    I worked at Regis Corporation part-time (More than 3 years)

    I was able to learn from my former boss.

    Money was not very good.
    Some employees were rude to coworkers and clients.

    I worked at Regis Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The only pro hire people without experience.

    Cons

    Pay is very low. Hard to establish clientele since company doesn't advertise on TV or billboards. Management including district leader and regional manager does not care about employees. They have lost the human aspect of business.

    Advice to Management

    Try to understand stylist needs, for example better pay. It's hard to support a family with minimum wage.

    Pros

    Built in client base, product discounts, guaranteed hours.

    Cons

    Low hourly wage, some locations are extrmely outdated

    Advice to Management

    Raise hourly pay from minimum wage some of your stylists work is worth a lot more money and it would help the company to keep employees longer term.

    I worked at Regis Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Regis Corp. provides education to its stylists. Regis stylists are believed to be better skilled stylists, and prices are nearly double that of other salons.

    Cons

    The education is the same no matter the salon. Meaning, low-cost salons are just as trained. The client only thinks Regis is more elite. However, Regis owns other establishments which receive the same classes.

    Advice to Management

    If Regis wants to be elite then teach Regis stylists courses that are not offered to lesser salons.

    I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some paid holidays and benefits if you could afford it. Most of the staff and guests are great.

    Cons

    Minimum wage pay ,hardly any education ,flooded markets with no staff , no insensitives, the list can go on forever . You are overworked and underpaid and not appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Start taking care of your stylist and managers that's who is making the money for your corporation.

    I have been working at Regis Corporation part-time

    Pros

    Just hourly rate, not enough clients to everyone because manager takes them all!

    Cons

    just have the left overs from manager

    Advice to Management

    Walk in with a request or call ahead, should be an extra fee, because manager takes everybody and other stylist just seats around, when schedule is made including all the request. If a client is requesting one stylist they won't mind the extra 2 dollars per hair cut if not all other stylist can have a client and it will be a better work flow..

    Pros

    It's a job. Paychecks were always on time.

    Cons

    Poor leadership abound at headquarters. Listening to the way the leadership talks about the support staff as if they are disposable at all times is hard to keep going day in and day out.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people you pay to help guide technology.

    I worked at Regis Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Zip. Zero. Zilch. Nothing. NONE.

    Cons

    Always short staffed because the pay is terrible! You work nights, weekends and holidays with no extra pay and upper management sucks and lies

    Advice to Management

    Paying your people minimum wage makes you look pathetic. Trust your SDL's instead of lying to them and backstabbing. Oh yeah, and maybe don't pay your sucky managers more than your SDL's - there's an idea!

    I worked at Regis Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Didn't require a clientele since we had so many walk ins.

    Cons

    The salon wasn't organized at all. Their methods were just all over the place, I'd have to stop mid-haircut to greet a customer or answer the phone.

    I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Education , training, values, supplies and hours

    Cons

    Pay, support, lack of support and did I say lack of support by Regional management

    Advice to Management

    Making sure that your employees have more of a support system from higher management.
    Also having someone who actually knows the business instead of just appointing someone who has been in sales would be helpful.
