worst company ive ever worked for
n/a (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVOctober 18, 2018
This company is awful! They over work and disrespect their staff and managers. They require ridiculous hours of work, dont give breaks, change timeclocks to deny any earned overtime, ask staff to work off the clock, and engage in discrimination. The culture is terrible, the treatment of managers is boarderline abusive.

Fun environment horrible management
Hairstylist/Cosmetologist (Former Employee) –  Naperville, ILSeptember 20, 2018
Love working for Drybar loved doing hair for our clients. Hours sucked I’d be put on lunch for 2 hours+ because of “labor” which I get but it’s not fair. Getting called off multiple times a week. Almost impossible to get a day off without it being an issue. Your allowed to take vacation but have to give notice 21 days in advance. But the week before you are supposed to be off management will tell you we over booked and you need to find coverage. If you can deal with this then awesome but I really think it will get old.
Pros
50% off products
Cons
Everything but doing hair

Unprofessional
Bartender (Current Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LASeptember 5, 2018
A typical day at work includes checking in clients, getting drinks/snacks/ helping other coworkers with duties, and managing/scheduling appointments accordinlgy to the weeks schedule.
I have learned great marketing skills, customer service skills, and multi-tasking skills.
Management was extremely poor, though this is only pertaining to the Baton Rouge location.
Workplace culture involved a lot of unnecessary unprofessional conflicts.
The hardest part of working at this location was working with coworkers that do not want to be a part of a team or professional work environment.
The most enjoyable part was the customers I came to know and talk to ever visit. They made the job worth it through challenging aspects.
Pros
Friendly customers, discounts on products, free blowouts
Cons
No benefits, advancement, paid time off

Hairstylist (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 30, 2018
Overall Drybar is a fun, up-beat, fast paced working environment. You meet tons of clients throughout the day and have 45 mins to transform each client that sits in your chair. The music is always good, vibes are great.

Cosmetologist/Hair Stylist/Educator (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAAugust 6, 2018
I love the company and everything they stand for but unfortunately, not many other people do which makes it hard to move forward. Hardest job to leave.

Assistant manager / Receptionist (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCAugust 6, 2018
this is a great place to learn blowout techniques and promotion techniques for selling products.
The stylists are very nice and as long as you are focused on the main goal of satisfying every client then work will be very fun,.

Sucked
Stylist (Former Employee) –  La Jolla, CAJuly 16, 2018
It was fast paced and the receptionists steal commission. Don't trust anyone just get in and out, hard work, and if you have back issues I don't recommend.

Sweat shop for stylists
Stylist (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYJuly 12, 2018
It got so busy most times, you don't get breaks, you sit the manager gets mad, you take a little break, the client get mad because she's been waiting an hour, but you just did 3 clients in an hour and you're tired and have to use the bathroom then you get your client complaining how her appointment was an hour ago smh if only they knew but i doubt they care. They're understaffed but still over book and the clients take it out on stylists and bartenders. You get paid $2 less than minimum wage because you get tips, which is unfair because they work you like a slave...My co workers got me through the year I'll miss them
Pros
Co workers
Cons
No breaks, overbooked, low pay, stressful hectic environment

Glamorous on the outside, disastrous internally
Stylist/Receptionist (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 7, 2018
Stylists are overworked, underpaid, don’t get breaks, forced to work past their scheduled time, clients are nasty. They pay them below minimum wage and take from their tips. Stylists also don’t receive commission on services. Revolving door with managers, nobody stays there long once they see how it is ran, or they are there and miserable. Poorly managed, “higher ups” are completely out of touch with what is happening on the ground. Stylists are sent home early and hours are cut frequently when it is slow. They can’t staff the shops because nobody wants to work there.
Pros
Once in a while a great manager comes along, but they don’t stay longer than a few months-a year
Cons
Pay, hours cut, poorly managed, overworked, no breaks, angry clients 95% of the time

Sweatshop blow-outs
Receptionist/Bartender (Current Employee) –  Roslyn Heights, NYJune 12, 2018
Where do I start? On slow days, we have to call stylists off or make them take breaks. If they don't want to take a break, they're expected to clean- which is NOT what they went to cosmotology school for! On busy days, stylists work their entire shift without a break, barely a moment to eat anything all day because they're handed a ticket for another client the moment they finish. Corporate constantly overbooks their salons with appointments for "buttercup" stylists, ignoring how many stylists are actually working, so the salon very often runs behind- ruining the entire expierence for the clients. Front desk staff constantly takes verbal beatings from clients over appointment times running behind, complaints about the call center which has been outsourced to the Philippines, complaints about the booking process through the website or mobile app- none of which would be such an issue if corporate cared about the business they're running. The company has a great concept but they're executing it so poorly. Stop overbooking your salons to get more money, because it's going to end up costing you when clients either complain and get discounted/free blowouts or stop coming alltogether.
Pros
discount on products, staff does eachother's hair for free, comission on products sold, failry flexible on schedule
Cons
short or no breaks, high-stress environment, poor care/concern from upper management
