- 2.0Mar 5, 2018Salon ManagerFormer Employee, more than 5 yearsMadison, AL
Some benefits for full time employees after one year of employment. Some opportunity for growth. Vacation available after one year.
The company has been trending downward for awhile now. They have closed 4 salons in our market this year (2018). Upper management is focused on numbers and seem to forget what it is like on the salon level. They removed the educators which is listed as a perk and potential position for growth. The pay is laughable, especially once you grow past management.6

company stability, opportunities for working varied hours, guarenteed hourly wage. Nice colour line (Wella) , good selection of professional retail products
comission rate MUCH lower than industry standard, employees don't count as people, only revenue generators. too much paperwork for managers and closeout considering it all gets downloaded to home office every night from the computer, I am a hairstylist, not a secretary or receptionist, I do HAIR, not paperwork! our salon does not get to carry all the colours that are offered to us in the colour chart we are given, so it can make formulating a challange. (why offer it if we can't have it there to use?) we are open more hours than we can cover comfortably and safely... we have stylists working alone, in an area the has a high crime rate. Upper management is difficult to get straight answers out and tend to talk in circles. They deflect questions and seem to make a show of being interested in what we think (as frontline workers), but nothing ever comes of our suggestions and input.4

Generally friendly staff in most locations Middle and lower management typically very accommodating First year stylists will easily build interpersonal communication skills Monthly contests render decent prizes and participation incentives Price point dictates constant demand despite any economic shifts
Near-minimum wage to start and little to no chance of increased remuneration. While friendly, staff does not subvert the industry tendency toward the immature and unmotivated. Internalized education is geared toward high volume, low quality production trains stylists to develop very poor techniques within their craft. Lower management is too busy with a high volume of patrons to complete basic duties. Middle management is severely limited in power by upper management restrictions and lack of lower management accountability. Upper management is rarely present on location and can typically by contacted only within a narrow time window and by middle management. Payroll and HR can only be reached by middle managers, all issues called in to payroll and HR by regular employees are redirected back through middle management or ignored. Scheduling is very haphazard; shifts are assigned randomly week by week. Seven to nine day streaks are not atypical. New scheduling optimization creates split shifts that span up to twelve hours. Work week is defined as Monday through Sunday so, for example, working nine days straight from Wednesday through Thursday typically will yield no overtime compensation. Legally mandated lunch breaks were rarely able to be taken and, when taken were continuously interrupted. Co-workers and middle management pressure one another constantly to not take said breaks. No upward mobility. Almost all positions above lower management and staff education are filled permanently or are not filled from within the company. Resigned voluntarily with three weeks' notice and vacation pay was not received with final paycheck on the next payday per Colorado law. After a second payday passed, contacted middle management and found that termination papers had still not yet been filed a month after the last day worked. Still unpaid, I'm told it will be another 15 days before the check is deposited.1

I have been with Regis off and on for 20 years and seen a lot of changes but I have to say the current CEO and COO really care about making Regis a great place for stylists to work. We have a great partnership with Matrix that has lead to one of the best education programs in the industry. We also are finally getting great leadership training that is helping upper management become true leaders.
As with any corporation change takes time, plus your not going to like everything about your employer.

None that I can remember.
This company paid less than minimum wage which was somehow legal (the hourly rate paid to employees was less than NMW but was made equivalent to NMW by taking from the employees earned commission). A very immoral and unethical approach to employees in my opinion. When needing to make some employees redundant, upper management chose to offer an impossible and unfeasible solution which they knew employees would not be able to accept. This was done with the intention of not having to offer anything else (i.e. a redundancy payment). Every employee was regularly threatened with disciplinary action by store-level management and upper management if customers were convinced to buy as many products as possible (employees were told to lie so customers would buy). Working conditions violated health and safety requirements (on one occasion, the store temperature was below freezing and upper management refused to resolve the issue, instead, calling employees liars).

A company where you can go from being a stylist into management and to upper leadership in a short time.
Company was going through restructuring, which caused a great deal of uncertainty for employees.

Coworkers and some clients made it bearable
Everything else!!! Their commission goals are impossible to reach. Labour board said it a legal pyramid scheme. Upper management doesn’t know squat when it comes to their service prices or being a stylist. They will aide and harass you til you are forced to quit1

Career Opportunities In Management or Education. Awesome career path development and training provided in both! I began my career as a stylists. Upper management is visible and involved. CEO spends time in person at every level!! Who does that...Awesome I have a beautiful career and life doing what i love.
When I read comments from former employees makes me very sad.... Our current structure has a lot of support for communication,
