I feel for you. The management you have is bad. I can only hope that your GM or owner understands that because you are all saying the same thing, they should listen. You should get more credit as stylists. X Great Clips Northern California, 8 years.

Appleton, Green Bay and Sturgeon Bay WI total of 8 salons owned by the same owner. These salons are truly disposable jobs. Use you up, burn you out, short staffed. Owner cares only about his bottom line. Will not pay you what your worth. Devalues our profession with 5.99 haircuts. Clients so use to the coupon for cheap haircut they depend on it. Tips are also mostly based on a cheap haircut.you will make more at another salon do less haircuts. It truly a no brainier. This is where stylist who can not find employment at other salons go.
