Great experience to learn speed waxing, not really beyond that
Wax Specialist (Former Employee) – Round Rock, TX – October 1, 2018
Working at EWC was my first job out of Estie school and getting my license and it really did a fabulous job of teaching me how a fast paced wax salon is run and how to body wax with hard wax very well. I worked there for almost two years and can honestly say it was the best paying job I've ever had. However, I started having wrist problems about a year in and had to go to part time. I had a hard time getting my boss to be willing to let me work the hours I needed to continue, and therefore couldn't move up in the company as a result. I strongly suggest that if you work here, immediately get a chiropractor, and get a massage every week. The job is physically hard on your body, and there are no benefits beyond your regular pay. All the girls in my location were also pressured to do a lot of product sales.
My biggest con was that I had to sign a non-compete in order to be hired, which meant I couldn't work as a waxer within a 30 mile radius for two whole years. This is very limiting and something you need to consider carefully. However, they do have great training.
