Reviews for Mike's Tattoos

Reviews - What employees say

2.56 Employees say
0.00 Applicants say

Company Culture

No, no.

Support from management

Although you will learn everything within a month, the owners will keep saying you must learn to do things that have nothing to do with piercing to get out of the assistant pay grade of $10/day. Only one person who trained in the last ten years has ever done a piercing.

Teamwork

Co-workers treat newcomers as less-than-worthy of being in the industry.

Freedom to work independently

The work is not hard, but all cleaning, desk work, appointments, and errands must be done by an assistant who will only receive $10/day for at least six months.

Internal Communication

Information is given about the industry, but many employees are promised permanent position within months but are kept as assistants for at least six months.

Gender Equality

Women are always piercers here.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Senior workers are treated with much more respect and normally stay ten years or more.

Career Development

Good training, but no advancement available within the company.

Overall compensation for your work

One shift pays $10. Less than $2/hour. If you have no bills, children, or need for gas, you may not starve.

Office / Work Environment

Very clean, normally at a pleasant temperature.

Environmental Friendliness

Most equipment used for tattooing is sterilizable, which is good for the environment, and whatever must be thrown out is properly disposed of.

Work-Life Balance

New employees will work when told to, every day the business is open, and have to cover shifts for higher-ups without notice.

Company Image

All former employees seem to claim they were underpaid and overworked. The ones I worked with have quit due to the extreme workload and miniscule pay.

Job Security

If you don't mind making little to no money, the company will keep you.

Handicapped Accessibility

There is a wheelchair ramp in the back of the building, so the upstairs is handicap accessible. Employees need to go down a long flight of stairs to sterilize equipment and get supplies, though.

Workplace Safety

Very safe and clean.

Challenging Work

What they taught me, I was able to use confidently at a shop who layer highered me.

Inclusive / Diverse

Very old fashioned

Suggestions for improvement

  • Allow employees to advance! Most people can learn what they need in a month or so, but are forced to accept the position they're given for much longer at very low pay

What I like about the company

The shop is very clean and sanitary and the piercers are given great training.

What I dislike about the company

The trainees are not actually ever allowed to do a piercing because they would get paid a better wage once out of training status
