    I worked at Regis Corporation part-time

    Pros

    I'm hard pressed to find any.

    Cons

    Work your butt off for a horrible sliding scale which amounts to making barely more than minimum wage. Have the corporation feel so little loyalty that they only give four days notice upon closing a location. A location they were still adding staff to up to a week before this news was conveyed. Then get screwed out of a staying bonus, b/c no one in HR or Payroll knows what they're doing.

    Advice to Management

    COMPLETE OVERHAUL!

    Pros

    Co-workers are awesome with great attitudes and resilient minds.
    Free food for basic lunches provided.
    Opportunity to self-teach and learn by doing.

    Cons

    Ridiculous workload for the amount of staffing.
    No investments made in to quality staff - they bring in unskilled cheap contractors instead of hiring competent full time employees at a decent wage.
    Management is seen as meddlesome and menacing instead of good leaders. Little to no respect is given to employees, new ideas are ignored or shot down, disagreements with management can and has lead to demotions, pay cuts, denied promotions.
    Management frequently misrepresents future improvements and opportunity to grow - they say better things are on the horizon, but only long enough to keep you working harder - then they fail to deliver.
    They expect harder work for less pay, they don't backfill vacancies and expect the remaining staff to cover the extra workload with no extra pay. There is next to no room for advancement and we make significantly less than employees in similar positions at different companies.
    Extremely high turnover from low employee satisfaction results in bigger burdens on the people who stay and even more unskilled contractors coming in.
    No investment in proper technology. Buying low cost equipment, poor quality internet connections, buggy software and entering in to contracts with vendors who have bad support and bad products had caused endless suffering the to salons and to salon support.
    Shoddy equipment fails, salons lose sales, support can't help them because of poor quality contract employees, so they just send out more inferior equipment.
    Focus is so heavily put on taking care of our salons, but only if it doesn't require spending money to provide them with better technology and support.

    Advice to Management

    Start actually living by the company values you wave around.
    Be HONEST with your employees, don't pretend like things will get better just to keep people from leaving. Level with them on the anticipated difficulties to come.
    Be ACCOUNTABLE for the problems your teams are facing. Your employees have no say in their futures, bad decisions made by leadership strongly affect the employees, so start recognizing the bad decisions instead of just telling the employees to work harder.
    Be INSPIRING and open to new ideas and changes. Listen to your staff because there are some talented and insightful people who are too scared to approach leadership with proposed changes for fear of angering leaders and harming their career potential.
    Be RESPECTFUL to your employees. Treat them like capable adults. Stop looking at them as seat-fillers, listen to their suggestions and please, please pay them better.

    Pros

    I've been with Regis for almost 13 years and I couldn't ask for a better company to work for! They truly have the stylist at the heart of their focus and give us so many tools and opportunities to maximize our business, all we have to do is implement them! I feel so supported by everyone above me, my SDL is awesome! There are classes that we can attend to learn the latest trends or brush up on our techniques, either in our own location or in the area, tools are provided, they offer benefits for part time employees, the list is endless. I feel Regis truly cares about our satisfaction and want us to be happy in our careers.

    Pros

    Great training, lots of traffics.
    Great managements if you are at the right location!!

    Cons

    Matrix color line aren't the best.
    Awful retail commission. 8%...
    You get paid minimum wage if you are not on comission.

    Advice to Management

    the person who is selling the products should get more than 8% for the retail commission. Please provide a different color line because Matrix is so harsh on people hair!
