A stepping stone
Paul Mitchell has a GREAT culture! However this establishment is not a good representation of it.
Support from management
The management is overwhelmed and does not work well as a team, making it hard to aid them by carrying some of the load.
Management has a very hard time trusting others to do a proficient job when assigned a task and therefore doesn't work as a team but rather a "micromanager" not conducive to a team environment nor learning opportunity.
Freedom to work independently
Micromanagement is all employees or contractors receive when employed at this establishment.
Management is timid when it comes to confrontation, so communication fails on all levels.
No there seems to be some descrimination in my experience. Unnecessary Pre-judgment of those for outwardly apperience etc.
Attitude towards older colleagues
There are none, intact there are no staff that have stayed around over the near 10 years of the businesses lifetime.
None that I have seen as employees do not stay here.
Overall compensation for your work
Hourly workers are overworked and under payed. Commission stylists just don't stay here, as they are not allowed to grow their business.
Office / Work Environment
The space is beautiful but cluttered, too full, and VERY disorganized, with far too many personal items present for a business.
They do recycle! But it often turns into a horsing problem rather than an eco-friendly gesture.
There can be work-life balance at this establishment but you have to demand it! Otherwise you are expected to live there! Manage trends to take advantage of younger less experienced employees that are not ready to stand up for themselves.
No, it is embarrassing to me and my clients. I hate to say
No, repairs that need to be made don't get done in a timely way, there is always something broken or malfunctioning.
The work itself is not challenging, the management may make a simple task impossible though, depending on their mood.
Inclusive / Diverse
Everything is run with a very cultured base, wether you understand why or not. It's not for everyone.
Suggestions for improvement
- I'm not convinced there is hope for the management here. Growth is a must in a business, and Jade Design Studio's management has not proven itself able to grow.
What I like about the company
I learned a significant amount about what not to do as a future employer! All in all that was worth my time and I believe I have grown from it.
What I dislike about the company
I do not feel they were truthful with themselves about what they can provide employees.
