Salon PS is a great place to go to work each day making senior citizens happy!
STYLIST (Current Employee) –  Riverview, MIJuly 8, 2016
Salon PS is a newer company that specializes in providing quality Salon service to all our senior citizens. They also publish a fantastic magazine that they provide free of charge to all the seniors. They call it a magazine, I call it a book. Its well done and includes everything senior. Including large print, pages for younger visitors, games and topics that will bring back memories.

They hire their stylists as employees. Then they provide all that we need except our electrical tools. If a stylist enjoys being with the seniors, its the perfect job for a younger woman.
Pros
Built in clientelle
Cons
The job is hard on your body

manager unprofessional
Hairstylist (Former Employee) –  CaliforniaJanuary 2, 2016
You are having to do everything. From pedicures, manicures, waxing and all aspects of hair.
I started at new place and had to set most things up myself. Puting everything away and taking all rollers out of wappers etc. Marking labels for clean, soiled disinfected. Also had to get maintence to help put wheels on dryer and to hang different things on walls.
Manager never gave me support I needed as she was always to busy.
Manger told me because it was a new place would get salarly plus commission. Ended up I made $3.50 for 6 hours after commission.
Had to stay 1 hour after working to wash and dry towels for free.
This company and manager is not worth working for.

Do not work for this company
cosmetologist (Former Employee) –  MAJuly 20, 2014
The company requires way to much for 50% commission. They continuously add more work to schedule without compensation. They only find fault never giving any praise. The manager lied about the amount of revenue the salon brought in. I was making 400.00 less monthly than expected per the managers numbers .The only thing that is worth working there is helping the elderly community. I feel bad for the elderly having this type of company running the salon. I was the 4th cosmetologist to work there in 6 months. The residents don't deserve to go through that. They need consistancy!!!!!
Pros
working with elderly!!
Cons
don't make tips!!

Worthwhile rewarding work
Stylist (Current Employee) –  Denver, CODecember 4, 2015
Seniors and children are similar in that they are hard work, but rewarding. The time listening to their stories is amazing. They love getting pampered so they look forward to coming in regularly. Customers are right down the hall! As a worker we don't pay for any products for clients.
Pros
Rewarding work, regular hours, commission pay
Cons
Time off can be difficult--normal for stylists in any salon, somewhat monotonous.

Can be tiring, but for a good cause.
Hair Stylist (Current Employee) –  Montgomery County, MDSeptember 4, 2013
At the end of a work day, your exhausted, hungry and ready to go home. The clients, whom are elderly can be sometimes hard to work with due to wheel chairs and them being dis-formed. Some are mean but then there are the ones who you just cant help but love and they are the ones that make it a little easy. It's somewhat of a fast paced job and at the end of the day when your done with all your work and you tally up your earnings...half of it goes to the salon and half to you through commission. Its not an hourly paid job although it should be or at least less in commission because you're not really working for what you put out, especially if you already have an idea of how a real salon works as far as pricing.
Pros
insurance, you don't pay for anything such as products and some tools
Cons
no breaks if your busy, 50/50 commission

Administrative (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHJune 10, 2015
Each day was the same: a "bucket full of crabs". For the educated and hard working, your knowledge and experience will be left at the door because it doesn't seem to apply here.
