    I worked at Regis Corporation (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a good place to start as a stylist to work on your skills as a hairstylist. You have an opportunity to work directly on the salon floor with clients learning literally on your feet.

    Cons

    You have an irregular schedule for work and no regular day off. Sometimes you end up working many days over a regular work week before you get a day off. You work day and night back to back and weekends. It's difficult to have a life outside of this job schedule.

    Advice to Management

    It would be so wonderful for the lives of the hard working faithful stylists you have to have a regular day off.

    Pros

    You get a Set schedule and lots of walk ins
    Good manager in both locations I've worked at
    Lots of return clients
    Raises are possible and company does offer some kind of insurance which not many employees I know of have.

    Cons

    Not able to choose your schedule days or hours
    You end up cleaning up after other stylist a lot of the times
    Your raises depends on your over all sales, combo tickets, chemical services, etc...(how much money you make the company)
     Has nothing to do with being on time or a good stylist or good work ethic

    Advice to Management

    one set of expectations on all stylist when It comes to cleaning up before u leave and when you get to work. one set of rules for stylist rotations and prebooking appointments that is thought out and fair.

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

    Pros

    Open door policy, the best team leaders,company standard and possibility for improvement in wage, career, ext. I've worked for one of the best senior district leaders ever. I've been in customer service 25 years. Licensed for 6 years. This is truly one of the best companys for the professional and the client throughout all positions in the corporation. Their mission is sound.

    Cons

    Salaries on glass door don't reflect actual across the board. I currently am paid less than min wage. It is very difficult to survive after all the hard work and expectations of a "career" when you're paid like a drop -out. The company will never meet it's true potential if it doesn't pay the stylist that their clients ultimately come for. The stylist will never give 100% if they can't even pay there bills or feed themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency in pay across the properties. More than 5%in product commission. Pay a professional with experience accordingly.

    Pros

    I had fun working their with the other stylists.

    Cons

    was a manager at Regis for 2 years. They offer little opportunity for growth and advancement. It is extremely difficult to move up in commission raise. They do offer some incentives such as points to use towards purchases such as tools, blow dryers, etc. They also offer some classes. Their are barely any benefits. The health ins. plan is not great. They don't do enough marketing to bring in new clients
