A stepping Stone

1.00

Company Culture

Paul Mitchell has an AMAZING culture but it is clouded at this establishment by poor managment

Support from management

Management is inexperienced in supporting staff

Teamwork

Management has trouble allowing employees to work together from fear of a delusional mutiny

Freedom to work independently

Management cannot allow any autonomy for personal fear and need to maintain all control

Internal Communication

Communication is very poor within the establishment, as management is timid and inexperienced with formal confrontation of any degree.

Gender Equality

I have seen NO gender equality in this establishment as there are no male employees to my knowledge.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Management can tend to be passive aggressive when they feel like they are not getting their way. This is not conducive to a healthy work environment.

Career Development

As an independent stylist I have not been allowed to develop my career in this establishment due to severe unnecessary micro management.

Overall compensation for your work

The hourly workers deserve more for the amount of work they do. Commission stylists are compensated fairly.

Office / Work Environment

The work environment in this business is poor due to clutter, disorganization, and an excess of unessesary personal items that reside in the small space

Environmental Friendliness

This establishment DOES recycle!!! Although at times it seems to be more of a hoarding practice than true recycling.

Work-Life Balance

Work life balance can be achieved while employed here, but only if demanded by said employee. In my experience I had to take full control of my schedule in order to not be asked to stay at work from dawn til dusk plus some.

Company Image

There is not a cohesive company image here.

Job Security

I do not feel secure in my position here.

Handicapped Accessibility

YES.

Workplace Safety

Mediocre, there are many repairs that need to be taken care of that have been ignored.

Challenging Work

The work is not challenging, the unnecessary requirements from management however can prove to be VERY challenging. Ex: Sweeping the floor must be done in a specific direction due to the owners cultural beliefs.

Inclusive / Diverse

I'm not sure about the diversity within the establishment as there seem to be no staff members that choose to stay for any length of time.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management should take managerial courses and then apply whats learned in order to have a successful business in today's world. The management practices in place now are outdated and prove to stifle the business causing its growth to be stagnant and will eventually sink the company.

What I like about the company

The location is beautiful and despite management issues the owner is a very nice person.

What I dislike about the company

It is a difficult place to run your own business, which is required of you as an independent stylist.
