I managed a Magicuts for 2 years. I increased their product and service sales by 100% in the first 6 months. I was not part of the interview process of new hires. The stylists they hired had little skills, or ethics. It was nearly impossible to make commission, and if you did, it was because you worked 80 hours a week and then it wasn't worth it. Don't work here.

Competitive people, undercutting each other.

Negative environment to work in.

I feel that any issue I brought up was never dealt with and was made to feel like I was the problem for bring issues to management's attention. I feel we had a bad manager and district leader.
Pros

Magicuts was very close to a barbershop atmosphere. It was super busy and mostly men’s cutting. Excellent tips which was one of the perks of the job. Always was a 5 chair waiting time.
Pros
Busy

This place was fun to work out because of the different people you meet everyday. Unfortunately the salon closed recently. Was surrounded by talented people.

Great place to work starting out! Short shifts, which made it a bit hard from living in the country. A lot of buisness and very busy. Great place to start out your hairstyling career!

Management did not address issues of the troublemakers instead persecuted the victims for speaking up punishment was not working busy day, which only hurts the company in the long run

Between the locations, management and corporate run mess this business is failing quickly. You work yourself to the bone for little pay and even less recognition and appreciation. Honestly if you are looking to start your hair styling career you are better off putting in the time and effort into apprenticing somewhere that they see you as a person and not a dollar sign.

its ok if you became a hairstylist to do mostly seniors, men, children and basic cuts and colours for very low wages. But if you want to pursue hair as a career I would definitely stay clear of regis corporations, there is very little training, minimum wage, no advancement. Turned me off hair all together, I couldn't provide for my children on minimum wage.

This was my first job after completing my Cosmetology course at Burridge Campus NSCC. I did my job placement at Magicuts and was asked to work fulltime after my job placement was over. I was granted by the school the ability to leave school to go work and go back to graduate as I was ready for the work force. I was employed here until I decided to open up my own mobile business.

A good place to begin an apprenticeship program to apply training in a practical setting . Weekends were much busier than weekdays. The overall environment was a pleasant experience.

Great company to work for. Love head office. I enjoy the job just not the pay. Minimum wage doesn't cut it even with tips. Would love to see the owners spruce up the place and maby get more into 2017 and update the products.
