    Tons of on campus benefits like free clinic, health classes, lunch room, and massages

    Cons

    It's hard to go further in your career once you hit a certain point

    Advice to Management

    We need to regain focus. Yes, the stylists are our main workers, but our GUESTS are the ones who pay all of our paychecks. If we are not focusing on giving them the best experience in the industry, someone else will.

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

    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.

    I have been working at Regis Corporation part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The managers I have worked with at Regis have all been very nice.

    Cons

    Scheduling is not terribly flexible, and at Cool Cuts for Kids I often work 8-9 hour shifts completely alone.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to schedule requests, and maybe don't have stylists work alone, it can be very stressful.
