Stylist (Former Employee) – Marietta, OH – July 22, 2018
My typical day at work started out with a positive attitude and smile on my face saying hello to my girls. At fiesta I learned a lot, from more trendy haircuts to newest hair techniques. My experience for working with fiesta was 7/10.

You get paid even during slow times. Never allowed to turn away a guest even if closing the salon at night. Mostly worked alone wasn't even able to use the bathroom and our salon was out of products we needed most of the time.

The company has seen several different CEOs in the past few years. The pay is not living wage for a professional job. When asked about pay raise you are told to do more work to raise your commission (basically having clients pay your salary)
The company focuses too much on numbers and retail
Stylist (Former Employee) – Evansville, IN – December 1, 2017
Upper management only cares about numbers and they treat you like a number everyone I have dealt with does nothing but lie to protect themselves. They're supposed to lead by example but they're the ones doing the most damage to the company. Their insurance is very expensive you can't even afford it. It took away basically all benefits. I've been a hairstylist for several years and my commission was barely 40%. They don't care about you the only care about how much money you bring into the company. They even did away with Supply and tools for stylist and did away with continuous Hands-On education.

I did learn a lot in this company because of the employees. But there are a lot of cons in this business. 30 percent of commission for what we do is not a lot for what work we put in. It has a huge turn over base! Its a huge chain and if the salon has something a little different like writing our names on mirrors or decorating for holidays we are getting in trouble for it. I believe there is a lot of improvements.

When you're first starting out, a place like Fiesta is a good place to build clientele and learn the ropes of the business side of the salon. I had great coworkers and would gladly return if given the chance.
A typical day at work consists of completing client consultations and performing the services they request as well as give them tips and suggestions on styling and maintaining the hair. Keeping a clean salon and providing good customer service.
