You have to work very hard to make money in this company.(as a hair stylist)
Offer a lot of chemical services if you want to get paid.
Haircuts and blowdrys all day will surely burn you out fast.
Every man for himself when it comes to the walk in list.
Very competive environment.
You are responsible for receptionist duties(scheduling other stylists appointment), janitor work(mopping floors),
selling $80-$120 in retail weekly, greeting every customer that walks in, rebooking each client, while always having a smile on your face. You have to deal with high stress and impatient clientele. Don't take it personal.
Make your money and mind your business.
Very cut throat,no management or bad managment.
You have to clean,do the banking,do reception,open,close without compensation.
If you need time off,they make it extremely difficult.You will never be able to take time off
During the holidays.
Very downtrodden stylists,no hope to better yourself,never any fun treats like lunch,a birthday gift,let alone anyone saying happy birthday to you.
The pay scale keeps on getting less and less and you have to sell a whole lot of products every week
It's inconsistent with cooperate rules being fairly enforced! To much inconsistency... Absentee management and open partiality amongst workers and unprofessional managers. Entirely biased for the most. Hard to make a scent ppaycheck. Empty hype and promises.
This is just a very terrible place to work. Ive been there almost 2 years and pretty much everyone i started with is gone. When its busy youre just expected to do one person after another, get them in and out as fast as possible with no alotted break. If youre hungry you gotta find a way to sneak out. You do all the work and they take half your pay. Management is terrible, they dont know whats going on but are ready to dish out points for any reason. The color is terrible, its cheap and runny. U have to work at least 1 night and 1 weekend day no matter what. You cant take appointments either unless its your scheduled DAY! Its ridiculous, if people need to make an appointment with u, oh well, they just gotta call the morning of and put their name on the list and maybe youll get to them eventually. I cant stress enough how much you should not work here. The one and only good thing are the cool people i work with (not management).
I found working for Hair Cuttery, That upper management was very cut Throat and no communication if they didn’t like you within a month you were terminated or demoted. The CEO would do well by listening to his stylist and Salon Leaders.
When the assistant manager is there is extremely stressful and makes it for a very long day other than that I love my job I love my team that I work with with the exception of the assistant manager that can turn a good day into a bad day and minutes
Each store is a little different, mostly poor management
