Guest Service Associate (Former Employee) – Fairfax, VA – March 13, 2017
The job itself was pretty laid back and easy, but at both locations I worked management was poor and there was not a lot of opportunity for advancement. Perfect for a college student, pretty flexible and the hours aren't too late at all.
if you don't do a Brazilian in15 they will page you until you finish

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.
Store Manager, Sales/ Marketing (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – July 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".

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.
Waxer (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – July 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!!!!

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.
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.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Glen Carbon, IL – July 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!
Discounted waxes, free product after training, free waxes when training waxers
Corporate changing promotions, occasional angry customer, some days are much slower than others!
Sales/Reception/Customer Service (Current Employee) – New York State – July 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.
Guest Service Associate (Former Employee) – New Hyde Park, NY – July 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.
Events & Marketing Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – July 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.
Guest Service Associate (Former Employee) – Illinois – July 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.
Guest Service Associate (Former Employee) – Howard Beach, NY – July 11, 2017
Perfect for applicants fresh out of school, looking for employment that best fits their schedules and provides some income to bring home. 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.
Guest Service Associate (Current Employee) – Livermore, CA – July 7, 2017
This job is very easy-going and its a great job to have while you are attending school. It gives you a very flexible schedule. You get discounts on products and waxes, which is great. Everyone at this center is super nice and welcoming.
Guest Service Associate (Former Employee) – Westport, CT – July 7, 2017
The European Wax Center was a well managed work environment with friendly and patient co-workers who were willing to teach me anything at any moment. I enjoyed working there because it was calm and productive.
