    Pros

    Always lots of things to be done so never boring, great discount, free launch products, great incentives, sick pay and paid vacations and they promote from within .

    Cons

    Drama with all female staff, sometimes other co workers don't pull there own weight and it gets frustrating. Long hours especially when people call out on short notice.

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

    Pros

    The people are great! Truly a great group of people to work with at the Denton offices. Interesting industry with dynamic contracts both merchandise vendors and IT consultants. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Layoffs are frequent, every year a group of people are let go with the last layoff in April 2018 the largest. From 2016-2017 almost all Executive leadership turned over except for CEO and a hand full of VPs. Anyone working at corporate office knows they are expendable. A consultant company seemed to take over strategic planning for company which resulted in restructuring that left many operational holes and sent industry experts with invaluable knowledge away from the company.

    Advice to Management

    If you treat your employees well. The employees will take care of the company.
