Pros: perks, fun students, creative industry
Cons: bad upper management, unkept promises, students out of control, cheap pay
I was at first excited about working here. The beauty industry is fun, exciting, and constantly changing. Our campus, though, had a horrible director - Never showing up on time (sometimes at all), never communicated to staff, did not appreciate staff, students didn't respect her (and as a result, thought they could run the school), she did not even know what was going on most of the time, and was only concerned about the school on the days that corporate would show up. The instructors were great and very talented, but wanted a stronger leader as a director. The other staff was good, too, but the admissions were only concerned about meeting their numbers instead of the quality of students, so we ended up with alot of students who were disrespectful, not show up to school, and would cause problems. The students who followed the rules didn't get rewarded enough and the students who acted up almost never got in trouble. Don't even try to reach out to upper management, they will ignore you and claim they never got emails or voicemails. Their employees don't matter to them, only numbers. Upper management will promise alot but will never come through. If you are looking for advancement here, don't be fooled, they will just as likely hire someone else outside the company even if you were basically promised the position. The position in general is fun, but with all the other drama, not worth their cheap salary.
