Started out great then....
Pros: hours, ok benefits
Cons: management, pay
Unfortunately most beauty schools teach to pass the state test, if you are fortunate as a student to have an instructor that will not only teach you to pass the test but also how to succeed behind the chair, you found something great.
Regency's curriculum, old and new leaves alot to be desired. What ever happened to teaching?? Videos that are hard to follow for both students and instructors, not to mention outdated. New curriculum on ipads with hair cutting with no structure or basic principles. If you try to bring in outside educational materials to help students learn, you get in trouble.
Management is a joke because they are too busy trying to better themselves and let problems fester and then when addressed do nothing about them. They play favorites, and it really doesn't matter how good of an educator you are, if they don't like you they will look for every reason to get rid of you. If you try to move or grow, forget it! It's ok for them to be out shopping, taking extended lunches, personal calls, and playing games on their phones.
Coworkers, that's another story, you have some great ones and then others that think it should just be fun or think they know everything and belittle students and coworkers alike. Working in any job has it ups and downs with coworkers, but when things get out of hand and management does nothing for years, it becomes an impossible place to work.
The only good thing I have to say is that the students bring much joy when they grasp the concepts you have taught them and watch them become successful!
