    A good place to start.

    Mar 8, 2016 - Stylist in Greenville, SC

    Pros

    You cant beat the walkin traffic...the salon I work at is in a mall. I was able to build a solid client base within a year. You get a nice discount on products at the end of the month. Almost everything is supplied for you...towels, color, capes, products, etc. Great place to start out. Pay is hourly vs commission so you do get a guaranteed paycheck.

    Cons

    The hourly pay stinks. We're talking minimum wage. I expected it though and think of it as paying my dues to the industry. It seems very difficult to make commission. In a year, I have yet to make commission and I stay busy. We have very seasoned stylists that still make minimum wage if the dont make commission. How is a Master Stylist just paid $7.25 an hour? There is an unbelievable amount of focus placed on retail sales. Retail is important for sure but they, management, are RELENTLESS! Every goal revolves around retail. They use provided education as a selling point when you interview but my salon has had zero education brought in since I've worked there, over a year. Very disappointing when you feel more emphasis is placed on selling products rather than molding great stylists.

    Company that WANTS to do great

    Pros

    Great place to start your career as a hairstylist. Room for growth if you wish to work in the corporate world. Builds a strong foundation of business knowledge. Offers a guaranteed pay, benefits and paid vacation. Lots of people walk through the doors.

    Cons

    I think this is a great place for a stylist starting out since there are so many people who come in. As you grow your business it is very tough to continue to increase your pay through the years as you would in other places.

    Pros

    It's a great place for someone who is in school because over all you will have plenty of time to sit in the salon to do homework. working in a regis salon overall is great place to "work"and get a pycheck without actually working.

    Cons

    I think the company has givin up on the lower volume stores. The store I work at had very slow traffic and it felt like the home office was just waiting for the store's lease to be up to close it. I"m not sure if its true but thats what it feels like. It seems like higher management and even the home office puts all of the energy into "dazzeling" higher volume store that are doing well but lower volume stores are left on the side of the road.

    Great Experience

    Dec 3, 2014 - Manager in State College, PA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great place to work especially gaining experience, an easy place to promote within the company if you are qualified. Some flexibility on scheduling depending on Manager. Never ending supply of customers if you are at a good store w/good visibility. Opportunity to make as little or as much money as you are willing to actually put in.

    Cons

    You are a number at a number, "black out" dates for vacations and time off, evenings and weekends, not feeling appreciated, could have a horrible experience on immediate manager, being at a location or being the "front lines" when changing teams that had a prior negative team or poor stylists. At the end of the day you are paying for yourself to work there and its all a numbers came.
