if you don't do a Brazilian in15 they will page you until you finish
Wax Specialist (Former Employee) –  NCJuly 27, 2017
They don't care about customers just how fast you can rip wax off someone. You have to leave your client and go to the front desk and tell them you are going to be 5 more mins or they will page you over and over. Very disturbing to client especially if it is their first time.

Could be better
Store Manager, Sales/ Marketing (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 27, 2017
I worked for a couple who never could decide one what they wanted mutually. Made it very difficult to know what to do in certain situations. Also micromanaged. Always expected to answer your phone even if it is 10pm on a Sunday because you need to be "available at all times".
Pros
pretty work environment
Cons
too long to list

Short term job
Guest Service Associate (Former Employee) –  EnglewoodJuly 25, 2017
Good place to work if you are okay with living pay check to pay check and very little opportunity to grow with the company. It is a good job for kids in school or for people with not many responsibilities and bills to pay.
Pros
Discount on waxing and products
Cons
Pay is not good

You are just a number!!
Waxer (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHJuly 24, 2017
Terrible place to work! For a company all about women they could care less about you. Biggest turn over I have ever seen from front desk to management! The job it self is good and you have the possibility to make descent money. But they do not value anyone, your a number to them and replaceable. No matter how long or hard you work for them!. And have unrealistic demands that if you don't meet you will be fired. You will make them a lot of money and see nothing in return not even a pat on the back. Beware!!!!
Pros
Your guests
Cons
Owners / management

Geneva Wax center
Wax specialist (Former Employee) –  Geneva, ILJuly 24, 2017
Management sucks. The don't know how to do inventory. They mistreat their employees. Issues with taxes not being done properly two years in a row. Franchisee owner also is rude and does not care about his employees. Time off is hard to get.

Fun Workplace
Guest Services Associate (Former Employee) –  PennsylvaniaJuly 19, 2017
Easy and sometimes boring. Not much responsibility so typically just checking in/out guests (cash/credit card transactions), scheduling in person or over the phone, and answering questions about waxing/products. Besides that you sit around your whole shift and talk with the other employees or guests in the waiting room. Its nice to get commission but could make a lot more than 2%. Overall its a great job but definitely not one you want if you're trying to save/support yourself/pay bills. No chance of advancement.
Pros
% off waxing, % off products, set schedule
Cons
low commission %, not a lot of responsibility

Competitive, fun place to work
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Glen Carbon, ILJuly 19, 2017
I was very lucky to work at a center where all the ladies got along (not something that usually happens when you work in an all female work environment!) Discounted waxes and complimentary eyebrows are a huuuge plus. The training is diligent and they are continuously interactive with employees, keeping the sales associates as well as the waxers up to date on everything going on in the world of EWC. My only complaint was that corporate had a tendency to change promotions right before they were starting, so we had some customer complaints when we weren't able to do certain discounted waxing. Either way, this store is top notch and I would recommend anyone interested in sales and what's trending in the world of skin care to check this place out!
Pros
Discounted waxes, free product after training, free waxes when training waxers
Cons
Corporate changing promotions, occasional angry customer, some days are much slower than others!

Awesome Company, Few Faults
Sales/Reception/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  New York StateJuly 18, 2017
I was with the company years. I enjoyed it. Management could definitely use some improvement at times. I loved my clients and the majority of my coworkers. My job duties were incredibly easy and every year you are there you receive a raise which is nice. Did see a large turnover rate.
Pros
Easy job Duties
Cons
Unprofessional management at times

Easy job but management sucks
Guest Service Associate (Former Employee) –  New Hyde Park, NYJuly 17, 2017
There are busy days and then very slow days, the job itself is fairly easy once you learn all the scripts but customers can be very rude when a waxer is completely booked. Management is very demanding and rude with little to no reward. Be prepared to sell. Hard to move up and no real benefits.
Pros
Can take lunch as many times, nice guests
Cons
Have to eat at desk, ok pay

Not where I would want to work
Events & Marketing Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 14, 2017
European Wax Center does not compensate you fairly and is a stressful, and not productive place to work. While it seems as though this is a small company where you could actually have an impact, in fact it is quite the opposite. You do all of the work and get zero credit for it.

Okay job
Guest Service Associate (Former Employee) –  IllinoisJuly 13, 2017
Enjoy my coworkers the most. The jobs just okay, lots of scripts and try to get you to be pushy with sales (not my thing). Each location is owned by franchisees so hard to give overall review of company as each location has different policies.

Busy, short shifts
Wax Specialist (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNJuly 12, 2017
Loved working here, but it definitely took a toll on my body. A good place to work if you're a people person. Most of your money earned comes from tips.

Everyone is different, Definitely not something i thought of as a career especially with of the responsibilities that come with being a mother of 2.
Pros
commission + bonus
Cons
no benefits, schedules do not fluctuate

EWC is a good place to start
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Apex, NCJuly 9, 2017
EWC is a good place to start, but definitely not a place to build a career. The money is okay for one with no education, however the company does not provide benefits.
