good place to work when manager was not there
Stylist (Former Employee), Fort Myers, FLSeptember 5, 2014
I was pregnant the majority of the time i worked her and the manager was not considerate of my pregnancy. the manager complained when i had to go to the bathroom a lot and said it had counted as my 15 minute break. the other stylist were great to work with but it was not a super fun place to work at times.

Awesome Place to Work
STYLIST (Former Employee), Hays KSSeptember 2, 2014
Pros: doing just hair
Cons: doing just hair
I loved the fast pace of being in a salon. Mostly walk-ins but we also were able to fit our own clientele in once we earned them.

Great starting place

Smartstyle is a great place to start for stylists who just graduated from cosmetology. You are always busy and if you work hard enough there is an opportunity for advancement

Cosmetologist (Current Employee), New Castle, PAJuly 17, 2014
Pros: tips
Cons: minimum wage pay
I learned a lot from working at SmartStyle, I met a lot of different kinds of people and had different conversations. When working with the public you have to be upbeat and outgoing, and working here helped a lot with that. The hardest part was pleasing certain people. However, I have met some really respectable people.

Worst Place EVER
Stylist (Former Employee), Killian Rd Walmart, Columbia, SCMay 23, 2014
Pros: learned a lot from other stylists
Cons: low pay, horrible management
The manager would be mad if you would get more clients than her, she didn't know how to be a manager in any way shape or form! She was running other stylist's client's out of the salon because she was jealous that they were doing well. Everyone in the salon would go to the DM about issues with her, but they would never do anything about it. Then when – more... it got to the point where I couldn't stand working with her anymore I was told I should resign! Instead of getting rid of the root of the problem, they get rid of good stylists. – less

Privides alot of education.
manager/stylist (Former Employee), az.May 7, 2014
Pros: able to move up
Cons: pay, management/company a
I was a stylist then became a manager. The pay was awful for all I had to do. The company was going through alot of changes but never seem to follow through. Overall I was comfortable there but you can't support a family on the pay they give you unless is all you do is work. I needed a more reliable paycheck.

Worse place I have ever worked at
stylist (Former Employee), fuquay ncMarch 27, 2014
Pros: very flexible hours, free services to stylists
Cons: awful management, no money, clients don't tip/ don't tip well, only hit comissio once in almost two years.
This place pays minimum wage, maybe if you're lucky 8/hr. None of the clients almost ever tip. They all expect you to do $120 colors for $45.00. The management is awful and almost non existing. You will never make commission. I've worked at two locations and got behind on my car payments. I had to manage the whole salon, do the schedule, inventory, – more... cleaning to make 5 dollars an hour after taxes with barely any tips. I tried to stay and build my clientele for a year. I built up but they never wanted to pay full price. I tried to do discounts at first but they never came back if i didn't keep continuing the discounts even though thy were extremely satisfied. – less

slow, unorganized
Stylist (Former Employee), East Peoria, ILSeptember 9, 2013
Overall i just didnt enjoy working here. You always worked alone. The atmosphere of working in walmart is distracting and confusing. People leave and you have no way to contact them to tell them its time for your haircut then they come back and are mad that you skipped them. my manager called in sick all the time. the layout is messy, if your doing – more... hair you cant see a client at the register or looking at products because theres a big wall in the way. A typical day at work was me sitting there for 6 hours cleaning and only having 2 clients. i learned more about color correction because most of the clients who come for color have fried there hair at home with box color. the hardest thing was they scheduled one stylst at a time so if you were busy it was hectic. the best part was probably getting free samples of products to try. – less
