Pros: easy, gain experience
Cons: compensation, location, upper management, schedule, benefits
Smartstyle is inside walmarts. its ok. it was busy at first but then it slowed down to a hault. I was made to work long 8 hour shifts by myself because they didnt want to hire anymore people. I worked a lot of overtime and became exhausted. the benefits arent that good and the compensation sucks. only 38% commission to start. considering how slow it is, you wont make much. i didnt like how it was in walmart either. i love walmart but customers and most people dont believe a stylist working in a hair salon in walmart can do a good job. i felt i always had to prove myself. I didnt like being judged. i also didnt like the shopping carts being brought in constantly. it was a very stressful time for me at this job but i was a manager. as a stylist it wasnt too bad.
it is a good job to have right after school to gain experience.
