it was a fast paced environment with a ton of responsibilities. Pay was low but they had great benefit plans. many tasks requested of me, were not in the job description, like opening and closing the school salon on certain weekdays, counting and balancing till of the school salon at closing, cashing out clients. those extra tasks were not compensated, but expected.

over worked and under paid. They make it hard to receive a raise with the excuse of " maxing out in a couple years" barely any training and a lot of expectations to prep a lot of things in your off time. Short staffed a lot.

it was definitely a great place to work. Every department I worked there in had such a great camaraderie, and everyone was willing to help each other out when possible

Poor management and no communication. The general atmosphere of staff interaction is against one another vs being an actual team. Was treated poorly from day 1, and instead of proper code of conduct was brushed off constantly. In the short time I was there the turnover was crazy basically 1 employee quit/walked out every month. Would never recommend anybody to take a job here.
Pros
Good hours, higher pay
Cons
Unorganized, unprofessional, constant drama

Absolutely horrible work environment. Provide minimal, minimal training and support in the office positions. The sink or swim attitude is incredibly ineffective. The office staff was too busy gossiping about the instructors and students to do anything properly or timely during the day. Absolutely horrible work culture, staff from other schools were extrenely rude and difficult to deal with. Especially The Kelowna office. My God.

I chose this school because I thought the discipline would be there. While I was in school the discipline was not there however I did learn the basics of hair styling, how to be a proper receptionist and how to get a long with other stylists regardless of differing of opinions and styles.
Pros
good instructors
Cons
lack of discipline

My instructors were great teachers, understanding and knowledgable. It was a friendly work environment and there more than enough clients to allow us to practice our skills on. I feel that I am prepared to enter the work force in the field of esthetics and the school also helped me search for work.
Pros
Small class sizes, hands on experience, knowledgeable teachers
Cons
n/a

A typical day of work will include lesson planning and presentation planning and then a 1.5 hour long lecture. I like to give a variation of teaching styles including auditory, visual and kinaesthetic.

I learned that education is a never-ending. I would mentor students but I also learned a lot from them.


Management was always clear with expectations providing syllabus information and resources.


My co-workers in the faculty were always helpful and great resources as well.


The hardest part of the job is to find ways to motivate students with different learning styles. I would vary my lectures, provide mentorship activities after class and try and be as available as possible.


The most enjoyable part of the job is watching a student apply theoretical knowledge into practical experience whether that be workplace skills or group projects.
Pros
free parking
Cons
semesters that weren't long enough to teach full concepts
