    Pros

    Employees & manager are awsome. Busy location. Nice people.

    Cons

    3 lights burnt out ( since may), shop needs to be remodeled, outdated, computer VERY slow, Regis wont even let us take a dollar from the til to get a new garbage can, not enough supplies for everyone, not enough pay for stylists, were not students/children/receptionist/electricians/computer technicians. Were hairstylist. We are there to cut hair NOT write down numbers for a WIG board, and to get people's emails/phone numbers. Guests want to come in, get a 10-15mins haircut and leave.NOBODY wants to give out personal information just to get a haircut. Not enough staff on the floor. Loosing money because we have to work alone and guests dont want to wait. cant have any personal photos on the wall or mirors, Not able to book appointments for alot of services. Employees very underappreciated. Been with Regis for 8 years & never had a raise. Thats not right. REGIS needs to educate themselves on taking care of thier employees and guests. They will just continue to loose business if not. Which is a shame because a few of us have alot of customers who would leave if we did. Maybe someone from head office should work in the shop and do 20 guest in a 6hour shift, clean, write down wig numbers, keep track of how many guest u used product on, keep track of how many emails you got & then tell us we don't deserve more money & appreciation. NOT a fun place to work.

And get OUR LIGHTS FIXED. Its pretty hard to cut hair in the dark!!!!!!

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Extremely 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 Management

    There 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Disconnect 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 Management

    Evaluate 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.

    Pros

    Best of both worlds: Lots of walk-in opportunities, plus a steady request clientele, great experience, great training, good scheduling, continuing education. Lots of free product.

    Cons

    Difficult to hit numbers for raises, benefits are fairly expensive, hiring decisions often happen out of desperation and as a result, there are often inexperienced and unprofessional stylists that make the whole salon look bad. Management is unsupportive and offers no insight or guidance when looking to increase clientele and making raises. Most conduct policies are vague, and management does not enforce the few rules that do exist.

    Advice to Management

    Make promotions more attainable, and create a program to help guide stylists to move up in commissions.

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Product and tools are supplied.

    Cons

    Paid on commission and it is very low. Starts out at 38% and can only go up to 43%. Must wear all black to work and there is no reimbursement for this inconvenience.

    Advice to Management

    Think about a higher commission so the turn over rate isn't so high.

    Pros

    Super relaxed environment at least at my location, great for building your clientele.

    Cons

    Mia and Maxx (owned by Regis) closed 2 weeks after I started working there, got transferred to a Regis and that one closed 2 years after I started there. minimum pay, hardly any education. I did get a $250 dollar bonus after Regis closed though.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to charge above average prices, you should consider classes for your employees.

    Cons

    Not enough hours, low commission rates, difficult to get raises, uneven treatment of employees

    Advice to Management

    I was constantly being reprimanded for silly things. My manager had the poorest technical skills I'd ever seen and would pick out every flaw in the work of others.
