Busy and Productive Work Environment
Cosmetologist (Former Employee), Gilbert, AZFebruary 6, 2015
A typical workday included providing the needed services for customers as well as selling products. It was a great learning experience considering at the time I was fresh out of school. We maintained a professional work environment and built great relationships with our clients as well as our fellow co-workers. The hardest part of the job was the low customer count; however, it was a fun productive learning experience.

a very productive workplace
cosmetologist (Former Employee), chesapeake,vaDecember 2, 2014
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. Also it would include stocking products, taking callls and keeping a nice neat and safe enviroment for clients as well as staff members. 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

Fun salon with caring stylists
Hair Stylist (Former Employee), Gilbert, AZSeptember 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. 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.

Poor attitude
Hair Stylist (Former Employee), Midland, MIJuly 7, 2014
Pros: walmart
Cons: everything
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.

Great place to start out your cosmetology career
Hairstylist (Former Employee), Green Bay, WIJune 18, 2013
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. I did not appreciate the derogatory comments about an ethnic group exchanged by the workers and the manager. The hardest part of this job was to keep professional while others were being very unprofessional.

Stylist (Former Employee), Princeton, INMay 27, 2013
The company as a whole was a very good company to work for. I wish that it could have been busier but like all salons they have a slow season. The most enjoyable part was to get to do what I love.

Fast pace work environment.
Stylist/ Manager (Former Employee), Hattiesburg, MSFebruary 15, 2013
Pros: free haircare products, training and knowledge classes.
Cons: short breaks, and sometimes no break.
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. Management was always changing, and untrained. We would have to train them when they was hired. After going through several managers, i was offered the position that i held for 2 years. 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.

great experience
Salon Manager (Former Employee), Marietta, GAJanuary 16, 2013
I typical work day was steady can sometimes get extremely busy. I learned from this job ways to multitask and be effective. Management Could have been better simple because some task made it hard to find find time to be personable with customers and fellow co-workers. i have had a very eclectic group of co-workers. the hardest part of the job was trying to sell the business. I loved my clients and making sure they enjoyed the experience and left satisfied everytime.

Good for just getting out of school
Cosmetologist (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZOctober 18, 2012
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.

Fun Place to work
stylist and manager (Former Employee), philadelphia, msJanuary 26, 2012
Pros: great income, and healthcare, good tips, and great customers
Cons: rude customers, working every saturday, missing sundays from church
This job was great for me but I feel it has to do a lot with what region you are working in. The area supervisors and the manager you have will have a lot to do with if you will have a good experience with the company or not.
