    Pros

    -working with my best friend
    -get paid to sit on my butt all day

    Cons

    -0-2 appointments everyday
    -you get paid minimum wage, no chance of a raise ever
    -only allowed to miss 6 days in a year, get told to quit if you miss more days than that and that you can reapply after you are done missing days
    -DM thinks the salon is in perfect order even tho everything is broken, so no need to fix anything
    -we were taught to be clean and organized, that is not the case it is horribly disgusting and no one seems to care about it
    -most managers are very inexperienced

    Advice to Management

    -love your stylists
    -raise the pay
    -update the salons
    -hire managers that know how to run a salon not just guessing they are doing everything right

    Pros

    Busy location, lots of freedom to be creative

    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.

    Pros

    For being out of school it's a good place to start!

    Cons

    It's a corporation and what's making things difficult for us!

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved in your individual salon needs. Updates, sales, etc.

    Pros

    Great salon manager that was willing to help me learn as I was just getting my cosmetology license.

    Cons

    Co workers didn't want new stylists being hired in. District manager was rude and down right cruel.
    Pay checks were always off and questionable.
    Never knew when I was scheduled to work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't fire stylists after only being out of school. Come up with a program for new hires that allows them to grow and develop technique.

    Pros

    I really love working for regis. I have been an employee for 6 and a half years.
    great career progression, you can go into management, education and also the creative team. Good training courses and a lot on offer. Also train managers in HR these days.
    Most salons tend to be in good busy locations do lots of walk in guests.

    Cons

    Unrealistic targets for comission.
    Goal post gets changed for monthly bonus.
    wage for managers are very low compared to othe companies.
    Use to get a lot of incentives where you could win holidays and gadgets, don't do this now due to cit backs.
    staffing tends to be tight in each salon so can be a nightmare when organising holidays.
    have to rely on tips and comission to boost your wage.

    Advice to Management

    Make it the way it used to be.
    Review managers pay when they ask, I've not had a pay rise in 5 years when I know the senior management have.
    Some salons needs to be invested in and refurbished

  10. Its a good place to start off but not a lot of room for growth

    Pros

    The stylists i worked with were great and we worked well together as a team, no thanks to corporate or upper management

    Cons

    I worked for a Regis salon for 2 years before i was terminated for what the company perceived as wrong doing. Regis is now attacking individual stylists using scare tactics via corporate phone calls that corner stylists, making them feel their job is secure if they go along with what they're saying. They set up a payment plan for the stylists according to what the company calculates they lost due to discounted services and special circumstances that corporate has no concern about as many of them know nothing about hair. As soon as they have you make a downpayment on the plan they had you sign along with your bank or credit card number, you will be
    suspended for a couple of days and terminated a couple of days later and ordered to pay.
    By the way, if you find yourself in that situation, do not sign anything or answer their interrogation, because it's all bogus until you sign. You will not be keeping your job any way you look at it if you get on a corporate call with a leader present.
    We were a salon of 8, they did this scare tactic to myself and the manager of the salon and 7 of us left along with our clientelle because the environment became too unbearable work in. Because of the way the company went about things, they took a salon that consistantly reached 98% of service and product goals and took it down to zilch.
    This company is great to work for if you enjoy an environment where you're made to feel like you'll never do anything right by upper management and love working for low pay and benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up, start appreciating your stylists, look for another job...i've read plenty of reviews about Regis and nobody at any level is safe or secure in their position.
    For corporate: you better start trying smarter tactics to earn your bottom dollar before you run every salon into the ground and nobody has a job
