Honestly, I wasted three years spinning in circles.
Full time hairstylist at the salon (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 9 May 2019
Where to start. First I’d like to start off by saying, This place gives me anxiety. Every day was a high school dramedy with absolutely no one to turn to. Your managers tell the head office, head office bullies you into thinking YOU'RE the problem, not them. It’s your classic a abusive relationship. I loved my team, but the management made me feel as though I was a peon in the game of numbers and the only thing that matters is sales. Absolutely 0 support for the stylist staff, I didn’t feel appreciated, and I felt like I never did enough. They kept hiring new people, and you get pushed out, Making commission nearly impossible. I had number programs that I had to download on my phone, so they could make sure you know how terrible you have done for the week.I was belittled in the back room, with my name plastered for all other employees to see how my progress was not as good as anyone else. I was so stressed every, single, day. Bullying me into constantly thinking I’m the issue and then coming home to only be stressed around my family, over work, was enough to make me leave this place for good. I value humanity and empathy, and at chatters, you will never get that. You are a number. Nothing more.in the end I had to leave. Value yourself. You’re worth it!
Education, fairly flexible with hours, benefits
Hard to make money, no support for staff, feel like you’re replaceable
