    Pros

    There are a lot of benefits of this job
    Employee discounts and vacation time
    I also like the monthly free samples

    There aren’t many cons . The main one is standing on your feet for long periods of time
    There are also days when it’s not busy but there is always something to do to keep busy

    Great perks and incentives!

    Low salary and 60-70 hour work weeks. District Manager was not knowledgeable of product and policies, making it hard for stores to succeed.

    I worked at Sally Beauty part-time

    Pros

    working with great products, open and close at a decent hour, learn a ton about cosmetology

    Cons

    not a lot of room for pay increase or advancements, systems are pretty outdated and they dont seem to like to spend money to upgrade anything in the store even though it is needed, management has favorites and it doesnt matter if they end up screwing up their job. They will always have a place to work because the GMs dont have spines and just want their whole team to be their bff.

    Advice to Management

    replace yourselves
