Fairness and trust are not words I would associate with this company. "Business is business" and things follow that effect.
Support from management
Leadership supports lacks greatly. Little to no direction or guidance given.
Employees don't really work together. It's a team, but everyone has their own tasks separately.
Freedom to work independently
Workload structure is not fairly given. Some people do little work- others do the majority. Everyone gets paid the same. Not too fair.
An email is sent out every month to discuss progress. Mainly points out what employees lack and need to improve on.
This is a fair employer when it comes to hiring. If you have the skills, they will consider hiring you
Attitude towards older colleagues
Not many older employees work for this company. Most are in mid 20s. Long standing employees are not appreciated or seen as loyal.
This company says they like to promote from within, but doesn't give current employees the tools necessary to succeed in their promoted positions. Not much training is given but more responsibility is given.
Overall compensation for your work
Artists make $9. Estheticians make $10.
Artists that have taken on more responsibility make $12.
Trainers make $13.
Assistant manager makes $14.
Managers make 50k + per year
Exec or directors make $30+ per hour.
Depending on personal needs, salary can be satisfactory or unsatisfactory.
Office / Work Environment
Working conditions are good. The salon is clean and organized for the most part.
Blushington does not allow for work- life balance to freely flow. It's difficult to take days off. Especially Saturday's. Vacation days are not guaranteed. They will call you off from your shift if it is too slow. Hours may vary and are not guaranteed.
This company prides themselves on their image and their brand and try to influence their staff to promote the Blushington brand.
I never felt that my job was stable. They could find anyone to take my position at any time. Everyone is replaceable.
For the most part this company is accessible to disabled employees.
This company has cameras and security systems to protect employees. No training is done.
Anytime I have felt accomplished it has been through personal goals that were set above what was asked of me.
Inclusive / Diverse
Suggestions for improvement
- Appreciate your staff. Give raises when they are due. Keep your word on bonuses and yearly reviews. Promote and properly train all promoted employees. Record time clocks correctly and do not edit.
What I like about the company
I liked that Blushington offered employee parking and the hours of operation were tolerable.
What I dislike about the company
I didn't like that Blushington doesn't appreciate their employees. That prompted employees are left with more responsibility than their pay is worth.
