Lack of equality and no professionalism
Apprentice Nail Technician (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – June 9, 2015
My typical day at work when it was busy was to greet customers/clients with a friendly and outgoing personality, set appointments, answer incoming phone calls, and most of all give pedicures. I was in the process of working on a license to become a specialized nail technician. I learned the skills needed for pedicuring and making sure hygiene of the work place was properly maintained. My co-workers were considered to be my bosses also which leads to the hardest part of the job: Lack of professional leadership. There were no respect boundaries, no advancement opportunities, lack of adequate and fair pay by commission, and constant bickering. Although I enjoyed having flexible hours and absolutely loved working with people and holding very good, sometimes very personal, conversations, it wasn't worth the problems that occurred daily.
Extremely short breaks, no benefits.
