    I worked at Sally Beauty full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    You get to work in an industry that is constantly growing and changing, Tattoos, piercings and colorful hair are all accepted. Employee incentives and discounts. You gain a lot of knowledge about products. Opportunities to advance. Great management training. You learn a lot of skills that can be applied to other careers. Corporate has improved their communication with stores in recent years.

    Cons

    Payroll hours are constantly changing based on store performance and in some stores you may be required to work alone for several hours or close the store alone. How great the job can be is highly dependent on how great your supervisor is. The quality of the job and work environment vary quite a bit from store to store and district to district. Work-life balance can be difficult in a management position.

      Pros

      Wonderful customers. The benefits are decent, if you are lucky enough to get full-time.

      Cons

      Upper management is very disorganized. Jobs are not secure, employees are no longer valued.

      Advice to Management

      If anything is going to run this company into the ground, it's going to be the disorganization. Start listening to your store teams.

      Advice to Management

      When I first started here, I loved my job through and through. I worked full time and even traveled to other stores to help with coverage. I even made a daily paper to fill out that worked specifically for my store in my own time. Overall, I put a lot into my job because I loved it, but this company screwed me over.

        Pros

        Sallys has an amazing discount you get to use and if you’re lucky you get a great group of people to work with.

        Cons

        They don’t like hiring anyone in at a timely manner nor do they pay enough for assistant management.
