    Cool company to work for

    Pros

    Very nice people to work with

    Lots of mandatory overtime, more than the five hours you initially agree to

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more and watch the condescending way you speak to them in the monthly meetings, very demoralizing.

    I have been working at Sally Beauty full-time

    Pros

    Free sample product and if you have a good Dm some balance between work and home life.

    Cons

    Low pay, rebranding taking away some perks of job that made up low pay. Pay roll constantly messes up pay checks and takes forever to get fixed. Point of sale issues constantly because system is old.

    Pros

    Easy job, able to grow, beauty products, free samples for employees, great people when you’re in a good store. Excellent training!

    Cons

    managers don’t get paid for all they do, management work load, employees don’t stay in slower locations, too many emails, hard to meet sales goals in slower locations and upper management doesn’t care about your store volume (they think it’s an excuse.

    I worked at Sally Beauty full-time

    Pros

    Fun environment
    Free product testers

    Cons

    It's not worth it financially to be a store manager for the company. The pay scale is awful. Bonuses are often unachievable. Quotas are unrealistic. You lack adequate store hours to staff properly, meaning you work alone to compensate. They require you to work at least 45 hours a week. The company makes it almost completely impossible to let go of untrustworthy, unreliable (etc.) employees.
