After reading a lot of these other reviews I can verify that there is big differences between EWC locations. I was a GSA or front desk person for a NJ location and the employee turnover was way too high and too quick. Waxers were constantly stressed about steady income, trying to support families, while management wouldn't update the schedule or made hours confusing. Waxers and employees were also fired, in my opinion, too easily, therefore making it even more stressful to work in a very high stress fast paced environment. They welcome you on calling themselves a "family" for you to find out it's only competitive and people up front 'stealing' each other's package sales/ commission opportunities. This created drama and tension among associates rather than a driven attitude unfortunately. The owner of this individual franchise also didn't seem to be particularly on top of his business and maybe why the management is so poor. I was hired with 4 other new girls in April and all but one have quit and it's only halfway through May... I felt driven when I first got this job and wanted to push myself but seems it was just constant anxiety and not worth it. They also told me there was certainly room for advancement which might've been because they read all these reviews lol.
Clean, starting pay above minimum, potential for good commission
Gossip, poor management, high employee turnover
