Bad Management/ Terrible Training/Very low Pay for what they expect
CSS (Former Employee), ArizonaJune 19, 2014
Pros: discount on product
Cons: poor management
Typical day at work is pretty routine, everything you need to know is shown to you in a couple hours. Poor management no training by management they pass you off to one of the css who will show you how to use the register then show you how to clean. All the new people are eager and excited about their "new" job so those that have been there for a couple – more... of months stand around or go into the break room and sit around. Lack of professionalism and management skills. Manager sits in her office all day and gossips about her employees with other employees. Managers promise you advancement but if your doing good numbers for them they will hold you back. Managers continue to send people out to pick up supplies for the salon, bank runs or for their lunches no compensation for mileage.
No Team Work, stylist are the bread & butter so they do not have follow the save standards as rest of the employees. – less

Assistant to Regional Manager (Former Employee), Dallas, TXJune 17, 2014
Pros: all around great oppurtunity!
Cons: management often took advantage of their title
As a manager you were not required to handle customers which allowed you to ensure the staff had what they needed and the store was functioning well. The continued education was great! I also enjoyed the professionalism and the ability to train staff to feel great about following the companies Best Practices!

SALON-SPA COORDINATOR (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOMay 2, 2014
Pros: half off services, discounts on merchandise, the plaza location
Cons: short breaks, tough stylists, management
A typical day at work usually started out slow with daily opening duties (making duties list, making coffee, etc). Working at the Country Club Plaza always made for a busy day, and there was always something to do. Management wasn't always inspiring and at times made you feel like there was no choice. There was never really a hard part to being a Salon – more... Coordinator, once the training was over and you got into the groove of things, it all came pretty natural. The most enjoyable part of the job was the environment and getting salon services at 50% off. What I learned and took away from Beauty Brands was how to coordinate a salon/spa; on top of the experience that I already had. – less

Productive and interactive place with customers
Customer Service (Current Employee), Colorado Springs, COApril 29, 2014
Pros: high energy, good attitudes

A job with a lot of benefits but not great people
CSS (Former Employee), Overland Park, KSApril 21, 2014
Pros: products, confident women
Cons: rude women
My day consisted of helping women with all sorts of small problems that could change the way they looked at themselves each morning.
I learned a ton of product knowledge i.e. how to keep your hair healthy, and how to apply makeup.

"STUDIO" (COSMETICS) MANAGER (Former Employee), Katy, TxApril 2, 2014
Pros: fun coworkers
Cons: everything stated above.
Horrendously outdated, management did not know anything of what they were doing. Management changed every month or so, and nothing as to what I was expecting.

Fun filled days at this salon
Senior Stylist (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: continued education, some compesation on own money spent going to other education classes or hair shows, flexible scheduling
Cons: benefits for full time only. have to keep an average of 32 hours a week to keep benefits
Beauty Brands is a great place to work. The management works with your schedules for work and personal life. All the Stylist I have come across working with this company have been beyond amazing. Very smart and determined individuals who try to help with everything in the salon. The company offers continued education through classes taught by team members – more... who are trained in the education. – less

Beauty supply store and salon
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee), Keller, TXJanuary 25, 2014
At Beauty Brands, the customer was the main focus. We sold professional hair, skin and nail products with a hair salon in the back. Knowledge of the products was the main focus in helping find what the customer was needing. With the products ranging from $3-$200 it was very important to know and work with the budget of each person. The greatest part – more... of working here was to see the customer come back and tell us how great the products worked for them and boosted their self confidence just because it changed the way they looked or made them feel. – less

Great opportunity to learn and grow management skills. All other daily duties are placed in resume, of course things change day to day. Which makes the atmosphere a fun environment.

I had a lot of fun working here. Great place to work for a first job.
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXDecember 12, 2013
Pros: free products
Cons: lunches/breaks were sometimes postponed
A typical day at work consisted of helping and greeting every customer. Some needed to be checked into the spa and salon and some needed help finding a product or gaining knowledge on products. I learned so much about how to give excellent customer service and how to deal with all types of people. The management was strict but fun. I developed relationships – more... with all of my managers. Beauty Brands was my home away from home. I enjoyed working with all of my co workers. Everyone was so sweet and helpful. We all had each others back. The hardest part about my job was that everyday was different. You never knew what you were going to walk into. You had to multitask through out your entire shift which could get tricky but I enjoyed staying busy. The most enjoyable part about the job was learning about all the different beauty products we sold and getting to try them out and take them home. It really helped you know what was good product and bad product for different clients. – less

Hair Stylist (Current Employee), Florissant, MODecember 3, 2013
Pros: each and every employee including management are amazing people
Cons: primarily commission only makes it hard to have stable income
Beauty Brands is a great company to be a part of it is filled with lots of energy and great people there to help with all your beauty needs! I work at Beauty Brands on Sunday's as a hairstylist, but back in 2004 I worked as a shift manager. I love the industry and company I am looking for something more full time, stable, and possibly a new career direction

Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Humble, TXOctober 31, 2013
Pros: gratis, employee discount, paid training
Cons: low pay
I worked as a shift and then assistant manager for 3+ years but was passed over for a promotion in favor of someone from outside of the company, had no salon experience and had not worked anywhere in over a year. My district manager said I was not ready but what she clearly meant was that I was not one of her favorites. They also do not have a lot of – more... minorities as store managers or district managers and the pay is low. I enjoyed the atmosphere, the gratis, my co workers and training. Also, with what I was being paid I could not afford the insurance or to participate in any other benefits such as AFLAC or 401k, as a single mother of two children I could barely afford to shop there or get services done even with a 50% discount. – less

Customer Service Specialist, Receptionist (Former Employee), watauga txOctober 26, 2013
Pros: free treatments and products for up-selling!
Cons: short hours
Getting to meet new and keep clients coming back, i had more knowledge of the salon/ customer service industry on a high service scale. Management was very to the T no flaws. Loved learning about new products for our client base and getting to tell them about it, up-selling is my strong suit!
