Will take over your life for minimum wage
Shift Manager (Former Employee) – San Dimas, CA – March 17, 2016
I worked at Supercuts for almost 4 years. I was a shift manager for most of that time. Although our main manager was a bit disorganized, my coworkers were like sisters to me, and our store/personal clients were awesome. That being said, they pay you minimum wage (maybe like a quarter more- fifty cents if you're in a management position.) they expect you to work long hours, are not flexible with your schedule, and basically will take over your entire life. You will not have a set schedule or be able to call out sick. You might make $500 for the store in a single shift, and it won't matter. they have this system where you make a "service dollar" which is a (very low) commission-based percentage of the total amount of services you perform, but this is cumulated from a two week pay period, so chances are, it'll balance out and you won't ever get much from busting your behind.
A lot of customers will treat you like you're unknowledgeable because you "just work at Supercuts" even though you'll actually receive a lot of continued education. Supercuts will not allow you to take customer info down, so don't think you'll be able to build clientele and take them with you.
I'd say it's a waste of time, because you won't be building clientele. BUT like I said, you do get a lot of education and experience in customer service, color and cuts. I learned a lot from my 4 years there, so I don't regret it. I would just recommend spending only two years there, tops.
Continued education, customer service experience, getting your feet wet in sales and services
Ridiculous schedule expectations and pathetic compensation
