I learnt a lot of things as it was my first job out of hairstyling school. My managers were nice, helpful, and patient while I was still learning. They were also my co-workers as it was a small salon. Hardest part of the job was the salary, you don't make much hourly as a hairstylist and there's really no way to make more so you work for your tips. Most enjoyable part of the job, I loved doing hair and the people I worked with were very nice. – less
Assistant Manager & Stylist (Former Employee), Vancouver, BC – February 6, 2014
Pros: great conversations. :)
Cons: when we were busy due to no appointments taken.
A typical day at magic cuts was mainly enjoying the clients that came in.. Always lots of small talk so it never was a boring moment having someone in my chair and being able to converse with them.
I learned a lot at this job.. I learned how to deal better with the public and what their needs were.. And to give that to them.:) I also learned how to – more... close the business and deal with the money at the end of the day and take it to the bank. Always honest.. Whether you didnt want to hear it or not.. That I did appreciate because this is how I would learn to grow. My co workers were fun loving people as so was myself.. So that was always a good experience. The hardest part of the job was probably the time frame in which you were given to do a hair cut and make sure it is as is should be. That was a learning experience simply because as time went on.. Just like anything else you repeat.. You get it. And it becomes much easier. The most enjoyable part of the job was the smiles.. The chats.. The people around,, I was on my feet all day in a job like this and I would have never even realized it for the people that I was able to spend time with and enjoy.. – less
