Stylist (Former Employee), Kailua Kona, Hawaii – August 27, 2015
A typical day at work was very busy and constant movement. I learned way more about communication with clients then ever before. Working at supercuts the management was great, they never came to see our salon very often because of how well rated our location was. All my co-workers were nice and very uplifting and always showing team work.The most important role i had at Supercuts was the ability to make someone feel so good about themselves.

Pros: fast paced
Cons: no benefits
Great atmosphere and management,has advancement opportunities but has no benefits available to stylists. Only perk would be a paid holiday if they put you to work before and after the holiday but no other benefits other than that.

Pros: Stability, Good work place, good management

working with the people has been one of the best thing about this job. Customer service and communicating is a must because there are so many different social classes of people that you have to work with. The staff and customers are great here
Professional Hair Stylist (Former Employee), evanston illinois – July 28, 2015
Pros: haircut specials
Cons: open on holidays
My day began with coffee with the girls and usually a tasty pastry wit the talk of what our day looked like. My knowledge of hair skin and nails was broadened through the work of self and others. My co-workers were pleasant and helpful and very compassionate about the work they did as well as I. The hardest part of the job was achieving a look for someone who didn't have the facial profile it needed to accomplish this goal. The most enjoyable part was the children and their ability to have an opinion while getting there hair cut it was a good felling to listen to the parents but also fit the needs of the child as well.

You don't have to worry about getting fired for simple things which makes you feel secure with employment. There is only so far up you can go in the company and you don't get much of a salary increase when you do advance.
Asst. Manager- November (Current Employee), Scottsdale, AZ – July 25, 2015
Pros: Breaks anytime, PTO after the first year.
Cons: Benefits and management
Typical day at super cuts can be a hit or a miss, all depends on the location and the management. When you get hired on you go to a training for a week called HSA after that you go back to do a color class after your probation area and that is only 3 days, it is fun when you have the right concept of the industry.
The training is extensive but although I learned some new techniques, they are more concerned with all the employees using the same techniques as opposed to sharing ideas to advance the quality of the employees' product. Also, they force employees to sell clients products they don't need just to reach the sales goals, and frown upon the employees that don't meet their sale goals, regardless of the quality of the employees' work.
Shift Manager/ Stylist (Former Employee), Spokane Wa – July 14, 2015
Pros: the attitude of the girls
Cons: Not enough pay or commission
The store was fun. Having the girls I worked with was great. My salon manager took great care of us so that we wouldn't get bored and had daily goals. Management was bad after that. I only stayed because of the girls.
stylist/assistant manager (Former Employee), El paso tx – July 14, 2015
Pros: good people\great customers
Cons: no healthcare or bonuses or incentives
I worked there for about 3 years. After just two months they moved me up to assistant manager. Pay was great tips were good my manager was awesome that store was slow so they closed it and moved me to a farther location and lost my clients cuz if it and they kept moving me to stores so I couldn't gain a steady clientele. They opened a new location which promised it was going to be busy and it was total opposite my numbers went down so my pay went way down my manager was managing two stores but this one wasn't her main one so left me with all the responsibility with a very low pay and owners didn't care they never bothered to give me and incentive for my extra work. They cut hours for other stylist so sometimes I wouldn't get a break. Bottom line if the store your working at is slow then you won't make any money. To make good money you have to really work your butt off. I ended up quiting. Owners don't really care about employees.
Licensed cosmetologist. Licensed manicurist (Current Employee), Midwest City, OK – July 12, 2015
good qualities, being able to meet new people and to talk with different people, being creative, and inventory. A typical day here would be like doing maybe 12 heads a day depending on the business that day. On a busy day it's haircut after haircut.
Hairstylist (Current Employee), Milford, PA – July 11, 2015
Nice clean place to work, fairly busy for a new business, Coworkers are management all work very well together, People in area are decent however clients tend to be iffy once in a while. Job does offer classes thought more general classes that educate you on new and interesting techniques to try.
