As a full time student looking for part time work Stripped Wax Bar was the perfect fit. Flexible schedule, they accomodated all my exams and availibilty changes each semester.

.... It was a cliquey tight knit group and was manged unfairly. I would not suggest someone looking for a good work life balance and a company with good moral to ever work there.
