Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Fairfax, VA – March 13, 2014
Managers and coworkers are great and become into a family. Easy outgoing people. DSW is not just selling shoes it goes beyond that and becomes enjoyable and you get to help people with different occasions that might have.
Hair Stylist (Former Employee), Feasterville, PA – February 17, 2014
Pros: stablized pay
Cons: everything else!
A typical day at the Hair Cuttery is sure to make you want to run out of the door before your shift is over! Management is not reliable nor do they play their role as "team leaders" very well. Everything is a competition there. If you're going to work in a salon you should work with people who support and help you. At the Hair Cuttery people will cut – more... you down to steal your clients or get the next person walking in the door. The only thing good about working there is you do what you love which is HAIR! – less
A place to gain experience and build a foundation for a career
Salon Leader/Manager/Cosmetologist (Current Employee), Pikesville, MD – February 5, 2014
Pros: free training, open-door policy
Cons: compensation plans for commissioned managers
Hair Cuttery is a wonderful company to work for as it offers numerous opportunities to enjoy being a hair stylist. There is free training available and also benefits. What each stylist puts into his/her job is what he/she will get out of the experience. As a Salon Leader (Manager) I have the opportunity to gain managerial experience while still being – more... able to interact with clientele behind the chair. If one can demonstrate leadership skills and the passion to keep the company on the right track for growth, managerial positions are not hard to achieve. As with any customer service position, there are down days... But the good outweigh the bad as the salons are always encouraged to create a fun atmosphere! – less
Cosmetologist (Former Employee), Winter Park, FL – January 29, 2014
A typical day at the work was always a great experience. I had the opportunity to not only help our guest look great but to help our guest feel great about themselves! I worked at a place where I looked forward to coming to work. I worked with great people who cared about the business we were presenting. I loved everything about this company.
The hardest – more... part of my job was to let go; I moved to another state which directed me into my new career which I am happy about.
The most enjoyable part of my job, again was everything. With great co-workers and lovable guest, I could express that the most enjoyable part of my job was delivering the love I had everyday for everyone. – less
stylist (Former Employee), Countryside, IL – January 23, 2014
Hair cuttery is an excellent salon and company to work for. The one I worked at had amazing management, friendly stylists and great clientele everyday. I learned much of the Redken line from shampoo to color and was able to provide all kinds of salon services from facial waxing to updos.
Job was very fun but tiresome, physically exhausting
Hair Stylist/Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Prince Frederick, MD – January 8, 2014
Pros: getting to help people feel good about themselves
Cons: hours were not flexible.
The work was enjoyable especially helping customers feel better about themselves. However the work hours were not flexible, and management was overbearing. Worked off of commission on half of services.
Hair Stylist (Current Employee), Bowie, MD – December 18, 2013
Pros: close to home
Cons: no money!
I thought most haircutteries were busy but not this one. It was like watching paint dry. The sad part about it is the employees doesnt seem to think this is a problem. Well I have no time to be wasting on a place that I don't make any money!
Stylist and Keyholder (Former Employee), Harrisburg, PA – December 13, 2013
A typical day was fun because you got to do something different everyday. New hair styles, but once again it came down to making the customer happy. Management was very easy to get along with. My co-workers were very nice and we worked as a team together. The hardest part of the job was when a young girl would try and color her own hair and it would – more... get messed up so of course she would come into the salon and i would have to figure out the chemistry of fixing it. The most enjoyable part of my job was when I was done with a client and they would look in that mirror and the smile on their face was amazing, that was the best part of the job. – less
Stylist/key holder (Former Employee), Hudson, MA – December 9, 2013
Pros: scheduling, experience
Typical Day at Hair Cuttery was that I was able to talk, and serve people on a normal basis. I have great personal skill when it comes to people, as well as one on one. I was able to give patrons retail that they would benefit from. I learned to be diligent in my education of people, products,organization, multi tasking, and time management. Management – more... was decent, they were not around to much to resolve issues. Coworkers were great people but could be drama filled. The most enjoyable part of the joy was being able to give one person a better look and being able to provide them top notch customer service. – less
