New Hire Beware: High Turnover Rate!

Working at Aveda was rewarding and depressing at the same time. It was rewarding to be in a position to develop and prepare young adults for this amazing beauty industry. The team I worked with were a great group of supportive women, but the leadership duo were micro managers and controlling. It’s so unfortunate that the owners of this franchise institute would constantly change the rules for the employee/students handbook, fire employees almost every other month, and there were more meetings and fun days than there were class sessions.Quick note: If you’re hired to shadow another employee, more than likely they’re about to get fired, vice versa. I’ve always felt bad for those students who didn’t receive a great learning experience due to the very high turnover rate of educators with different teaching styles. They will claim high standards when in reality they’re controlling people who provide minimal to no training.

Pros

Salary

Cons

Too many to list.

Hello "Former Employee"!While we appreciate you sharing your "experience", we find it odd since we have not had any recent turnover on our Esthetics Team in quite some time. However, we are ecstatic that you enjoyed the compensation/benefits and the group of supportive team members that have been with us for many years. Good news is that our students continue to enjoy their "fun days" while also continuing to have a 98% State Board Exam Pass Rate as well as a 100% Job Placement Rate. With that said, we take this feedback very seriously and are happy that you moved on and have found a new home that supports your strengths! We wish you all the best on your career journey!

Aways Progressing and Evolving to ensure Success

From the first day I started educating at Aveda I have been excited and given all I could ever need to ensure my students success. What really stood out to me was that the students wasn't just a number or a profit to the institution. I have witnessed several occasions where they have went over and beyond to guarantee a students success. Educating isn't just a job for me its a calling and my passion and I have finally found a school that feels the same way as I do about educating future professionals for the Beauty Industry.

Pros

Teamwork, Passion, advanced training, benefits, Aveda Culture

Turn over rate higher than McDonalds

Everything about this place is a joke, from the people who own it down to the products they sell and "education" they offer their students. No real room for growth and plenty of favoritism played here.

Awesome place to work!

I truly enjoy where I work and the people I work with. The students are top notch and so creative and talented! I grow as a professional every day and that is very important to me. I believe that you get out of every experience what you put in it. Put in good..., you get the idea 😉

The company as a whole

Not a good place or people to work for. Turn over is very high and stressful because your more worried about if you’ll going to have a job day to day. Then rules and handbook changes often.
