Hairstylist/Cosmetologist (Former Employee) – Saratoga Springs, NY – March 29, 2017
Loved it here because of the amazing coworkers I had. Management is changing and going downhill so everyone I love is quitting all at once. If that doesn't tell you something about this place, then I don't know what will.
Busy salon, decent tips, lots of walk-ins
Management does not value employees, schedules are poorly constructed, no receptionist, the computer system is outdated and slow
RECEPTIONIST (Former Employee) – Eagle, ID – March 27, 2017
It was a very fun, easy going to place to work for but also very professional at the same time, all the employees welcomed me with open arms and a smile on their face and I was always treated with respect.
Head stylists - averaging 20 clients a day (Former Employee) – Hartselle, AL – March 24, 2017
A typical day was very busy. I learned how to work in a fast paced environment. My manager had much stress and a heavy workload. The salon had a very strict protocol at all stations. The hardest part of the job was trying to please everyone that came through the doors, but it was done to the best of my ability. I enjoyed getting to know my co-workers during my stay at the salon and made lasting friendships.

always busy the tips are great. I learned to be more dependable and confident as a stylist fun team and the location is quite popular place for haircuts near Arizona state university.the Hardest part ofthejob has to be the line for waiting sometimes it may get a lil backed up. the most I enjoy is the busy clientele.
Manager (Former Employee) – Camillus, NY – March 22, 2017
All they care about is making the most money. Just bust out haircuts and color to have a good average ticket and a short amount of time. Paid by how fast you are. Don't care about your family life or pregnancies. As long as you are fast and selling retail. Work all nights and weekend

Everyone wants to play boss/ special treatment for favorites
Hairstylist/Cosmetologist (Former Employee) – Kernersville, NC – March 16, 2017
Bad management. Shows favoritism. Nice girls but manager has a bad attitude. Manager should rotate long shifts between the workers. Manager should leave her problems from home at home and not let her employees hear her arguing on the phone
Hair Stylist and facial waxer (Former Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – March 15, 2017
I started out enjoying by work days in their salons. That feeling fell when I realized I was not seen as a person with needs. Working in the hair industry it is going to test your endurance and patience at times with long work days and the occasional trying client. The problems surrounded the lack of concern towards previously agreements on scheduling needs and health issues. Managers take time off as much as they choose to leaving the remaining stylists to cover hours and shifts. I personally left after needing abdominal surgery that me unable to stand or do much on my own. I was wanting to return to the salon but was met with rudeness and dissatisfaction from management when I was unable to work only two to three days post surgery. At this point I worked for this franchisee roughly two years. There was little opportunity to move up in the company including wage raises and promotions.
I do have to say that this company provided me with outstanding training. Because of them I am a much more talented hair stylist, more knowledgeable in retail sales, and am skilled as a receptionist. They provide mandatory training to all new hires in hair cutting, coloring, and styling. The will test your patience with their high volume of clients daily and most stores do not have a receptionist. This leaves you as a stylist to step up to the plate and fill that role while also providing a service to your client.
Despite what I disliked about working with Super Cuts I loved my clients, my fellow stylists and how much I grew as a stylist.
Technical Manager (Former Employee) – Encinitas, CA – March 13, 2017
The company is a good place to work at when just starting in the industry but definitely not a place to build your career. It's filled with empty and unkept promises. They fill your head saying that you can advance here and there and it takes years to move up. You can be a loyal employee for years and get looked over for promotions by people who have been there for a few months. Get in there and learn what they can teach you and get out as soon as you're comfortable
Stylist (Former Employee) – Flagstaff, AZ – March 12, 2017
Good college job. Management was a bit unorganized. Often would have to open the store by myself, which being a women in a store alone, where it is mainly men getting haircuts is a little sketchy. Flexible with my school schedule. Long shifts, but decent pay.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – March 11, 2017
I took a job as a receptionist and it has been overall a very disappointing experience. The pay is terrible, schedule is a nightmare, and the management is disorganized. It's by no means a hard job, but it is physically draining. It would be worth it if the pay was enough to live on, but it's not.
Cosmetologist/acting manager (Former Employee) – Watsonville, CA – March 10, 2017
I greeted clients. Answered phones, cut peoples hair. Along with any other procedure they were needing at that time. Than working the register to have them pay for the service they just received. I also did the schedule, bank drop offs, and managed the other workers breaks and lunches.
the owner did not pay us hours worked. The owner broke several labor laws, We were always short staffed and it was hard to keep supplies we needed for our clients because the owner would not allow orders to be processed.
