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

    Pros

    The location they were in and insurance

    Cons

    I was bought out by Regis 7 years ago from hair Cuttery that I had been with since 1992 and it has been the worst year of my 25 years. They under pay and micromanage is the worst they want want want and could care less about any of the stylist that are making there money for them behind the chair. They change rules management and higher almost every other year. They have cut almost all befits for working for little pay like supplies and suckers (a bag of dumb dumbs really).

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the ones behind the chair and make them your number one customer and maybe you could get people who would want to come work there and would do everything in their power to make it a great shop. To back for my former shop that they told y’all if I left they all would go to.

    Pros

    Meeting Great friends clients. Most opportunities vary, depending on location and corp. Leaders. Loved our individual artistic director. When we still had them.

    Cons

    Don't pay enough for the amount of work that's delegated to stylists managers or even receptionist. Hard to retain employees. Turnover rates suck. Corp. Leaders do not visit salons or communicate with employees.
    Left to fen for yourself. No recognition. Corp leaders change too often. Too much paperwork and no time for it.
    Office hrs do not pay your commission.
    Worry more about customer satisfaction!!

    Advice to Management

    Expectations are too much. Corp. pays close to crumbs. While they paper push behind a desk. All of our hard work pays corp people. We have families too! Get involved with salons.

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

    Pros

    New leadership seems to have a clue but people need to get on board with the new vision. Pay was decent.

    Cons

    "old folks" don't like change, hard to make improvements and streamline process when people don't like taking on work that actually falls within their job description, found some people working there who had been there decades were hostile, closed minded, not open to change or making things better. over worked with no light at the end of the tunnel but there are a lot of people walking around that are literally not doing a single thing except for looking like they are working. Benefits are terrible and expensive

    Advice to Management

    Sounds like you are already cleaning house which is probably for the best. A lot of the employees I worked with were so old school and were resistant to change - get the negative nellys out of there because they are bringing down the other people that really want to work and see progressive change.

    Pros

    hr and admin very good. large company

    Cons

    poor pay
    little training for manager
    badly looked after salons - lighting poor- plumbing poor- health and safety poor- allows dogs at work in salons-no corporate image - bad stock contoll
    staff not motivated
    lack of educational motivation
    lack of technology
    limited pricing structure

    Advice to Management

    the management need to wake up !realise that create great salons they need to invest in their fixtures fitting decor to attract more clients- not just rely on their ethos of the 80s charm look.
    also hair nails and beauty holistic therapies are a package people expect it
    managers need a full training programme at start of a contract not rely on other people in salon to teach this
    monetry incentives need to improve
