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 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.
