Supercuts is a company to jumpstart your career. They have been known to just provide haircuts for such a long time. Up until a few years back, Supercuts began to offer more services, such as: hair color, deep conditioning treatments, etc.
There is always something new to be learned in the hair industry. Supercuts is known for ongoing education and training - which is awesome for new stylist who've recently graduated cosmetology school.
Working for Supercuts was like a rollercoaster, at times. I have worked for the company for a few years and did enjoy most aspects of it. Ive learned from a few great managers, but I have also learned from a few not-so-great managers. Either way, I learned. I have gained more understanding on better ways to lead a team, and have also learned how to do better for a team and as a leader.
The hardest part of the job, in my opinion, would probably be being patient with stylist turnover. In our chain, we had quite a few stylists who came for a few months then retired to a different occupation or salon. In the clients' perspective, it was difficult for them to continually trust a different stylist every couple month. That made retention difficult at times.
Again, there were quite of few matters that I disagreed with; however, a few teammates and clients made it totally worth it.
short breaks, slow retention
