    I have been working at Sally Beauty full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People are all very excited to bring about a change in the company. Everyone is passionate about what they do.

    Cons

    For me it is the drive as I do not live near the headquarters. Antiquated systems that are in process of being updated

    I have been working at Sally Beauty part-time

    Pros

    I had the pleasure of having a great manager, which was very flexible with my school schedule and really helped me, taught me a lot.

    Cons

    Not a lot of benefits, pay is horrible and a lot of problems with the systems, coupons and etc.

    Advice to Management

    Better the system, with coupons and sally rewards.

    Pros

    Not enough to consider working for. You have flexible hours but the lack of pay and lack of support are not worth it.

    Cons

    Awful company to work for. No internal support and terrible pay. They lie to you about what you will be making annually and the employee turnover is crazy. Nobody lasts more then 2 years...usually in and out within one year. Management does not care about their people and it clearly shows.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of ALL the current California management and replace them with managers who are willing to work and are invested in their employees.

    Pros

    Pretty simple job, not a very busy store, usually making friends with co workers is easy, incentives, you can transfer stores easily

    Cons

    You do everything the manger does as an assistant manager but start at minimum wage, managers start at $10 an hour, you have store resets alllll the time, my raise after 6 months was .25 cents!! Also it’s boring, my boss treated us like slaves, you have to sell items of the month at the counter while checking people out, and if you don’t your numbers will be bad and you’ll get yelled at. No oppurtunity to move up

    Advice to Management

    Find another job, you have so much work to do but get terrible pay

    I worked at Sally Beauty part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a great place to ease yourself into sales and becoming a customer service pro. My manager was very flexible so this was my job during college. You get a great discount and free products every month.

    Cons

    When I left Sally Beauty they were beginning to enforce new corporate level changes. So my cons may not apply anymore but corporate tends to put customers before their employees ALOT!

    Advice to Management

    Again changes were being enforced when I left but management should definitely stick to their rules. Sometimes a rule would be enforced for one customer but maybe not for another customer so employees would be confused about how to deal with things.

    Pros

    They promote from with in so if your looking to grow with the company this would be a good place. Employee samples every month, and employee discount

    Cons

    Long hours, over worked, short staffed too often, high turn over, no help from upper managment. They're constantly change things, there is always a new policy or procedure every week. It's just very frustrating when they have you do so much with so little time to complete it and when you don't have enough hours to run your store with.

    I worked at Sally Beauty full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice building, good cafeteria, rank and file are good people.

    Cons

    Poor pay, leadership says one thing and does another. They established what they wanted the culture to be and then didn't model any of it. CEO has replaced almost every VP and Senior Director and things were not improving.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in modernizing the stories and foundational IT systems like Supply Chain and Warehouse Management.
