Company Culture

A few of the hairdressers are nice there. But that's all. The managers gossip there and are very catty. I heard the worst things coming out of people's mouths when I worked there.

Support from management

No. No reals goals are set and the days just pass by

Teamwork

No, information is concealed and rumors get spread. Everything is lack luster and everyone gossips about each other and I could not take that "high school mentality" anymore.

Internal Communication

No one bothers relaying important information when you needed it. You always find out everything last minute

Gender Equality

Not really

Career Development

There is no room for growth. Minimum wage, no benefits, only a few hours each week. No potential to go any higher in the company when you work the front desk.

Overall compensation for your work

Employees are promised raises after 3 months but it never happens on time. You have to keep bugging management about it and eventually they do, or they don't give it to you. It's minimum wage and that's it. And you aren't rewarded for good work.

Office / Work Environment

Always too cold and dusty

Environmental Friendliness

No

Work-Life Balance

Better not call out sick, because management does not care. Even if you have a family emergency. I watched a co-worker cry because her family member passed away and the manager did not seem to care at all. This is a salon, not a high end company.

Job Security

I do not feel like positions there are stable. There are so many people that quit left and right, because they are being treated unfairly. I see new faces every day, and there is way too much turnover.

Handicapped Accessibility

There are no ramps located in the front or back of the building

Workplace Safety

There is no training for osha guidelines, even though there are a ton of hair dyes and chemicals that would be dangerous if spilled on a person or on the floor.

Challenging Work

No. And most employee just tend to stare at their phone because there is nothing else to do

Suggestions for improvement

  • Be more caring towards employees, more challenging work to make the day past by, actually give the raises that you promise to give on the interview, do not make fun of your employees.

What I like about the company

Employees can get 50% haircuts. That's really the only perk.

What I dislike about the company

Not enough hours, no raises, very catty employees, and no ones private information is safe.
