    I worked at Regis Corporation part-time

    Pros

    I'm hard pressed to find any.

    Cons

    Work your butt off for a horrible sliding scale which amounts to making barely more than minimum wage. Have the corporation feel so little loyalty that they only give four days notice upon closing a location. A location they were still adding staff to up to a week before this news was conveyed. Then get screwed out of a staying bonus, b/c no one in HR or Payroll knows what they're doing.

    Advice to Management

    COMPLETE OVERHAUL!

    I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I love our manager and coworkers...
    I have been here 10 years and have a large customer base thanks to MY hard work. They did nothing to help promote the salon. My boss is very flexible on my schedule.

    Cons

    Pay scale sucks.
    They demand so much and give nothing.
    We were a previous salon and bought out by them. It took 8 years and us telling them we would do the work to finally paint the salon. They kept saying if we hit all our goals this month they would.... For 6 months. Finally enough customers complained about the color stains and ripped chairs before they did anything. Why should we convince YOU to invest in YOUR business.

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay scale and quit demanding us to be open on holidays. I mean do you work on holidays?!

    I worked at Regis Corporation full-time

    Pros

    They are Number one in the hair industry. They offer lots of training for management. You can make your own schedule.

    Cons

    New CEO is making many changes by putting a lot of pressure on field teams and taking away all the great perks we once had.

    Advice to Management

    Your expectations are unrealistic. You are loosing many SDLs and stylist. Maybe you should be getting rid of RD who work from home 50% of the time. They need to get in the salons and lead by example instead of hiding in back room

    Pros

    There are no pros to working here. Unless you have no soul

    Cons

    Work alone, no support from higher-ups, crazy staff.. The list goes on

    Advice to Management

    I worked almost 20 years for this company. I have managed, supported other salons that were under staffed, worked for other brands. You name it I did it. This year (2016) was the worst year for me in my entire career. I was managing and no one ever wanted to work. I worked alone a ton. I had to alter my time sheet so they wouldn't get in trouble for me not taking a break. I put in about 10 hours per week not paid just to keep up with paperwork or orders. I can write so much you would get bored reading it. I felt the the chain break on my ball the moment I walked out of that door forever.. Now fighting to get paid for earned vacation time.. I wouldn't recommend this company to my worst enemy. The wrap their greedy hands around your soul... Run while you can..

    Pros

    Incentive points and the fact that you can go on their website and order things and it comes right out of your paycheck every two weeks

    Cons

    Upper management never has your back only their own

    Advice to Management

    Do a lot of investigating about why the previous manager step down or quit and observe your team so you aren't thrown in with a difficult team that will fight you on everything to where you will not be successful

    Pros

    Clients are awesome and they offer in house training to be able to keep up your license. Other than that not much good about it.

    Cons

    Management changes often. No raises. They expect you to live on tips. They pretty much want you to live in the store and work constantly for little or no benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees. The ones who are actually doing the hair. The people in offices have no idea what is going on daily in the salons and some of their ideas and expectations are absurd.
