What would you suggest Sally Beauty management do to prevent others from leaving?
Theories of why an employee may leave a position are vast. Perhaps most importantly, is clear communication, a clear set of expectations, goals, and then building the skills to do a good job. Often a position may be a stepping stone for the applicant, and management should schedule to continue staff projections, by being proactive for the event of a person leaving.
1) ALL Sally's should have a recycling dumpster. I work at a tiny, low-value location and we still receive anywhere from 75-100 boxes a week for shipment, and they all have to go in the garbage. 2) ALL Sally's should be able (if anything, required) to turn their lights off at night. We are required to leave our store lights on 24/7 to "prevent theft" although it's apparent all of our theft happens during hours of operation. It's a waste of electricity. 3) Either there should be 2 closers a night each night, or each Sally's should have security. Closing alone is dangerous, especially in sketchy areas, and especially when employees start out at 18 years old. 4) Each location should have an Assistant Manager. I've worked 2 years at a small location and I've seen several managers get so overwhelmed from the amount of work they take on that eventually quit. 5) Pay raises should be given out more often than once a year, and they should be worth more than an extra quarter added to the already low pay rate. I have been with the company for 2 years, I have consistently good numbers and good performance, yet I only make 35 cents more than an employee who got hired today would.
If you have experience with doing hair but are not a licensed professional will they still proceed with your application, or are they more so looking for licensed cosmetologist?
No longer required. Everyone starts st the same rate.
Everything. Unless your a manager. Then your job is to make your employees as stressed and overwhelmed as possible while you relax and do nothing most days
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Sally Beauty a better place to work?
Hire someone like Lean Enterprises and do a complete bureaucratic overhaul. The problem isn't the minimum-wage workers or even lack of customers, it's corporate's lack of direction and organization.
Explain the skills I have to work at Sally's and know the products of the store and what you are selling to customers.
How long is an employees lunch break? Does it vary in every location? Or is it a mandatory 1 hour lunch break.
No, no is mandatory, but in many places when you buy the lunch, you loss 15 minutes in waiting, so 30 to 45 minutes is good,
