    I worked at Regis Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are the best. Professional, hardworking and committed.

    Cons

    CEO doesn't know the industry and what it takes to run company-owed stores. Regis has been in a slide since Hanrahan took over. Used to be the best hair salon company in the world. CEO is turning Regis into a franchise company because he cant successfully manage operations internally. Sad to see Hanrahan run the company in the ground. Stock price now at $12.50 versus $42.00??!

    Advice to Management

    Get a new CEO who knows how to motivate employees and run a successful business.

    I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Love that our RD and SDL's truly care about us we see and hear from them all the time!!!! Our RD recognizes Bday and anniversary; she also sends thank you emails. The new leadership has inspired me to be the consultant and not just the stylist. I left and came back to Regis because of the leadership changes; people are talking and it's good things that they are saying!!!!

    Cons

    Need to look at pay, to be more competitive with the industry and help stylist be able to build their career with Regis.

    Advice to Management

    Keep giving ongoing education to be better stylist for our guest.

    I have been working at Regis Corporation part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The managers I have worked with at Regis have all been very nice.

    Cons

    Scheduling is not terribly flexible, and at Cool Cuts for Kids I often work 8-9 hour shifts completely alone.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to schedule requests, and maybe don't have stylists work alone, it can be very stressful.

    I worked at Regis Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Dying malls, Low traffic but walk-in customers were very nice.

    Cons

    As a Salon Leader, you will be little more than a very poorly paid ($10 an hour) baby-sitter unless you bring your own very strong clientele. If you bring your clientele you risk losing some because of poor staff attitudes. There is no support to get rid of uncoachable/untrainable poor performers or staff with bad attitudes. Many staff only want to make their hourly wages and tips because if they make too much money they won't continue to get government welfare. They have no interest in really building their business which means salon leaders don't bonus. The insurance benefits they offer are greatly overstated and I had nothing but trouble with their insurance/benefits department. They were unresponsive and couldn't seem to be able to process basic paperwork. Mid-level management is a joke. They have no original ideas, waste your time and are very happy to stay where they are for years. They tend to be stale, boring and never cut it themselves in the real world. Salons are staffed with those just out of school or those who can't make it in a private salon because of their work quality and are totally dependent upon walk-ins. Same with other Salon Leaders. They are stale and overworked but content to stay in their positions for years. The salons are old, equipment is old/poor condition and they are located in dying malls. My experience with them was bait and switch. Nothing was as promised. In my own marketing research; I found that because they have done such a poor job of being relevant; the average millennial age prospective customer doesn't know who Regis is. Their salon fronts look like at best; a low quality beauty supply. If you want to make $10 an hour with no support in an extremely unprofessional setting; Regis is where you belong. Do your homework about your location before applying.

    Advice to Management

    Completely restructure middle management. Tie their pay completely to the success of their salons and Salon Leader Peer Reviews. Empower Salon Leaders to get rid of dead weight and increase pay scale to attract real talent. Millenials don't know Regis is a salon. They think you are a Beauty Supply store because that's all that's visible. Your marketing is ineffective and dated as are your expectations. Billing yourself as having a premium quality experience is a joke. Only the mediocre need apply.

    Pros

    Worked with some great stylists

    Cons

    Regis only cares about what the reports say. If you are in the green with sales. I put 5 years of my heart and soul into my salon and was ranked #1 many times as a stylist and asee a salon. They forced me out on purpose. They needed to put blame somewhere for the district being down in sales. I was the blame. But I wasn't the only store down
