Great place to gain experience
Regis use to be a fun place and then they started hiring anybody and switching our leaders. we lost trust. they take someone good people and push them out because they didn't give them enough time to reap the rewards of their hard efforts.

I've been with Regis for 7 years, I was able to gain a promotion to salon leader after 9 months as a stylist. If you work hard for the company they WILL work hard for you. They offer a ton of education, room for advancement in lots of different directions. the leaders encourage growth, and do their best to give the support stylists and salon leaders need to drive business. The company gives you all the tools you need to succeed, if you are willing to use them. They offer lots of benefits, health insurance, life, dental, vision, paid vacation, 401k, stock purchase programs, and discounts at several businesses.
there will never be the perfect place to work, but Regis does its best to be a great place to start a career.1

Good place to start without a clientele and a good opportunity to advance into Management
Absolutely the worst paying company ever. This company pays less than companies that I worked for 20 plus years ago and it should be the other way around. Minimum wage is an insult to the Beauty industry1

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.
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.1

Amazing education. Amazing stylists. Lots of resources for new stylists to learn about the industry. Great Place to start your career if you treat it like a paid internship and spend six months to a year there then go get a real job.
You Will make minimum wage unless you work your way into a management position then you'll get a few dollars more/ hour. You will not "slide" as the call it (get raises) until you've been there at least 3 years and it gets harder as minimum wage goes up because the company won't even talk about adjusting the pay scale. Many of the salons haven't been updated in 20 or 30 years and the company has no intentions of doing that unless property management mandates it. They say their number 1 priority is the stylist but I haven't seen 1 hint of that in the companies actions, a screen saver on the office computer and a video on the website don't mean anything if your employees can't afford to pay rent!8

Regis Corporate salons are a great place to get a start and develop your skills
I've been working here most of my career. It's a money hungry corporation. They careless about stylist. All they care about is numbers and how much retail you sell. The only reason I work there because I have bills and rent to pay. I really love doing hair and been doing it for four years now. I know I could work at another salon but it's hard building your clientele. And just getting commission from other salon is not going to pay the rent. It's nice to have the walk-ins .4
