Horrible Owner, terrible company
Sales Associate (Former Employee), EdmontonMarch 28, 2013
Pros: staff discount on products

Owner will take advantage of you then tell you how useless you are. Pay is very low, don't waste your talent with this company.

good to stay in industry
sales associate (Former Employee), Edmonton, AlbertaDecember 29, 2012
Pros: a job
Cons: pay, advancement, cheap company, poor incentives, owner to cheap
Needed a change from salon, wasn't a horrible wage, and I was guaranteed a management position. Worked my bum off, was friendly to everyone, took initiative, tried to cover shifts and volunteer time, GUESS WHAT..... they didn't assign me to a store, there was no advancement, I was a grunt pg at a very poor wage for my qualifications. So after being – more... jer*** around time and time again. Working overtime and not getting paid. I'd had it and left. Other staff had even commented on how wrong the whole thing was, who'd been there longer. The owner of the company itself, was rude, and I'm sorry to say but quite cheap. We would work ridiculous long hours with few to none breaks at the hair shows, and she'd treat us to "only one" cheap chocolate, that I had seen at the dollar store. You get what you give, and I've been letting every professional in Alberta know what this woman truly stands for. Since there I was hired at a main professional international beauty distributor, where my store was recognize for outstanding achievements, exceeding quotas, and have went on to be a Trainer. That's what a good company does with talent. – less

A great starting place
Customer Service Manager (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABApril 25, 2012
Pros: cost on hair products
Cons: not a whole lot of appreciation for what you do.
Overall it sure is a great place to work. We have an awesome sales team and administration staff.
We have great clients and they make your day the most enjoyable, helping someone and getting a thank you is what its all about.
The whole staff at IBS are a pleasure to work with.
It was hard being in management, challenging more than anything. There is – more... a some unorganization or unclear work loads there.
I did take from there though, the abitlity to handle difficult situations, difficult people, and a great work ethic. – less

Good for a first job
Inventory Clerk (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABMarch 6, 2012
Pros: friendly coworkers, easy work, monday to friday
Cons: favoritism, not much room for advancement, short notice for working weekends, lack of communication
Not an over-all bad place to work, could use some improvement in management. Lots of trade show and inventory work.
