    Pros

    Payscale (hourly plus commission) You can make good money if you are willing to put in the effort.
    Flexible schedules, incentive contests, walk in clients because salons are in high traffic areas. Corporate office staff were always great to deal with.

    Cons

    A lot of demands on managers at salon level. We were responsible for completing all the administrative tasks but was supposed to do it at the same time while servicing clients. We were not given an Admin day. Our client revenue was expected to exceed that of subordinate staff while doing schedules, reports, inventory, banking and dealing with employee issues and client issues.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously need to give managers One day a week off of the cutting floor to deal with managerial tasks while not counting against our personal client totals. Corporate should consider taking the opinions of those who are working at salon level before implementing policy changes.

    Pros

    Good place to work if your store is staffed. Upper management is good to the ones who try and want to be there.

    Cons

    Worked to death. If the store is short staffed,which most are, you are expected to pick up the slack. Don't make any plans on weekends. you will work every one

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your stylists before they leave. You should tell them good job daily even if they aren't reaching their quotas because most of the time they are unattainable and no one from corporate cares about that.

    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.

    I worked at Regis Corporation

    Pros

    My manager was really great, was very flexible and easy to work with. I never felt like I was being micromanaged and felt like I was supported in my work.

    Cons

    My location had almost no customers during the week, and was only slightly busy on the weekend. It was very difficult to hit commission (if your sales commission isnt higher than minimum wage, you just make minimum wage)

    Advice to Management

    Managers like mine were great, keep people like that in management. Though I think the salon may have needed more advertising and less people working because it was so slow.

    Pros

    Weekends off. Set schedule of work

    Cons

    No room to advance yearly raises are a joke. No incentives for long term employees

    Advice to Management

    Management is a joke. They passify the associates when they have a concern. Good ole boys club. Yes men

    Pressure to get customers in and out especially if your in a busy salon,coupons and constant discounts, making you sell products and most of all having to answer phones,sign customers in and schedule appointments in the middle of your service.

    The salons would run a lot more smoothly with a receptionist and higher pay

    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.
