Stylist (Current Employee) – Manahawkin Nj – August 20, 2017
Improve a stylists salary and the company will increase stylist longevity. Changing from hourly wage to commission of some sort would be best. Encourage one team building workshop maybe every other month. This would be separate than a team meeting. Stylists would come together to do something other than hair etc.
Franchise name brings in clients. The education provided to stylists is great as well as
Hourly wage is horrible in Nj, commission would be better. It doesn't pay to do color as a stylist.
never have a set schedule always crazy hours and work every weekend. somedays are slow, some managers are great some are not, not all supercuts are the same it depends on the manager. hardest part of the job....not really is just if u have a good team you should be ok. most enjoyable part is every year they have a all staff party and also do games, and win prices.
Salon Manager (Former Employee) – Shakopee, MN – August 15, 2017
I like the overall concept for supercuts although they aren't common in the Midwest. I enjoyed learning their cutting and coloring techniques. I would love to see how the shop runs on the west coast where they are more common
Stylist (Former Employee) – Hamden, CT – August 14, 2017
very busy days with all kinds of clients and employees culturally. Many advanced classes were taught there and new products and cutting techniques were introduced to us to further our careers and keep learning. I was booked solid daily and made good money and tips. reasonable hours there and nice employees, we were like a family there and the clients loved us as well
Good place to start off right out of beauty school
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – August 11, 2017
Employees and management are bullies. Management talks about their employees amongst other employees and sister stores. Need management skills on how to treat and talk to their employees. Manager talks about shop business with her clients. That store just need new staffing starting with the store manager.
Meet new interesting people, diverse clients
Not a healthy enviroment, people steal from one another equipment and clients
Receptionist (Current Employee) – Napa, CA – August 10, 2017
Napa supercuts is probably one of the best places you can work definitely if you have kids or are in school they are very flexible with days off & all of the girls there are great ! As long as you do your job this work place is wonderful. The owner & the manager are just like family ! The whole shop is like a family once you are there for a little while.
Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Lafayette, CA – August 9, 2017
Base pay is very low, very hard struggle to male a living. Kep role in this job was sale and customer service. This was a client base role. If you lack in people skill this is not the job for you. One must have a license to preform this job.
Stylist/Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Christiansburg, VA – August 6, 2017
our co-workers/team are laid back and easy going but hard when need be. everyone is different thank heavens. every client brings something new to the table. education is available to anyone who wishes to learn and broaden their horizon
benefits, vacation, flexible scheduling
why be negative when positive ways are whats needed no matter what
A lot is expected from the way you work to the way you deal with insane customers yet the pay is not compensated for these every day stresses and absurdities. Prices went up 25 cents. Whoever is pricing does not know what they are doing. They should invest on the salon aesthetics and tools for their stylists to be efficient and modern for best services. Should provide more training classes to better the staff. So much opportunity but they waste money on the dumbest things
Great location to work for Management is great However, the company pays its employees like complete garbage.' you Assistant manager only makes $7.60 an hours (plus whatever "spifs you get from their "sliding scale") And store manager starts at $9.50 They're also taking tools away from stylists, meaning, we will be responsible for replacing/fixing THEIR equipment if it decides to stop working one day. I've loved working for supercuts, but because its owned by Regis (because lets be honest, that company has been dying for years now) its hard to want to build a career there. It's hard to make an adequate amount of money to actually support yourself or your family.
Cosmetologist (Current Employee) – El Cajon, CA – July 31, 2017
Great place to start out in the industry. They provide quite a bit of education although I wish it was more. The establishment that i work at is very laid back and all of the girls are amazing. They're a lot of fun. Our owner does a lot for us, ex: pays for the whole shop to get lunch, takes us out for a Christmas dinner, makes sure you stay on your goals, and even let's us know when we're doing a great job.
Hairstylist/Cosmetologist (Current Employee) – Alpine, CA – July 30, 2017
Supercuts provides a steady income and has an opportunity to build a solid clientele. The training provided is useful for future experience and helps get a clear understanding of proper haircutting techniques.
Hair Stylist/Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Franklin, MA – July 28, 2017
Supercuts was my stepping stone out of hair dressing school. I learned a lot in the HSA program and really progressed with the knowledge that I took from it. I don't see Supercuts as a long term salon for anyone who doesn't want to move up with the company. But overall it is an ok place to work.
