    I have been working at Supercuts full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Their Supercuts Technique should be taught in Beauty School. It's organized, precise, easy to learn, and very efficient, while eliminating mistakes.
    Paid scale is well above minimum wage, even when you first start.
    Paid vacation and sick time that you can accumulate and save up as long as you want.
    Excellent management and potential for growth.

    Cons

    No downside in this location and with this management style.

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you're doing. Excellent coaching and technical training. Personal attention and rewards for a job-well-done.

    I have been working at Supercuts full-time

    Pros

    They have amazing ongoing education and are constantly trying to help their stylists grow. Franchisees pay better than corporate salons usually.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's hard working for corporate salons so I prefer a franchise salon.

    I have been working at Supercuts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    On going training. Built in clientele. Hours always available for those who want to work. Able to move up in the company. Great tips.

    Cons

    Stylists make minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth with the little people in the company. Stylists that have experience should be able to make more money than someone straight out of school.

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

    Pros

    Great training, great place to start out at! They provide you with clients and equipment. If you need to move there's always another location you can transfer too.

    Cons

    You will make a little above minimum wage. You can not get ahead. You get stuck in the same position for years. They won't offer you full time so you won't get any benefits. The place has a lot of drama and getting days off is almost impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about the employees you have so there won't be so much turn over. It takes more time and moment to train someone then to give someone a raise. Also clients don't like seeing so much new faces.

    Pros

    Lots of walkins, wide variety of styling products to use.

    Cons

    Horrible at making flexible schedules. Required to work every saturday and every other sunday. Management didnt follow the rules and routinely left before their shift was over.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the rules you set, allow some flexibility in scheduling. I never got to see my family

    Pros

    Great training system for color & a week of training for haircuts. Great for fresh out of cosmetology school. They use Paul Mitchell color

    Cons

    Minimum wage. You get cents more if you make sph (services per hour) that surpasses your minimum wage. They have a chart where they explain it, which are pretty high to reach if you don't work at a good busy location.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it professional
