as you think they are. You risk to loose many good employees for listening and trusting the wrong people.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Regency Beauty Institute full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The Job is different everyday which keeps it interesting. Working with students is fulfilling. It has normal expectations for achieving goals and finishing reports.

    Cons

    It seems that it is hard to keep staff. This seems company wide.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to listen to everyone in a campus, students and staff. They also need some compasion. Stop assuming everyone is going to cuz a legal issue and have alittle heart when speaking to students and staff. Stop reading a "script and speak like we are individuals.
