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

    Pros

    Great for when you get out of beauty school, you learn basic cuts and how to cut with speed. Learn one process colors and basic highlights. Good for if you want to go back to school or need benefits.

    Cons

    A very unprofessional environment. Cutting technic is old and is not for every hair type. The color line is dull and doesn't allow you to get to platinum blonde. The company plays favorites and it makes it difficult to move up. They hire unfit managers and breed for unprofessionalism.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be a manager with supercuts, it's not worth it and you could make more money else where.

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

    Pros

    Easy training, register and computer easy tyo learn.

    Cons

    Not good pay, hours are awful, no team work, to much drama, the stylist talk about politics when they are not suppose to. To much bs. management suspect a lot out of you for nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire who ever comes in, remember to hire smart. Make sure you have people that are opened minded and that takes critism well. Also make sure all styles get a long and work well together. Also pay your stylist and managers better ! As well make sure your district leaders can lead by example and support there managers.

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

    Pros

    It's a great company to go to right out of beauty school. They do teach some baseline fundamentals on cutting techniques and how you should present yourself to a client.

    Cons

    Even if you work hard, make top sales, and have a following you will not advance unless you suck up to "district supervisors". They play favorites and even if you're terrible at managing people they will promote you anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Actually look at the quality of work your stylist is giving the company and reward them for that. Quit being sneaky about promoting from within.
