    Nice co workers , not much more.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at SmartStyle full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None, I wouldn’t say anything good

    Cons

    They don’t care about employees at all, I went from a corporate store and we got bought by the yellowhammer salon group. The district manager spews our lies every time she opens her mouth. I felt like I was being bullied at every encounter with upper management. My bonus went from $400/month to $9 a month. Not worth my time. Also hassle you outside of work to do work for free
