Positions Pay needs to be reviewed

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The lack of pay and raises is horrible. Certain departments that should be considered important because without it everything will not function correctly. All that we do and be so underpaid. While other departments get paid way more and do minimal work. Unacceptable

horrible

If you are of color or speak up for yourself and those around you.. You're DONE. They aren't clean, and only care about NUMBERS. Students mean NOTHING! The studets are what keep most employees there.

Pros

Seeing the students succeed.

Cons

EVERYTHING ese

you must love what you do

To work here you must love what you do. other instructors are not fun to work with. But teaching is rewarding and the hours are not bad at all. It is what you make of it.

So unorganized

So unorganized. The students are unhappy due to FA issues that have been a part of the school for a really long time. Which in turn makes it difficult to do the task at hand. Most employees are not qualified for their positions.

Great people like family

I'm a student here and I love the staff. The instructors are there for you, help you when you need it. Help you understand and help when you dont think you can do it

Bad managment bad coworkers

Upper management is okay but they are constantly lied to by the directors. There is no sense of unity. If you truly love to help students this isn't the place to work. They are about numbers. The owner is cheap the buildings need a lot if work and they don't buy supplies.

Milan Institute Of Cosmetology

I absolutely love the Milan Institute of Cosmetology team. One of my most favorite places I've ever worked besides for my own business. I've gain an immense amount of knowledge to then help teach my students exceed standard education. The education at Milan is Outstanding, no other school holds a comparison. The pay NEEDS to increase, the cost of living has increased by 400%, wages need to reflect the inflation.

Would not recommend anybody to pursue their education at this institution.

Very unprofessional, incompetent, dishonest management and employees. Only interest is to lie to students and families to get them to enroll. No room for advancement, very low salary with no increase, but they do expect you to meet all their deadlines.

For profit Horrible

This school is on HCM2 status which is not a good status to be with the Department of Education. This is the status that often gets schools shut down completely. Campus director was horrible. A true liar and a very pro admissions person and does not respect financial aid at all. Admissions is very unethical. Management still has not learned their lesson.

Amazing

Milan takes the time to train and educate in the field you are entering. Really enjoyed working for students who are ready to further their education by entering a field they love.

Depending on the manager, its a great place to work

In the end I had a horrible experience with my boss. She was transferred in and did not handle the stress of the job correctly nor manage the school in the manner she should have.

Worst place I've ever worked in my life!

Unorganzied joke of a Corporation and school overall. Zero communication, behind the scene scandals on a daily, high turnover rates, poor pay, enormous work load, zero team efforts, no one takes responsibility for their actions or lack thereof, and those poor students! They are charged thousands of dollars for junk, unprofessional products, little direction and little hands on assistance. Total ripoff and a joke to even cal themselves a Corporation. The place is falling apart, cockroaches in break rooms, the cieling leaks when its raining, the air conditioner is broken almost every summer. Save yourself many health issues and seek other hiring companies. Milan Bakersfield is a NIGHTMARE!

Pros

None

Cons

Everything about the place

I love this school

It was such a great experience I recommend this school to anyone willing to put their time into doing Esthetician as a career or cosmetology. They also help you look into different career opportunities.

Ask too much and don’t pay

Nothing is ever the same. Micromanage no one is willing to help one another. Management is a joke! The instructors get the bad end of the stick on everything. They are always being blamed no matter what happened.

Pros

Benefits, paid vacation and sick time

Cons

Bad management

Not a good place to work

Poorly ran corporation. Executive team refers to and treats staff as subordinates which was a huge moral booster. The standards that are expected are almost impossible to accomplish due to Management and Corporate being on different pages. Students are pushed through classes with poor performance and lack of professionalism and not held responsible for their actions. Benefits were stripped away because lack of profitably due to the company"s finamcial aid being under scrutiny from the department of education.

Pros

Assisting students was rewarding

Cons

High turn over/ no room for growth/
