    Pros

    If you follow the hair values and the coaching given. You can grow your paycheck. I love the team I work with. Everyone is encouraging and cheers each other to grow and build.

    The only downside is. When it isn't busy.

    Pros

    Great place for a new stylist to gain experience.

    Cons

    Stylists, managers, and field leadership are underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Re-work the pay plans for stylists, they are the bread and butter of the organization.

    I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great in salon team, head office are all friendly, regional managers really nice, training offered through out the year, good retail ranges to recommend to guests.

    Cons

    Pay schemes low, bonus's hard to achieve and when you do your taxed on them , constant policy and structure changes, 0 passion for hair very financially focused, lack of funding for salons that need updating, irregular motivators only when it's seen your in need of a kick, very little recognition for long standing employees, hours can be long, very little progression opportunities, used for your qualities with empty promises of further education or job opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Recognise your staff before you lose or demotivate them, don't promise and fail to deliver. Don't expect the world and give nothing in return, your salons need updating and not just in city centres

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

    Pros

    Insurance, 401K, online education, good Stylists

    Cons

    Micro-managing environment, no work life balance, goals that are impossible to meet and zero appreciation for dedicated and hard working employees, and little support from upper level management

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people what they are worth, and discontinue letting your unqualified departments make the business decisions for field personnel.

    Pros

    Regular workshops for keeping up to date on hair services. Pretty free to use your own artistic flair with your expertise. Used to have incentives and contests with prizes for selling retail.

    Cons

    They promise that when you get raises and enter into a different status, ie, designer, master, master designer that you can transfer with the company and keep your status whether it's a different state or country. This is not true. They start you over with the excuse that you do not have a clientele built yet.

    Advice to Management

    Do not be stingy with regards to paying your experienced stylists. You need them to help the Regis reputation.

    Pros

    I really like the people I work with, and the atmosphere at the office during the day. I like that people are willing to mentor you.

    Cons

    I started working here when I was 19, and eventually wanted to build a career with Regis... unfortunately Regis is not the same company I used to work for and the focus isn't the same. I don't LOVE coming to work like I used to.

    Pros

    Beautiful and Creative hair is priority. If you have a really good work ethic and clientele its a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Your salon may close at any time depending on how business is. Your hours are subject to be dropped if the salon isn't that busy.
