Not sure what will happen

District Leader (Current Employee)
Ottawa, ON

I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

ProsIt is a full time job. It is nice that some owner isn't breathing down your back.

ConsExtremely low wage. A lot of stress, and responsibility for the work load. They expect you to do 3 jobs, Manager, Stylist & District Leader for little money. As part of the field management team, it is hard to find & keep good employees when wages are so low.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are a lot of long time employees that have been at a wage freeze for YEARS. You should pay your employees better. They feel unappreciated. It is really hard to survive here with what you get paid. Even the DL pay is below the poverty line.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Wonderful experience, amazing team, motivated and loved to go to work every day.

Regional Director (Current Employee)
Mississauga, ON

I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

ProsCompany vehicle, benefits, great contest prizes, fun place to work in the field. ,

ConsDisconnect between home office and the field. No effective communication flow from office to field. In the past year with restructuring, there seems to be some disorganization between the ranks, and poor leadership.

Advice to Senior ManagementEvaluate your direct level that deals with the field. This level is the key to make your companies mission statement and values come true. If they don't believe and send out negative messages about the future of the company, than you will have a harder time making the teams believe in the initiatives suggested.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Flexible hours but pay sucks

Cosmetologist (Current Employee)
Colonial Heights, VA (US)

I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI like my job but cannot afford much with the pay I make. Health insurance cost too much for what we make in pay. Health insurance doesn't pay out much either. Benefits include 401 K but no matching. Regis stock they match but if you take them up on all the benefits you dont even get enough money on your check to survive.

ConsPay sucks! Lots of drama between coworkers. No organization. Incentive programs that really don't motivate you. Morale is down.I dislike making minimum wage or commission whichever is higher.plus any tips you get taxes come out of your check on them and then after benefits you have like a 200.00-300.00 dollar paycheck every 2 weeks. It doesnt even cover my rent.

Franchised Beauty

Stylist (Current Employee)

I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time for less than a year

ProsWorking for Regis there is a lot of growth opportunity to build clientle and the 6hour shifts are just enough.
I like the incentives for stylist that push us to work harder.

ConsThe pay isn't enough to live off of.
The chaotic atmosphere of managerial duties and salon duties (why is doesn't the salon manager have an office or at least a filing cabinet?)
Not having a receptionist limits the stylist while they're working, having to keep stepping away from a client.

Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand that Regis salons is a brand that has returning guests and it should be ran as such and not as a cruise ship salon or a smart-style salon (although in the same brand).
Better payment plans
maybe based off experience

Struggling Company Trying to Turn Things Around

Inventory Manager (Current Employee)
Edina, MN (US)

I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

ProsRegis is a fine company that has become bloated over the years with greatly increased costs. The company has recently changed the vast majority of senior management that appears to be trying to right the ship. Unfortunately we have not yet seen this turnaround, but the outlook seems to be more hopeful.
-Great culture with an emphasis on work/life balance.
-Very friendly employees.
-Room to advance, but requires a lot of self-motivation.

Cons-Struggling company means low benefits.
-Old systems cause constant issues.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of silly stuff like free food and increase salaries to attract new talent.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

famous hair- Regis salon

Manager (Current Employee)
Canton, OH (US)

I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

Prosroom for growth.. don't have to "get" your own customers.. all of your supplies are supplied.

Conssalon services/ products only caters to European hair textures. micro management in salons. since under new ownership (Regis) salons have been undergoing SEVERAL changes.

Advice to Senior Managementmoney is not everything.. some people can be so money hungry and unpersonable I think they sometimes forget to take care of employees

moving up = less tech, more exec, but low-level mgmt = awesome. Bottom line: move on as quickly as possible!

Help Desk Analyst I (Former Employee)
Minneapolis, MN (US)

I worked at Regis Corporation full-time for less than a year

Proslow-level mgmt is down-to-earth
good entry-level experience with help desk 1 and basic network troubleshooting
free food all three meals (gets a bit repetitive)

Consvertical/lateral transitions are difficult
exec to mgmt to help desk communication is consistently poor and inconsiderate
very low pay

Advice to Senior Managementblindly striving to put more money in your pocket damages the work environments of everyone else and hence your own...

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Salon manager at mastercuts

Salon Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSalon chain, guaranteed clientele, bonus every month if the shop makes its goal.

ConsHave to work long hours, the pay isn't that great for being the manager

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to keep managers pay them like your other salon chains, not a dollar more a hour when you work on a sliding pay scale and don't see a difference in your pay check.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
