Hair Stylist (Former Employee), Cleveland – June 24, 2015
My manager was also one of my instructors in school. Of course school doesn't teach you everything, so she tried her best to teach me what I didn't learn in school. Looking back, the position wasn't as bad as I thought it was then.

Stylist/Colorist (Current Employee), Jennings, LA – April 15, 2015
Pros: Fun co-workers
Cons: short breaks, low pay, bad managment
Busy atmosphere with great co-workers. I learned so many new hair and customer service skills. The management changes often. I thoroughly enjoy being a hair stylist and interacting with all my clients. I always make sure my client is pleased with the service. Hardest part of the job is the schedule. Everyone is required to work every weekend and we also work until 8pm some nights.

Pros: good tips, manager worked around your schedule, great learning experience
Cons: not enough money, understaffed
a typical work day would include clocking in doing towels checking clients in and servicing them.

My co-workers were very helpful and knowledgable when it comes to hair, they were also good team players,we all helped and respected each other. The hardest part of the job would be multi-tasking when I would be the only worker in the salon. The easiest part would have been dealing with the customers and helping them with what they needed – less
Hair Stylist (Former Employee), Gilbert, AZ – September 2, 2014
A typical day all depended on the customers. There were days were i was bored out of my mind, and there were days where I barely had time to run to the restroom, it just depends on area and time of year. – more... I enjoyed working here because I had the oppurtunity to meet amazing people, and make them feel beautiful. I also had the oppurtunity to learn new techniques from other stylists. Unfortunately when I was there, the compensation or benefits were not great. – less
Hair Stylist (Former Employee), Midland, MI – July 7, 2014
I did not like being the only person with respect for my clients as well as my co-workers. I was the only one maintaining cleanliness and doing the laundry. It was filty when I would come back to work after a day off and it got to be like I was a housekeeper and not a stylist.

Pros: located right in walmart
Cons: always felt uncomfortable
I loved getting the chance to work with hair. I loved the clientel I obtained while I was employed here. I think it could of been managed better.

Cusomer service was very important in working with this company. I learned that if you don't take care of your customers, someone else will. I learned great customer skills with this company.

Co-workers was an enjoyment to work with. They made my job a little easier by doing their jobs. The hardest part of the job, was working on schelduled days off. The most enjoyabole part of the job was interacting with customers and hearing some of their stories about their life. – less

Pros: convenient to shop in walmart and you get to work by yourself a lot
Cons: minimum wage, no restroom, untalented manager/coworkers
This place has such a high turnover rate because they treat their employers like trash. They should be ashamed of themselves only paying minimum wage for all the schooling we went through. No bathroom, no loyalty-you give up the fun in your life for nothing.
